We offer a professional trade CNC routing service here at Group101, ask your suppliers to deliver your material directly to our HQ and we will happily prepare, cut and send your newly routed parts back to you via your chosen courier method. We will even send you back the sheet off cuts. 

With our extensive experience in the sign making industry we see ourselves best placed to deal with a number of routing projects, feel free to call us to discuss any aspect of your next CNC routing project.  

 



"Our CNC routing service isn't just for the signage industry - Our state of the art camera operated 3m x 2m Tekcel EXR machine with its 17 piece automatic tool changer will handle a range of complex projects and challenging materials - Call us today to discuss any aspect of our trade CNC cutting service"


 

How the Process Works;

 

  1. Create your artwork based on the size of sheet you require, leave a 15mm gap between letters, logo and shapes to ensure cutting tool does not overlap cuts. Save your artwork in ai, eps or dxf file format.
     
  2. We can supply most material from stock ( Call us for prices ) most of our regular trade clients prefer to have their material delivered directly to us and we then send this back by your chosen courier methods. (Call us for courier shipping options)
     
  3. Complex cutting may be charged at an additional premium; you will be notified prior to any works starting

FAQ's

Technical Information


 

How does our trade CNC service work?

 

1. Artwork

 

It's as simple as A,B,C well maybe not that simple. Create your artwork as seen below, allowing a minimum gap of 15mm between shapes or letters. Save the file as either a "ai", "eps" or a "dxf" please ensure that all text used is outlines or converted to curve/paths. You can than send your file to us via email or via our FTP upload. Please only send us files for processing once you have completed an order. 

 

2. Material 

 

Couldn't be any easier - have your suppliers deliver your material directly to Group101. We do keep a small selection on material on the shelf at all times so we can supply the material to you. Please check material pricing with us when placing an order. We can also arrange to have material collected from your location and delivered directly to us. (A chargeable service). Many of our trade clients do request we flood coat sheets of Foam PVC with colour vinyl prior to routing thus being a cost effective alternative to coloured Acrylics. (Price on application)

 

3. Routing / Cutting

 

Not the easiest of tasks but this is where our trained staff come into play. With our state of the art of Tekcel CNC router with 17 tool multi changer and a workable area of 3050mm x 2050mm the Tekcel is superb at utilising every piece of your material which create a lot less waste thus maximising your profits. 

 

4. Packaging & Delivery 

 

Once we have completed your job we then pack the goods up and send these back to you, we also send you back any material that is left over. (Additional costs apply)
