Product Features

The AR family of Automatic Routers offer the ultimate in quick product changeover.  No product fixtures required.  Auto PCB gripper tool change and bit change are standard.  Select the program and the rest is automatic. The AR2020 has heavy duty machine tool construction.  Its primary mounting base is made of solid two inch thick steel and is precision ground.  Its base construction supports its high precision (cutting accuracy .0005 inches) and high speed capability. PCBs enter on an auto width edge rail conveyor.  Individual PCBs are held by flexible tooling fingers on an overhead gantry.  The boards are routed from the bottom side and the upper gantry places them onto a second conveyor to exit the machine. Infeed and outfeed conveyors, flat belts, tray feeders, and additional configurations are available.
