An Industry Changer!
Our IS Series gives you a true machine grade tool with everything you could want in a CNC router. American built with top-of-the-line name brand components and technology all backed by our free lifetime technical support, the IS Series gives you the design and specs of an $80,000+ machine for a fraction of the cost.
The IS series features a one-piece welded structural steel tube frame construction with a massive over-sized structural steel tube gantry design and tube steel uprights. The frames and gantry assemblies are bed milled for matched tolerances and stressed relieved to ensure accuracy and precision from the ground up. Our IS Series routers feature the sturdiest construction available to handle even your biggest projects. They’re also built to last with upgraded bearing and drive system technology consisting of massive ball screws on X, dual Y, and Z axis, the over-sized AC servo motors, and top-rated linear guide technology. These features improve cutting quality, cutting forces, and overall machine accuracy. Unlike the typical rack and pinion drives found in the competition, ShopSabre machines are built to outlast and outperform other machines. No matter how much you use your CNC router, you’ll get the precision you need every time from the ShopSabre IS Series. Perfect for all high production or heavy cutting applications whether you are nested-based manufacturing or one-off fabrication, the state-of-the-art IS Series features three sizes built precisely for your needs.
