Procter Cast Stone’s 5 Axis CNC Machine Improves Lead Time and Quality

Procter Cast Stone have recently started to work with a 5-Axis CNC Machine. The cutting edge technology enables us to use our design expertise to develop an unparalleled range of complex shapes and design details, to make virtually any architectural stone profile. We design and supply a wide range of high quality cast stone with no compromise to aesthetic appeal.

What is a 5-Axis CNC Machine?

Computer Numerical Control (CNC) is the method for automating the control of machine tools via the use of software that gives the tool pre-programmed sequencing commands. At Procter Cast Stone, we use the CNC machine to outline and edge-cut cast stone into different shapes. The-5-Axis CNC machine can move on five different axis simultaneously, creating detailed design of very complex parts. The use of a CNC machine provides a greater production capacity that is ideal for creating large production quantities that require consistent, accurate and complex cuts.
