The Standard Warranty that was previously included in the price of the machine is now available as an option. Plus, we have again answered our customer’s requests by now offering an Extended Warranty for your system.

These warranties include the follow warranty period limitations, but each customer is responsible for reading and understanding their warranty agreement in full. Access to those legal documents, rights and restrictions, inclusions and exclusions, are provided through the associated links:

Warranty Price w/Machine

These warranties are only available for new machines and must be purchased no later than 90 days from time of new machine purchase. The Minimum and Extended Warranties are only available through LHR Technologies. If your new machine is purchased from a dealer with the Standard Warranty already included, or if you decide you would like to upgrade your warranty selection, you may do so within 90 days of machine purchase. The Warranty Period of these warranties is based on date of machine purchase and will not exceed 2 years or 400 carving hours. The period is for up to the specified time period or amount of carving hours on your machine; whichever comes first. Warranty period will never extend more than 2 years or 400 carving hours.

For example:
Customer purchases a machine on July 1, 2010 with the Minimum (30 day) Warranty ($0.00).
89 days later, the customer decides to purchase an Extended Warranty ($400.00).
The warranty will expire July 1, 2012.

The CarveWright system has been in development since 2001 and was introduced to the market at the end of 2006. Currently, more than 15,000 units have been sold.
The CompuCarves were functionally the same as the earliest CarveWright models.  The last CompuCarve was manufactured in 2008, and since then dozens of changes and upgrades have been made.  CarveWright is the manufacturer and developer’s brand. The CompuCarve’s are upgradable to bring them up to the current standards.
Some of the available accessories (including scanning probe, bits, patterns etc) are available with the Quickchange adapters that will work with the CompuCarve and older CarveWright systems. In order to make use of the complete line of accessories and bits these older model machines will need to be upgraded with the CarveTight Spindle.  You can order all of these from CarveWright by calling 713-473-6572 or going to to the CarveWright Store.
You can request an informational packet by calling 713-473-6572, sending us an e-mail request through the website, or by requesting it via mail.

If you would like to have the video demonstration or free trial software sent to you in CD form, it can be purchased for $7.00.
