WELCOME TO NORTHWOOD

AMERICAN MADE MACHINERY

Northwood has always chosen to build a machine based upon our customer’s application. We have never changed a customer’s application to fit our machine.  From small specialized shops to large aerospace manufacturer, Northwood will design and deliver the right machine for you and your business.

NORTHWOOD UNDERSTANDS THE STONE COUNTERTOP INDUSTRY

At Northwood, we get it!

stone/fabcenter.jpgNorthwood provides CNC equipment to automate the stone fabrication process.  Northwood not only provides Northwood Stone Machine - Countertop Fabrication reliable equipment but also industry knowledge and experience on how to run an efficient all-digital stone shop.  This includes utilizing equipment such as digital templating, online job scheduling and inventory systems, part nesting via hi-resolution photos to achieve grain matching, barcode technology for easy operation, simple graphical machine interface, easy-to-use CAD/CAM software to import directly from digital templates, and many other software solutions.  This means that Northwood not only delivers machinery, but they deliver the results necessary to move fabricators forward.

CNC Machining Centers and SawJETs are used to produce countertops made of 2cm and 3cm granite, quartz, marble engineered stones, and other natural stones.  Northwood has machinery to provide CNC high-torque SmartSaw with PowerTilt for mitered cuts/edges as well as high-pressure CNC waterjet equipment.  In fact, the Northwood SawJET combines the two technologies and makes cutting any nest that is setup for yield or beautiful part matching an easy job.  The Legendary Northwood 138 Extreme Duty Spindle (EDS) CNC Router is capable of performing edging, profiling, and machining of countertops using any available CNC cutting tool.  The EDS router is also capable of extremely high-torque at very low RPMs making it the ONLY CNC Stone Router in the industry capable of preforming CNC texturing, brushing, honing, leathering, and polishing of different stones.  For Northwood Stoneworks Technologies visit our Stoneworks CNC Machine Technologies or our SawJet CNC Technologies.

THE NORTHWOOD COUNTERBALANCE SYSTEM ENSURES LONG MACHINE LIFE

Counterbalance System

Northwood CNC machines are built to stand the test of time. One of the ways this is achieved is by using sophisticated counterbalance systems to take up the weight of the tool plate on the vertical axis.

The tool plate holds a ton of weight. Without the counterbalance system the servo motor must lift all of the weight. On a FabCenter, that includes the spindle and the saw motor which are attached to the main tooling plate. That is a some serious weight to move up and down.

Look around. Our competitors don't recommend oscillation of the tools, nor do they encourage 3D carving with their routers.  There is a reason. They don't have a system to take the load off the tool plate.

Our machines are built the right way...The Northwood Way!
