What do CNC Machines Do?

Once you understand how a CNC machine works, you’ll find that they can be utilized with machines and tools of all kinds.

CNC machines, or Computer Numerical Control machines, make use of computer systems and software programs to automate machinery, including quite complex and advanced operations. As such, a CNC cutting machine (also called a burn table) makes use of CNC processes to cut materials of all kinds including steel, aluminum and wood.

Hornet Cutting Systems has three core CNC cutting processes: CNC plasma cutting machines, CNC oxy-fuel cutting machines and CNC waterjet cutting machines.

CNC Plasma Cutting

CNC plasma cutting machine

Our CNC plasma cutting machines cut up to 3″ mild steel, 4″ stainless steel and 3″ aluminum and are capable of producing both straight and bevel cuts. Our line of CNC plasma cutters are built to cut metal plates as well as metal pipes.

CNC Oxy-fuel Cutting

CNC oxy-fuel Cutting

Our CNC oxy-fuel cutting machines cut through mild steel, stainless steel as well as aluminum. Our line of CNC oxy-fuel cutting machines are capable of cutting metal plates as well as pipes.

CNC Waterjet Cutting

CNC waterjet cutting

Our waterjet cutting machine works with a highly pressurized jet of water, or a mixture of water and an abrasive. Our CNC waterjet cutting machine can cut materials ranging from wood to steel and produces no smoke.
