CNC Router

Our facility is equipped with a large format overhead gantry 5-axis CNC router. The router has a large working envelope of 20ft x 12ft x 5ft and is capable of milling precision parts. We needed a way to instill higher quality and efficiency into our radome development process. Through in-house milling, we now have the ability to create custom plugs and parts used in the development of our radomes.
