Our Technology

In this fast paced and ever changing world businesses ignore technologies at their peril. PDLC embrace them and over our history we have been the first in New Zealand to purchase numerous pieces of sophisticated machinery to constantly stay in front of our competition and offer world class solutions with unequalled precision and efficiences throughout the manufacturing process. 

The pefect marriage of science and engineering has created the laser and simply we could not operate without the superior dimensional and positional accuracy we obtain from these machines.

Our biggest investments by far have been in this area and we have selected world leading European manufacturers with rofin technology for these critical pieces of equipment. They cut with incredible accuracy and precision to complete the job perfectly every time providing reliability and dependability for all our tooling solutions.

We have chosen another European designed multi functional milling system with high processing accuracy. This machine autonomously controls areas such as spindle pitch, topology compensation, channel width and tool length, achieving a continuous high quality cut with Pertinax or Steel.

We also have invested in a precision benchtop milling machine from Japan using Subtractive Rapid Prototyping (SRP) technology. Giving us the advantage of being able to mill a wide variety of materials producing molds and parts for prototype through to small lot production runs.

A Swiss company has established itself as the worlds leading manufacturer of high precision universal plotting and cutting systems. They have set unequalled standards for many years, as accurate, versatile and efficient output stations for CAD systems for plotting, scribing, milling and creasing.

The Easy Bender range has established itself as the most sought after and versatile automated bender in history with its patented bending mechanism with retractable bending fingers providing flexibility not available on other equipment producing rule with superior flatness and radius accuracy.

We have 6 Easy Benders on the workshop floor including an automatic Rotary Bender which processes curved rule for our Rotary Dies.

CAD system integration and custom file convertors enable flexible, laser manufacturing from customer-provided data. Although most file types are accepted, the preferred file types are DXF, DWG. EPS and AI.
