The Q-Series sets new standards in the computer-aided individual and serial production. The powerful CNC system unites efficiency, precision and quality with modern industrial design and has been specifically constructed for industrial application. With production speeds of up to 10 m/min, a large variety of materials such as woods, plastics, aluminum, brass, carbon, and composites can be efficiently and precisely processed.

Intelligent Mix of Materials
Innovative solutions are combined with smart technology. This can be seen, for example, in the intelligent mix of heavy-duty aluminum extrusions and steel components on constructional highly-stressed areas. While the machine frame of the Q.204 is reinforced with six aluminum crossbars for an optimal distribution of forces, the gantry uprights are made of a 5-layered, powder-coated steel construction. Additionally, the linear guide system relies on the All-Steel Motion System® with Ø 20 mm hardened steel shafts and, thus, guarantees a high load capacity.

Solid Drive Unit
The Q.204 contains a solid drive unit, consisting of an actively-cooled stepper motor, which moves the ball screw drives including revolving nuts. This ensures maximum agility and precision. Additional useful features are the Z-axis that is equipped with six T-slots for the variable attachment of different tools, the electronic expansion box for the easy connection of signal-dependent components, the machine table that comes standard with aluminum T-slots offering the most flexibility when fixing your workpieces and accessories as well as the LED machine illumination for the optimal lighting of the working space. Furthermore, the Q-Series can be individually extended with a multitude of optional accessories.

OneTech Quality Philosophy
All systems of the Q-Series are manufactured according to our unique OneTech quality philosophy. This means that one machine is completely handcrafted and checked by one technician. Only after successful testing of all functionalities will a machine of the Q-Series receive the personal OneTech quality seal and will leave our site with the respective test protocol and workpiece.

Note: The MDF T-Slot Table is not suited for the use with liquids because it can damage the wood.

Precision

 

 

The Q-Series offers optimal precision and extreme reliability in the manufacturing and processing of high quality workpieces. For this purpose, the machine frame has been reinforced with up to ten crossbars along with the addition of steel components used on constructional, highly-stressed areas. Additionally, the solid drive units provide a high level of operating efficiency which is reflected in repeatability and backlash of +/- 0,015 mm.

Reinforced Machine Frame

Up to ten crossbars out of aluminum extrusions serve to reinforce the machine frame consistently in a distance of 280 mm along the Y-axis. This stabilizes the frame and creates an ideal supporting surface for the machine table.

Steel Components 

In the development of the Q-Series we at STEPCRAFT relied on using steel components on constructional highly-stressed areas in order to ensure high force distribution on all axes. Thus, the gantry uprights, for example, consist of a 5-layered, powder-coated steel construction.

Solid Drive Unit

The drive unit on the Y-axis consists of up to two actively-cooled stepper motors on both sides, which move the ball screw drives including revolving nuts. This ensures maximum agility, reliability and precision. 

 

Design & Function

 

 

As a modern CNC machine, the Q-Series excels at combining design and function. This can be seen in the intelligent mix of heavy-duty STEPCRAFT aluminum extrusions and steel components, but also in the easy maintenance access of the linear guides and the Z-axis. This way, the Q-Series optimally combines innovative solutions with modern industrial design.

 

 

Concealed Cable Routing

 

The STEPCRAFT Q-Series contains exceptionally reliable and durable IGUS quality lines with a suitability for 10 million bending cycles. These are safely and concealed routed through the CNC machine via energy chains.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Intelligent Mix of Materials

One of the great advantages of the Q-Series lies in the smart combination of heavy-duty STEPCRAFT aluminum extrusions and steel components, thus, ensuring rigidity and lowest vibration through a high weight. 

 

 

 

Junction Box

All control and signal lines of the fully wired Q-Series converge in the on-board junction box on the X-axis. Whether tools, electronics or accessories, in the juction box additional signal-dependent components can be connected comfortably with the machine.

 

 

 

Universal Z-Tool Holder

In order to support the usage of a multitude of tools, the Z-axis has been equipped with six T-slots. This way, it is also possible to variably adjust the height of the tool holder.

 

 

QUALITY

 

 

 

 

 

Powerful CNC systems need to be solidly built with high quality components. With the All-Steel Motion System®, the solid drive units, the standardly included machine table out of white coated MDF boards with aluminum T-slots and the assembly according to the OneTech quality philosophy, the Q-Series is perfectly suited for industrial applications..

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

EFFICIENCY

 

 

The innovative technology and first class components of the Q-Series allow for the time- and cost-efficient manufacturing and machining of workpieces while reliably producing high-precision milling results with a multitude of different materials.
