Just Added – Woodworking and Foam Cutting Abilities

Offering CNC Machining of Wood, Foam & Plastics


Advance CNC Machining has added a great new machine to bring our clients even more functional capabilities.  Our new Laguna Smartshop II CNC Router gives us the ability to cut wood, foam and other plastics that we wouldn’t be able to cut on the average CNC machine.  In addition to cutting shapes from alternative materials, the Laguna Smartshop can be used for engraving and pocketing work.

Since the Laguna Smartshop II runs industry standard G-Code that can be created from any CAM software package, it integrates seamlessly with all major design software.  It’s heavy-duty welded tubular steel frame (3,500 lbs) ensures stability and precision.  The large, 4×8 work table is complete with a remote dust collector and vacuum control at the operator station.

Now Featured in Production Machining Magazine!

Advance CNC Machining has been featured in an article entitled “Adding Swiss to the Machining Mix” in the December issue of Production Machining Magazine.  We had the opportunity to share our experiences about expanding our operational variety by adding Swiss-type machining capabilities to our horizontal and vertical machining options.


In 2012 Advance CNC Machining’s VP of Manufacturing, Kyle Dunaway, took a trip to IMTS and fell in love with a CNC Swiss-type machine.  Two years and four DMG Mori Swiss machines later, Swiss machining has come to represent 40% of our business.  Advance has committed to continuing to advance this capability by using cutting edge technology and sending our staff out for expert training at the DMG Training Academy in Chicago.

The addition of Swiss machines has allowed Advance CNC Machining to shorten cycle times and increase value for customers who require small or intricate parts with tight tolerances.
