The OMNI CNC machines have been designed to reduce material waste, eliminate costly errors and increase your overall shop productivity.

If you ever get an opportunity to visit an industrial woodworking company the factory floor is the place to be. It is exciting and the correct word usage here is mesmerizing. Your gaze is transfixed as sheets of plywood are loaded at one end and in a continuous stream cabinet parts flow out from the other end. The surprise is that the cabinet parts are ready for assembly as the entire process of joinery cuts, holes for inserting shelving pins and pilots for mounting screws is complete. Some of the panels even have grooving engraved – the decorative patterns are stunning in its variety and the speed of operation leaves you with astonishment.

Wood Working CNC Router - The Exciting Appeal and Applications of Woodworking CNC Routers

Welcome to the world of woodworking CNC Routers. The magic of CAD (computer assisted design) converts design into the lingua franca of the CNC. The machine understands G-code and M-code language. The CAD software provides the toolpath program which the cutters interpret accurately. The software produces the g-coded file which contains instructions for cutting, drilling, grooving and edging. All you need is to load the wood and the rest as the cliché goes is history.

Mr. Suresh from New Zealand is just one among the thousands of DIY hobbyists who has turned his passion for woodworking into a viable business. He recently purchased the CNC industry’s workhorse the OMNI 1325 model. OMNI CNC Technology Co., Ltd from China produces this CNC machine. The popularity of this CNC Router is gauged by its presence in almost 70 countries. Mr. Suresh’s cabinet designs are a triumph of 2d and 3d engraving which can be seen in the video ( The downstream work of the engraved kitchen cabinetry is plain assembly simplifying the process. The result of accurate machining enables Mr. Suresh to produces artistic and creative masterpieces.

Woodworking CNC routers differ from metal working machines as wood is not subject to forces of load and vibration that are seen in metal. The woodworking routers are capable of spinning faster (the spindles that hold the cutting tool) at speeds in excess of 18000 rpm and even up to 24000 rpm. This enables faster machining speeds; speeds of 30 meters per minute are nothing new.
