CNC Routing FAQs

CNC routing is a manufacturing process that involves the use of computer numerical control (CNC) machines to cut and shape materials like wood, plastic, metal, foam, and composites with high levels of precision.

Natural woods can be machined on CNC routers when coupled with suitable workholding methods. Sheets goods such as MDF, MRMDF, Tricoya, Birch Plywood, Far Eastern Plywood, Marine Plywood, WISA Spruce and OSB can all be machined with ease on CNC routers due to its ability to hold sheet goods using a vacuum pump.

Plastics such as PET, Polycarbonate, HDPE, Acrylic, uPVC foam, solid surface such as Corian and machinery plastics such as PE UltraPlus can all be machined using a CNC router.

Some softer metals like aluminium and brass are able to be machined on a CNC router.

CNC routers are incredibly versatile tools that find applications across various industries due to their ability in efficiency in cutting, carving, and shaping materials. Some of the industries that benefit significantly from using CNC routers includes carpentry and joinery, sign makers, plastic fabrication, foam packaging, food and packaging machinery, prop builders, visual merchandising and design agencies, boat builders and theatre/scenic set builds.

CNC routers operate with high precision, ensuring consistent and accurate cuts or engravings according to programmed designs. They can work on a wide range of materials, including wood, plastics, metals, foam, and composites, making them versatile for different applications. They can execute intricate and complex designs that might be difficult or impossible to achieve manually, allowing for creativity and customization. CNC routers are typically faster than manual methods once programmed, increasing production efficiency and reducing lead times. They offer excellent repeatability, ensuring that multiple identical pieces can be produced consistently. With precise cutting, CNC routers can minimize material wastage, leading to cost savings. CNC routers are deal for both prototyping and mass production.

Yes, our CNC routing services are flexible and can accommodate projects of all sizes, from small and intricate parts to larger and more complex components. With a 3x2m bed equipped with a vacuum pump and other additions such as automatic tool changing, we’re able to handle large sheet goods, or tiny components with minimal setup change.

Absolutely! Our dedicated design team is ready to work with your existing files (DXF, DWG, AI, PDF) or assist in the development of a suitable file ready to be used for programming.

Turnaround times can vary depending on project complexity, material availability, and order quantity. We value the importance of a rapid turnaround, ensuring quick and efficient production without compromising quality, enabling us to meet demands of our clients.

Yes, CNC routers are capable of performing 3D machining. They’re able to execute precise tool paths and can carve or mill materials in three dimensions. With the right software and tooling, CNC routers can create intricate 3D shapes, sculptures, prototypes, and other complex objects by cutting away material based on a 3D model or design. The ability to perform 3D machining largely depends on the machine’s capabilities, the software used for generating tool paths, and the operator’s expertise in setting up the machining process.
