Our CNC machines are among the most popular tools in the space. Our current machines are not suitable for machining tough materials such as steel and cast iron and are limited in their ability to machine non-ferrous metals. While our current Bridgeport milling machine can work with tough materials rather well, it is a manual machine which makes intricate parts tedious and sometimes impossible to produce.
Aging electronics often makes machine tools obsolete before their often become undesirable for industrial users
The CNC Milling Machine will be located near the Bridgeport milling machine, as they will be able to share tooling and this location is convenient to 3 phase power.
