Materials for CNC Routing…

Metals

Common metals used in turning are Aluminum, Brass, Magnesium, Nickel, Steel, Titanium and Zinc but we are certainly not limited to this list.

Wood

We work with almost any type of wood. From MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard) to Plywood and many more.

Plastics

Our CNC machines can turn a vast array of rigid plastics such as Acetal, Acrylic, Nylon, Polycarbonate, PTFE, PVC and much more. Please get in touch to see if we can help you.

Other Materials

CNC Routing can be performed on most rigid materials, for example stone or glass. If the material you would like to work with has not been listed please do get in touch to see if we can help.

We also provide CNC Milling services…

Not only do we provide a comprehensive range of services within CNC Routing, but we can also carry out CNC Milling too.

DETAIL & ACCURACY

Creating internal or external cuts with precise depths and diameters

TECHNICAL & PRECISE

Using Computer assistance to automate the process

HIGHLY SKILLED TEAM

To oversee the whole process of Turning your project.

CUSTOM DESIGN

We can help you create any number of customised parts and components

How does CNC Routing work?

CNC (Computer Numerical Control) routing is a modern technology where a part can be designed and the lathe’s movements pre-programmed using CAD/CAM processes. Parts may also be manually designed by a programmer. The code can then be uploaded to the CNC machine which will complete the turning process automatically.

The benefits of CNC Lathes, used in turning, are: a high level of accuracy and fantastic reproductions of the product.

CNC Routing Key Features

HIGHLY ACCURATE

The use of cuomputers and relevant programs significantly increases the precision of the lathing process

FANTASTIC REPEATABILITY

Even when looking at the products of highly skilled machinists each one will differ slightly; A CNC machine will produce exact copies of the product

DIGITAL DESIGN

Design software allows the product’s manufacture to be simulated digitally removing the need for prototypes saving time and money!

DIFFERENT BY DESIGN

CNC routing is slightly different to our milling processes also provided in our workshops. Turning uses a pointed tool to create cylindrical cuts either to the outside of a material to create a tube (such as drive shaft) or inside a material to create a tubular cavity.

We use top end computer driven machinery to ensure the best and most accurate results every time.

AUTOMATED PROCESSING

Using computers, we can fully automate the process of turning your project – this means we can be far more accurate and precise than using manual methods to hand turn.  We can be incredibly detailed when it comes to the depth of the cuts made, as well as being able to control the speed and diameter of the cuts. This enables us to have a very high standard of finish for all our projects.

CREATE CUSTOM PARTS

Using our CNC turning machinery, we can easily create custom parts and accessories as well as your own bespoke designs.  Using a range of processes in combination means that we can create virtually anything you can imagine!

CNC ROUTING FAQs

What is Laser Etching?

Laser Etching is the practice of using a laser to engrave an object or material. It can also be described as laser marking, which encompasses a broader category of methods and tools to leave marks on an object. Given it’s versatility, the technique involves no inks or tool bits which make contact with the surface and therefore wear out, giving it a greater advantage compared to traditional methods.

CNC Turning Materials

CNC turning machines suit any hard materials!  From wood, to plastic, to metal and other materials.

How does the CNC Turning machine work?

The CNC turning machine takes direction from a computer, with design software which the design is loaded into.  The computer tells the machine where to move and how to cut.  This allows for fast and accurate turning and intricate design!

Where can CNC turning be used?

CNC technology has been used for decades, with some original concepts as far back as the 1950s!  As CNC machines are fairly expensive to own, many industries choose to send their projects over to agencies such as RENND to process their designs for them.  This works out as a cost effective way to produce.

CNC Routing Service Contact

The CNC Routing Service is a great way to manufacture prototypes and product examples quickly and effectively for low budget options.

If you have a question you want to ask us about our CNC services, perhaps find out more about what we do or if you would like to brief us on your project, then please contact us by either eMailing us direct, calling or by filling out the contact form.

We always enjoy meeting our clients in person, however as our workshops are very busy, to avoid disappointment, we ask that you contact us to arrange a meeting before you visit!
