The Onsrud family’s machine manufacturing legacy, was born in the heart of the Chicago industrial core, and now spans 5 Generations. Oscar Onsrud and his son Rudy took manufacturing to a new level in 1915 when they built the world’s first “Jet Motor” (air turbine) hand router. Since that day, the Onsrud family has become synonymous with cutting materials. And so has the entrepreneurial spirit. After honing his skills in his grandfather and father’s business, Onsrud Machine Works, C.R. Onsrud founder, Charlie Onsrud headed south to bring the innovative thinking and skills to North Carolina. Like a piece of heirloom furniture, that same innovative spirit has been handed down to Charlie’s sons, and grandchildren.
Virtually every aircraft built for the U.S. war effort in WWII had parts made on Onsrud routers. Most of those machines are still in use today! Almost every M-1 rifle stock built in the Springfield Armory was made on an Onsrud machine. It is difficult to walk through any major furniture plant worldwide without finding an Onsrud machine in service. In 1976 we raised the standard again when Charles Onsrud patented the “Inverted Router™”, an idea and a machine that revolutionized the woodworking industry, increasing safety and usability. Today our CNC routers are quietly revolutionizing the concept of value by giving you the best-performing machines in the industry at a cost that our competitors say is not possible.
How do we do that? Through mass production and standardization, through modular construction and efficient design, we can supply 4000 inch per minute (ipm) speed, the rigidity of cast iron construction, “multi-drill” units, aggregates, saws, C-axis and 5-axis capability with multiple spindles on any of the many frame designs we offer. For the 4th year in a row C.R. Onsrud, Inc. has won the “Wood Digest Brand Preference” study!
The M Series may be the smallest moving gantry CNC router in the C.R. Onsrud line-up, but don’t be fooled into thinking it’s any less of a workhorse than bigger machines in our product line. C.R. Onsrud incorporates the same detailed engineering, workmanship and quality of materials into every machine we manufacture – no matter how small or large. The M Series CNC router boasts rigid frame construction, highly responsive drive mechanisms, and many more of the top-end features you’d expect to find on our bigger models. Our competitors may say we’ve over-engineered this model, but we just happen to think they’ve under-engineered theirs. We want you to have a CNC machine you can grow your business with, not just get by for now. With the M-Series, we give you the power, precision, speed and strength to do big things with this robust CNC platform, without any fears your machine gives out before you do.
There are even several sizes to choose from, ranging from 4′ X 8′ and up to 2M X 3M. Plus, the M Series includes the exact same factory provided onsite machine training, 5-years of advanced technical support with online remote diagnostics, 5-years of 24/7 Emergency Tech Support, and the same 2-year warranty package that comes standard on any Onsrud premium machine offering.
