Higher Precision! The PowerCarver 400xs is a step up in quality and precision from the PowerCarver 400K. The SCM engineers know there are artist's doing insanely detailed work. These artists work under larger magnifying glasses or under microscopes. To obtain this level of detail for these artists, one requires a truly amazing tool! The engineers at SCM were up to the challenge and created the PowerCarver 400xs with unbelievable tight tolerances for the turbine. The PowerCarver 400xs turbines are machined to such tight tolerances that the assembly requires a microscope to build the final turbine assembly! The results are worth it because nothing else can match it short of ion beam milling at the atomic level. By machining the PowerCarver 400xs housing down a little more and adding an ergonomic fluted grip, even better control via tactile and sensory feedback was obtained. This is especially important when using inverted cone burs and serrated carbide cutters. The dual turbine impellers and bearing assembly was specifically designed and manufactured under a microscope to work in this tool to obtain the highest degree of precision engraving for the artist. By having a larger impeller, more air is converted into torque. This means you have more cutting power at a sustainable higher RPM than other tools. The PowerCarver 400xs uses Phenolic in the bearing retainers and the entire bearing assembly is encased in a metal housing. Only the impellers and bur port are exposed. This not only prevents contamination, but replacing the turbine/bearing assembly is a simple 15 second process requiring NO TOOLS! It is important to note that the bearing assembly is encased in its own housing, the compressed air powering the turbine does not need to pass over the bearings. This extends bearing life by keeping contamination out.

Generations Ahead of It's Time

The 400xs is the product of years of intensive research and development, the revolutionary PowerCarver 400xs engraver is the most advanced handpiece on the market today!

Utilizing the contemporary science of ergonomics to fit your hand with maximum ease and a vibration-free operation, the PowerCarver 400xs is specifically designed for hours of the most comfortable operation possible!

The PowerCarver 400xs engraver is manufactured by SCM Systems, Inc using the highest quality materials available under the most exacting standards of quality control, unsurpassed by any other engraving system.

Research Pays Off

Although you only apply a small amount of pressure when engraving, it’s that pressure which eventually wears out on any handpiece. The PowerCarver 400xs engraver, with its unique dual-bearing design, provides much greater internal support for engraving pressure. That means you get longer life with trouble-free service.

Feel The Control

The PowerCarver 400xs delivers maximum control and cutting ability whether you’re making the final cut on a custom car window or completing a detailed egg shell, the PowerCarver 400xs high-speed 400,000 rpm handpiece gives you a smooth and controlled cut, through the entire operating range.

Lube For Life Bearing

With the PowerCarver 400xs Lube For Life Bearing construction, there is no longer a need for the old style, messy, in-line mist fog oiler. SCM is the founder of this type of bearing construction.

Features & Benefits

The most technologically advanced handpiece on the market today, the revolutionary PowerCarver 400xs operates at an amazing 400,000 revolutions per minute - yet, it's light and easy to handle! Featuring an ultra-high-speed turbine and dual support bearings, it provides high-torque steady vibration-free action unmatched by any competitive handpiece. And it's quality-backed by the best warranty in the business. It sets up in minutes, too: simply connect a few hoses, plug in the compressor, insert the preferred bit and you're in business.

  • Variable Speed Air Valve controls the speed of your tool. Simply turn the knob to your desired speed from shut off to full speed and everything in between. Can be used with diaphragm compressor or one with a tank.

  • 4" Magnetic Polished Stainless Steel Bur Tray. Stop losing burs! Put all of your burs into the magnetic bur tray and pick and choose the ones you need for your project.

  • Cleaning Stone. Keeps diamond and stone cutters clean to maximize life. At normal hand piece cutting speed, cut into the cleaning stone for approximately two seconds. This removes debris from the diamond and stone burs and restores the cutting edges of diamond particles.

  • 10 feet of extra air compressor hose. Extra hose length gives you the freedom to move around or locate your compressor into a different room.

 Forgot to Add also included is a ultimate burr set for wood valued at £90

The 5 bur sampler contains DR12M Diamond Round (2), DR22M Diamond Round (17), FG4 Carbide Round (9), FG332L Carbide Pear (15), FG699 Carbide Taper (16). The number in parentheses is the SCM part number for reference.

How Fast is Fast Enough?

The PowerCarver 400xs operates at an air pressure of 45 PSI (pounds per square inch). At this pressure the PowerCarver 400xs will rotate at an amazing 400,000 RPM or nearly 7,000 revolutions in one second! Why not go faster? Isn't faster better? Not necessarily, for two reasons. First, the impellers on the turbine are designed to capture a massive amount of air with little blow-by. This means nearly all of the air is converted into torque. Think of torque as "turning power". Torque is the power delivered to the bur, the actual cutter. (See the photos below to compare the PowerCarver 400xs turbine to the Powercrafter and Turbocarver.) The second and the most important reason is the bur's maximum RPM rating. Most burs are only designed for rotational speeds of around 400,000 RPM. It is this reason you should never exceed the pressure of 45 PSI. Be safe, stay at 400,000 RPM.
