Topic tags/keywords: cnc question

Hello,
We are setting up new millwork shop in VA.
Mostly we do is commercial millwork like frameless cabinets with laminate finish.
I was trying to get a strebig panel saw and changed my mind to CNC.

Our budget is about 30k-40k.
I searched through the web and found lots of CNC list.
Shopbot, Camaster, Shop Sabre, Legacy, Laguna, Shark, K2, CastCNC, Larken, EZ-router, WinCNC, newcnc.com etc…
I will keep doing on my research but meanwhile I want to have some woodworking expert recommendation.

Would you guys recommend one? Pros and Cons?
Budget – 30K-40K
Mostly we do – frameless boxes

Thank you!!

If that’s your budget, probably Shopbot or Camaster.
How many employees do you have?
How much work do you do?

I’d generally recommend spending more, and getting a more capable machine.

I have Busellato easy jet 5.12 for over 2 months and it’s been a rollercoaster since day 1. On the second day of installation unpleasant accident happened, I was attacked by Scm/Busellato tech, but I didn’t press charges. Easy-jet came with one part broken- they call it muffler- and 2 months after I received 4 or more packages with spare parts but there is no-one good! Today I called about problem with post processor and tech Benjamin from SCM/BUSELLATO hang up on me accusing me of using illegal copy of Alphacam. I was train in Europe where I bought alphacam. They are telling me that they will not help me because they don’t have alphacam license in their data base in here.
SCM GROUP, BUSELLATO YOU SHOULD TAKE CARE OF YOUR PRODUCTS AND STOP WORRYING ABOUT THE OTHER’S PRODUCTS. IF YOU DIDN’T SELL IT IT DOESN’T MEAN THAT YOU CAN ACCUSE ANYONE FOR HAVING ILLEGAL COPY! YOU SOLD ME EASY JET AND POST PROCESSOR SO GET BACK TO WORK ON THOSE PRODUCTS!
I didn’t call about alphacam, I called about post processor!! And every time they logged into a team viewer they start changing options of team viewer without permission.
MY COMPUTER=MY PROPERTY!
I’m thinking of returning the machine very seriously.
This is real service from Scm, Buselato and I didn’t signed for that. BE AWARE!
BTW it costs $72 grand
Stay away from them, I highly recommend Biesse as I have one cnc router and edgebander from them. Service is great, even that I bought it used and they’re still on the phone with me, helping me.

Have your say...
