C.R. Onsrud 146C16C CNC Router Control Upgrade
Router Control Upgrade with Tool Changer and Aggregate Spindle Head for Thomas & Milliken Millwork, Inc.
Thomas and Milliken Millwork, Inc in Michigan has an C.R. Onsrud 146C16C router that they use to create custom molding, doors, windows, and other high end wood products. “Thomas and Milliken allows us designers to stretch the limits of interior details”, says As Angela Goodall from Kitchen Choreography. “Their custom millwork and interior door options are fairly limitless which can make a significant impact to the overall final finish of a home. They also make most of their products locally, so supporting our local economy when you purchase from them.”
Here’s a picture of a custom door they cut on their C.R. Onsrud:
Here, their C.R. Onsrud is cutting a custom piece of molding:
Their ability to design and create custom molding and windows is incredible. Look at an example of their beautiful work below:
After years of operation on the original AMC controller, the machine control system died. Todd Huck, the plant manger of Thomas and Milliken Millwork, contacted MachMotion to explore what upgrading his machine could look like. Todd decided to take over all of the mechanical and electrical part of the upgrade and have MachMotion come in for the final software power up and training.
Todd took pictures of all the motors on his machine and drew up the exact back panel sizes to make sure that the new panels would fit in the original electrical enclosures on the machine. Then the electrical back panels were engineered to be able to run all 6 axes and the spindle motor.
After electrical engineering, the two back panels with all the new servo drives were built.
Everything was setup and tested at MachMotion before shipping it out to Thomas and Milliken Millwork, Inc.
When the C.R. Onsrud upgrade package arrived, Todd’s team installed all of the servo motors wired up the entire machine working with our remote support team.
After the machine was ready, a MachMotion installer arrived to configure the control.
Here you can see the back panels after they were fully installed:
With the software setup, it was time to test the new upgrade.
Thomas and Milliken Millwork had a CNC C.R. Onsrud router that needed repaired. Rather than scrapping or selling the machine, they had the vision to restore the machine and give it a second life. For less cost than buying new router, Thomas and Milliken Millwork made sure that production never stopped, and they could continue serving their customers. Let MachMotion do the same for you as you think about the repair of your CNC machine!
