The IS-M series features a re-enforced heavy-duty one-piece welded structural steel tube frame construction with a massive over-sized structural steel tube gantry design. The frames and gantry assemblies are bed milled for matched tolerances and stressed relieved to ensure accuracy and precision from the ground up. This System provides you the Ultimate Stability and Performance while unlocking Speed and Accuracy not found in competitively priced systems. 

The days of imported technology are in the past – you now can get a TRUE American Made Machine with a Name Brand Industrial Mitsubishi Electronic Motion Controller for a competitive price to the imported machines. The IS-M Series is equipped with the most advanced drive technology in the class – massive ball screws on X, dual Y, and Z axis with ShopSabre Exclusive “Whip Free” Technology. The Mitsubishi over-sized AC servo motors with Closed Loop feedback provide unmatched performance and dependability.  The IS-M Technology improves cutting quality, cutting forces, and overall machine accuracy giving you Higher Speeds and Higher Cutting Accuracy than any machine in the class. Unlike our competition this machine is equipped with absolutely no rack and pinion drives, 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-M Series. Perfect for all high production, high accuracy, or heavy cutting applications whether you are nested-based manufacturing or one-off fabrication, the state-of-the-art IS-M Series features three sizes (4’x8’, 5’x10’, and 6’x12’) built precisely for your needs.

1. Industrial Precision Frame
ShopSabre CNC Frames are FEA Engineered and Tested constructed from Massive 10x15 Steel Tubes which are Stacked and Welded for added rigidity giving you more floor contact and better vibration control. Internally the large tubes are also cross braces and stiffened to increase the rigidity.
2. Mitsubishi Servo Motors
ShopSabre PRO Machines come standard with AC Digital Closed Loop Servo Motors for Higher Speeds, Higher Accuracy, and Less Maintenance–Self Monitoring Glass Encoder Technology provides extreme performance and the IS-M Controller allows for on the fly control from Controller to Motor with True CLOSED Loop to the Machine controller–Mitsubishi is Top Rated Servo Technology in the World!
3. Aero Space Milling Technology
ShopSabre CNC Frames are Run through some of the world’s 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 it’s foundation so the Frame on a ShopSabre is built to a tolerance above the competition.
4. Ball Screw Technology
ShopSabre PRO Machines come standard with 3 Axis Ball Screw Drives with Y Axis (Long Axis) providing Twin Screws to give you 7 times more rigidity than competing machines and unprecedent 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 our Whip Free Technology it increases the cutting accuracy and gives you superior edge finishes–Ball Screw Technology will outlast most comparable machines by as much as 3 to 4 times longer with very little maintenance required.
5. Vacuum Performance
The Vacuum Option on the ShopSabre IS-M Series gives you quick and easy zone control with integrated hard pipe connection for increased air flow and the reserve tank built into the frame to assure your vacuum stays consistent!
6. 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-M 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.
7. Super Z Technology
ShopSabre IS-M Machines are available with the Super Z Technology designed here at ShopSabre CNC. This increases your Z Axis to 16” of Travel while maintaining incredible rigidity thanks in part to our FEA Engineered Stiffener Technology for Tool Plate Strength and our Z Axis Servo Motor Control System and Air Balancer Technology giving you some of the quickest Tool Changes and Drilling cycles in the class!
8. 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.
9. Industrial Precision Gantry
Just like our Frames, our gantry construction is constructed of massive heavy wall 6x12 Tubes that have been FEA Designed and Tested to provide higher cutting forces and less vibration. The Bearing Spacing on our gantries are larger than competition’s machines to better handle the routing forces while increasing cut speeds.
10. Industrial Gantry Uprights
Like everything on a ShopSabre, the Gantry uprights are also more industrial. Using High Quality North American Structural Steel these uprights increase the bridge clearance to 12” Standard and provide more rigidity for better cutting quality and versatility.
11. Bi - Directional Rotary ATC Option
ShopSabre Rotary Carousel ATC Option is the most advanced ATC Technology on the market. Unlike competitors’ systems this ATC Carousel is direct drive through planetary gear connection with 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 provides no belts or slides, it operates just like every ShopSabre system-simple, fast, and effective!
12. Mitsubishi M8 Series Controller
The M in IS-M comes from the Mitsubishi M8 Series Controller. The ShopSabre IS-M brings unbelievable performance to CNC Routing. The IS-M is the first CNC Router in the world to display a M8 Series controller which is the worlds fastest CNC Control. The IS-M controller has the simplicity of our world known CNC interface but the robust speed and communication of a dedicated Mill Style Control. Providing Increased machining speeds, accuracy, and performance the IS-M brings you technology that is indisputably better!
