Machine Structure

Our ATC CNC Router machines are manufactured from high quality steel which has been treated to withstand even the toughest of workshops.  All frame work and gantry have been precisely engineered to create a robust and solid base for each machine.

Tool Changing  

Our Auto Tool Change System swaps out tools on the fly when required by your tool path, lets say you are processing 2 types of cuts that require different tools, the software will automatically tell the CNC router to locate the correct tool from the rack (which holds up-to 8 tools).  Once it has located the tool, your job will carry on until it completes.  This saves you precious manufacturing time which in turn helps increase margins.

Vaccum Bed

Powerful, high performance vacuum beds are a very important feature of any CNC router.  Piranha ATC’s come with vacuum systems offering exceptional suction.

Our vacuum beds are easily zoned off using our simple to use zoning system.


One of the most important parts of any CNC router is the spindle system.  We only use Italian HSD Spindles on our ATC CNC Router machines, with unrivaled speed and performance you know you have made the right choice.  Our ATC’s come complete with 9.0Kw rated units.

Drive System

We use state of the art brushless AC servo motors to drive our Piranha ATC Machines.  This paired with our helical rack and pinion technology deliver unrivaled accuracy and repeat ability.

Auto Tool Height Sensor

No more manually having to set your tool heights, with our ATC cnc router machines this is all done for you.

Safety Features Push stops as standard, light bar safety functions are available to protect the operator should you require them. We can also supply pressure sensitive safety mats for our customers if required as an added upgrade. Safety is paramount.

After recently deciding to expanding my carpentry business, I decided to invest in a CNC router.

I contacted Radecal Machine Sales and found their sales team to be very knowledgeable on the products and operation of their machines.

After considering my options and with the help from the sales team, I chose a Piranha CNC 3020. The machine arrived and was installed within the allowed time. The Technicians were very good and explained all aspects of the install.

The training modules supplied with the V Carve software are easy to use and helped with gaining confidence on programming, the support from the techicians with the software was great and added to learning from the modules.

I was shown the operations of the machine and trained by the technicians in all aspects. When they had finished I felt confident to use my new CNC.

Carpentry Plus

The CNC machine is great, everything is running smooth!  Installation was great and arranging it all went swift and smoothly.  10/10 service!

Jordan Maughan

NuLite Ltd

Sale and installation were fast and efficient. Training was informative and effective. We no longer outsource our CNC machining requirements and are able to respond faster and more effectively to project requirements.

B Scenic Construction

The service from Radecal Machines was spot on.  The training was very good; I had never used a CNC before in my life so it was quite daunting but I was put at ease with the quality of instruction I received.

Huge 3 Year Warranty

When buying a large piece of machinery like a CNC router, you need to ensure you’re covered for any eventuality.

Our Piranha CNC Router range is covered by a better than industry standard 3 year warranty.  Most other CNC Router suppliers have you covered for only 12 months.  All CNC router purchases also qualify for FREE Lifetime technical support via telephone and email.

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.

Looking for an Manual Tool Change CNC Router?

We have 2 main manual tool change ranges:

Spartan CNC Router

One of the best entry level routers on the market, providing potential customers with a very capable machine at a highly affordable price tag.  


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…


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.
