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 PRS alpha 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 [see Tables/Bases]
