Solutions for CNC Router Machining Aluminium and Composites and Non-Ferrous ... read more
We specialise in providing high quality bespoke manufacturing solutions: heavy-duty 3 axis to 5 axis machines, designed for high performance, efficiency and high reliability. The range of machine structures for composite and non-ferrous materials are designed to be adapted to provide the optimum manufacturing system, engineered for each individual manufacturing requirements. The typical products are aluminium, Invar or high-strength, lightweight, composite structures. The typical materials are epoxy, polyester, phenolic and polyamide resin systems, reinforced with fiberglass, graphite, Kevlar®, NOMEX, glare or boron.
Another typical group of materials include composite/alloys compounds like CFRP/AL or CFRP/Ti.
There are many aspects to be evaluated carefully to provide a “turnkey solution” to our customers. Including the process where the CNC router machine has to operate, the cube dimensions, the tolerances requested, the type of material and its specifications. Other consequent aspects are the software, fixtures, camping system, chip / dust collection, conveyors, positioning systems, work piece handling and other automation’s. High speed spindles are designed for machining aluminium, profiling and cutting titanium, Invar and other alloys or composite/alloy compounds.
The CNC router systems are similarly specified for efficient and trouble-free high speed manufacturing, and are specified for processing intricate tool paths, with large NC files, at the highest cutting speeds. Software aspects and CNC logic are also carefully analysed to provide the customer with a perfectly integrated solution. Various specific solutions are available to enhance productivity, ease-of-use, safety, reliability and flexibility.
