Showbot CNC course at MIDASLooking to revamp your kitchen or shop? Making cabinet components on a CNC router is entirely do-able. Using CNC technology, cabinetmakers are now able to increase production while minimizing material handling.  In addition to high-volume furniture and millwork companies, novice and master craftsmen alike are embracing CNC technology.

Need a sign for your business and want to give it some oomph? Shopbots can be used to carve images in wood and foam, to cut plastic and aluminum letters, and to intricately machine the all sorts of graphic objects and letters. Full 3D cutting capabilities allow cutting and machining of practically anything.

Maybe you’re a water sports enthusiast with a vision of building your dream boat. Boatbuilding is a natural for utilizing the benefits of CNC technology.  In fact, the first ShopBot was developed as a boatbuilder’s tool. In boatbuilding, Shopbot CNCs are used for cutting frames, plywood panels and all manner of interior and exterior parts. They are used in wood, fiberglass and aluminum production processes.

Looking to create your dream guitar?  The Shopbot CNC can supplement your traditional woodworking tools. While the CNC may not duplicate all of the specialized processes involved in instrument making, it can offer new capabilities to assist in bringing your instrument to completion.

Makers of all disciplines:  the Shopbot CNC can be used in many ways for prototyping, reverse engineering and modeling. As a rapid prototyping tool, this equipment can machine foam, wood, plastics and aluminum to efficiently create prototype and reproduction parts. Shopbots are used in large-scale production, from Boeing’s F/A-18 Hornet fighter jet to WoodMode’s custom cabinets.  Production operations from drilling and trimming to more complex milling or machining are easily customized and incorporated into cellular production operations.

CNC stands for computer numerical control and a CNC router only functions connected to a computer equipped with software to direct the tool path of the machine. A power tool router is affixed to the machine that directs its X and Y coordinates as it cuts. Router bits of various shapes and sizes are used for achieving different cutting results.

CNC routers can be used to cut wood, foam, and plastics. Projects include interior and exterior decorations, signage, wood frames, toys, finishing carpentry (cabinets, mouldings), as well as larger objects like furniture, boats, and even houses.
