RFR 30-20-3-Vac T-Slot-Router

(Router-Flat Rack & Pinion- 3000x2000x300- Vacuum & T-Slot-Rotary 4th axis)

Our custom range of machines come with a huge range of options. This machine is a Rack and Pinion driven router, that has a Tufnol vacuum table WITH T-Slots. This allows you to fasten down almost anything to the bed. Some of our clients have asked us to add a Rotary 4th Axis (‘lathe’) . This has a maximum torque of 700 Nm, drives a 160mm chuck with a throat of 40mm. The frame is heavy steel expertly welded before the linear rail grooves are machined into the steel, as well as the top of the machine being machined to within 20 microns. This principal results in a system that will last give many years of solid performance. All our machines are driven by Servo motors and are controlled by Mach 4. Our electric boxes are positive pressure to keep them cool and to stop dust ingress. In short, 3 CNC machines in one!

Standard Sizes

  • 3050 x 2050
  • 2450 x 1250
  • 1250 x 1250

Other options

  • We also supply Tangential knife/Oscillating knife capability in addition to Spindle capability on Gantry

RFR 24-12-2-VAC

(Router-Flat-Rack & Pinion-2450x1250x200-Vacuum Bed)

Our standard range of machines come with various options. This is an example of our Rack & Pinion driven router that has a Tufnol vacuum table with a 7.5kW side channel vacuum blower. All our Z axis movements utilise Ball-screws to attain the highest accuracy. The frame is expertly welded and manufactured with heavy steel - before the linear rail grooves are machined and embedded into the steel frame, this ensures up to 20-micron accuracy. The result of this manufacturing system is that it offers years of hassle-free, solid and accurate performance. All our machines are driven by Servo motors and are controlled by Mach 4. Our electric boxes have positive pressure to keep them cool and to stop dust ingress.

  • 4050 x 2050
  • 3050 x 2050
  • 2450 x 1250

Basic options

  • Bed: Vacuum Bed, Steel T-Slot, MDF Top

RFB 18-12-3-TSlot-Rotary

(Router-Flat-Ballscrew-1850x1250x300-Steel T-Slot-Rotary 4th axis)

Our custom range of machines come with a huge range of options. This machine is a Ball Screw driven router, that sports a Heavy Steel T-Slot bed. This allows you to fasten down almost anything to the bed, including our removable vacuum tables. Some of our clients have asked us to add a Rotary 4th Axis, (see pic) . This has a maximum torque of 300 Nm, drives a 160mm chuck with a throat of 40mm. The frame is heavy steel expertly welded before the linear rail grooves are machined into the steel, as well as the top of the machine being machined to within 20 microns. This principal results in a system that will last give many years of solid performance. All our machines are driven by Servo motors and are controlled by Mach 4. Our electric boxes are positive pressure to keep them cool and to stop dust ingress.

  • 3050 x 2050
  • 2450 x 1250
  • 1250 x 1250

Basic options

  • Bed: Add on Vacuum Bed
  • Spindle: Manual Tool Change, Auto Tool Changer

FFR 2400-12-12

(Fast Wire-Flat-Rack & Pinion-2600x1350x1350)

Our Fast Wire and/or Hot Wire machines are super-tough and well-respected. These machines are driven by rack and pinion. The low bed allows for easy loading of product. The frame is solid steel (not aluminium) and is expertly welded before the linear rail grooves are machined into it. This principal results in a system that will last give many years of solid performance. Our standard models are driven by Servo motors and are controlled by Mach 4. Our electric boxes are positive pressure to keep then cool and to stop dust ingress.

Standard Sizes

  • 3200 x 2150 x 2150
  • 2600 x 1350 x 1350

Basic options

  • Bed: Add on Vacuum Bed
  • Drives: Servo Motors
  • Fast Wire: Rotary Table
  • Hotwire: Multi Wire

Free Standing Console

(Star Trek anyone?)

This futuristic control panel is utilised on all our machines and is designed to reduce clutter around the controls. On smaller machines this would also act as the electrical box. The 17” touch screen allows for easy control of your machine. The stainless-steel keyboard is waterproof and dust proof and includes a trackball!

Basic options

  • Buttons: As required by the machine
  • Keyboard: Standard Keyboard
