The Point Acoustic is a compact CNC machine designed specifically for the manufacturing of acoustic/sound absorbing panels, which represents a growing segment of the wood industry. These panels address noise pollution, which many studies have confirmed to be causing a serious impact in the environment, workplaces, cinemas, theaters, as well as private residences. Drill bits ranging from 0.7 mm to 12 mm in diameter can be utilized for various drilling patterns as required.
Patterns can be designed and downloaded from the office computer and stored in memory or loaded directly onto the machine’s computer by the operator. Additional Advantages of Point Acoustic:
  • Drilling from below greatly improves dust collection & removal of excess material - Compact machine only requires 40 sq. ft. of space - Noise reduction
  • Greater flexibility
  • Extremely fast production with very fast ROI - Affordable machine cost - Minimum equipment maintenance, electrical and pneumatic costs
