Capabilities

We take pride in the collection of CNC and manual machinery we have at Franklin Engineering. With all preventative maintenance and repairs taken care of by our in-house team we aim to keep the up-time of our machinery high, ensuring we can complete your orders on-time and to specification.

All of our CNC machines we program using Autodesk Fusion 360 CAM software. This enables us to create efficient and safe CNC programs, even for complex machining tasks.
