Revolutionising Interior Linings: How Our New CNC Machine is Transforming LOCK5’s performance

In the evolving world of event fit-out, staying ahead of the curve is not just a goal; it’s a necessity. With the demand for high-quality interior finishes on the rise, LOCK5 recognised the need for innovation to maintain a competitive edge therefore we proudly introduce our latest game-changer: a state-of-the-art fabric CNC machine.

Here are just some of the ways this technology has revolutionised our operations and boosted LOCK5’s performance to new heights.

Precision & Efficiency

The most remarkable aspects of our new CNC machine are its unparalleled precision and efficiency. The days of manual labour and the inevitable (but extremely rare) human errors are a thing of the past. With computer-controlled precision, our machine consistently delivers a product that meets the strictest quality standards within a fraction of the time.

Efficiency is the backbone of any successful business, and our CNC machine has injected a powerful dose of it into our operations. With its ability to work tirelessly around the clock, we have drastically reduced production times. What used to take days can now be accomplished in a matter of hours and depending on the complexity of the product we have reduced cutting time an average of 12%-20% and we are still learning so are expecting more! This has not only increased our output but also allowed us to take on larger and more complex projects.

Skilled Workforce Augmentation

Contrary to the misconception that automation replaces jobs, our CNC machine has actually augmented our skilled workforce as LOCK5 took the opportunity to invest in its people with additional training not only for the CNC machine but computer aided design (CAD) and other bespoke software so instead of spending hours on repetitive, manual tasks, our employees now operate and oversee the CNC machine, allowing them to focus on higher-value activities such as quality control, problem-solving, and customer interaction.


In today’s world, sustainability is not just a buzzword; it’s a responsibility. Our new CNC machine has played a significant role in our sustainability efforts. By minimising fabric waste straight from the cutting table, we have significantly lowered our environmental footprint. Additionally, the energy efficiency of our CNC machine has reduced our energy costs, making our operations more cost-effective and eco-friendly.

Limitless Customisation

While LOCK5 already offers a bespoke manufacture service our new CNC machine has helped us raise our game with a world of possibilities in this regard to creating bespoke linings with ease, whether it’s intricate designs, unique patterns, or tailored sizes, our CNC machine can execute it all with ease in a fraction of the time.
