What is CNC Routing?
CNC Routing is a powerful overhead router moving under computer control to cut and profile sheet materials laid on a bed surface.
How is the material held?
There are two options here 1. Is a powerful vacuum pump which sucks the material the bed surface preventing movement.2. Is the use of mechanical clamps to hold the material in place
Whats the advantage of computer controlled routers?
Accuracy and repeatability for a start .The router has a tolerance of +- 0.05mm so multiple components will be exactly the same.
How does the router know what directions to move?
Its all drawn on computer aided design (CAD) software. The shape to be cut is laid out in the software and tool paths are applied by the user, this is then sent to the router which tells it how to move.
What about last minute modification to the design?
Changes to the oringal design can normally be made quickly and easily, prototypes can be produced for approval prior to cutting batch runs.
How do we get are parts cut?
most of our clients send us EPS or AI files of the components they want machined the main file types we use are(A.I, EPS, PLT, DXF, DWG) it does not matter really what file type you send us we have a lot of software that can access your drawings.
