CNC Routing

CNC Machining

What is CNC routing and is it right for my project?

CNC routing is a method of cutting flat sheet materials like MDF, Aluminium, Composite materials, Acrylics and many more materials to specific shapes using a large computer controlled router and a cutting program generated from a CAD file ( Vector format file). The parts can be cut as many times as you like all with the same accuracy. CNC routing unlike laser and waterjet has depth of cut control so we can:

  • Cut Through
  • Rebate
  • Drill
  • Chamfer
  • Round-over
  • Pocket Profile
  • Engrave
  • Machine

Can I engrave all types of material?

The CNC machine can engrave most materials, but the laser works extremely well with all types of woods, from maple to exotic hardwoods. Each displays a different quality when engraved.

Here is a list of a few of the compatible materials you can use with the Rhinoworks CNC Routers:
