PCB Routing And Fabrication Machine

Watch a 4 spindle Excellon Mark 5 DR (Driller/Router) routing a stack of printed circuit boards. See how the automated process works.

Circuit boards are typically manufactured in a step and repeat layup, and held in place on the machine with tooling pins through the circuit board and into the soft tooling plates. Stack height varies depending on board thickness and material type.

Cutter bits for cutting PCBs are typically solid tungsten carbide, with a diamond cut geometry design. Table feed presented in the video is typical for a .093 inch diameter bit.
