CNC Routing Aluminium for Kinetic Art

Routers Australia recently completed work involving CNC Routing Aluminium for Kinetic Art. The pieces were to be part of an interesting sculpture which was the creation of well-known Perth artist, Geoffrey-Drake Brockman.

Brockman’s original piece, titled “Howe’s Dream”, was attached to an old sewing machine & exhibited at the “Machines and Makers” Exhibition at Mundaring Arts Centre in 2016.

The concept is taken from the intriging true story  which Geoffrey relates:

“In 1845 Elias Howe had a dream in which he was surrounded by cannibals. They were holding spears and preparing to cook him. He was in the middle of all the cannibals and they were jabbing rhythmically at him with their spears. Howe noticed that the head of each spear had a hole in it. Thus inspired, Howe went on to invent the modern sewing machine – which uses a needle with a hole at its tip…”

The pieces were cut from 3mm thick aluminium using a 2mm diameter cutter to obtain small radii. A small drill of 1.6mm diameter was used as well.

Fine detail can be produced in all types of components by a CNC Router. This is shown by the fine inlay in the arrowhead piece.
