If your industry is listed then we guarantee we’ll be able to help you. Otherwise, talk to our technical sales team about your application to find out what ART can offer you

All ART CNC Routers are highly capable of cutting auminum plate and sheet efficiently.

Click HERE to see some case studies using ART CNC Routers for Aluminium Fabrication  

  • All Purpose Router:
    If you are looking for a great all purpose CNC Router that can also cut timber and plastics alongside aluminium then we would suggest the XR Router from ART. This machine has many options and accessories to make your CNC jobs so easy.

  • Heavy Duty Milling:
    Production cnc machining in thick aluminium plate or high-volume applications is the ideal application for the RT Router/Milling Machine from ART.
    Milling results in a smooth machined edge and gives a lot of flexibility with through cutting, pocketing, engraving, chamfering, drilling, thread tapping and much more. The RT Router/Mill is a magnificent machine that blurs the lines between traditional CNC Routers and large format 3 axis milling machines. This machine was designed specifically for extreme applications that require rigidity, high speed, safety and precision.

  • High Definition CNC Plasma:
    High Definition CNC Plasma cutting machines are highly capable when cutting aluminium plate. They are cost effective as they only use compressed air as the cutting gas for cutting aluminium. CNC Plasma is ideal when the focus is on speed of cutting. The edge finish is coarser than that produced by routing or milling but may suit applications where full depth cutting at high speed is required.

  • Metal Cutting Fibre Laser:
    CNC Fibre Laser machines are now able to cut aluminium sheet and plate very fast and accurately. Laser cutting is appropriate for applications that require through-cutting only as a laser cannot effectively do partial depth cutting. Laser can however do etching/marking of text and graphics for part numbers, fold lines etc. The entry cost of fibre laser has lowered significantly in recent years.

Following are some suggested machines to suit different segments of the industry:

  • CNC Routers
    Components for aluminium bull-bars and other automotive accessories are usually cut using ART CNC Routers as they are highly capable and efficient in cutting thick material. As well as shape cutting, ART CNC Routers are able to engrave, drill, thread tap and much more. This ensures a ready to weld component every time.
    CNC Routers can easily machine large moulds for Drape Moulding or Vacuum Forming
    CNC Routers are also used extensively for cutting poly-carbonate, acrylic and fibreglass materials that make up components such as headlight protectors, wind deflectors, Ute Tub lids and almost any plastic or resin based material.
