1. Does Accu-Router just rebuild old machines now?

No. We build both new & Green CNC’s depending on a customer’s budget, preferences, capacity needs, and availability of compatible pre-owned platforms. Accu-Router is a custom-builder at often “stock prices”, meaning we’ll build exactly what you need, rather than sell you what we have.

2. Why are some Green CNC’s priced similarly to new competitive machines?

In a word, those new competitive machines are likely not as heavily-built as a new or Green Accu-Router. Our claim of “save $50k vs all-new machine” applies to Green CNC vs. similarly equipped new Accu-Router. No matter what salesmen tell you, there can be GREAT VARIATION across similarly-configured CNC routers, dramatically impacting system reliability, uptime, and your total cost of ownership (TCO). Integrating technologies to work together and flourish in demanding environments is an Accu-Router strength. Not all rollers are created equal, nor are 15HP spindles, or Fanuc controls. Just ask our customers. Competitive spec review … we’ve been doing this every day since 1983; there are no real mysteries. There’s a short list of builders that strive for our quality standards. Want a second opinion? Provide us copies of all the quotes you received, even omitting pricing if you wish. We’ll give you our best objective view of where the differences lie, and what it will mean to your production in a few months, years, etc …

4. Does Accu-Router still build “all new” CNC machines?

Absolutely! At any given time, up to half our orders are for “all new” machines. Again, it depends on your budget, preferences, capacity needs, and availability of compatible pre-owned platforms.

Recent examples of new machines include a 7 axis, twin table ultrasonic knife cutting cell and a four spindle servo lateral adjust HV cell with an automated conveyor system for unmatched output. Both could have also been executed as Green CNC’s.

5. Can customers count on Accu-Router for leading-edge innovation & product development?

Yes, and they should. Many of our best innovations have grown from customer challenges & requests. Accu-Router introduced roller holddown to the industry in 1985, in-house liquid-chilled spindles in 1994, and our automated load/unload launched in 1999 has been refined multiple times to-date. By not waiting on the operator, “machine-paced” production can more than double cell output.
