New 5-axis CNC machine steps up commercial capability

5 axis CNC

After much anticipation we have now taken delivery of our second CNC machine which is already allowing us to step up our commercial capability.

The new 5-axis machine arrived a few weeks ago and it was all hands on deck to offload and commission it. We couldn’t have done it without the help of the SCM team or the patience and understanding of our landlord and neighbours at Sunny Bank Mills.5 axis CNC

The 5-axis is an impressive piece of kit and it’s been a steep learning curve for us all as we have been getting to know the machine and understand how to get the best out of it and integrate it into our workflow.

We are already feeling the benefit and so are our customers. The 5-axis is increasing our capacity and helping us better meet the demands and aspirations of our customers.

One of the most significant improvements is the fact that we can now rout and drill at any angle. This will help us offer jointing options to business customers who want to include contemporary wooden legs in their designs.

Our first 5-axis commercial project will be ready for delivery in the next couple of weeks and we are looking forward to exploring many more new designs and ideas with its help.

Every project we undertake is exclusive to each of our commercial customers and the 5-axis will allow us to be even more flexible and creative on their behalf.

We are fortunate to work with some extremely innovative furniture companies and by combining their ideas and design experience with our own design and manufacturing expertise we can support their growth and product development.
