CNC 3 & 5 Axis

The 3 and 5-axis technology makes the precision cutting of complex 3D plastic components a simple operation.

On the 5 axis, the machine head can rotate to almost any angle, reducing lead times for components with non standard angle detail without the need to have special tools manufactured.

  • Extensive machining capabilities
  • Fast auto-changing head
  • Large bed sizes – 3500mm x 1500mm
  • Component passage of 330mm
  • Spindle speed 20,000 rpm
  • Rapid speeds of up to 75 meters per minute
  • Machining speeds of up to 12 meters per minute based on tooling
  • 26 tool stations
  • Material probes for ensuring precise measuring

3 Axis

  • Up to 24,000 RPM spindle speed with no vibration allowing precise machining.
  • Rapid X, Y axes up to 60m/min reduces time machining to save costs
  • Up to 20 micron machining tolerance.
  • NESTING feature reducing waste.
  • Having 10 tooling stations reduces the time taken to stop the machine and change tools.
  • Can create any angle along a 2d geometry using angled cutters.
  • Bespoke tooling can be applied to 2d geometries creating various profiles on the workpiece.
  • The machine moves across 3 axis XYZ with rapid movements of up to 20,000mm/s giving us quicker machining times.
  • Can fit up to 3m x 2.1m sheets on the machine bed with a maximum height of 100mm.
  • Can create multiple shapes using ball nose, dovetail, angle, radius and flat cutters.
  • Can machine on all faces of a component using fixtures and jigs to secure work pieces precisely.
  • Using the latest CAD/CAM software allows us to run solid simulations of the programs preventing collisions and errors.

5 Axis

  • Capable of machining 5 out of 6 faces of a cube in just one set up.
  • Up to 20,000 RPM spindle speed with no vibration allowing precise machining.
  • Twin vacuum suction pumps gives us the ability to machine through components onto MDF. This saves us time finishing off components when they come off the machine.
  • Using the latest CAD/CAM software allows us to run solid simulations of the programs preventing collisions and errors.
  • Having 28 tooling stations reduces the time taken to stop the machine and change tools.
  • Can fit up to 3.65m x 1.56m on the machine bed with a maximum height of 150mm.
  • Rapid movements of up to 40,000mm/s giving us quicker machining times.
  • The 5 axis has 2 additional axis B and C allowing the head to rotate 360 degrees around the workpiece.
