CNC Studio Life
Nidra bought one of the first CNC Studio machines. Dragan Pajic, Managing Director of Nidra, describes where and how the machine is used and his experience with the machine.
Profiler and Profiler Pro
The Profiler is a product that arose from the joint efforts of Colinbus and the publishers of Elektor magazine. This machine is intended for advanced hobbyists, and it is sold in the form of a construction kit.Click here for more information and a list of new accessories

The new MetaLab has been unveiled to the media. This is an extremely simple system for through-hole plating of printed circuit boards. Although it uses chemicals, they are practically harmless to people and the environment. In addition, it requires only very small amounts of chemicals

CNC Studio: the affordable CNC system
It’s common knowledge that many small companies need to have CNC technology in house in order to remain competitive. Despite this, many companies make little use of CNC machines. The responsible managers claim that the required investment is too large, they don’t have room for them, and they don’t know how to use them.
At Colinbus we resolved to find a solution to these objections, and we launched CNC Studio. In addition to supplying the machines our customers need at prices they can afford, we provide the right support. CNC Studio represents a concept that enables non-experts to make use of modern technology.
PCB Box production up to speed
The unexpectedly large demand for the PCB Box caused quite a few delivery problems, but we’re happy to report that these problems have largely been eliminated. These machines will soon be available from stock.
Although such long delivery times cause a lot of friction, the new machine has met with a very warm welcome. Quite a few companies and institutions ordered additional machines after receiving their first unit.
The PCB Box is a compact unit that easily fits on a spare corner of a workbench or lab table, and in addition to producing high precision printed circuit boards it can perform a wide variety of other tasks. Combining a low price with high application versatility, this machine is an attractive investment even if you are not interested in making your own PCBs.
Of course, the PCB Box is primarily conceived as a full-fledged PCB router that enables users to make their own PCBs with extremely high precision. Routing isolation tracks 100 µm wide and drilling 0.2-mm holes are well within it capabilities.The PCB Box is available at the very attractive price of 3.500,- Euros
New: PCB Box with 60,000 rpm spindle and automatic tool changing
The PCB Box is now also available with a high precision 60K spindle. In addition to being more accurate than the standard version, the spindle is much more powerful. This configuration enables the PCB Box to mill heavier materials and makes it more suitable for very fine electronics work.
Now also available with an automatic tool changer
LaboFlex now available with 100,000 rpm spindle
LaboFlex machines are used worldwide to produce high quality printed circuit boards and 3D models. They are very popular in R&D labs because they are the only machines that can handle both of these tasks. Of course, machines with a resolution of 0.23 µm can also be used in other areas. In fact, hundreds of LaboFlex units are used in areas outside the electronics industry.
Especially from users in these other areas, we regularly receive requests for a high-precision spindle with a higher speed than the 60K motor supplied as standard. Effective immediately, all LaboFlex Pro machines are accordingly available with a 100,000 rpm spindle.
Colinbus laser and plasma systems
We are now able to supply large machines with laser and plasma systems adapted to the customer’s needs. The smaller machines, which are primarily used for micromachining tasks, can be fitted with a fibre laser and optionally with a scanner.
The first standard production machines to be fitted with a laser and plasma system will be launched in the fall of 2012. Additional information on this will be available in a few months on this website.
