Some of our customers prefer to not disclose the CNC aspects of their business as there can be a lot of USP around their application. Below is a representative sample of applications where our machines are currently used. There is a mixture of specific examples where customers are happy to disclose their applications – and applications with general reference so as not to disclose USP.
Moving Picture hire are using one of our routers to make foam cases and fixtures for Camera mounting equipment. The need for a CNC router came from frustrations with cost and lead times associated with outsourced CNC work.
The guys at IMGENIUS in University College London are making an MRI compatible Incubator device. All the aluminum parts you see in the image have been made on a 106512 model machine. The guys are also using the machine to make PCB’s for the device electronics.

Falconex Mould Prototyping
Falconex are prototyping mould halves for injection moulding of their circuit board encapsulation. Falconex are now making their own test moulds. the need for flexibility and reducing the cost of the development time were the main motivators for this project. As well as the moulds, Falconex are using the machine to make the holes in enclosures for cable glands and are milling switches to mount their custom inductive elements into the switch fixture.
The guys at LET are now making their internal parts for wind turbines in house. Previous to the router installation the guys were outsourcing parts to be made or making them using time consuming manual conventional techniques in house.
We have a number of customers who are using the machines in label and engraving applications.
Furniture and Cabinet Making
We have a number of customers using the machines to Make furniture. The focus is on lowering production costs, providing greater design flexibility, lowering lead times and allowing furniture making guys to provide a higher level of customisation of their products.
Smaller customisable items
We have a number of customers manufacturing custom designs out of timbers and plastics for a number of different product ranges. As discussed above – some of these customer prefer to keep their USP around the machine private.
