Six Generations of High Performance
C.F. Martin & Company has been designing and building quality acoustic guitars since 1832.
Among the legendary musicians who have selected C.F. Martin guitars have been Gene Autry, …
… Eric Clapton, …
Stars of Today and Tomorrow
… John Mayer, Ed Sheeran and Hunter Hayes (shown.)
Getting the Angle Right
Right-angle head compensation is essential to the accurate milling of guitar neck components.
Open, Flexible Programming
Right-angle milling functionality requires the sophisticated Sinumerik 840D sl CNC and ShopMill software, both developed by Siemens.
The Sinumerik CNC platform offers a control concept for every type of machine, “from basic CNC standard machines to standardized machine concepts through to modular premium machine concepts,” according to Siemens. The Sinumerik 840D sl control chosen by C.F. Martin & Co. maximizes openness and flexibility for programming and production, making it exceptionally well suited to machines on which mechanical configuration shall be individually tailored to the needs stated by the user.
Typical applications for the 840D sl include high-performance milling and turning, gear cutting, and multitask machining.
