Thermwood CNC routers are in action all across Australia and New Zealand with more and more being used in all industries from cabinet making to thermoforming to boat building.
Flecknoe has over 10 years experience in supplying and installing Thermwood 3 and 5 Axis CNC Routers throughout Australasia including New Zealand, Singapore, China, and Australia. Flecknoe has factory-trained specialists available to support any installation in any market.
Thermwood manufactures three-axis, four-axis, and five-axis CNC routers. They built the first CNC router in the world, and since then have spent millions of dollars developing the latest CNC router technology. Thermwood offers over thirty features and capabilities not available from anyone else. The Thermwood five axis CNC offers full five-axis simultaneous motion, five-axis tool length compensation, constant tip speed, and built-in CAD path generating capability.
Thermwood offers complete systems for every aspect of woodworking from nested based manufacturing of cabinets, closets, and other products made from sheet stock to a wide variety of architectural millwork applications, store fixtures and furniture. Thermwood’s unique approach results in systems that are highly productive, extremely easy to use, yet are among the lowest cost.
Thermwood machines use engineered structures designed using the most advanced CAD/CAM and structural analysis. All weldments are fully stress relieved and the final machine is laser calibrated to assure accuracy, including three-dimensional volumetric compensation, a feature not available from other systems in this market.
Five axis CNC Routers have become the accepted method of trimming three dimensional plastic parts. CNC Routers increase productivity, reduce cost and improve quality. The only draw back has been that a decent machine has been expensive... until now!
Thermwood specializes in three-axis and five-axis CNC routers. They built the first CNC router in the world and have since spent millions of dollars developing the latest CNC router technology. Thermwood offers over thirty features and capabilities not available from anyone else. The five axis offers full five-axis simultaneous motion, five-axis tool length compensation, constant tip speed and built-in CAD path generating capability.
Thermwood offers two basic types of five-axis CNC routers. The moving table fixed gantry machines Models 67and 90 or the fixed table table moving gantry machine Model 70.
Programs developed offline with a CAD/CAM system are only as good as the ability of the router to execute them. The Model 67 is laser calibrated to assure the highest level of position accuracy. Laser alignment and calibration is generally reserved for multimillion dollar aerospace machines.
