Innovations to improve productivity

Before we sell a machine, we complete a needs analysis to determine the best configuration and software combination to suit your needs, including table size, z-axis height, cutting tool options and holddown system. We have manufactured a wide range of custom machines, such as:

  • Router/plasma tables for school classrooms
  • 5x10 tool changing routers for the radiant floor industry
  • Router tables that used pneumatic systems with rollers to secure alucabond
  • A carpet cutting machine that used an ultra-sonic knife to cut intricate details
  • A door cutting machine with a touch screen through which the operator could customize the doors with window cutout, peephole and mail slot
  • An 8” 4th axis router with a 22’ Z for the model building industry
