As demands for higher quality, tighter tolerances, and increased cost efficiency continue to grow in the composites industry, many manufacturers have turned to computer numerical control (CNC) equipment for the bulk of their production requirements. CNC equipment like routers, mills, and lathes offer fast setup times and increased accuracy over conventional methods that typically require specialized molds or tooling.
At Atlas Fibre, we feature a comprehensive selection of CNC equipment to meet your fabrication needs, including CNC router machines. Whether you need us to finish a workpiece or create a product from start to finish, we have all your requirements covered. Our team has years of experience helping customers develop practical designs with lighter weights, higher reliability, and longer service lives.
CNC routing is a subtractive manufacturing process that uses a computer-controlled routing machine with numerous tools across multiple axes. These machines use beds to mount the workpiece, making the equipment ideal for producing flat parts.
Despite the fast setup times, CNC routers are less beneficial for large-volume production runs than other types of CNC equipment we feature, such as mills, lathes, and Swiss CNC machines. However, routers outshine other machines for prototyping, small-batch lots, and product development runs. CNC router machines are ideal for small-lot drilling, cutting blanks, finishing injection molded parts, and trimming pressure-formed components.
CNC routing offers numerous benefits, including:
