About AXYZ International


AXYZ International is a leading global manufacturer of CNC router systems and CNC knife systems. Designed and built at their state of the art factory in Canada, AXYZ CNC routers are supplied and supported through a global network of sales and support offices and authorised dealers. With over 366,918 standard machine configurations, AXYZ specialise in matching machinery to customer’s unique needs and budgets. 

All types of manufacturing operations are profiting from AXYZ technology developed over 25 years’ in the industry, such as; aluminium composites, sign and graphics, woodworking, plastic fabrication, point of purchase, metal fabrication, solid surface and many more.

From then to now

Founded in 1990, AXYZ International was initially set up as a service company, installing and repairing several brands of CNC routers. It wasn’t until 1994 that AXYZ started to manufacture their own CNC routers having relocated to a new headquarters in Burlington, Canada. Production was slow at the beginning but the sales and service force rapidly grew, establishing a global reach with additional offices in Quebec and the UK.

By 1999, AXYZ had opened an office in Poland, enhancing their global reach. In 2001, AXYZ had already sold 1000 machines, and as such expanded their UK sales and support office. Three years later, AXYZ had sold 2000 machines and opened offices in India and the United States. Further growth, saw AXYZ acquire Pacer Systems in the UK and Camtech International based in Calgary in 2006 and 2007.. Soon after, AXYZ launched their ground-breaking A2MC Machine Controller, taking their CNC machines to the next level.

By 2010, AXYZ had eleven offices around the world including: Burlington, Montreal, Calgary, Vancouver, Los Angeles, Cincinnati, Atlanta, Wolverhampton, Nottingham, India and Poland. The same year saw AXYZ sell their 4000th Series machine which went to a customer in Edmonton, Alberta. Four years later, it was quite fitting that AXYZ celebrated 20 years of manufacturing with the sale of the 5000th AXYZ machine.

AXYZ continue to expand having recently built  new, purpose designed premises in Telford, UK, launched a new hybrid machine system called the Trident Series and opened a new sales and support office in Tampa, Florida.

AXYZ International have now established themselves as a world leader in providing versatile, configurable and revolutionary high performance CNC routing, engraving and knife cutting solutions. However, exponential growth over a 25 year period wasn’t achieved on a whim, AXYZ firmly believed in three key principles; Being Fast, Flexible and Direct, which as of yet has not steered them wrong. 

What makes AXYZ fast?

AXYZ has changed the whole concept of speed, especially when delivering a customised machine. Back in the 1990s it could have been as much as thirty weeks or longer to build and deliver a machine. In 2015, with their exceptional manufacturing processes, AXYZ offer the shortest manufacturing lead times in the industry, averaging 4-6 weeks. 

All AXYZ CNC router systems are engineered, manufactured and delivered to meet your exacting timescales. How you ask? Right from the beginning customers will notice their systematic approach to finding the right solution. A thorough assessment of organisational needs formulates a customised solution. A clear workflow means that their state-of-the-art machine building facility, aided by unique manufacturing processes is able to build the system as quickly and efficiently as possible.

The new system is then delivered and installed by a factory trained AXYZ engineer, followed by a custom training program tailored to the machine’s unique configuration.

What makes AXYZ flexible?

One of the greatest strengths of AXYZ International is the ability to configure a machine to suit almost any specific manufacturing need from one-off projects to high volume manufacturing. The ingenuity of their manufacturing and engineering departments allows for ultimate freedom. The ability to produce their own machine controller has made the impossible possible, passing the benefits onto both new and existing customers.

With that said, AXYZ offer a range of configurations to meet almost any application requirement, and despite this flexibility their refined processes have ensured there is no compromise on quality.

Starting with process areas, AXYZ offer their most-compact full-size machine, the AXYZ 2000 Series. Perfect for customers with limited workshop space, the 2000 series offers a processing width of 711mm, whilst their largest standard machine, the 10000 Series offers a huge 3270mm wide process area, all of which can be specified up to 15m long.

It’s not only the bed size which you have the luxury of choosing, you can specify a single, double or even triple-head carriage to manage multiple operations. Considering the range of cutting heads that can be used – routing spindles, knife units, drills and more, and all the ways in which they can be arranged on the machine either with or without an automatic tool changer, and all the other optional features, the possibilities are almost endless.

Having said that, the engineering department are continuously working on new developments, and there is always something new around the corner. 

What makes AXYZ direct?

The AXYZ International team believe it’s crucial for ongoing success to keep in touch with their clients. So much so, they have sales and support offices in Canada, the United States, the UK, Poland and India, enabling them to directly interact with more than 90% of their customers. 

Direct contact be it physically, via the phone or the web, makes it not only easy to visit, research and purchase a CNC router, but it makes the after-sales service more approachable and invariably better. Each of their eleven locations have dedicated sales representatives which have the skills and knowledge to provide individual, bespoke product demonstrations, to ease your mind and answer your questions in a convenient location, close by. The after-sales service department operating under the CNCRoutershop brand have factory trained engineers on hand in each location ready to respond, whilst their 24/7 online store provides spare parts, software and online support, which means you are in direct contact with the factory.
