American Made CNC Routers and Machining Centers for Wood Industry

Northwood builds custom CNC equipment that is built on a modular design that is capable of adapting to any industry.  The 3-Axis CNC Machining Centers have been processing wood in various forms for many different industries for over 25 years.  Northwood engineers each machine base to be capable of handling any variation of tooling that is required by the application.

Northwood has a long history of providing equipment to the wood industry including furniture (solid wood and upholstered), custom windows and doors, cabinets, exhibits and store fixtures, and many other types of wood projects.

 

Below is a listing of some industries that you will find companies have had great success using Northwood CNC Machining Centers.  The technology and support provided by Northwood is known throughout many industries to be second to none.  Northwood's modular engineering design process has enabled custom solutions for high-volume part processing in many of these industries.  

Northwood has not only sold machines, but also solutions to these industries that increased production capacities and efficiencies.

Furniture

Northwood Machine 3-Axis CNC Machining Centers have been used in the wood furniture industry for many years.  Northwood's commitment to providing reliable equipment has provided this industry with years of success.

Northwood's CNC Machining Centers are used to produce Solid Wood Furniture and Upholstered Furniture (Upholstery) and work in a demanding High-Volume Furniture Manufacturing environment.  High-Speed CNC Machining centers have the ability to produce parts faster.

The TA - 3-Axis CNC Machining Centers with Roller Hold Down, can cut multiples parts or stacked plywood efficiently.  These machining centers with Northwood's Automatic Unload Material Handling can work together to process up to 100 sheets in a single shift.  The Roller Hold Down system allows the multiple high-speed routers to process the part nest quickly without worrying about the parts moving or shifting.

Northwood can install up to four (4) spindles, multiple drills and line drill units onto one tooling plate allowing for mirrored part production.  Integrated dust collection minimizes the airborne contamination and makes loading and unloading parts easier with less dust or chips.

All Northwood Machining Centers feature the best 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.

Furniture Machining Centers

Roller Hold Down- Machine part nests with smaller parts when vacuum flow-through is not enough!

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

Window and Door

Wood Cut DoorsNorthwood Machine works in the Commercial Casework, Custom Windows and Doors, MDF Doors, and Architectural Millwork industries.  With capabilities like full 4 or 5 axes simultaneous carving, Northwood CNC machining centers can do more than other CNC machines.  The rigid and reliable framework built by Northwood, ensure the flexibility to machine in even the heaviest of applications.

Northwood supplies multiple spindle machines, dedicated horizontal drill units, dedicated C-Axis machines for any type of custom aggregate including adjustable angled aggregates.  These tooling options allow Northwood to perform all of the necessary steps to finish custom wood parts.

With options like 40HP vacuum, flexible vacuum matrix tables and overhead lasers for quick pod and part location, Northwood supplies not just the machine, but an entire production system.

Northwood provides machines with dynamic tool carousels that travel along with the machine spindle to decrease tool change time.  The Automatic Tool Changers with up to 20 stations, provide enough room for custom door cope and stick profiles.  The flexibility of the matrix vacuum tables allow for machining doors quickly and efficiently.

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.  For a full listing of standard features and available tooling options - visit Northwood Products Technologies.
