New CNC cutter/plotter

In mid 2012, we designed and built a 6m x 2m CNC cutter/plotter for precise, fast and efficient cutting of our materials. This machine allows us to cut hundreds of shapes with minimal waste on the 6m bed in minutes and was completed just in time for a large aerospace contract.
 
Although we designed that machine to cut and mark (pen, permanent marker or pencil) primarily pre impregnated composite laminates, we have the ability to cut structural foam cores, wood veneer and intend to fit an ultrasonic cutter later this year. There are also thoughts to incorporate a plastic printer extruder head to compliment our two 'smaller' plastic printers and give us the ability to print large objects to compliment our pattern and mould manufacturing. video
