The future of CNC Machines is finally here

Uni-Cam SA provides many options for its routers. All of our routers have heavy welded tube steel frames which are extremely rugged and they all use the Mach3 system for operation.

You have an option for the drive motors, either Servo or Closed Loop Stepper. If speed is your main focus, then we specify Servo systems, however if cost is more important then we will look at the Closed Loop Stepper option.

The next option to consider is moving bed or moving gantry. The moving bed is only supplied with ball screw drives, but the moving gantry is supplied as ball screw or rack and pinion. The ball screw system is more accurate and slower the the rack and pinion. Moving gantry machine use less floor space than moving bed types. The advantage of  the moving bed system is simplicity, it only has one drive controlling the Y movement where the moving gantry has two. The next option is the bed type, we supply Vacuum beds, T Slot beds, screw down MDF beds and custom beds.

Another option is manual or automatic tool changing (ATC). If you opt for automatic tool changing, we will customize it to the amount of tools you require. Depending on the materials you are cutting, you may also need a misting sprayer or liquid cooling.

We are a proudly SA company, here to stay! Quite honestly, we challenge you to find another CNC manufacturing company in South Africa that designs and manufactures a machine, to your specs, and then also offers CNC Staff training and to top it all off, is a call away for any emergencies and contingencies? Our CNC Retro-fitting "HIT Squad" comprises of local highly qualified CNC crew.

What are CNC Machines?

CNC routers are computer-controlled machines used for cutting a wide variety of materials. The path of the machine is directed by Computer Numerical Control to give you the precision and accuracy you need from every cut. Whether you have an industrial application, a home or starter business, or even a hobby that requires specific cuts, CNC routers are the perfect solution to give you the best possible finished product.

At Uni-Cam SA, we believe industrial strength and customer service are the two most important elements of a CNC router. Our machines are designed to industrial specifications so you can use them as much as you need, all day, every day. We build our machines so you as the owner/operator can go to the machine, turn it on, and go to work any time, no squaring or alignment required. Every Uni-Cam SA CNC router is built to last.
