One of the tools available to a skilled Ogle model maker is Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machining which produces parts from a 3D CAD file.

With extensive CNC capabilities, including a large frame Belotti (producing parts up to 4m x 2.6m x 1.3m) which enables the model making team to produce large components in much shorter times than previously possible. The work horse Correa and Bridgeport machines offer further capacity. Plus, recently added, a high speed Fanuc machine which produces complex parts and assemblies, fast, in real materials, that include, but are not limited to:

  • ABS
  • PEEK
  • Polycarbonate
  • Perspex
  • Model board
  • Nylon
  • Aluminium

Getting the best out of a CNC requires skill and knowledge, the Ogle team has considerable toolmaking and model making experience. They are not operators but have the skill to utilize the best machine for the part together with an eye for material selection and the ability to split larger projects into components.

One of the biggest advantages for our customers is the ability to machine using a production material. It makes the entire prototyping process more reliable, and ensures that any further testing of the part is as accurate as possible.

Ergonomic models

Rapid CNC machining is extremely successful for ergonomic models in the following sectors:

  • Aerospace
  • Automotive
  • Medical

Production parts

Ogle has been providing the Auto sport industry with race ready parts for a decade using a range of exotic materials and in proven short and guaranteed time scales.

Patterns and moulds

With a wealth of experience gained in pattern making apprentices in the automotive industry the Ogle team will discuss your exact requirements before offering a suitable CNC machined solution.

The CNC process is perfect for producing high-detailed parts within a short timeframe. At Ogle, this is a very cost-effective method of producing complex parts and reducing lead times. Standard delivery of this type of part would be within seven to 14 working days.
