Special Message

Thermwood Corporation primarily manufactures a broad line of machine tools called CNC routers. A CNC router is used to cut, trim and shape a wide variety of materials including wood, plastic, composites, foam, honeycomb core and non-ferrous metals into either flat or three-dimensional shaped products. These fast accurate machines are used by a wide variety of manufacturing industries including woodworking, plastic, aerospace, automotive, boating, medical and defense. Thermwood builds a wide selection of systems in both 3 and 5 axis configurations, from low cost packages for small shops to aerospace packages capable of machining parts up to 60 foot long in a single setup.
