Other Industries

Aluminum MachiningNorthwood has sold CNC Machining Centers to many other industries.  Northwood doesn't just build CNC Machining Centers that are made for only one application, but instead building a solid modular machining center that can accommodate many different tooling configurations.  This allows for Northwood to build a machine that has the correct tooling configuration for any industry.  Below are a few more industries that Northwood has had great success in.  If you can't find your industry on this site, Contact Northwood Machine and talk to a Product Manager who specializes in unique applications.

 

Enclosures

FRP Fiberglass Reinforced polymer enclosure CNC machiningNorthwood CNC Machining Centers are used in machining different plastics such as Fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP), Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP), Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) enclosures. Enclosures for electrical can be freestanding or wall-mounted.

Fiberglass Reinforced Polyester (FRP) enclosures are used for many applications such as Leisure (market places, camping sites, amusement parks), fuel stations, car washes and construction yards; Industrial: Shipyards, mining, automotive, paper and pulp, food and beverage, petro-chemical, transformers, heavy industry and system monitoring; Utilities: Waste management, communications, water treatment plants, cable television (CATV), energy distribution (electricity, gas, water), traffic management, traffic signaling systems, railways, public transportation and public lighting.

The ability of Northwood to understand the manufacturing application and design an efficient piece of machinery is unlike other manufacturers.  Northwood does not limit their machinery to certain makes and models, but instead has a core base product that can be adapted to fit any industry.

All Northwood Machining Centers feature the best standard components available in the machine tool industry.  FANUC servo motors and motion controls, high-precisions ground ballscrews and linear guides are at the core of every Northwood CNC.

Machining Centers

Three Axis Single or Dual Table - Vacuum flow-through, part-location stops, 20-position tool changers, and multi-head machines are all available.
