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.
ArchiRouter: Cost-effective façade panel production.
ArchiRouter is an integrated system composed of an inseparable combination of machine and software. The entire system is specifically designed for the production of façade panels. The continuous production process drastically improves cost-effectiveness. It is much less labour-intensive than the conventional process, and in addition it virtually eliminates production errors.
PCB routing machines in maxi format
PCB routing machines are primarily used to make prototype PCBs quickly and accurately. However, there are also other user communities. For instance, these machines are often used by organisations that want to keep their designs confidential, such as intelligence services, police forces and the military. In addition to prototype PCBs, these organisations also make custom PCBs, often in small quantities.
For many years Colinbus has been making special machines for these customers, but the demand for extra large machines is now greater than ever. PCB routing machines with a working area of nearly 1 by 2 metres are a regular occurrence. They are primarily used for HF applications; the machine shown here is mainly used to make antennas.The technical specifications are to a certain extent the same as the LaboFlex series.
Colinbus presents the new CMR series
The fully revamped CMR series was unveiled in early September. With their new servo system and special construction, these machines are faster, more precise and more powerful than their predecessors. Thanks to feedback from our CMR users, these machines now have several features that cannot be found in standard CNC routers. If you are looking for a reliable and cost-effective machine, you should certainly pay a visit to the Colinbus showroom.
Now also available with multiple Z axes (see photo).
LaboFlex Heavy Duty joins the standard line-up
It is common knowledge that the LaboFlex machines are suitable for routing high-precision printed circuit boards and 3D models in lightweight materials. A recent survey revealed that there are many users who need a machine with similar features, but suitable for machining heavier materials. In response to this, we have decided to include the LaboFlex Heavy Duty model, which previously was only made to order, in the standard Colinbus product line.
The LaboFlex Heavy Duty is equipped with a more robust drive and a more powerful high-speed spindle motor. The precision is the same as the standard LaboFlex machines, while the working speed is somewhat greater.
PCB BOX now available from stock
The popularity of this machine, along with the unfortunate bankruptcy of one of our key suppliers, led to long delivery times in the past. Fortunately this period is behind us now and we can deliver from stock. With some versions there may be slight delays in delivery, but only in exceptional cases.
