Manufacturing Engineering

The concept of our MicroCNC range of machines is simple, these low accuracy, low cost CNC machines allow students to individually get lots of practice in manufacturing on a low specification CNC machine before progressing onto more expensive industrial/educational machines. The machines are low voltages, low power, safe and easy to store, but are programmed just like production CNC machines.

Testimonials

New College Lanarkshire:

"We use a number of the electronic kits supplied by Matrix to demonstrate the operation and testing of electrical and electronic circuits and we find the systems to be portable, robust and an ideal learning resource for all students at all levels. Students can build, test and understand the operation of a circuit on the bench; this ensures a good understanding of the current and voltage levels and the testing requirements."
