-The Classic Zoltar CNC-Machine for the future.

It started all with this the XL version of the classic Zoltar getting 850 mm working length out of it.

Here showing Bernd Reich his XL-machine who does build beautiful gliders.

Now by the end of 2006 I still feel that this is a very decent setup and inspired by the bracket machine
and the past experiments with dual drive screws on a 1200mm XL setup (in use for a long time now) exploring maximums table length

Back in 2007 I gave it a try to enhance and update the classic design...
but found that the Igus concept would be more feaseble.
The additional IGUS parts -would raise of costs would make it less interresting to market it

After reviewing the Igus build of Peter Pankras, I was amazed by the sturdiness of the frame/setup.

Would it be possible to beat the IGUS linear rails with a modified 2001 classic rail system?

The awnser is Yes it is possible, shown here in the 2011-CL design !
