The ShopBot PRSalpha BenchTop CNC is a Personal Robotic System designed for industrial, commercial or residential applications in wood, acrylic and non-ferrous metals. The smaller PRS CNC incorporates many of the same features as ShopBot's full-size systems, yet weighs less than 500lbs and occupies less than 16 sq. ft. of floor space. The PRSalpha provides the speed and accuracy necessary for precise cutting and milling applications and detailed 3D carving and offers an opportunity for the hobbyist and serious do-it-yourselfer to incorporate the advantages of CNC into home-improvement projects. The PRSalpha Benchtop has a 32"x24" cutting surface and 6" of Z-axis height. The system features AlphaStep closed-loop motors on all three axes, cutting speeds of up to 600ipm and positioning speeds of 1,500ipm.
