Five Axis Moving Gantry CNC Machines

The fixed table, moving gantry 5-Axis Northwood CNC Machining center provides a large work envelope of up to 12ft (3658mm) by 12ft with an impressive 72in (1829 mm) Z-Axis stroke. These routers feature optional linear and rotary enclosures to achieve the required tolerances. Northwood provides a low-profile ergonomic table that allows for easy loading of parts for processing.

With the FANUC 310i-B5 CNC, the machine is able to achieve the highest level of accuracy with the most advanced features available in CNC machines today. Tool Center Point (TCP) technology allows for exact interpolation of the center point while in full 5-axis simultaneous machining mode.

Northwood uses the latest in Laser Metrology from Faro to ensure each machine starts with the best possible alignment and is within tolerance. The Faro Laser Xi Tracker is capable of tracking the machines work envelope to ensure uniform accuracy and precision throughout the machining area.
