About Next Wave Automation

Ohio-based Next Wave Automation designs and builds affordable, high-quality CNC machines and other small-format automation application systems designed to meet the needs of hobbyist woodworkers and professional shops alike. Creator of the popular CNC Shark line, Next Wave has been a leader in the effort to make CNC technology accessible to those previously priced out of the market.

The company prides itself on service, agility and innovation, demonstrated by its continuous enhancement of the Shark line and the development of new products like the CNC Piranha and the Ready2Rout and Ready2Lift line of computer-controlled router table components. For many woodworkers, Next Wave has been the gateway into the world of CNC technology.
