Equipment

The CTP Lab has a vast range of skills and techniques that can be used to prototype. To achieve that, we have inumerous machines, power tools and hand tools.

The big advantage of having such abilities is to create a prototype much faster than before and since everyone is sharing their experience, the learning curve is faster than ever.

Here we can show the main machines and some power tools we have.

  • Universal Laser Systems

Column: 2

This is other adition to our CTP Lab, a large format CNC, capable of cutting pieces up to 1220 X 2400 mm and total heigth of 70 mm.

It’s capable of cutting all kinds of material, from soft foam, to wood and even some aluminium using a Kress 1050-FME motor as a cutting head.

  • Haas Super Minimill 2

Since not all the work can be done by machines, we have some power tools to help you do some manual cutting. In the CTP Lab we have the best in the market, Festools power tools, starting with a small hand drill, but also different types of saws, jigsaw, router, sander, hand grinder, polisher and also a pillar drill, making your prototyping must efective and fast.

 

  • Electronics
