Advanced Drive Motors

ShopSabre 23 Machines come standard with High Torque Industrial Grade Motors for Higher Accuracy, Higher Cutting Torque, and Less Maintenance. Each drive motor is specifically FEA paired to the machine for output and torque to assure you dont need to add air to the machine to operate regardless of the options you select!

ShopSabre 23 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. A machine can only be as accurate as its foundation so the Frame on a ShopSabre is built to a tolerance above the competition.

Ball Screw Technology

ShopSabre 23 Machines come standard with 3 Axis Ball Screw Drives giving you 2 times more rigidity than competing machines and unprecedented performance. Ball Screw Technology used at ShopSabre is the latest in the Industry including which gives you less backlash than Rack and Pinion and thanks to the compact design of the ShopSabre 23 there is no concern with whip.

ShopSabre 23 CNC Router Features

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 23 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.

ShopSabre 23 CNC Router Features
Super Z Technology

ShopSabre 23 Machines is available with the Super Z Technology designed here at ShopSabre CNC. This increases your Z Axis rigidity thanks in part to our FEA Engineered Stiffener Technology for Tool Plate Strength. The Upgraded Z Motor standard makes it easy to upgrade to a higher torque spindle without the need to add an air compressor.

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 Precision Gantry

Just like our Frames, our gantry construction is constructed of massive heavy wall Tube that have been FEA Designed and Tested to provide higher cutting forces and less vibration. The Bearing Spacing on our gantries are larger than competitions machines to better handle the routing forces while increasing cut speeds.

Industrial Gantry Uprights

Like everything on a ShopSabre, the Gantry uprights are also more industrial. Using High Quality North American Plate Aluminum which have been milled and welded these uprights increase the bridge rigidity and provide better cutting quality and versatility.

Gantry Overhang

The ShopSabre 23 comes standard with our right-side gantry overhang making it possible to do larger work off the table. This makes adding 4th Axis, doing vertical dovetails, or fixturing a breeze!
