Applications:  Manufacturing

Whether you're just starting production or need to scale up to meet new demand, ShopBot tools deliver the power and precision you need. For a fraction of the investment in big-iron CNC tools, ShopBots are highly adaptive solutions and are easily reconfigured to new production scenarios.

ShopBot Tools has dedicated energy and resources to offering the best, most affordable, and configurable solutions for our CNC tools. We make design and engineering choices based on thorough reasoning and always with our customer’s needs in mind.

Robotics and automation are important for production, but robotic capabilities need to be integrated into manufacturing process in an effective manner. For this, they must be adaptable, flexible, and somewhat mobile. Our tools help manufacturers move away from traditional, capital intensive CNC equipment to CNC that can be modified to match the task at hand.

We use the tools ourselves all day, every day. That’s why we understand how CNC, digital fabrication, and robotics are used in production. We make use of that knowledge in the development of our products and in the technical support we provide to you for your production success.

  • Ease of configuration means operations can often be changed, modified, or upgraded on-the-fly without the need to involve extra engineers or other specialists.
  • ShopBots provide the performance and cut quality of tools five, or even ten, times as expensive. For everyday tasks such as drilling, trimming, panel processing, 3-axis or 5-axis machining or carving, ShopBots are the efficient choice. Our performance-to-price ratio is the leverage that allows practical multiple cell-based operations that will improve your bottom line.
  • CNC becomes a competitive advantage with ShopBot’s production performance coupled with their affordable price points. We offer agile solutions, in various sizes, for a multitude of production situations.

We use our own CNC machines in making the CNC tools that we produce – day-In, day-out. We build them to depend on, in our shop and yours.
