ShopBot Tools, one of the leaders in the design and manufacturing of professional and affordable CNC routers, has announced the expansion of their customized CNC tool services.
Making CNC technology and tools accessible to everyone has been a commitment from ShopBot Tools since they started in 1996.
Recently, the company has noticed a new trend, namely an increase in requests for more customized CNC tools. Specializations include things like a deeper Z-axis, multiple spindles, tool sizes different than standard size offerings, and having a dedicated rotary axis, among others.
“Because ShopBot is the OEM for our machines and components, we take ownership of our projects from start to finish,” says ShopBot COO Brian Owen.
“We also handle all aspects for the customer from project scoping and design to procurement, assembly, shipment and installation. Since the people working on each step of this process are the same people that design and build our standard CNC machinery, they have the understanding and skills to work directly with the customer to learn about what they need from a CNC tool.”
ShopBot continues to believe that everyone should be able to successfully employ the capabilities of CNC, making small and medium-size shops competitive in today’s market.
With 25 years of engineering and design experience, and the versatile, expandable, and upgradable nature of the ShopBot machine platform, ShopBot’s engineering team will work with customers to spec out a tool to fit their custom application. “We work one-on-one with companies, big and small, as well as individuals, to get them the tool that they need,” says ShopBot lead engineer, Ryan Patterson.
“Because we have experience working with a wide range of materials, and are the people that design, build, and support the tools, we’re able to help customers find a machine to fit their workflow and increase throughput in their shops.”
