We make custom CNC frames for makers, hobbyists and professionals. A CNC frame can be equipped with a spindle, Co2 laser, diode-pumped solid-state laser, fiber laser, diode laser, plasma cutter, etc.
CNC frame 100×60 cm (40×24”) working size with Z axis for 15 watt dual laser system
Our CNC frame is made of an aluminum profile 20×40 mm, has a Y-axis drive via XL-5.08mm 10mm belt. For high precision we use a profile guide 15 mm with pulley z – 20 teeth bore 6.35 mm.
High precision & a high speed with no vibrations are keys mechanical features of this frame.
Electronic components and wiring
We pay much attention to electronics components. All components are being securely tested before installing them.
In this frame, we used a CNC xPRO V4 Controller (by Spark Concepts) and Leadshine stepper motor drivers.
|2x stepper motor drivers|
|3x NEMA stepper motor enginers|
|CNC xPro ver. 4|
However, a Ruida controller (RDC6442G) can be used upon request.
Keep in mind that low-cost electronics that are used on such frames ar Ortur, Genmitsu (Sain Smart), Eleksmaker, CNCC Laseraxe, etc can not be used on a professional machine.
Endurance lasers make and deliver custom CNC frames of all sizes for different industrial applications: milling, cutting, engraving, marking. Multi-level testing system. Ultra-high reliability.

Our CNC frame can be equipped with a:
- Diode laser (1-20 watt),
- DPSS laser (1-10 watt),
- Spindle (up to 2.2kW),
- Fiber laser (30-200 watt),
- Co2 laser (40-500 watt),
There is an opportunity that it will be a combo “2 in 1” or “3 in 1” like DPSS+Spinder+Diode.
We can add a vacuum cleaner, a fume extractor, an enclosure, and a working table upon request.
We also can build a CNC frame that will operate in a horizontal and vertical position.
Basic mechanical components for a CNC frame:
We always use aluminum profiles for the mainframe.
We use guides with a deviation of not more than 5 microns (0.005 mm)
To move the carriage we are using a helical rack, or using a ball screw pair, or using belts.
- Gearboxes (are used to reduce the load on a stepper motor.)
- Worm gearboxes
- Structural shapes (are used to connect the frame)
- Aluminum shapes: 40 x 40 – 60 x 120 mm (basic construction material for a frame)
- Steel guides (are used to secure accurate movement)
- Metal belts (are used for the movements)
- Shapes connectors (are used to connect all elements)
- Aluminum sheets (are used for a custom development)
- Runner slides
- Cylindrical rails (are used for the movement, more accurate comparing to belts)
- Runner blocks
- Helical rack modules (are used for the movement.)
- Screw (helical) gear modules (are used for the movement.)
- Ball screws (are used for main connections)
Basic electronics components for a CNC frame:
- Stepper motors with encoders (are used as a main component for the movement)
- Drivers of a servo-stepper motor (SSM) (are used to control and operate the motor)
- Signal cables (are used to wire control)
- Power supply cables (are used to feed components with power)
- Connectors (are used to make connection easy and nice)
- Controller with/without a display
- Flexible plastic cable ducts (are used to carry cables)
- Mount for a cable ducts
