Features

CNC SUPRA Vertical Knee Mill Features

  • The SUPRA Vertical Mill is designed to work with your Windows 10 64 bit operating systems through your standard USB port.
  • Powerful X, Y, and Z-axis micro-stepper motors NEMA size 34 with 1760 oz-in of torque on the X/Y and 1200 oz-in of torque on the Z. Stronger torque coupled with micro-stepping motion keeps the CNC Supra from losing steps and performs as accurate as a servo system.
  • The minimum possible motion for the SUPRA Vertical Knee Mill is 0.0002” with a minimum speed of 0.05” per minute. The maximum speed is 100” per minute on your Rapid Settings with ramp down effect to keep the machine from jerking.
  • X & Y Zero Backlash Ball Screws with pre-loaded ball nuts to eliminate play on the table travel, and give precision machining
  • X & Y Direct Drives--no belts to adjust. This results in smoother operations and ensures accuracy unlike bipolar, pulley and belt, drive methods which can cause the belt to buckle causing inaccurate results. This unique design of direct drive keeps you without having the need to change the belt or adjust as it wears down.
  • Quill Driven which is better than a knee driven Z axis, this maintains rigidity of the knee while the part is being machined on three axis simultaneous movement.
  • Z Axis Zero Backlash Ball Screw with pre-loaded ball nut to eliminate play on the up and down travel of the Quill.
  • Home Reference Sensors on the X, Y, Z which saves your home/zero position as the first line of your program. This feature allows you to quickly return to the home position on any program without having to manually zero your three axes again.
  • Full 3 Axis or optional 4 Axis coordinated motion control. True Interpolation.
  • Limit Switches on all extreme ends of X, Y, Z travel allowing you to confidently test your program without having to worry about an axis crashing at its end of travel.
  • Tool Height Compensation with Automatic Quill Retraction for easy tool change
  • Tool Cutter Radius Offset Compensation
  • Run your tool path from any line on your program
  • Easy to Use Jogging Features, Feed Control, and Feed Over Ride on the fly
  • Use Teach Mode Jog-Input Command to automatically write each line of your tool path as you manually jog each axis by pc mouse, keyboard, or the optional hand held remote control joystick to save as a program for repeat use.
  • Software Power Feed capabilities on X, Y, Z, and W with one click of the PC mouse for exact relative driving distance.
  • Pre-engineered for you when it comes to pitch and resolution. No tuning or calibration needed at setup. No additional parameters set-up required. Display resolution is 0.0001 micro-stepping travel. Just start using your machine.

10 reviews for CNC SUPRA Vertical Knee Milling Machine

  1. Steve

    Had my Supra for 4 years, amazing machine and great customer service.

  2. James Dilbeck

    We’ve had our Supra for about 8 years and it was down for the first time a couple of days ago. Customer service walked us through the steps to determine the component that needed to be replaced and shipped the part overnight to us. We were back in production in no time. The machine has been versatile, easy to understand and very reliable. The service couldn’t have been better.

  3. Greg

    I have had one since 2009. Good solid mill and when I have problems generally a phone call steps me through to get up a going in short order. I do recommend getting a AC line filter to get the voltage reliably in the spec of the system and to have a battery back-up in case power goes down. Definitely get these as suggested in the user manual. I have made engineering parts and models for wind tunnel testing and UAVs. Even had some parts in a large NASA wind tunnel test that I made on the machine.

  4. Harold Wingo

    I purchased the 10 X 54 SUPRA Mill in Aug. 2013. I’ve had no formal training in Machine Shop work much less CNC operations to include writing CODE. Needless to say, I began from “scratch”. My machine was shipped to me (Alaska) and it arrived well crated and in perfect condition. For those unfamiliar with getting large items shipped to Alaska, our large items come to us by an ocean-going barge so I was well pleased that ocean spray had NEVER penetrated the shipping container. After opening the crate and moving the machine into my shop, I began reading the manual. I was impressed!! The manual was concise and orderly written. Everything was explained clearly and perfectly; nothing was left to chance. I have previously purchased new machines and the manuals were poorly written IN BROKEN, and often times poor English at best. This WAS NOT the case with Ormar’s manual. This manual led to easy machine Setup and Operation. When I began using the mill, I “pestered” Omar to death with questions. Omar “hung in there” with me and I was (and still am) impressed with customer service. A rare commodity in these times. My phone calls were multiple times each day, for more than several months, and there was NEVER a time that Omar failed to take my call. After a 5 (five) year period I STILL call Omar and he helps me with writing CODE and explaining what certain lines of CODE mean. Folks, this is SERVICE!!! Any other vendor would have dropped me as soon as they got my money BUT Omar never gave up on me. Although I use the SUPRA for various things, I purchased this machine to mainly fabricate rifle parts. My machine has performed flawlessly over 5 years and I’ve grown to trust this machine. I have found it to be VERY accurate. My dealings with CNC MASTERS have been stellar! I have no hesitation nor mental reservation recommending CNC MASTERS, Omar, and the SUPRA product line whatsoever. I took “the plunge” and have never regretted my purchase. CNC MASTERS are good people to deal with, the SUPRA is a spectacular product, and I recommend CNC MASTERS highly.

