With an array of standard features that can only be found as expensive add-ons elsewhere.
Our machine is a true workhorse. It is at home in a production shop running 8 hours per day, every day or in your home workshop being used on the weekends.
Hard to believe? See it for yourself.
We've done all the work for you, but please feel free to verify.
While coming fully loaded with features that many sellers consider to be costly add-on options.
We do this by cutting down on superficial frills while sparing no expense on components where it really counts. While less expensive offerings do exist, they are usually made from cheap plastic or HDPE materials and components.
We consider them to be necessary and therefore include them standard with our machines.
Many partners in this space want to advertise with low cost routers only to get you on the phone and up sell. This is not us, ever!
We may ask what you are planning to machine and offer suggestions to improve based on experience, but we will downgrade you to a router for this level of machine torque.
The end result is a satisfied customer and long lasting/trusting relationship.
We designed our base machine to satisfy the majority of user requirements.
There's no hidden fees. No tricks, no games. Just get to work.
The PA-5050 features a welded frame of structural steel. The mounting surfaces for the X and Y rails are cast with an self leveling epoxy designed for precision rail mounting surfaces. This ensures a dead flat surface on Y and parallel surfaces on X upon which the rails are mounted. We do not use plastic for structural components.
We offer a true working area. While many machines boast a 48x48 working area, we recognize the fact that common materials, such as MDF, come in slightly larger dimensions. We designed our machine to be able to use every bit of the material. Furthermore, the PA-5050 includes enough margin area around the working area to be able to use clamps without encroaching on the working area. Our machines actual cutting limits are more like 51" wide by 53" length which no one in this space can touch.
Inquire about our PA-50100 which features an actual cutting limit of 51" wide by 103" length. With this large span you can throw a full sheet of virtually anything up there and cut away...
This includes temperature monitoring of the electronics enclosure. Cooling fans turn on only when needed, reducing unnecessary noise and filter consumption. The status of the VFD is monitored, so a problem with the spindle stops the machine instead of ruining your workpiece. Your spindle time, filter hours, and fan hours are monitored, letting you know when maintenance is required, proactively.
The PA-5050 works out of the box with our wireless accessory controls.

Advantages of leasing to your business
1. Gain Major Tax Benefits
You may deduct your monthly lease payments as an operating expense. Leasing also helps you avoid the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT). With capital leases, you may also deduct up to $25k of your capital expenditure.
2. Conserve Capital
Cash is always king. Keep more of it at work in your business by leasing. You will be free to spend on other items such as inventory, personnel, advertising, if your money is not tied up in equipment costs. This will give your company more financial flexibility.
3. Cover 100% of Your Equipment Costs
You can include all the soft costs related to your equipment purchase (i.e. shipping, software, installation, tooling, taxes) right into the lease.
