Frequently asked questions

When we provide an integrated robotic system (also called a robotic cell), we typically install a robot and associated controller, CAD/CAM software, a spindle and tool(s) with a tool holder station, a bespoke control cabinet that runs spindle motion and all required safety functions, and application-specific ancillary equipment  which could include 7th and 8th axis facilities, rotary tables, linear tracks, force sensors, and vision systems, etc.  

Where specialised action is required, in the form of grippers, manipulators, etc., we have our own inhouse design team who can meet your specific needs. Our team is passionate about pushing the boundaries of what robots can do and like nothing more than a challenge. After installation, we train relevant staff, upskilling workers to help them adapt.

On average our robotic milling systems cost about 50% less than traditional CNC machines and are a flexible, cost effective way to increase productivity. As each of our systems is designed to the bespoke requirements of our clients, costs vary depending upon final specification.

We will meet with you to understand your requirement, if you want us to take it to the next stage we will charge a nominal flat rate fee to undertake a feasibility study and undertake some initial R&D. Thereafter we will provide you with a full specification and quote for the proposed fully fledged solution.

Depending upon the application, robot manufacturers state a repeatability of +/-0.06mm.

For machining applications, we often see a tolerance of approx +/-0.2mm depending upon application.


Each solution differs in specification, research and design and therefore timeframes will vary.

We would advise that our 6-stage process takes on average 12 weeks depending on application and covers the following:

  • Consultation
  • Initial R&D proposal
  • Design
  • Build and test
  • Installation
  • Training

It is necessary for all our clients to be educated and empowered enough to take their robotic machining cell and utilise it to its full capabilities.

Doing this can sometimes be a daunting task. However, with the correct training and support from CNCR as standard, the programming and operation will become second nature.

The help, guidance and training from CNCR will enable your team to perform all required programming onsite.

It is important that these skills are acquired not just for the immediate project goals but also for the long term programming and running of new parts as they develop

Our annual service and maintenance contract offers complete peace of mind and our expert team are on hand to ensure that any queries your team have, are answered promptly.

We will schedule regular service and monitor the system to ensure that preventative maintenance is undertaken to avoid any unexpected errors and delays.

The Multi3 system is specifically designed for smaller manufacturers who don’t want a bespoke system or who do minimum batch sizes. These robotic cells are pre-programmed to do one singular function – such as trimming or drilling – and are ready to use. Simply plug in and operate.

Compact, operator friendly and easy to integrate with existing workshop processes. This is a modular and scalable solution, multiple Multi3 can be joined together to create a mini production line, so as your business or project grows then this automated system can expand.

What they say

Absolutely spot on, a nice small company to work with that are interested in what they do and what customers are doing rather than just the profit, providing good advice, straight to the point. Our robotic system does in several hours what it would have taken 2 days to accomplish through manual labour.

Plastics 4 Performance
This new robotic system allows our team to create 3D objects using the most advanced technology available to artists. Our team can use this robot along with the scanners to machine and 3D cut works with no limit on their imaginations, allowing them to create larger than life sculptures and shapes in a fraction of the time
