Tabletop Router for Depaneling Tab Routed PCBs
Product Announcement from FKN Systek, Inc.
A new, low-cost benchtop PCB depaneling router for applications requiring routing rather than punching, or as a backup to high-speed programmable routers for short runs, and for separating thick back planes is being introduced by FKN Systek, Inc. of Framingham, Massachusetts.
The FKN R100 Tabletop Depaneling Router is designed for manually separating PCB panels and producing uniform edges with quality comparable to in-line programmable router systems. Featuring a positioning collet with two fully adjustable guide pins on either side of the router bit, this depaneling router cleanly separates the boards along the routing channel path.
Accommodating virtually any size PCB, the FKN R100 Tabletop Depaneling Router has a guide pin positioning collet which lets an operator match the contour of the cutting path around a PCB panel. Standard features include an adjustable spindle speed up to 35,000 RPM, adjustable router bit height, choice of 5 standard bit sizes, built- in dust extraction channel, and a safety shield.
