Quality and safety in mind
One of our main drives when designing SmartBench was to make a tool which repeatedly produces finished parts within it's stated tolerance time and time again.
  • Reliable and repeatable performance with our patented design
  • Finished part accuracy starts at +/-0.020" or better
  • Tolerances of +/- 0.009" are achievable with good tool path strategies and sharp tooling
  • Listen to your cut and adjust accordingly with our "On the fly" spindle and feed speed control
  • Automatic or manual squaring depending on the finish results required
  • Simple calibration walk through app
 
Next generation Yeti spindle and ZHead V2 takes SmartBench to the next level
  • Job pause on overload function
  • New 1000W Yeti High Performance spindle
  • Digital speed control
  • Ready to accept our upcoming shop dust shoe for larger volume extraction systems
 
Safety upper most in our minds.
  • CE certified and FCC Compliant
  • Remote software upgrades means you get the benefit of our ever increasing library of cutting apps
  • E Stop
  • Interrupt bars along the x axis

What else do I need?
CAD/CAM software

In order to get cutting, you’ll need to use your own CAD/CAM software to design and create your projects. We recommend you use Vectric VCarve Pro or Autodesk's Fusion 360 to model and CAM process your files. Fusion is free to makers, education and small businesses.

Other G Code generating CAD/CAM packages can be used.

Router bits

Standard router bits with a shank of up to a maximum 10mm diameter can be used to fit the router head.

Extraction

You will need to provide an extraction unit to attach our standard hose to, and then plug the power supply into the on/off socket provided.

Pricing, Warranty, Installation & Maintenance
Pricing

VAT or your local sales tax are not included in the quoted prices.
