CNC Router definition:
A CNC router (Or Computer Numerical Control router) is a computer-controlled cutting machine related to the hand-held router used for cutting various hard materials, such as stone, marble, granite, wood, composites, aluminum, steel, plastics, and foams. CNC stands for computer numerical control. CNC routers can perform the tasks of many carpentry shop machines such as the panel saw, the spindle moulder, and the boring machine.
AMASTONE NEXT 4 AXES CNC ROUTER MACHINE
Next is a CNC Router machine with 3 interpolated axes + a fourth axis (lathe).
Designed for the stoneworking as marble and granite it’s also able to work on glass, plastic and wood materials.
All axes movements are carried out on ball screw and high-torque step motors.
Next is managed by the powerful and extremely versatile OSAI Open-Xs control. Thanks to this control, the axes movements are very smooth even at high speeds to avoid stressing the mechanical components.
Next automatically handles water and air. In particular, if the water is not present during the machining process, or the pressure is not enough, the machine stops and warns the operator; the same happens if there is no air. Air is very important because it is used to pressurize the electro-spindle bearings to avoid that water can damage them.
Next comes with an interesting feature called SFC (Smart Feed Control), a kind of an intelligent speed control. This feature allows the machine to automatically adapt the feed rate during cutting according to the electric spindle load. This means that if the machine has difficulty cutting (due to a hard slice of material, or a broken tool, too much tool sinking for an error in cam programming, etc …) it will automatically slow down its speed to the point where the load is in acceptable range values.
Next router is able to read the standard G-Code language so is compatible with the major CAD / CAM software.

FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
- Can I have a larger than standard CNC Machine?
Yes. We currently produce a Next-L version of the CNC stone router having a longer Y axis.
The Next-L comes with useful working dimensions of 1000 X 2400 mm.
The added cost of this feature is € 2000 (approx. USD 2300 )
- Can I use the CNC Router without water in dry mode?
Yes. The CNC Router may be operated in dry mode. Simply disabling the default water-enabled setting on the control panel. This feature is useful for cutting wood or materials that do not require water.
We suggest you to always use water on marble, granite, ceramic and engineered stone.
- Can you provide a higher-powered spindle?
Yes. We can install a spindle with power up to 3.2 kW. The standard CNC Next comes with a spindle power of 2.2 kW, suitable for marble and natural stonework such as writings and bas-relief roughing.
For heavy working on granite, we suggest a more powerful spindle. 3.2 kW, for example.
- And what about rpm? Can I have a spindle with a higher rpm?
Certainly. The standard CNC Stone Router Next spindle has a maximum speed of 14,000 rpm. If you want to work wood or other soft materials, we can install any spindle you would like even up to 40,000 rpm.
The added cost depends on the spindle you wish to install.
- Can I have brushless motors?
Yes. Upon request, we can install brushless motors for an added cost of € 2,000.

- Do you ship to the United States?
Yes, of course, we ship our machines all over the world.
Shipping cost to the US is approximately € 1500.
Shipping cost to Canada is approximately € 1500; and € 1200 to the United Kingdom.
Shipping costs depend upon many factors, such as the period of the year and the exchange rate.
- My business is not in Italy. How can I get training?
We provide online training via Skype or other video-conference software. The sales price includes 24 hours (6 days, 4 hours per day) of remote training. After that, we are always available for any questions or doubts regarding how to operate the machine.
Our training focuses more on the CAD/CAM software than on operating on the machine. (The machine does all the work!). Simply import the file in Next, and start operation from the control panel. It’s is very easy and user-friendly. Try, and you’ll see it.
- What is the normal delivery time if I place an order today?
We usually have 1 Standard version of the CNC Stone Router ready for shipment. If you require a special machine with customized features, or if, by chance, the machine you want is not available, the manufacturing process will take approximately 12 weeks.
