ShopBot Tools began in the workshop/barn of Ted Hall more than 12 years ago. Ted's hobby is building plywood boats, and he was becoming frustrated by the amount of time it was taking to cut the panels for curved hulls with hand power tools. He thought a computerized cutting tool called a CNC (computer numerically controlled) router would be helpful, but didn't have the $40,000 that even a used, entry-level machine would cost. So he started thinking about a practical way to make one of the tools less expensively - after all, they seemed to be just large plotters that moved a cutter instead of a pen. Ted's first model worked surprisingly well ... and working out the details of the tool while growing excited over the possibilities of affordable CNC led him to begin spending more time tool designing than boat building. Since that time, affordable ShopBots have become one of the largest selling CNC routers. Almost 6,000 are productively working away in small shops and larger production facilities across the United States and around the world. They are used for all sorts of woodworking and cabinetmaking, and are involved in a range of production operations from producing stealth fighters to manufacturing hi-tech housing.ApplicationsCABINETS - Making cabinet components on a CNC router has become a common practice today. The technology of manufacturing cabinet boxes, doors, drawer fronts, shelves and even countertops with a robotic tool is now well within the reach of smaller shops. Using CNC technology, cabinetmakers are now able to increase production throughput, while minimizing material handling. [David Buchsbaum's Cabinet Making WebColumn, Notes from the Sandbox] WOODWORKING - In addition to high-volume furniture and millwork companies, novice and master craftsmen alike are embracing CNC technology in their workshops. SIGNS - ShopBots are used in signmaking 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. [J.D. Isles' Signmaking WebColumn, Lincoln Logs] BOATS - Boatbuilding is a natural for utilizing the benefits of CNC technology, and 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. INSTRUMENTS - Luthiers of all disciplines can now supplement their traditional woodworking tools with CNC routers. While the CNC may not duplicate all of the specialized processes involved in instrument making, it brings new capabilities that can transform an ordinary shop to an extraordinary one. MANUFACTURING - ShopBots are used in 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. INTERIOR & CREATIVE DESIGN/BUILD - CNC tools provide builders and remodeling professionals new capabilities to produce distinctive work. Carving, trim, arches and various architectural forms can be reproduced for remodeling work or created for new designs. ARCHITECTURAL MILLWORK - With the development of powerful, easy-to-use software and a CNC router, just about anyone can carve beautiful parts, even if he is not a world-class hand carver. PROTOTYPING & MODELING - A CNC tool can be used in many ways for prototyping, reverse engineering and modeling. As a rapid prototyping tool, a ShopBot can machine foam, wood, plastics and aluminum to efficiently create prototype and reproduction parts. SHOPBOTS IN EDUCATION - CNC tools and ShopBots are becoming a focus for new types of technology training in educational settings.
