CNC Factory to demo 'driverless' Python CNC nesting router at WPE Lancaster

CNC Factory's Python is engineered throughout with 5th Generation CNC technology. Even an inexperienced operator can quickly learn how to efficiently run the machine. 

MANHEIM, Lancaster County, Pa. – CNC Factory will demonstrate the Python XPR CNC router, winner of FDMC’s Best CNC for 2020 at Wood Pro Expo Lancaster, Oct. 14-15.

The Python is engineered throughout with 5th Generation CNC technology. Because the router is completely driverless, even an inexperienced operator can quickly learn how to efficiently run the machine. By simply pressing a few buttons on the touchscreen, the Python goes into autopilot, eliminating all heavy lifting and critical thinking required of a skilled operator. The driverless controls automatically handle all of the machine’s functions from loading sheets of material and spoil board cleaning to rapid cutting, parts marking, and unloading.

5th Generation features of the Python include:

  • Automatic loading, unloading, cleaning, and material alignment;
  • No homing or daily calibration;
  • Driverless, mobile control center with large 21-inch touchscreen, remote access and wireless remote;
  • Ability to design parts at the machine;
  • Dual-layer, high-flow vacuum table with automatic valve controls;
  • Patent-pending dust hood material sensing; 
  • Helical rack and pinion for absolute positioning; and
  • Plug and play upgrades including robotic label printing and application.
