CNC routers, or computer numerically controlled routers, are production machines used to cut out or rout shapes in various shapes from wood, metals, plastics, foam and a variety of other materials. CNC routers can mechanically cut out complex shapes much faster and with better accuracy, repeatability and precision than by a human operator. CNC routers can greatly help industries such as cabinet making, signs, plastics fabrication and many others to take on large jobs that need precise parts quickly and accurately.
CNC routers come in standard table sizes ranging from 2’ x 2’ to 5’ x 10,’ and some manufacturers will build custom machines up to 12’ x 16’ or larger. CNC routers have been available for a long time, but have increased in popularity due to their increased speed and software advances.
