Our New Manufacturing Technique: CNC Machining

CNC machine cutting Tongue and Groove MDF panels at Naturewall's UK factory.

As we begin a new year, we're excited to officially announce the expansion of our UK production facilities. We've been busy behind the scenes bringing our Beverley workshop to life with cutting-edge technology. As part of this expansion, we're thrilled to welcome a new addition to our manufacturing methods: CNC machining. This device plays a key role in making our paintable styles, namely Tongue and Groove, Reeded, Fluted and SlatWall MDF panels.

What is a CNC machine? 

CNC stands for Computer Numerical Control. This type of machine uses automated software to direct the movement of its cutting tools across the chosen sheet material, with different tooling used to cut out particular profiles.

Due to the levels of accuracy and consistency in CNC machining, we can produce panels at scale to premium standards, ensuring the paintable styles boast the same high quality as SlatWall.


How we make wall panels with our CNC machine

Using the drawings provided by our design team, we program the CNC machine with the dimensions we want to create and lay out the sheet material – in the case of our latest collections, that's moisture-resistant MDF and Hidrofugo MDF. Depending on the type of panelling that's been programmed, the grooves, reeds or flutes are precisely chiselled into the material's surface with the relevant cutters. In other words, it turns a flat surface into a three-dimensional design brimming with intrigue, depth and drama.
