Axiom Pro V5 Series

Axiom Pro V5 Series

Product Review (submitted on February 7, 2021):
I want to start this off by saying thank you to the team at Axiom! I am a High School Robotics coach for all 3 major High School Robotics platforms: VEX, FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC), and FIRST Robotics Challenge (FRC). We needed a solid CNC Router that could handle high volume and still have a high level of precision.

So, when shopping around I found that there are 3 suppliers that most FRC go with: Omio, Inventables, and Velox. With all three I could foresee some issues, the Omio would have gantry flex, and the other two would more than likely have spindle lifespan issues. So, I kept looking and found Axiom, I called and spoke with Steve who suggested that I move from the basic model to the pro model due to the intermittent high volume that the teams would have during build seasons. With a little extra grant money, I was able to upgrade and I am glad that I did. The primary reason why is the liquid cooled spindle that will ensure a long life even under the boom-bust type of production that a robotics team has during build season. We ended up getting the AR6 Pro V5 due to the extended 36” bed, which by flipping long parts gives us a total of 6 feet (more than we normally need).

I also want to mention the customer service that I have received, at every interaction they have been honest and fair. I haven’t had any problems reaching out for help and the operation of the machine has been flawless. I do wish that there was a little more information readily available online regarding operation, but after a conversation with my students we have decided to make some instructional videos soon.
