CNC and Manufacturing
Stagecraft has been at the forefront of the design, manufacture and installation of retail display systems for over 30 years. Based in rural Mid Wales, the company began life working with garden centres and later developed into the much wider retail sector, working with a variety of businesses, from large retail chains to small independent retailers throughout the UK.
As the business has grown so too has its experience, skills and capacity. The company now offer their expert design, manufacturing and CNC cutting services to a variety of business sectors and private individuals, catering for both large and small scale runs.
We aim for customer satisfaction by:
Our CNC is a 3 axis Morbidelli panel machine. It’s capable of machining boards as large as 3660 x 1500 and our maximum cutting depth is 70mm. Our CNC also has self-loading and unloading bed which means we can unload the machine quickly and maximise machine time.
We offer 2 levels of service, which are:
1) Rapid cutting service – you know the technology, you want to supply the cut files and receive your components quickly.
2) Design Development service – You have an idea but need assistance making your concept reality (read below for more information).
CNC routing is a method of cutting flat sheet materials like MDF into specific shapes using a large computer controlled router and a cutting program generated from a CAD file. The parts can be cut as many times as you like all with the same accuracy. CNC routing unlike laser and waterjet has depth of cut control so we can:
Cut through - Rebate - Drill - Chamber - Round-over - Pocket - Profile - Engrave
The CNC can do the above to;
- A large variety of woods such as Ply (Birch ply, marine ply, laminated ply etc), MDF, laminated MDF and solid wood like pine, oak and walnut.
- Soft metal such as sheet or plate aluminium.
- Other sheet materials are also suitable, if you have a specific material in mind and want to know whether it is appropriate please get in touch.
