Newport News CNC Cutting Service

CNC Cutting

Our in house design and drafting team creates 3D solid models from customer sketches and drawings, or works from customer supplied CAD files (digital drawings).  We generate CNC code for machining or cutting on one of our plasma/torch tables or our 6kw laser table.  Our plasma/torch tables can handle material sizes up to 140” X 280” X 12”. The flying optics laser has 2 shuttle beds measuring 120” X 315” that can cut or etch flat plate up to 1” thick.  It can also travel up to 11” vertically for cutting and etching structural material or assemblies.
