June 27, 2019 | 7:45 am CDT

DURHAM, N.C. -- ShopBot Tools, a designer and manufacturer of CNC routers, has announced a special offering for attendees at the AWFS Fair in Las Vegas, July 17-20. For those who are seriously exploring CNC technology in woodworking, ShopBot will demonstrate the cutting of their design, live at the event.

“Our tools enable tremendous efficiencies for manufacturers, and really the best way to understand the power and precision of CNC technology is to see it in action,” said Ryan Patterson, ShopBot engineer. “That's why we're providing this opportunity for interested professionals.”

Patterson invites show attendees to send him information about their product and production needs, and include a design, that ShopBot will cut on either the ShopBot PRSalpha 96 x 48, with automatic tool changer, or the ShopBot Desktop MAX ATC.

The design can be anything from a pencil sketch to a CAD drawing file. Get in touch via email at Contact Patterson by July 5 in order to “make the cut.” The ShopBot team will perform material cutting for a limited number of AWFS Fair attendees on a first-come, first-served basis.

Manufacturers using wood or other materials are encouraged to get in touch with the ShopBot team to discuss their production needs. See
