Metal Fabrication

Metal fabrication made easy with an AXYZ CNC router


When it comes to non-ferrous metal fabrication, AXYZ offer an unbeatable range of high-performance routing and engraving machines suited to a wide variety of applications. These include the profiling of control panels, cutting of 2D and 3D parts for fabrications and full 3D milling for the creation of prototypes, models and moulds.

Mould makers, aerospace component manufacturers, automotive component manufacturers, display manufacturers and a wide range of other organisations benefit from our industrial range of CNC routers.

AXYZ CNC routers deliver substantial advantages over most other CNC processes for machining metals. Key advantages include:

  1. Large format process areas: Standard production formats from 4’ x 4’ to 8’ x 24′
  2. Full 2D and 3D machining capability: For true surface moulds, as well as pocketing and step cutting, processes that laser, plasma and waterjet systems cannot perform.
  3. High RPM routing spindles: For excellent edge quality with smaller diameter cutting tools. Routers produce clean edge finishes that have not been thermally altered and can easily be welded without extensive manual rework.
  4. Simple user operation: Intuitive controls for the machine operator make this one of the easiest machines to operate.
  5. Cost advantage: Alternative CNC technologies such as waterjet and laser cutting are dramatically more expensive capital investments with higher ongoing operational costs.
