Series I


Series I (3-Axis): Highly Rigid, Compact Footprint for 3x5’ Tables & Smaller

  • Compact footprint ideal for space constraints, small shops
  • Table sizes range from 2x4’ to 3x5’
  • Stress-relieved steel fixed gantry, precision-ballscrew driven table like all Accu-Routers
  • Spindle: manual collet, push-button quick change, or automatic (rack or carousel)
  • Holddown: vacuum (no rollers)

Technical Specifications

Series I 3-Axis Highly Rigid, Compact Footprint for 3x5’ Tables & Smaller
Design Background
  • Successor to old Powermatic Series I C-frame router with belt-drive spindle
  • Initial ’Series I-M’ built with cast iron bas & gantry (vs steel) for maximum rigidity & vibration dampening, not always cost-justifiable
  • Current production model uses steel weldments like larger Accu-Routers
  • Smaller table & footprint ideal for smaller shops
