CNC ROUTERS AND CONTROL SYSTEMS
Check out the new GX Series CNC Routers!
PROBOTIX™ builds precision CNC routers and CNC control systems for your prototyping, production, industrial, or advanced hobby/home use. While we love our hobby CNC Router users, we outfit mostly small business and start-ups. We also equip successful and established businesses looking to capitalize on modern, affordable CNC processes. Companies with unique or custom cut products and businesses who do not have the square footage for a full size machine find the perfect fit with a PROBOTIX™ CNC router. Or perhaps they want several small machines running multiple parts at the same time in the same space as a full sized machine. Most PROBOTIX™ machine owners end up with two, three (or even more) of our CNC routers because of their precision, reliability, scalability, and ease of use.
Our new GX series machines are fully assembled precision CNC routers using HD aluminum extrusion that provides a sturdier high-rigidity gantry for supreme performance. An upgrade from our Galaxy Series Machines like the Comet, Meteor, Nebula, and Asteroid - the new GX Series CNC Routers offer taller uprights to provide more space on the z axis.
We serve the hobby, industrial, start-up and educational markets alike and are priced to provide the biggest bang for your buck with stellar and unmatched service in the industry. Our educational facilities are able to purchase two or more of our machines for the price of one of our competition, allowing for more science, technology, engineering and mathematics education on a limited school budget. Our digital manufacturing products and CNC machines continually help small businesses and startups automate their manufacturing and designs to grow their production output and minimize their costs.
People use our CNC machines to make wooden bow-ties, duck calls, custom furniture, pickle-ball paddles, speaker cabinets, quad-copter drone parts, printed circuit boards, custom guitars and ukeleles, gun holsters, skateboards, pool cues, cabinets, signs, and on and on and on. Our machines are used to make molds and fixtures, as well as complete finished products. We can help tailor a solution to fit your manufacturing needs.
LinuxCNC is our control software system of choice. When you need reliability, you cannot depend on any of the current Windows/USB based programs. Windows doesn't have the precise timing needed for machine control, and so you have to couple it with expensive external hardware whose firmware is not robust or reliable. The Arduino based CNC controllers are severely lacking in proper machine controls, for instance GRBL doesn't even have proper jog capabilities. LinuxCNC on the other hand is a full featured, rock-solid stable, open source, CNC controller. It was originally developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology before being given to the open source community... and we are experts at supporting it.
We have sold machines and control systems to Intel, Microsoft, Apple, Sun Microsystems, Cornell University, MIT, Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Carnegie Melon, U of I, Auburn University, Georgia Tech, Penn State, Rose-Hulman, LSU, UCLA, UC San Diego, UC Irvine, UC Santa Cruz, Minnesota State, Michigan State, University of Texas, USC, Embry Riddle, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Stratasys, 3M, Dow, Siemens, Microsoft, Cafe Press, Hurley, ALPS, Asurion, US Navy, US Army, NIST, NASA, Disney, Wrigley, Akamai, Ovation Guitars, Honeywell, General Electric, Northrup Grumman , Lockheed Martin, SpaceX, Boeing, Caterpillar, John Deere, and many, many more.
Be cautious of the Chinese machines being branded as American or Canadian brands (ie Laguna, Shopbot, Baleigh, etc). We sell replacement controllers to people all of the time who get frustrated with the quality, limitations, and lack of support from those brands. Whatever you buy, make sure you will get the support you need.