  5. Lewis Plastics

    We recently added another Supra to our secondary production line and up-sized to the larger 10X54; it is definitely the bigger brother to the 9X49, these units perform without any trouble running 2-shifts 5-days a week. Support contact is quick to respond with the solution to any concern we have. We are a custom injection molder that use these machines for secondary machining operations (drilling, tapping, counter-bores and de-gating, ect…) for our plastic parts. They are quick, accurate and built as well as a high-end NC mill. It is simple to program using the supplied software or using a cam software; we use Master-Cam; you will need to remove some code that a large NC Machining center would require (such as auto tool changers, coolant….).
    We have had tool makers see these machines running and cant believe how well they perform for the cost. We definitely recommend them and will continue using them.

  6. Aaron

    I purchased a CNC Masters Supra Mill about 10 years ago. Customer service is excellent, and the mill has performed great. It has saved me a LOT of money and time by not having to outsource machined parts.

  7. Ron Burgess

    I purchased the 10 X 54 SUPRA 4 axis Mill in August of 2018. I am an old “Mill Hand” with experience on everything from Bridgeport Js to advanced centers. I made the decision to upgrade from my Supermax YC 1-1/2 home shop manual machine to a CNC. After months of surfing reviews and talking to Supra owners and Omar at CNC Masters, and with much trepidation, I opted for the big CNC Masters Supra.
    My greatest fear was the low price affecting quality and performance. After 8 months all “trepidation” and fear have totally vanished! THIS IS A KEEPER………
    Biggest Question: How does CNC Masters get so much quality and performance in a machine at a third the price or less of a comparable “name” brand?
    My machine weighs almost 4000 lbs and is extremely rigid. I routinely make 1-1/4 dia 0.600 deep cuts on semi-hard 4340 and finish within 0.001.
    I generally machine aluminum at 5000+ rpm and and crazy feed-rates. The built-in coolant tank is huge and the coolant system is almost always used.
    Although I have a dxf/dwg converter, I program direct from my drawing to the CNC Masters MasterMX proprietary controller software via g-code which provides a tool-path and code analysis before hitting “run”.
    CNC Masters customer service is the kind you just don’t find anymore in today’s world; personal and timely beyond belief. Omar is always patient, knowledgeable, and dependable.
    I experienced a spindle stop problem. A call to Omar and the problem was diagnosed and solved. I had a new stop switch within 36 hours of the problem, free.
    I had a question regarding one their many proprietary g-code canned cycles. I emailed my program to Omar and my program with the canned cycle g-code edited in was returned within 2 hours. Ran the program perfectly first try.
    This is a 5-STAR company all the way. I have not had a dissatisfied feeling or unresolved issue since the purchase of my machine. Not once.
    The quality of their machine and the selling price is an unbeatable combination. PERIOD……………

  8. Bill Peakes

    I have been running my CNC-Supra many years now machining ceramics. Machine is still very accurate. I have been machining for 40 years and the CNC-Supra is the best machine I have ever owned. A lot of machine for the money. Their tech support is the best I’ve ever experienced.
    My next machine will be a CNC-Supra from CNC Masters.

  9. paul barrette

    We are a specialised custom shop in Quebec,

    After 5 years of good service, we ran into some issues with our supra mill, Omar guided me through the the operation of getting it back running, he is an outstanding communicator, the process was quick and painless.

    Thank you for having such great customer service

    Paul Barrette

  10. Gilbert Fregoso

    Hi All,
    I use two the CNC Maters machines the Supra Vertical Knee Milling Machine and the 1440 CNC Lathe. The machines work great, the tech support couldn’t be better.
