Our CNC machine installation is complete!

Our CNC machine is a 5 axis machining centre which allows high speed cutting of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT). It has 2 working beds each capable of taking a 12m long panel. This allows 1 panel to be machined on one bed while on the other bed the next panel is being loaded ready.

The versatility of the 5 axis means complex angles can be easily machined with high accuracy and consistency.

The CNC is programmed offline using specialist software that can simulate the machining fully and maximise efficient usage of the CLT panels reducing errors and waste.
