We can CNC machine composite parts (monolithic or sandwich boards) including carbon and glass fibre to precise measurements using our 3 and 5-axis CNC machines. We can also machine other materials such as wood and aluminium. We have two CNC machines plus a smaller engraving machine.
Our HAAS VF4 is fitted with a Reinsure OMP40 probe for accurate job setting and measuring of tool length. The HAAS VF4 is a 3-axis machine but can be converted to a 4-axis machine using our specially designed bed. Our Thermwood 5-axis CNC has a larger bed area than the HAAS VF4 and is suitable for machining multiple part nests.
We have various methods for mechanically or vacuum clamping components to the machine bed and can produce jigs and fixtures as required to ensure part stability during machining. We can inspect CNC machined components and produce 100% inspection reports using our FARO arm with CAM 2.0 software.
