The Power Route Plus XL takes you to the next level of CNC capability with its heavy-duty frame, precision ball screw drive system, big linear bearings, high torque motors, and precision milled heavy duty bearing plates. Building on the success of its popular predecessor, the Power Route Plus XL incorporates years of customer feedback and engineering tweaks that make it the most robust system possible for the price. Key improvements include much larger bearings, more Z stroke and gantry clearance, improved ball screw bearing supports, better safety shielding, and an enhanced electronics control box,
If you need to mill harder materials such as aluminum, brass, copper, carbon fiber, or even occasionally some steel in a large format then the Power Route Plus XL is THE choice that stands out from the competition and even any other machine in our lineup (such as the Mega V XXL).
The Power Route Plus XL is not a desktop CNC. It comes with legs and braces to make it rigid, standalone CNC. This is the market standard for work area and capability at the price point.
It does not come with design software, but Autodesk offers all hobbyists a free license (not a trial) for design software called Fusion 360. You might also consider one of the Easel or Vectric CAD/CAM programs that we offer at https://millrightcnc.com/product-category/software/
The control box comes with the electronics pre-wired for you and sits on a shelf below the machine’s work table.
