Complete CNC Systems

We've put together several basic ShopBot packages, both PRSalpha and PRSstandard, to illustrate recommended components for a complete CNC system. The PRSalpha and standard systems differ primarily in terms of how effectively they will meet high production demands. More specific recommendations for specialized systems can be found under various headings of the Applications section of our web site.

You can specify your system with either a router or spindle. Spindles will be preferred in most production situations, but a router will work adequately if cost is a consideration. Each PRS includes a table and several accessories (Z-zero Plate and XY Proximity Switches), which are useful for most applications. You provide your own surface for the table. 

ShopBot PRSalpha CNC Systems

  • The PRSalpha 96 x 60 is an affordable, high quality CNC router perfect for cutting full size sheets of plywood, as well as foam, plastics, and other large materials.
  • With cutting speed up to 600 inches/minute, plus its accuracy and repeatability, the ShopBot PRSalpha can quickly pay for itself due to time and labor savings.
  • We also custom build tools in sizes such as 96” x 48”, 120” x 60”, and 144” x 60" and others: Learn about this tool
