3 Axis Nesting
Improve production efficiency and your final finish with tooling designed for 3 axis nesting CNC machines.
Tooling Solutions for 3 Axis CNC Machines
Technology has become a key player in the timber manufacturing industry, and 3 axis nesting CNC machines are a popular solution for workshops of all sizes. Sophisticated software and high precision machinery allows each piece of stock to produce greater yields and more complex components. Take the work out of cutting and routing timber with the automation CNC machines can offer when paired with sophisticated tooling solutions.
Panel Tools supplies a wide range of CNC routers bits, cutters and tooling that helps businesses realise the full potential of their machinery. Partnering with suppliers who prioritise developing tools with high safety and quality standards, we have access to innovative products that can improve the efficiency and accuracy of your equipment. Ideal for joinery, kitchen and cabinet makers, shopfitters, sign makers and flat panel production, our CNC tooling can help you expand your manufacturing capacity and craft quality results your customers will love.
Improve Quality & Performance With Our CNC Tooling Solutions
Nesting CNC machines have been widely adopted in cabinetry due to their efficiency and accuracy in batch-size-one applications. A key focus for modern manufacturers is achieving the maximum uptime and speed on these machines as they can be the limiting factor on the output of the operation. Advanced machinery have high travel speeds but the interface between the machine and the end product is the tool.
When producing profiles on the CNC there are three main objectives: consistency, efficiency, and a high-quality end-product. Depending on the profile and the capabilities of the machine, Panel Tools can offer tailored solutions in solid carbide, braised tip, replaceable tip and diamond to work towards each of these objectives. In particular, we can assist with high performance solutions for producing square and bevelled shaker doors.
Drilling is one of the most time consuming processes on the CNC and often it is the most overlooked when looking to improve efficiencies. We can offer high performance drills to increase plunge rates or multi-boring aggregates to increase your drilling capacity. Aside from standard drilling, we also have solutions for drilling at great depths, profiled drills for producing plugs and profiled drills which produce chamfers or rebates.
Surfacing is the process of flattening a large area by removing a small amount of material across the face of a component. This removes any discrepancies in thickness and provides a clean surface. Generally a surfacing tool needs to cover a lot of area and the result must be perfectly flat and smooth. Replaceable tips and diamond tips are common options which range from smaller and more cost effective solutions up to larger high efficiency solutions.
Carving or contouring is a common application for prototyping or contract machining where the design of the component is subject to change and/or highly complex. When you cannot justify an investment in a specific profiling tool, ball nose tools and variations thereof may be used to produce almost any shape. Carving with ball nose tools can be extremely time consuming, there are dozens of options which can be investigated to achieve the detail, finish quality and time frame required.
CNC Aggregates come in many shapes and sizes for different applications. Examples include angle heads, swivel heads, multi-spindle heads, chiselling units, sanding units, floating units, oscillating knife units, polishing units and many more. Aggregates are just like another tool in your CNC’s tool bank but, additionally to the HSK63F or ISO30 taper connection, the aggregate also mounts onto the motor spindle via a torque arm and an anti-rotation ring or c-axis. This is specific to your machine configuration and keeps the body of the aggregate stationary relative to the spindle. The rotation of the spindle is transferred through the aggregates gear systems to translate into different directions, speeds and torques.
