CNC Factory’s Viper XP enables ElectroPhonic Innovations to make each EP Model One all-encased, electric guitar with au- dio and artisan excellence. Each ElectroPhonics Model One
sports a sculpted, 24. 75” maple neck and fingerboards with 22 frets
intoned with precision in a traditional “Paul” style. These guitars play
evenly and smoothly across a 12-degree radius up and down the fret
board. The dips and curves of the ocean-wave styled body give the
inspired signature profile. Three different woods are used on every
Model One: a poplar body, maple neck and rosewood fret board.
“It is truly an honor for ElectroPhonic’s team to choose our
Viper XP to create these beautiful, melodic instruments,” Chris
Corrales, CNC Factory Owner says.
ElectroPhonics entrusted the Viper XP to make their guitars
after looking at several other CNC companies’ machines. A key
factor was the need for the CNC Machine to be able to deliver
smooth sculpted contours, exact cuts on different woods
milled simultaneously, and an overall skilled craftsman feel.
Not only could CNC Factory’s Viper XP handle the intricacies of
the workmanship, it could do it in a customized 4ft x 4ft footprint and on a vacuum table with dust collection. CNC Factory’s Viper XP is a nimble, versatile technologically advanced
machine. It boasts the smallest footprint in the industry. However, ElectroPhonic Innovations needed an even smaller footprint for their workshop and CNC Factory delivered! Because
CNC Factory builds their equipment in Santa Ana, California,
most all of their machines can be customized to the unique
situations and needs of its customers.
ElectroPhonic Innovations can load materials accurately every
time, with the Viper’s built in, pop-up pins and controllable
dust hood, built-in machine lubrication system, and zoned
Built with a heavy duty design, the VIPER XP also performs
with “Precision Cut.” With cutting speeds of over 900 inches
per minute and a rapid travel of 1200 inches per minute the
VIPER XP sets the pace of production speed.
CNC Factory’s VIPER XP
is an Artisan’s Instrument
The Viper XP is equipped with a 10HP air
cooled spindle and 8-tool, high-speed,
tool changer for complex multi tasks.
To give ElectroPhonic Innovations maximum precision cutting ability CNC Factory customized their machine to a 10-
tool changer. This allows the technician
to add different sized cuts or even art
onto the body of the instruments.
The Viper XP can interface with a number of software suites for the most innovative of wood creations. ElectroPhonic
Innovations uses SolidWorks with HSM
CAD for their guitars which have mazelike cavities inside the casings. These
curvy cavities are vital in producing the
instrument’s phenomenal, harmonious, singing sounds. The Viper XP is
an artisan’s instrument when it comes
to cutting intricate, precise shapes and
depths, which can make all the difference in a guitar’s tone.
