A bold body

 

The Evoke itself is carved from aircraft grade aluminium on our own larger CNC machines, making it both sturdy and exact. We then anodize Evoke mills to keep them looking like new and protected from the elements for years to come.

The Best in Spindles

Without the best cutting tool for the job, NS CNC mills would never be able to boast the level of detail and versatility they do. NSK Nakanishi is a global leader in spindles and the only real choice for jewelers. Standard on every machine, the 30,000 RPM spindle can carve out most of our clients’ beautiful creations. For those who have something a bit more heavy duty in mind, upgrade to the 50-60,000 RPM spindle for more power.  Have a unique project or special requirements? Talk to us about customizing spindles for any job. The spindle collet set has a standard diameter of 1/8″ (3.175 mm). If the user wants, we can insert a collet of any size from 1.0 mm to 6.5 mm in increments of 0.1 mm.

Guidance Systems

Our Evoke mill has stood the test of time because we use the best technology to build it. THK’s linear motion system is no exception. We created a highly precise mill and lathe with guides and bearings that won’t need maintenance for years using their system.

Keeping it Cool

 

One of the many things that make NS CNC’s models and waxes unique is the surface quality. We’ve always maintained that smooth surface quality is essential for fine jewelry, so our mills are built to achieve just that. An automated coolant system can be added to any NS CNC mill to preserve the finest surface and of course to prevent overheating. Additionally, the system helps to contain debris, contributing to a clean and productive workshop. Adjust the system’s frequency and duration of coolant application to match individual project requirements with ease as it automatically and continually filters and circulates the coolant. Our own “NS-Cool” is formulated to work as a highly effective coolant, and it keeps the mill components from corroding after use.

Configuring Evoke

 

When we sell Evoke, we work with our clients to find the configuration that best suits their needs. This way, we can make sure that the machines we sell provide the best value for our clients.

All 4 Axes

 

Evoke is normally sold as a 4-axis mill. The rotary axis opens the door to an incredible array of possibilities: rings, sculptures, cameos, busts, pendants and more become easily achievable on this machine.
As with all of our mills, Evoke’s accessories are made with the highest quality in mind. The rotary table is machined from solid bar stock steel to ensure performance and accuracy for years on end.

Heavy Duty Rotary Table

 

The addition of the rotary axis is a very popular choice. This option contains a durable 4″ rotary table, giving 360° of access to your work-piece. Machined from solid bar stock steel, the table is manufactured to exacting specifications to provide the best possible operation.

The 3-axis Base

 

Sometimes, all a jeweler needs is a highly precise cut out of a flat piece. Evoke is happy to oblige, offering a 3-axis configuration used to create charms, buckles, medallions, and more. Use this powerful machine to cut through tough materials; carve into antler, bone, graphite, and even materials as hard as brass. Power meets precision for etching names and logos into nearly any material with remarkable detail.

Lathe

 

Replace the spindle of an Evoke with the lathe attachment, and it becomes a highly precise manufacturing tool. Quickly turn out wedding band blanks, chess pieces, and anything else where volume and uniformity are crucial.

Engrave

 

When we built Evoke, we kept in mind that it would be used on some challenging projects. The engraving tool is another one of the configurations that makes good use of Evoke’s robust body to perfectly and easily cut into aluminium, brass, and acrylic, leaving behind beautiful images and typefaces. This sold separately add on is a must have for any jeweler looking to show off their best engraving designs.

Special Projects

 

We’ve designed Evoke to handle nearly anything the jewelry industry can throw at it, which means we know how to set it up to handle a challenging new project or material. Call us to find out how we can equip Evoke to deliver the best results on that next big job.

Making it Work

 

Using an NS CNC mill is easy. We’ve made sure that the controls are ubiquitous and intuitive, running on a laptop and connecting via a USB cable. The laptop can run the machine while also being used for the internet, running a digital microscope, calibration, or support. We send the computer with an adjustable folding stand and waterproof accessories, helping make the system more ergonomically and workshop friendly.
