For anyone serious about CNC, a visit to the AES stand in hall 11, stand D44 will certainly be an eye opener.

Perhaps somewhat of an unknown brand in the UK, AES is a global manufacturer of one of the largest ranges of CNC machinery available and sticks to the golden rules of heavy engineering and the use of only quality, branded components during the construction process. All machines are also equipped with industry-leading Alphacam CAD/CAM software.

The new Nova Super nesting machine

Making its debut at Ligna will be the new AES Nova Super nesting machine, which is available with various bed sizes and has a rapid positioning speed of 70m/min. These machines are equipped with a powerful 9kW HSD router head and have a linear tool changer as standard. The Nova series of CNC machines is the starting point of the AES industrial nesting machines. 

This will be accompanied by an example of one of AES’ heavy-duty fully-automatic nesting lines with lift table, automatic bed cleaning, automatic workpiece removal and side-mounted 12-position rotary tool-changer. 

All the AES nesting machines are available with a host of options including various vacuum options, face drilling and vacuum pods to allow end drilling to name a few.

The AES Vega 5X is ideal for staircase production, door blanks and other complex large format work

For manufacturers of staircases, fire doors and bespoke furniture there will be the AES Vega 5X on demonstration. This five-axis machine has a liquid-cooled HSD Infinity router head, which allows seamless machining of complex curved components. This versatile machine comes complete with the powerful Alphacam Ultimate software.

For furniture production, there will be the Sirius through-feed drilling machine having 10 vertical drills and can drill to all four sides, has a grooving saw and the option of a router head. 

Also on display will be an example of the AES Vega pod and rail-style machine which has the option of a horizontal router head for those looking for an all-rounder for both furniture and joinery production.

Completing the AES display is the all-new AES Alpha beamsaw of which there are several models available giving different cutting heights and available with optional lift table and automatic labelling.
