Northwood Routers and Machining Centers are used in the aerospace manufacturing industry with metal removal capacity for aluminum sheets.  Parts are machined from single aluminum sheets up to 1/4" (0.25") thick consisting of the following alloys:

7075-T6 6061-T4 6061-O
2024-T3 7075-O 2024-O
6013-T4    

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.
