The difference between V3 and V2:
V3 is an upgraded version based on V2. In order to process copper and aluminum with higher performance, the force parts of the frame are replaced with 45 steel. The bearing scheme of the rotating shaft is also replaced with a cross roller bearing that can be loaded with higher rotation and higher precision. The machine body also reserves a lot of table alignment holes, which is convenient to adjust the precision of the machine to avoid assembly errors. The Y-axis guide screw is also replaced with the larger lead screw guide due to the load. The spindle is also replaced by an unpowered 400W to an 800W electric spindle. In comparison, the electric spindle has less noise and heat generation, and the power and speed are larger. Therefore, the V3 version of the aluminum processing parameters should be able to recommend a 6mm milling cutter under the knife 0.2~0.3F1500, the current V2 recommended parameter is a 3mm milling cutter under the knife 0.2F1000. In contrast, copper and aluminum can be processed more efficiently because of the overall strength and performance of the machine. The other five-axis stroke is also raised from the 120-diameter*90 height of the V2 to the 150-mm diameter and 125-mm high of the V3. The rotating shaft is also water-repellent. The waterproof rotary oil seal can be used to process the cutting fluid, which is more suitable for processing metal or jade.
Metal enclosure V3-Enclosure
V3 sheet metal shell, color black, 2.5mm thick aluminum plate, 750*500*600mm
The latest version V4 as the following photo and video is going to be available on sale in late June 2020, Presale 10 units.
The rotary is changed from worm gear to harmonic reducer and Z axis from single linear rail to dual linear rails.
BLDC Servo Motor and C5 Ball Screws, HIWIN Linear Rails are the standard offer.
The V4 Enclosure is Not a full cover for the 5-axis CNC mill but is for the working area. You can find below
The metal enclosure is Not very suitable to ship separately because the Volume Weight is over 50Kgs, the shipping cost is high.
You could order the enclosure with the Desket-V4 5-axis CNC milling machine, thanks
Is this 5-axis CNC mill suitable for Aluminum machining?

Q1. Are servo motors standard, or is that an option?
A1. Servo motors of the V4 are standard offer and ground ball screw, harmonic drive r5-axis.
Q2. Does only the "C" rotary axis use a harmonic drive, does the "A" axis also use a harmonic drive?
A2. A and C rotary axis are both harmonic drives.
Q3. Does the "Y" axis require a counter-weight? (I noticed a cable in one of the photos on the webpage).
A3. No need for a counterweight.
Q4. Are all the motors and electronics well sealed against cutting/cooling fluid (water soluble)?
A4. With enclosure, yes it's well sealed.
Q5. Is the enclosure sealed against cutting/cooling fluid and is there a reservoir (sump) at the bottom of the enclosure that is suitable for coolant recirculation?
A5. Yes, there is a reservoir at the bottom for the coolant recirculation.
Q6. Is the spindle water cooled? If so, is the pump and cooling system reliable?
A6. Yes, the spindle is water-cooled with cold exhaust and cooling fan, pump and cooling system provided is reliable.
Q7. Is there any disadvantage (other than the additional cost) to get the high-speed spindle?
A7. Speed mainly depends on the needs of processing materials. With high speed, the finish and cutting load of each edge will be smaller, but the tool will wear out faster.
Q8. Is there any kind of semi-automated tool setting mechanism? i.e., is there a touch-off sensor?
A8. There is an automatic electronic tool setting.
Q9. Do you provide a post-processor for Fusion 360 that works well?
A9. Yes, Fusion 360 post-processor is provided.
Q10. Do you provide any post-sales support for setup, configuration, trouble-shooting?
A10. Yes. If you have WeChat, we have a group of more than 10 already from worldwide and our engineer in to take your questions.
