CNC MACHINING, PATTERNS & JIGS

HOME > OUR CAPABILITIESCNC MACHINING, PATTERNS & JIGS

At Advanced Composite Solutions, we can provide various machining services such as machining production mould tools, patterns, production jigs and part/component machining using our on-site CNC machines and can process a range of materials including:

sesanti patterns

We have recently invested in upgrading our 5-Axis Thermwood CNC machine, allowing us to offer 5-axis machining to even higher tolerances than previously achievable. At our factory we have the following CNC machines;

machining wood

INSPECTION OF MACHINED COMPONENTS

We are able to provide a full 100% inspection report using our FARO Fusion arm to show conformance of the machined pattern, part or mould against the original CAD. We can measure accurately to +/- 0.02mm.  For small components, we are able to to precisely check machine components with our Baty R14 Shadow Graph and supply conformance-to-drawing reports if required.

PRODUCTION MOULD TOOLING

If you require high-volume production tooling, we can machine Aluminium tooling using our 3-axis CNC machine with a machining envelope 1270mm x 508mm x 635mm down to an accuracy of 0.02mm. We are able to advise on the most suitable approach with regards to mould assembly.

 

PATTERNS

We are able to machine patterns using our Thermwood 5-axis or HAAS 3+1 axis machine. We are able to design and manufacture patterns in house including calculating the scaling factor required for Carbon Fibre manufacture. .

From Epoxy block master patterns we are able to fabricate OEM grade A-surface Carbon Fibre production mould tools for volume manufacture. Examples of tools created from include rally car light housings, air box plenums, cambelt covers and racing bucket seats.
