Over the past 2 years, we have accumulated a lot of feedback from CNC users. The newbies think it is very complicated to set the right parameters such as engraving speed, depth per pass, plunge rate, and so on. The seasoned machinists believe desktop CNCs, such as the 4040-XE, are still not strong enough to cut aluminum and brass easily and precisely. So FoxAlien keeps on thinking to find a solution to satisfy both the newbies and the veterans. What if we can bring a machine that has more room for the new user to make errors, even if the settings are not perfect, they can still carve with nice results. What if this machine can meet the experienced user's requirements to engrave and cut soft metal easily. Now, we are introducing the best CNC Router Machine in FoxAlien’s family. The CNC Machine Vasto upgrades everything: the linear bearings, the extrusions, the ball screws, the motors and the controller box (independent drivers for each axis). This machine comes with the 400W spindle stock. In order to release the full potential of this Monster, we strongly recommend upgrading to the DeWalt DWP611 or the Makita Router. (DeWalt and Makita router are not included)

Delivery and assembly - This arrives in three large boxes and one of them is pretty heavy but overall everything is packaged extremely well. Assembly is fairly easy although you may benefit from asking someone to help you drop the X axis in place as that is the heaviest singular part. You can be up and running in under an hour and it is essentially plug and play once built.
Testing and review - I have had this machine for several months now and put it through various tests. I deliberately stuck with the 400w spindle to begin with as I wanted to see what it could do straight out of the box. I've machine wood at 1000mm/min with a depth of 6.5mm which is really impressive. I've also also machined various things out of aluminium. You can still go fast in aluminium but have to keep the depths reasonable to avoid deflection. The deflection is mainly in the spindle shaft and bit so upgrading to a router or larger spindle would eliminate most if not all of this. There is a little deflection in the bed itself, but this is easily overcome by placing a block of wood underneath.
Conclusion - It is a well thought-out machine. You can still get a lot done with this machine straight out of the box but once you upgrade the spindle, it will fly through nearly anything. Suitable for both hobbyists and professionals
I bought the FoxAlien Vasto when it was announced. I wanted to start a business and was researching CNC routers that would my needs. I have a hobby-ist CNC router but I knew I wanted something that I could rely on if I was going to start a business. I found the Vasto and it checked all the boxes.
It is a real work horse! Is is based on linear rails with leadscrews. It comes in modules that are easy to assemble. The entire machine is about 45kg (100 lbs) and is very stable. The gantry is one module that is about 20kg and adds to the stability.
I have used it on MDF, plywood, oak timber and aluminium. I cuts aluminium and oak as it was butter. It comes with 400w spindle that is very good but it has also fittings for a Makita and DeWalt routers. I have an 800w Makita that does any job a breeze!
I really like this machine and it will be used daily in my business.
I've had the Vasto for a couple weeks now and I've been very impressed with it! I wasn't really sure what I got myself into, I just bought it on a whim. Once I started opening boxes and seeing the 10mm thick aluminum arms for the gantry, I was like Oh crap this is bigger than I expected haha. I've managed to do 1500mm/min with a 1/8" cutter at 15mm depth of cut, and 1500mm/min with a 1/4" cutter at 22mm depth of cut. This was with a Dewalt router, on HDPE plastic. The Vasto was rigid enough that it performed these cuts with no struggles! I'm very impressed! Linear rails and leadscrews on every axis, I have no idea how many pounds they'll push before skipping steps, but I've yet to find that limit! No part of this router felt like they cheaped out. It feels like they listened to customers and did their homework, to make sure this unit came with quality parts and construction. Hardly took me over an hour to assemble too! Most of it comes pre-assembled. Just a handful of screws to connect stuff. The linear rails..ballscrews..etc were all assembled out of the box. Saves a ton of time! I'd definitely recommend this to a friend, shipping time was pretty fast to the US as well!
All I have to say is WOW! I had huge expectations when purchasing this machine and it’s way beyond what I was expecting.
First the machine is a beast it weighs around 110 pounds and is way over built. None of the axis have any flex. It was delivered in 3 boxes that were packed great. Also was really easy to assemble.
I’m cutting carbon fiber with it and I’m able to cut 2 3 and 4mm Carbon with one cut. And I’m confident you could do 5 and 6mm the same. No more worrying about belts skipping and damaging parts.
I could go on forever about how awesome this machine is.
I would recommend it to anyone that wants a pro / industrial quality machine. And I wouldn’t hesitate to buy another one.
Thanks everyone at Fox Alien for bringing this great machine to the market.
