Helpful Insight When Choosing an Automated Solution

Jody provides an in-depth look at what it takes to successfully operate each machine, and lists some of the additional expenses and things to consider when shopping for an automated solution for your application.

With a traditional CNC Router, you will need to hire a CNC Operator, a CNC Programmer and invest in potentially expensive software.

With the Cut Center, all of that is unnecessary. You simply tell it what you want to make and it does it. No extensive knowledge or training required. Anyone can walk up and run a Cut Center, and if there is anything you don’t understand, it plays a video showing you exactly what to do. It also manages your tools, tracks tool life, measures your tools, manages your wasteboard, turns vacuum on and off and generally does all the complicated things automatically so you don’t have to.

This is Manufacturing for Real People.
