Next Wave Automation CNC Shark HD5

Wave Automation has just announced a July 17, 2019 product launch date for the CNC Shark HD5, its most robust and feature-rich machine to date. CNC Shark HD5 includes patented Virtual Zero Unlimited software as well as Ready2Control for multiple machine operation.

It is the latest addition to the company’s well-known Shark line of small format CNC machines for professional woodshops, hobbyists and makers. The new CNC Shark HD5 is designed for use with 2-1/4HP routers or Next Wave’s water-cooled spindle and is built in the USA with industrial grade components.

Through September 30, 2019, Next Wave will be including a Dewalt DW618 router at no extra charge as part of an introductory product promotion.

“The new CNC Shark HD5 is an amazing machine,” says Tim Owens, Next Wave Automation’s founder and CEO. “We purpose-built the HD5 to be the best-in-class, small format CNC for performance, value and support – and I’m thrilled to say that we’ve achieved that end.” Owens ends with, “There’s nothing else out there that comes close to this CNC and we anticipate that many people will discover that the HD5 is the tool that truly completes their shop.”

More about CNC Shark HD5 features:

  • Built to be used with large, 2-1/4HP routers or Next Wave’s water-cooled spindle (sold separately) – the CNC Shark HD5 can handle virtually all shop machining needs
  • Dewalt DW618 router will be included with purchase through 9/30/19
  • Virtual Zero Unlimited - patented Next Wave software maps the surface of the material by taking an unlimited number of reference points. The program then uses these points to auto adjust the G-code to conform to the actual surface of the material. This eliminates problems caused by a warped or bowed work piece by maintaining a constant cutting depth on projects that other machines would not be able to handle.
