Nothing improves efficiency in a wood- or metalworking shop - or almost any small manufacturing concern - like a CNC (computer numerical control) robot. But if you've priced one, you know the cost is a whopping $7,500 or more. Even plans on the Internet are expensive - and you can't tell if they suit your needs until you've forked over hundreds of dollars. Now for the first time you can get complete directions for building a CNC workshop robot for a total cost of around $1,500! CNC Robotics gives you step-by-step, illustrated directions for designing, constructing, and testing a fully functional CNC robot that saves you 80 percent of the price of an off-the-shelf robot - and that can be customized to suit your purposes exactly, because you designed it. Written by an accomplished workshop robot designer/builder, this book gives you: start-to-finish illustrated instructions; guidance on installing easy-to-understand Windows software for controlling your robot; plenty of time-saving tips, tricks, and pictorial help along the way; scaling and customizing instructions for building just the robot that you want; sources for easily obtained parts; and, a complete course in workshop robot design and construction, perfect for courses or industry. You can build your own workshop robot and bring speed, precision, and automation to your workbench or enterprise.
