IS-A Series CNC Router Features

Industrial Precision Frame

ShopSabre CNC Frames are FEA Engineered and Tested. Created here in Lakeville, Minnesota and constructed from Massive over-sized structural tube steel, then aerospace milled for accuracy, and welded for rigidity. Our Stacked and Welded design adds rigidity giving you more floor contact and better vibration control. Internally the large tubes are also cross braces and stiffened to increase the lateral rigidity.

IS-A Series CNC Router Features

Mitsubishi Servo Motors

ShopSabre IS-A Machines come standard with the Top Rated Motion Control in the world, including Mitsubishi AC Digital Closed Loop Servo Motors for Higher Speeds, Higher Accuracy, and Less Maintenance. These motors are Self-Monitoring and include Glass Encoder Technology which provides increased accuracy and performance under extreme conditions. The IS-A Controller allows for on the fly control from Controller to Motor with True CLOSED Loop to the Machine controller (Mitsubishi M8 Series).

IS-A Series CNC Router Features

Aero Space Milling Technology

ShopSabre CNC Frames are Run through some of the worlds most advanced processes to assure they are accurate including Precision Milling of contact surfaces for Bearing & Rail Placement along with Ball Screw Mounts. A machine can only be as accurate as its foundation so the Frame on a ShopSabre is built to a tolerance above the competition.

IS-A Series CNC Router Features

Ball Screw Technology

ShopSabre IS-A Machines come standard with 3 Axis Ball Screw Drives with Y Axis (Long Axis) providing Twin Screws and Anti-Whip technology to give you 7 times more rigidity than competing machines and unprecedented performance. Ball Screw Technology used at ShopSabre is the latest in the Industry which gives you less backlash than Rack and Pinion and thanks to our Whip Free Technology it increases the cutting accuracy and gives you superior edge finishes. When it comes to drive system technology, Ball Screw Technology will outlast most comparable machines by as much as 3 to 4 times longer with very little maintenance required.

IS-A Series CNC Router Features

Mitsubishi M8 Series Controller

The controller featured on the IS-A is the world’s fasted CNC Controller - Mitsubishi M8 Series Controller. The ShopSabre IS-A brings unbelievable performance to CNC Routing that previously was only found in high-speed machining centers. The IS-A offers predictable and dependable control in large part due to the closed loop nature of the control to the servo motors and the speed of cutting is noticeably different when comparing to equally priced equipment. The IS-A controller has the simplicity of our world known CNC interface but the robust speed and communication of a dedicated style control. With the IS-A you can expect increased machining speeds, better accuracy, and performance that will outlast the competition.
The IS-A controller is indisputably better!

IS-A Series CNC Router Features
Vacuum Performance

The IS-A comes standard with the world’s most recognized vacuum pump, the VTLF 2.400 Becker Pump. Available with 1 or 2 pumps depending on your needs to produce superior hold down strength without the absorbent costs found in much larger pumps.
Additionally, the IS-A Series gives you quick and easy zone control thanks to the automated vacuum zones, bringing vacuum control to your fingertips through the push of a button. No longer will you be walking to the machine to open or close zones, this system automates and streamlines the process so you can spend more time cutting and less time wasted walking around.
The IS-A Vacuum table accommodates 4x8, 5x10, and 5x5 sheet sizes through the engineered Hi-Flow Vacuum Table. This is truly a one size fits all application.

HiFlow Vacuum Technology

ShopSabre CNC HiFlow Vacuum Technology increases the surface flow by as much as 50% over the competition which in the end results in higher holding pressures and power and better performance. Each Vacuum table on the IS-A Series comes Milled from the factory by your machine cutting head reducing the needs for gaskets and bolts to hold your spoil board down and our exclusive HiFlow Grid makes nested manufacturing a breeze.

Super Z Technology

ShopSabre IS-A Machines come standard with ShopSabre’s Super Z Technology. This increases your Z Axis speed for increased drilling and tool changes while maximizing your rigidity during high-speed cutting. This produces superior edge finish and part accuracy. The Super Z Technology was designed through FEA Engineering in house to meet the machines expectations, powered by a powerful AC Closed Loop Z Axis Servo Motor and assisted with the ShopSabre’s world recognized Air Balancer Technology this increases your machines overall performance & dependability giving you some of the quickest Tool Changes and Drilling cycles in the class!

Precision Linear Guide Technology

ShopSabre CNC uses the latest in CNC Bearing Technology with 25MM Linear Guide Rails and Bearings on all Axis. Each axis has 4 Large Body Quad Bearing rollers with wipers to increase the performance of your machine. These Bearings assure the surfaces stay clean while increasing the machine rigidity under load which results in increased performance and reduced maintenance in large part due to the ball bearing technology.

Industrial Offload Capabilities

Just like everything at ShopSabre, this was engineered in house to produce a more dependable and robust design. The ShopSabre offload push bar is heavy duty in design yet simple in technology, producing a quicker and more dependable way to offload your machine to maximize your profits. Coupled with our automated offload table, this feature is sure to increase your throughput while reducing your overhead demands so even in the highest demanding shops the ShopSabre IS-A can help you achieve new heights.

Bi - Directional Rotary ATC with at Cutting Head Design

Over the years ShopSabre has continued to push the boundary of Tool Changing and the IS-A is no different. Included standard is the ShopSabre Bi-directional Rotary Carousel capable of holding up to 12 tools and located right at the cutting head making the time to change tools quicker than ever. This ATC Option is the most advanced ATC Technology on the market and unlike competitor’s systems this ATC Carousel is direct drive through planetary gear connection providing bi-directional tool changing which allows the tool changer to travel the shortest distance to the next tool regardless of direction. Also, this ATC system operates just like every ShopSabre system-simple, fast, and effective!
