New, Larger, Faster and More Economical CNC Machine

7th March 2017

As part of our ongoing commitment to service and the needs of our customers, Peerless has invested and installed a new large bed Plastic CNC Milling Machine into our head office at Thetford, Norfolk.

The new CNC Router is a Tekcel EXR featuring a 3 x 2 metre bed with a full width vacuum hold down for optimum position and precision engineering. Peerless is able to mill at a maximum speed of 600mm per second and speed depends on the thickness of material – though we are pleased to announce that we are able to machine plastic up to 40mm in thickness. Whilst the machine is so large, we are still able to mill intricate parts and can now offer more economical cutting programmes for maximum yields per sheet with the larger milling bed.

A 17 seat toolset is attached which includes auto-changing without manual intervention. This allows for even quicker times when processing multiple passes, including combining cutting and finishing such as an edged chamfer. There are also a selection of polishing tools to give a polished edge finish should they be required.

  • Polycarbonate
  • Acrylic sheet
  • PET
  • PETg
  • SAN

As well as the new CNC Milling Machine, we are also able to offer a full suite of CNC Programming to turn your designs or drawing into full fledged machining plans.
