CNC for Education

Burns Tools, along with General CNC, has made a strong commitment to helping schools integrate CNC technology into their woodshop programs. 

In 2010, Burns joined General in their vision to integrate CNC technology into educational programs in New England and across the US. Of course the significance of this is that schools can have confidence that they not only have the support of General's technical support department also have a distributor to assist with everything from machine set up and initial training to after sale service when needed.

General will be exhibiting at the ACTE (Association for Career and Technology Education Conference) in Atlanta GA which is held Novemer 29- December 1). If you plan to attend this event we encourage you drop by General's booth for a visit. Here is the link to the conference For those of you who have never attended, this is the largest technical education conference in the country and a very impressive event.

Complete Turnkey Education Packages starting at $3,995!
With the addition of the General iCarver program in 2011 we have now developed complete turnkey CNC packages that start as low as $3,995. These packages include machines, basic tooling, site licenses of software for computer labs, delivery, uncrating and set up of the machinery, initial training and ongoing technical support. We have packages available for both elementary or middle schools as well as secondary and post secondary schools. Follow this link for more information.

We are committed to helping schools introduce CNC automation in the wood shop. Feel free to contact us any time for more information.
