CNC Profile Cutting
Focal has recently invested in a CNC plasma cutter to our every growing arsenal of tools. This allows use to cut all of our own sheet and plate in house up to 16mm thick and with a 1500x3000 bed, we can also cut over size sheets.
We invested in this machine as there isn't really anyone local that has one and for us, having to get parts laser cut in Invercargill or Dunedin just didn't really sit well. As well as utilizing the machine for our own projects, we purchased the machine for contract cutting for other local businesses and also direct clients.
By having a profile cutting machine in Queenstown means that clients have somebody local to talk to about designs and can pop into the workshop. This also reduces the cost of freight and risk of damage in transit.
We can either draw up designs for you or, we are more than happy for you to supply us with your cut ready DXF files. With most common materials and thicknesses in steel, stainless steel, aluminium, copper and brass in stock- a quick turn around on your parts is also our biggest aim.
While CNC plasma may not be as accurate as waterjet or laser, it is more than good enough for the vast majority of applications. We constantly use the machine every day for our own projects and it does not reduce the quality of our products.
