ACP Composites, Inc., a leading manufacturer of high quality composite solutions, expands their machining capabilities with the addition of a second CNC Router to deliver precise, accurate machined components for the medical, aerospace and defense industries.

With a proven record of high-precision, high-quality machining products, ACP selected CR Onsrud to supply them with a second CNC Router which features a moving Gantry Design with rack style automatic tool changer. CNC Routers are computer controlled machines for cutting various materials such as composites, plastics and foams. Tool paths are controlled via computer numerical control (CNC) and can produce one-off components just as effectively as repeated identical production.

With the addition of the new 4 axis, 5ft. x 12ft. CNC Router to ACP’s current 3 axis, 5ft. x 10ft. CNC Router, ACP’s finishing capacities now allow for increased workloads and shorter lead times. Justin Sparr, Executive Vice President, shares, “We are excited to bring on an additional CNC Router. The new addition allows us to bring on new business while maintaining our current work load. The ability to run multiple jobs concurrently opens the door to larger productions as well as quick turnarounds for smaller projects.”

ACP Composites has continued to invest in their facilities by offering advanced equipment options and state of the art facility features. ACP plans to have the newest CNC Router installed and fully operational by the end of July.
