We offer the full package with our CNC Routers: including delivery, installation and training. You’ll be ready to hit the ground running and start using your new CNC Router as soon as our engineers leave, with up to 3 years warranty we offer full support for our machines via our in-house technical support department and expert engineering team.

Piranha Pro

Our Piranha Pro range can be customised with an upgradeable quick release spindle, camera recognition and our oscillating knife system.

Spartan CNC

Our most affordable range, what they lack in features they make up for in price the only choice for those needing a quality machine on a budget.

Piranha ATC

British designed body with NEW carousel auto tool change. Our machines are designed with the end user in mind, with our Pro range features.

Spartan ATC

A highly capable CNC router range, comes with plenty of power under the hood with it’s air cooled spindle & servo drive system.
We have 2 main manual tool change ranges:

What is a Manual Tool Change CNC router? It is just as it sounds, the operator will intervene every time there is a different tool required in the processing of a job. Although this only takes around 1 minute or so it could be a very time-consuming task if you rely on a machine to do high output. We can however, on certain Piranha machines, add in a quick release spindle that requires a quick press of a button to release the tool holder and change tools.

Spartan CNC Router

One of the best entry-level routers on the market, providing you with a very capable machine at a highly affordable price tag. Our Spartan CNC routers all come with 4.5kw Spindles with plenty of power for most applications. As standard our Spartan range comes with 3 phase electrics, however, we can also configure our machines in single phase if you require it.

Piranha Pro CNC Router

Our most popular router range of 2016, now back, bigger, badder and more capable than ever. Additional to processing standard materials such as woods, acrylic, solid surface materials, our Piranha range will also process soft metals such as aluminium and brass. Superb machines at an unrivalled price, 3 year warranty and much more…

Finance Options Available

Check out our finance packages, spread the cost over 2 – 5 years, making purchasing a machine much more affordable by splitting the cost into manageable monthly payments.

Piranha CNC Router

Customise your ATC CNC router

In addition to our ATC standard feature set you can also upgrade to machines with oscillating knife technology.

Why use an oscillating blade on a router? Increase your CNC machines capabilities by adding an oscillating knife and you will be able to process thinner materials such as cardboard, paper, printed media, thin rubber etc whilst also having a full CNC solution. Not only that you can also configure with an optical recognition system to automatically detect registration marks on pre printed substrates to cut them out perfectly. Our Piranha ATC OS is the perfect tool for any signmaker who prints their own panels and would like to contour cut graphics.

What is an ‘Auto Tool Change’ CNC Router?

What is meant by automatic tool change? When your project has more than one type of cut or tool type you would normally be required to pause the job and manually change tools, however, with one of our Automatic Tool Change machines, the operator has no need to involve themselves in this process directly and the CNC router will do this independently. Each machine comes with either an 8 tool position linear rack at the back of the machine or an 8 position carousel cartridge system on the gantry.

Auto Tool Change is not the only addition you get for choosing this range, each ATC comes with a high performance HSD 9.0kw Spindle, pro servo drives for unrivalled accuracy and repeatability, German Vacuum Pumps and Syntec controllers.

Superb performance doesn’t have to be out of budget, our Piranha ATC routers are highly affordable when compared with the competition.

Software

We include Vectric VCarve Pro as standard with all of our machines relating to routing.

VCarve Pro and VCarve Desktop provide a powerful but intuitive software solution for cutting parts on a CNC Router. There are tools for 2D design and calculation of 2D and 2.5D toolpaths and along with the ability to import and toolpath a single 3D model (STL, OBJ, SKP etc). There is also support to import multiple Vectric Clip Art 3D models (V3M) to create advanced 3D assemblies.

The software can import 2D designs from other programs but also provides a full set of drawing and editing tools. The toolpath options cover all typical 2D routing operations such as Profiling, Pocketing, Auto-Inlays and Drilling as well as 2.5D strategies such as V-Carving, Prism Carving, Moulding Toolpaths, Fluting and even a decorative texturing strategy. For 3D you can Rough and Finish the model and there are options to project 2D and 2.5D toolpaths onto the 3D surface. Each toolpath includes appropriate options to customise the settings and provide a high level of control for different types of operation. In addition all toolpaths can be previewed to show just how the part will look when it’s actually cut, this allows instant feedback to allow toolpaths to be further optimised.
