Agreed, technology is taking over the world. However, in our business, it’s helping us deliver our products like ADA signs faster and at a higher quality to our customers. Here are some of the primary reasons we decided to purchase a CNC Router for in-house manufacturing.
The Benefits of the CNC Router
Shorter Turn-Around Times
With the CNC Router running we experience a 50% increase in product output, allowing us to manufacture 120+ ADA signs a day. Not a bad boost in efficiency. The main reason the CNC Router is faster is because it employs CAD/CAM software that allows us to quickly switch tools and quickly program designs directly into the Router. This reduces error that would require remaking certain components. That faster turn-around means lower costs for the buyer so it is a win-win situation working with a sign company that has a CNC Router.
Higher Quality End Products
With the use of this Router, we have a much higher level of precision (cutting repeatability of 1/1000th of an inch) when manufacturing sign components with digital blueprints that can be fed into the machine. The machine also has a steel frame which eliminates vibration and adds another level of quality. When you are creating a large quantity of signs for a set of buildings, for example, this consistent precision translates into a sharper aesthetic in the end product.
Another benefit is that the CNC Router wraps the functions of several different machines into one. With it, you eliminate the need for a panel saw, spindle moulder, and boring machine.
Overall, CNC Routers have many benefits that translate into higher quality products, shorter turn-around times, lower costs for buyers, and the precision to guarantee consistent quality.
