CNC Routing

descriptionRequest a quote

Our advanced Multicam Apex 3R (3 Axis) CNC routers allow us to provide an extensive range of precision CNC routing services. To summarise, a CNC (computer numerical control) router uses automated computer programming to control and guide a high-speed cutter, ensuring accuracy and efficiency, while simultaneously reducing waste.

More specifically, CNC routers allow us to cut a shape following a CAD (computer-aided design) drawing. CAD software applies a toolpath to a CAD drawing, which instructs the router how to cut the material. The cutting tool navigates the cutting bed around the three axes – X (vertical), Y (horizontal) and Z (depth) – following the toolpath with great precision. This means that CNC routing can manipulate plastics to a very high specification, cutting multiple shapes, sizes and thicknesses.

Why choose us?

With over 30 years’ experience working with plastic products and materials, we have the knowledge and the know-how to deliver your requirements. As a leading stockist of plastic sheeting, we have material options to suit a wide range of projects. Perspex sheets have a variety of uses and are available in many different colours and finishes including clear, coloured, cast, extruded and mirrored. Polycarbonate sheets are available in many different finishes including clear, opal and prismatic. Alternatively, if you prefer to provide your own material, we even offer a free issue service.

Our team of CAD technicians and machine operators are highly skilled and share a wealth of expertise, including laser cutting and engraving. We have a proven ability to offer a wide range of competitive solutions for both businesses and individuals. Our optimisation tools ensure that each job is completed efficiently, in terms of material used and time taken. Whatever the requirement – basic or complex – you can rely on us for precision, quality and value.

Renowned for their accuracy, our Multicam Apex 3R (3 Axis) CNC routers are able to run continuously with reassuring reliability. Parts are produced at extremely low tolerances, with exceptionally high repeatability. They can machine sheet sizes up to 3m x 2m, with a thickness of up to 100mm.

We strive to make our CNC routing services as flexible and as versatile as possible. Our customers can supply their own CAD drawing – the file types we accept are .DWG and .DXF. Alternatively, our experienced CAD technicians can create a CAD drawing from any basic design supplied. Importantly, our multiple machine set-up allows us to offer long runs, short runs, one-off parts and prototypes.

We pride ourselves on our versatility and flexibility. We can accommodate long runs, short runs, one-offs and prototypes. As we are not restricted to set standard sizing, we can cut plastics to any size and shape required. Take a look at our easy to follow production guide video and you’ll see how experienced we really are!
