leave a comment »

Co-sponsored by the Cabinet Makers Association will be two talks on “CNC Tips and Tricks.” At the Wood Pro Expo at the Maryland State Fairgrounds near Baltimore October 7 and 8. Leland Thomasett of Taghkanic Woodworking in Pawling, New York, will share techniques for getting the most out of a CNC manufacturing setup.

Attending this trade show is a great opportunity for industry professionals in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern corridor to connect, especially those who don’t attend the industry’s major trade shows like AWFS and IWF.

For more information about the Wood Pro Expo, go to http://www.fdmcdigital.com/Events/WoodProExpo2015/tabid/550/Default.aspx. To register, phone 1.888.600.3220.

Felder sees CNC growth

leave a comment »

The Felder Group, an Austrian woodworking machinery manufacturer, has reported high interest in the panel processing and CNC markets.

“With the market direction clearly being in panel processing, the CNC market is very busy and very successful for us at the moment,” says CEO Ruan du Toit. “I was however very surprised at the level of interest and also actual sales goals achieved with our classical machine line. Customers are still looking for high quality standard machinery that have new technology allowing those machines to still perform fast and very accurately. ”

The company has said that the recent AWFS Fair in Las Vegas was its most successful show to date.

Thermwood adds “CNC Access” to its cut centers

leave a comment »

Since the introduction of Thermwood‘s Cut Ready Cut Center, a cabinetmaking machine that actually builds custom cabinets for you, the company has received requests to allow access to CNC functions of the Cut Center while also preserving the basic Cut Center functionality and simplicity of operation.

To address these requests, Thermwood has added “CNC Access” to its Cut Center machine. This allows for:

  • Operating the system as a CNC router in the traditional manner, running programs generated with virtually any CNC software.
  • Design custom products and add them to the Cut Center libraries. Those items can then be machined by the Cut Center with no further programming.
  • Operating the system solely as a Cut Center with no CNC Programming required.

CNC manufacturer launches machine on Kickstarter

leave a comment »

Next Wave Automation, located in Holland, Ohio, is launching its newest product, CNC Piranha Fx, a CNC routing system which can also print in 3D and laser engrave on Kickstarter. CNC Piranha Fx is the latest – and smallest – of Next Wave’s CNC systems.

Next Wave is offering CNC Piranha Fx on Kickstarter so the company can fund production via pre-orders and then be able to offer the product at a competitive price. Kickstarter funders will have the opportunity to pledge $1 and up to $2,899 for a fully functional, wholly inclusive CNC Piranha Fx. The campaign will run until March 31, 2015.

“Piranha started off as a highly capable CNC machine for woodworkers,” says company founder Tim Owens. “Piranha Fx, with the help of Kickstarter, will be an entirely new generation of machine – a make anything machine that wil let users 3D print, laser engrave and carve, all on one machine.”

Next Wave calls the CNC Piranha Fx the “Make Anything Machine” because it will include three easy to use modules letting users carve, laser engrave and 3D print, all on a single machine, using a simple touch screen and optional digitizer.

Fanuc America launches Certified Education CNC Training Program

leave a comment »

Fanuc America Corp. has introduced the Fanuc Certified Education CNC Training Program for schools in North America, designed for students to graduate with the knowledge and real-world skills to be productive right out-of-the-gate to run a CNC mill or lathe. This directly addresses the need in manufacturing for skilled CNC operators and programmers.

The Fanuc Certified Education CNC Training Program ensures that students learn the skills that industry demands from Fanuc-certified instructors, using a Fanuc-approved curriculum on Fanuc CNC equipment. The curriculum teaches the critical aspects of CNC machine setup, operation and programming using industry equipment and providing sufficient repetition to ensure effective learning. Student certification requires passing both an academic and practical skills test to ensure competence.

“Fanuc is supporting industry’s need for qualified operators and programmers by providing a comprehensive CNC program that offers affordable and effective solutions to education,” says Dean Steadman, CNC education program manager at Fanuc America.

With Fanuc’s program, students will first write, edit and proof programs using 3-D solid model animation in NCGuide software running on a PC. Using a USB memory stick, they then transfer the part program from NCGuide to the CNC on the machine either in the classroom and/or a workshop, and then perform setup and testing. If this is done on a portable Certified Education CNC Training Cart, when they get to the workshop, students are already experienced in setup and operation, so equipment is utilized more effectively, reducing the number of machines required.

The Certified Education CNC Training is available to schools, high schools, trade schools, community colleges and universities with manufacturing diploma programs or STEM curriculum. “Enhancing the existing Fanuc America Robotics training program with the CNC training program really takes our CERT program to the next level,” says Paul Aiello, CERT robotics education director at Fanuc America.

“The success of our country’s economic competitiveness is a real concern, and it’s clear that STEM competencies are important drivers to business performance and success,” added Aiello. “As more companies incorporate robotics and CNCs into their operations, the demand for qualified workers is increasing. That’s a major reason why schools across the country continue to integrate Fanuc training into their STEM curriculums.”
