For IWF 2022, Thermwood Corporation, an innovator in the design and manufacture of American Made 3 and 5 Axis CNC Routers, is proud to demonstrate three systems. We’ll have our all new AutoProcessor 43 510, our powerful Cut Ready Cut Center and our heavy-duty Model 45 510 machining on site.
The AutoProcessor 43 5'x10' is an all-new complete, nested-based, CNC routing system for machining cabinet boxes, custom furniture and basically any nested type of sheet product.
It is fully automatic from labeling and positioning of the sheets, to machining and off-loading the machined parts.
With each cycle, the machine simultaneously and automatically:
- Labels each part area on the sheet
- Moves and automatically positions the sheet on the table
- Machines the material while labeling the next sheet
- Simultaneously off-loads the finished parts and reloads the next sheet
- Continuously repeats the process
Thermwood will also be demonstrating the award-winning Cut Ready Cut Center. This powerful system helps you quickly and easily create most products a cabinet shop would want to make without a CNC programmer (cabinets, furniture, doors, drawers, moldings, stair stringers and much more). Just tell it what you want to make via a simple touch-screen interface, and it makes it. Or, you can operate it as a traditional CNC router.
Most people can operate it with little or no training or guidance. It is complete, fully contained with all the ancillary equipment smoothly integrated into a package that almost runs itself.
Jody Wilmes (Cut Ready Product Manager) helps you understand the differences between the Cut Center and a regular CNC Router.
Jody provides an in-depth look at what it takes to successfully operate each machine, and lists some of the additional expenses and things to consider when shopping for an automated solution.
We will also be machining solid wood and aluminum and plywood sheet stock on the Model 45.
The heavy-duty Model 45 is designed for a variety of functions, including the machining of rotary operations when equipped with our optional C-Axis. This expands the capability of this already useful machine to include volutes, carvings, chair parts, stair components and much more.
