New Technology Update: Is Combination CNC Equipment Right for You?

Optimizing Equipment Footprint for Shop Size

Combination CNC equipment, such as FROG360™, refers to a single piece of equipment that can perform the full range of 3D CNC fabrication tasks (scanning, cutting, milling) usually divided between several different machines. Determining if such an equipment solution is the right fit for your business depends on a number of factors including budget, shop size, and production demands.

Optimizing Equipment Footprint for Shop Size

Because combination 3D CNC fabrication technology like the FROG360™ is a single piece of equipment, it can be a better choice for small shops or if you are looking to integrate 3D CNC capabilities into a shop that is already quite full. The smaller footprint of a combination machine also makes it ideal for remote locations by reducing transport and installation costs. Aside from the footprint of the machinery itself, it is also important to consider the amount of floor space required for manipulating and finishing projects, which is generally much larger than the size of the actual equipment. Without appropriate room to maximize workflow, overall productivity can be compromised so it is important to select the equipment solution that is the best fit for your shop.
