cnc water jet cutting
-Uses a strong jet stream of water mixed with abrasive to cut materials
-Cuts metals, alloys, composites, stone/granite/quartz/marble/ceramics,
glass, plastics, woods, tile, plastics, fiberglass, foam, rubbers and more
-Max cutting area: 55" x 100"
cnc laser cutting & engraving
-Uses a 150 W Co2 laser to cut & engrave materials
-Cuts acrylics, woods, leathers, fabrics, carpet/rug/felt, paper/cardboard, glass, plastic and fiber glass
-Max material envelope: 4' x 8' x 6" Deep
Spinning, cutting & drilling tools move in 3 directions (X, Y, Z) to mill, engrave and shape plastics & metals
We can use 24 different tools on our milling center
Max material envelope: 50" w x 20" x 25"
cnc router milling & engraving
Uses drilling/milling tools to remove material and carve paths/shapes
We can mill acrylics, woods, plastics, foam and non-ferrous metals like copper/aluminum/brass
Max material envelope: 5' x 10' x 5" Deep
cnc 3d printer
Uses resin to build material up into desired shape
3D parts are built layer by layer with a laser to solidify the liquid as layers grow
We can improve the resolution and structure prior to printing
Please ask us more about the resins you can use
Max material envelope: 5.7" x 5.7" x 7.25"
cnc robotic arm
Uses a robotic arm with exchangeable drilling/milling "bits" to carve paths/shapes/forms
Because it can travel along 5 axes it is the ideal machine for large-scale sculpture out of foam & unique organic forms
We can carve foam and wood with our robot
Max material envelope: 10' Diameter
