ShopSabre, a U.S. manufacturer of CNC routers and plasmas, introduced a Pro Series model featuring a dual Y-axis ball-screw drive system with hidden Y-axis bearings for longer life and more precision. This drive system, combined with servomotors, allow shops of any size to be more efficient and profitable, says the company.
“The new ShopSabre Pro Series is opening up a lot of capabilities for consumers to be able to do what they traditionally couldn’t do without spending a lot more money. Most machines competitively priced to this Pro Series don’t have the rigidity or drive-system technology that this table has,” product manager Brandon Bombardo says.
He adds the Pro Series is priced, starting at $30,000, to be affordable for startup and entry-level shops, while providing the strength, options and capabilities required by high-production manufacturers.
“This machine is for anyone, but it’s really going to make a difference in your small-to-medium production shops. It’s going to hit home with the one-to-five employee shop that doesn’t have the automation capabilities they may want,” Bombardo says.
The Pro Series is available with a 4’ x 8’ or 5’ x 10’ table, and options such as vacuum hold down, T-slots, auto tool changers, fourth axis, C-axis aggregates, vision systems, knife attachments and more.
