DURHAM, N.C., April 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ShopBot Tools, one the largest makers of digital fabrication tools in the U.S., has introduced the ShopBot Desktop MAX. The tool joins ShopBot's array of CNC tools used in prototyping and full production for cutting, carving, machining and milling in wood, MDF, plastics, foams, and non-ferrous metals such as aluminum. ShopBot's CNC tools deliver professional power and precision typically associated with more expensive CNC tools.
Jeanne Taylor, ShopBot's Director of Marketing, noted, "The ShopBot Desktop MAX was inspired by our customers, who've been asking for a larger version of our popular ShopBot Desktop (recently named Best Mid-Size CNC by MAKE magazine). The new Desktop MAX tool features a 36" x 24" work area, twice that of the ShopBot Desktop, making it easy to fit items such as guitars, chair and table parts, cabinetry parts and more, onto the bed.
Popular Mechanics recently reviewed the Desktop MAX. Timothy Dahl, their DIY Editor, wrote: "(it's) a well-made, quality tool, and the price is worth it if you want to create large scale CNC-carved projects..." Read the full review at Popular Mechanics.
The Desktop MAX's power and precision will make it a favorite of luthiers, sign makers, furniture makers, and anyone interested in prototyping or full production. It features a removable tool bed, which enables end-machining processes such as creating complex furniture joinery. The tool has two options for beds, an aluminum deck or a plenum with universal hold-down system, which eliminates the need for screws, adhesives, or clamps for holding large sheet goods in place. The Desktop MAX features a dual-motor gantry design, providing impressive stability and precision.
"The tool has twice the work area of the ShopBot Desktop yet it's NOT twice the price," Taylor said. "It's an affordable solution for doing professional CNC work." Pricing for the Desktop MAX starts at $9,090 with the aluminum deck option. The full specs of the tool can be found at ShopBotTools.com. Purchase the tool by calling ShopBot at 888-680-4466.
ShopBot Tools celebrates its 20th year in 2016, continuing to live their mission of making digital fabrication tools widely accessible and user-friendly. ShopBot's CNC routers deliver the power, precision, and reliability of tools traditionally costing thousands of dollars more.
