ShopBot Will Test-Cut Your Design at IWF Atlanta 2014

Thinking about adding CNC technology into your production? ShopBot Tools has announced a special offering for attendees at this summer’s International Woodworking Fair (IWF) in Atlanta, August 20 – 23. For those who are seriously exploring CNC solutions in woodworking (or virtually any material), ShopBot will demonstrate the cutting of your design, live at the event.

Ryan Patterson, ShopBot’s Director of Production Support, noted, “Our tools enable tremendous efficiencies for manufacturers, and really the best way to understand the power and precision of CNC technology is to see it in action. That’s why we’re providing this opportunity for interested professionals.”

Patterson invites you to send him information about your product and production needs, and include a design that ShopBot will cut on either the ShopBot PRS Alpha 96 X 48 with Automatic Tool Changer, or ShopBot Desktop. Your design can be anything from a pencil sketch to a CAD drawing file — we’ll take it from there and get it prepped to cut.

Interested? Send an email to  You’ll need to contact Ryan by August 8th in order to “make the cut.” In your email, mention your production needs, and attach your design. The ShopBot team will perform material cutting for a limited number of IWF attendees on a first-come first-served basis.
