CNC machining center does printing and labeling
September 21, 2018 | 6:27 am CDT

LANCASTER, PA -- CNC Factory will demonstrate its new Python XPR machining center at Wood Pro Expo October 19-19. The machine combines third generation (3G) robotic loading and unloading and new printing and labeling. Now users benefit from multi-directional graphic and text labeling instructions on nested materials. With these in place, woodworkers always know which edges need post-production attention, and operators never lose track of cut pieces. Plus, the on-board Cabinet Vision software allows printing in various orientations.

Built in the USA at CNC Factory's Santa Ana, CA shop, the Python XPR is designed with profitability, speed and ease of use, according to the company.  It is the workhorse of all CNC machines saving users’ backs and delivers a host of grow-as-you-grow features.  “Customers love the fact that the Python XPR never needs homing and is easy to use,” says CNC Factory owner and operations manager Chris Corrales.

Corrales, who designed the Python XPR, notes that he “included an automated 12-tool carousel that changes tools in just four seconds, and moves 1800 inches per minute. The Python conquers long, complex, multi-tool tasks efficiently from one to fifty sheets, with just one push of a button. It’s ergonomical, user-friendly, and needs only one operator to run in either robotic or manual mode.”  

The Python XPR sells for $69,900 and includes training and life-long customer support.  Meet Chris Corrales at WPE Lancaster in Booth # 205 Thursday and Friday mornings October 18 and 19 at the large, popular trade show venue, Warehouse at the Nook.  Click HERE to see a complete exhibitor list.
