About MDF Cutting & Sheet Cutting
When you are designing a project that requires the bespoke cutting of MDF and wooden sheets, it’s crucial that you find a good timber merchant to undertake the work.
One that specialises in this field is Booker Timber, an independent timber merchant with extensive expertise in MDF cutting and sheet cutting whether for bulk or small orders. In particular, this well-established timber merchant has invested in state-of-the-art technology for CNC cutting and CNC routing – but what can they do for you?
CNC Routing & CNC Cutting
CNC cutting and routing are techniques that have combine the power of computers with strong sheet cutting machinery to create a precision shape out of plywood, wood, plastic or MDF for the customer. CNC stands for computer numerically controlled.
CNC routing uses a computer-controlled router or milling machine to cut, shape, drill, mill and surface materials. This means the panel can be shaped to the customer’s design, whether they require desk drawers, speakers, grilles or decorative panels.
These processes use extremely large machines, often weighing tonnes, that can perform MDF cutting, plywood cutting, wood or plastic up to several inches thick. At Booker timber, the machinery includes some of the biggest cutting beam saws in the UK, which can handle sheets up to 6m long and up 3.8m wide.
The timber merchant combines the machinery with computer software to produce fast and accurate shapes to suit customers’ requirements, which are often provided as CAD (computer aided design) drawings. A timber merchant can also work from PDFs, or even drawings if the shapes are simple.
Benefits Of CNC Routing & CNC Cutting
CNC routing provides a high degree of accuracy, and the timber merchant will set a blade configuration with CNC routing that ensures the finished products are free of chips. The timber merchant can also use the computer software to ensure that the sheet cutting and MDF cutting are carried out in a way that maximises the use of the materials and reduces waste.
This is important as a way of keeping down the cost of your project – the less wood, plastic, plywood, chipboard or MDF is thrown away after the MDF cutting and sheet cutting, the less you need to buy in the first place.
Many industries – and companies both large and small – use the services of a timber merchant to provide precision-shaped components through the use of precision cutting. For instance, the packaging industry relies on segregation pieces cut to precise shapes by CNC cutting. The aerospace industry often requires sheet cutting into extremely complex shapes which are most easily provided by the use of CNC cutting and CNC routing.
MDF Cutting Needs
On the creative front, MDF cutting and sheet cutting are often required by people creating high-quality prototypes for their own inventions. CNC cutting techniques can also be extremely helpful to artists, joiners and manufacturers of highly-designed furniture.
Needless to say, it requires a well-trained team to make the most of the technology, and a timber merchant like Booker Timber has highly-qualified staff who can make the most of the software that links in with the CNC routing and CNC cutting. Customers are able to ask advice about the MDF cutting and sheet cutting they require, then send their designs and finally see the finished product after it has been through the CNC cutting and CNC routing process.
The products that can go through the cutting process are many and varied, and whichever is chosen will depend on suitability as a solution for the project that the customer requires. CNC cutting and CNC routing are ideal for MDF cutting, and for sheet cutting of materials that include plywood, chipboard, wood and plastic.
Varying thicknesses can also be accommodated – and the size of the CNC beam saws show the power that is required to deal with precision sheet cutting. They can cut sheet up to 90mm thick, and cut within an amazing accuracy of 0.1mm
