CNC Processing - TimberLab

Product Description

TimberLab brings to New Zealand the first large scale 5 axis CNC Bridge for the automated processing of solid wood elements.

TimberLab – Producing creativity with precision, this new facility enables TimberLab to produce precision detailing to an even better and more consistent degree than was possible previously.

TimberLab’s Weinmann WMP 240 CNC Bridge unit enables the complete and detailed profiling of Glulam, LVL, CLT, Solid timber components up to 35m long and 4m wide.

This acquisition enables a wide range of processing options from accurately forming predetermined shapes to precision cutting, drilling, rebating, grooving, routing and beveling, all to the most demanding tolerances.

Designers now have the opportunity to develop distinctive timber structures incorporating timber profiles, connections, details and designs that have not previously been available in New Zealand.

Straight from the draftsman’s CAD drawings, TimberLab utilises the internationally recognised specialist timber software – CADWORK and LIGNOCAM – to send finished details to the Weinmann CNC processing machine. LIGNOCAM’s unique simulation package allows the machinist to see the exact operations to be performed on an element.
