ESO Engineering is a friendly manufacturing company growing steadily in the heart of Hill Star industria in Wetton , Cape Town, South Africa. It was formed in January of 2003 and originally specialized in
Due to an absolute fascination with automatic and robotic machining, we investigated researched and now developed our own CNC brand called the UNI-CAM CNC system .
The UNI-CAM brand is so called because it is basically one type of CAM system which can be used to drive a variety of CNC machines like mills, lathes, routers, hot wire cutters, plasma cutters and digitizers.
ESO Engineering is now primarily concerned with the development of locally produced industrial quality UNI-CAM CNC machines.
“... So who makes CNC machines in South Africa ...?”
For too long we South Africans have stood aside and bought our machinery and technologies from the rest of the world thinking... “if it is imported, it must be better !” This is particularly true for the CNC Machine market. We have found nowadays that with the quality and capability of ordinary off the shelf computers and CNC controller software currently available , CNC machinery can be both reliable and affordable to the public and industrial sector right NOW !
The bottom line here is ...the PC’s are quick, the controller software is reliable , the toolpathing programs are only getting easier and easier to operate , the bearings are good ...all that is left is to build a sturdy well made machine frame [ with a bit of style] to attach the whole lot to ! it is really not that hard to build a good reliable CNC machine anymore!
We need to understand that CNC stands for “ computer-numerical-control” and not “complicated numerical control” many people will like to have you think that it is all a very difficult to understand kind of technology which is best left to the specialist and that way you will stay of their turf, but the truth is that CNC machining is easy to work and it is affordable. Owning and operating a CNC machine is well within your reach rightNOW !
Whether you need something designed or manufactured, we have what you need at prices you can afford. At ESO ENGINEERING , our goal is to provide you with courteous, expedient, professional service and ongoing tech support .
