Our Onsrud CNC Router machines are great at cutting thin sheet, but their heavy build also makes them ideal for machining thicker pieces of aluminum. An advantage of using the router table is that it does not have the machining travel limits inherent in a more typical Vertical Milling Center, such as our HAAS VF4 machine.
This means we are able to machine large parts in one operation, eliminating errors caused by part sensing and greatly reducing setup times. Below is video showing one of our Onsrud routers cutting a new welding jig for our shop out of a ¾” thick sheet of 6061-T6 Aluminum. After deburring, the part is ready to have components installed and be put into use as a robotic welding jig!
