This newest addition to our desktop CNC tool line has the industrial precision and power capabilities of our other desktop tools. The boost is an Automatic Tool Changer. An ATC reduces production time by quickly and robotically changing cutters between tool paths, eliminating the need to change and zero tools individually.

The ShopBot Desktop MAX ATC has a 36” x 24” work area, and is available with two different deck options. Take full advantage of the efficiency that digital fabrication and small shop robotics provide with the ShopBot Desktop MAX ATC.

Desktop MAX ATC with Aluminum Deck

The Desktop MAX ATC with Aluminum Deck (general purpose deck) comes standard with an attached MDF spoil board and is considered our most versatile deck option for a wide variety of machining options. Because the Desktop MAX ATC is completely open underneath and the aluminum deck can be partially or completely removed, you can add widely available dovetailing or end-milling attachments.

Desktop MAX ATC with Universal Vacuum Hold Down Deck

The Desktop MAX ATC with Universal Vacuum Hold Down Deck kit includes a plywood plenum, MDF spoil board, and the ShopBot Vacuube™ for quick hold down of sheet goods. This deck option is not optimal for cutting small parts, but is well-suited for large parts without additional hold down from screws, nylon nails, or tabs. There is increased environmental noise due to the vacuum motor and hearing protection is highly recommended (82db).

See the Hold Down at a Glance chart for more information on hold down.
