CNC Routering & CNC Knife Cutting
CAD (computer-aided design) software is used by Silwood Marine to create precision drawings or technical illustrations.
Our CAD software can be used to create two-dimensional (2-D) drawings.
This cutting process enables high volumes of materials to be cut square and very accurate utilising special blades for cutting high volumes of sheets in one stack / loading.
We have optional misting / lubricating capability to reduce heat when cutting deep stacks of up to 100mm in height and a scoring blade to minimise the risk of bottom sheet chipping.
Materials are moved on air floatation tables to avoid surface damage. Large stacks are turned around from rip cut to cross cut by a revolving table.
Our state of the art CNC cutting equipment ensures reliable and repeatable accuracy to cut any shape or edge profile on individual sheets utilising most types of CAD files direct to the machine.
The sheet cutting technology cuts plastic or aluminium using a bespoke tooling through a 7 part automatic tool changer that gives the ultimate capability to machine complex designs or profiles.
This machine also has a CNC controlled knife cutting option for thin sheets / films of 1mm and below.
