What Is CNC Routing?

CNC stands for Computer Numerical Control.  A CNC machine is like a router, a woodworking tool with a very fast-spinning cutter, but which is controlled by a computer in 3 axis.  This allows the router to cut designs created in a computer, such as signs, logos, pictures, various component parts—just about anything that can be drawn up on a computer can be cut by this machine into various materials.  Wood is one obvious material choice, but also soft metals, plastics, and sign foams can be carved.

Once cut, many different surface applications can be done to enhance the product, such as painting, gold or silver leafing , staining, and surface finishing.

Multiple copies of products are very simple to produce and one or a hundred signs, parts, or pictures are as easy as telling the machine how many to cut.  The cost of setting up the software is a one time coast, whether you need one or a thousand of the same product.

Knight Toolworks’ machine is capable of cutting materials up to 4 feet wide by 8 feet long and 6 inches tall.  Special effects can also be produced by this machine, mimicking handwork, such as textured backgrounds.

Imagine the impact of a 3-D sign carved with “V” grooved letters with perhaps some fine gilding compared to a flat printed sign at the entrance to your business.

Woodworkers and cabinet makers who occasionally have large tabletops or glue-ups which are too big to flatten practically by hand or with their own machinery can benefit from Knight Toolworks’ CNC machine, which can create perfectly flat surfaces for them.

Manufacturers who need specialty parts that they cannot produce themselves can utilize Knight Toolworks’ CNC services, eliminating the capital expenditure required for new equipment that may not be used again.  Knight Toolworks can also produce unique gifts for valued employees or imminent retirees.
