Branchflowers CNC Routing was established by Chris Branchflower in 2008, but his introduction to CNC routers began two years prior. Following a back injury whilst working in marquee fit-outs, Chris was encouraged to utilise modern, high-tech machinery to help take the pressure of his workload and its labor-intensive requirements. Thus, a love affair with CNC routing began.
Chris set up shop in a factory on Duke Street, Abbotsford. 220 square metres in size, he was there for 10 years before moving to the business’ current address in Yarraville. He employed his first worker and forklift in 2012, and the two of them made up the Branchflowers CNC Routing team.
Between 2012-2016, only one other employee worked on site beside Chris (either a CNC programmer or a CNC operator), but from 2016 to now, the business has become a trio, comprising of Chris and two additional workers – a programmer and an operator. They do everything from receiving goods, packing and loading, to programming and cutting.
Chris’ first machine was an Italian 1994 SCM Record 2 which he acquired from legendary Australian instrument manufacturers, Maton Guitars. It could only receive 64kb files at a time, but in 2011, he scaled it up to a newer machine – an Australian Procam mityboy which the business was born on the back of – and it’s still in operation today!
Branchflowers CNC Routing currently has 2 machines in operation. One is an American Anderson Selexx with a 3600mm x 1200mm bed size. It has a vacuum table and 10 drill Gang drill for machining multiple holes at one time. It's a 3-axis machine which is capable of 3D machining. His other model is a Procam Mityboy with a 2400mm x 1200mm bed size. It also has a vacuum table, and can also undertake 3D machining.
