We are big supporters of the Shopbot CNC milling machines, not only because of the machine - which is great - but also because of the people working at Shopbot! Ted and Sallye (everyone knows Sallye right ;) ) are really sweet people with an absolute passion for their machines, digital manufacturing, woodworking and education!
With enough production capability for a three-shift factory, ShopBot PRSalpha tools are our toughest, most sophisticated, gantry-based CNC routers. Using advanced technology for CNC cutting, drilling, carving and machining, the PRSalpha series tools deliver rapid transit speeds of 1800 inches per minute and cutting speeds of up to 600 inches per minute. Easy to configure and re-configure, learn and use, the PRSalpha CNC delivers affordable, full-production performance in digital fabrication of wood, plastic, aluminum, and other materials.
Another awesome company is Carbide3D, they created CNC-milling machines to fill the gap between 3D printer and the big CNC milling machines. So they developed the Shapeoko line and the Nomad 883 Pro.
