Giv­ing the cus­tomer what they want

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - SOUTHMACH -

Ver­tigo Technologies de­signs, de­vel­ops and man­u­fac­tures desk­top man­u­fac­tur­ing equip­ment. Based out of the Epic in­no­va­tion cen­tre in West­port, was founded by three peo­ple in early 2016. The com­pany has now grown to a team of seven in just over a year and has seen the re­lease of two prod­ucts to mar­ket, the GEM_ XYZ CNC a beta to the now avail­able Ver­tigo CNC.

The GEM_ XYZ was a belt driven small con­sumer grade CNC ma­chine, only a few units were re­leased for sale. The Ver­tigo Technologies team then worked with those cus­tomers to get their feed­back and used that so they could de­sign a ma­chine to fit what their cus­tomers re­ally wanted. By tak­ing on board this valu­able feed­back they have man­aged to cut down their time spent de­vel­op­ing sig­nif­i­cantly, and as thanks for pro­vid­ing them with this valu­able in­for­ma­tion Ver­tigo Tech has promised to swap out all ex­ist­ing GEM_ XYZ ma­chines with their re­de­vel­oped Ver­tigo CNC.

The new Ver­tigo CNC is lead screw driven and fea­tures their own Smooth­ieware based con­troller and with a more com­pact de­sign and a big­ger cut­ting area. The Ver­tigo CNC out­per­forms all other sim­i­lar CNCs cur­rently on the mar­ket. The Ver­tigo CNC is per­fect for any­one who is look­ing a get­ting into CNC ma­chin­ing. They have de­signed the Ver­tigo CNC to be sim­ple and easy to use, they do all the as­sem­bly for you, the Ver­tigo CNC is shipped ready to use right out of the box de­liv­ered to your door.

Ver­tigo Technologies also spe­cialises in cus­tom projects pro­vid­ing cus­tom- built CNCs to fit a va­ri­ety of pur­poses. They also re­cently worked on the giant street ar­cade in Christchurch in con­junc­tion with Gap Filler and Cere­bral Fix and supplied most of the com­puter hard­ware and con­troller for the project.

Ver­tigo Technologies see a real op­por­tu­nity to make desk­top man­u­fac­tur­ing so­lu­tions more read­ily avail­able. They have a real pas­sion for the in­dus­try and want to find ways to get more peo­ple in­ter­ested and ex­cited about desk­top fab­ri­ca­tion, de­sign and de­vel­op­ment.
