From laser cutters to CNC routers, we have you covered.

Laser Cutting Machines

Laser cutters for schools are one of Opus CNC’s speciality. The Oculus range of laser cutters has been installed into schools and universities throughout the UK in many departments. Opus CNC is one of the leading suppliers of laser cutters for schools in the UK.

Designs are brought to life with the easy to use Oculus laser range for many budding designers and engineers. They are ideal for cutting and engraving many media intricately and with precision. Cylindrical items can also be etched by using the optional rotary attachment.

We take safety very seriously, and on every laser cutter, we have an automatic safety shut-off function. This function stops the laser immediately should any little wandering fingers try and open the cover.

CNC Routers

CNC routers are popular amongst universities to produce 2D and 3D objects from wood, plastics, foam and many more materials. Universities and schools across the world have produced many prototypes using their CNC machines.

The Olympus range and our Pegasus CNC routers are popular in architecture, woodworking, physics and engineering, for projects and research and development.

Students can also use the CNC machine comfortably, and this is due to the extensive training we provide, as well as the machines being easy to use. Machine and software training consists of outlining the full capabilities and limitations that are achievable and offered to students and teachers. We will also guide you through the necessary housekeeping to ensure the machine continues to run optimally.

Extraction

Laser Cutters:

Each Oculus laser cutter comes with an extraction hose similar to a tumble dryer hose. The hose is then placed outside an external door or window when in operation. We can also provide standalone BOFA filtration units should this not be an option. The filtration unit connects to the Oculus laser and then extracts directly. Therefore, removing the need to extract externally.

CNC Routers:

All of our CNC routers include a standalone extraction system that is hard-wired into the CNC machine by one of our trained engineers. All units are three-phase as standard, but we can supply single-phase systems when necessary.

CNC routers are popular amongst universities to produce 2D and 3D objects out of wood, plastics, foam and many more materials. Universities and schools across the world have produced many prototypes using their CNC machines. The Olympus and Pegasus CNC routers are popular in departments such as architecture, woodworking, physics and engineering, for projects and also research and development.

Students can use the CNC machine comfortably, and this is due to the extensive training we provide. Machine and software training consists of outlining the full capabilities and limitations which, are achievable and is offered to students and teachers. We will also guide you through the necessary house-keeping to ensure the machine continues to run optimally.

Safety Features

The Olympus and Pegasus range of CNC woodworking machines are available in many sizes. The most popular size being 8’x4′; both CNC ranges can include safety features such as light beam barriers. The barriers ensure automatic shut-off, and this will create an invisible guard around the CNC router. Furthermore, we can apply pressure mats on the ground next to the CNC router, and when pressed, they will also cease the operation of the machine.
