ShopBot's PRSstandard CNCs are our high-performing yet affordable, gantry-based CNC router, priced at less than $20,000. Using proven ShopBot advanced technology for CNC cutting, drilling, carving and machining, the PRSstandard is the right tool for smaller shops ready to venture into CNC productivity yet don’t require high production speeds.

The PRSstandard uses our proven CNC workhorses, the super-tough motors with low-backlash gear heads as well as open-loop Gecko stepper motor drivers, delivering more power, higher speeds and step resolution, and smoother cutting.

The control system software reads the new open standard for CNC code and OpenSBP as well as the older format for CNC G-Code. The latest version of our control system software is always available for free download from our web site. Best of all, as your needs and shop change, so does your CNC: you can upgrade your PRSstandard to our top-of-the-line, high-performance system by simply adding PRSalpha Control System, drives and motors.

While there are endless possibilities of what you can do with the ShopBot PRSstandard, here are a few examples of areas where people are putting their CNC tool to use:

Cabinet Making

With CNC, cabinetmakers can drill shelf pin holes, cut rabbets and dados, and profile-cut a completed panel. The operator only needs to handle the full sheet once to load the machine, and then remove the perfectly cut parts when complete.

Theaters and Museums

Realize your team’s aesthetic vision and go quickly from hand drawing to CAD design to full-size scenery panels. Complexity is easily incorporated when using CNC, so you can execute all kinds of ideas—including creating components in 3D.

Sign Making

Sign makers are using CNC for 3D carving, V-bit carving, profile contouring, fluting, and engraving. It also provides them with the opportunity to cut their own channel letter components, frames, posts, and borders in-house.
