Router Plates

Router plates are designed to accurately locate and secure a printed circuit board while it is being depanelized from its protective salve-edge frame or machining many smaller printed circuit boards from a larger collection. Router plates can be made to fit directly onto a tooling table within the router or can be designed to locate on machine rails, hereby allowing tall components to be accommodated.

This tooling is designed directly from the Printed Circuit Board Gerber files which includes all the drill data and will be subsequently verified during pre-production setup using a blank printed circuit board.

Key Product Features and Benefits:

  • Dedicated hand and clamshell variants.
  • Provides maximum support near routed tabs.
  • Top and Underside tooling pins for accurate loading of boards and fixture.
  • High accuracy low profile grippers.

Product Guide

"Elite Electronic Systems encountered a production issue on one of their main product lines. To meet stringent deadlines electronic component supporting jigs were required urgently... A video conference call was setup next day which identified the required detail. Key data parameters were transferred, with suggested solutions proposed to Elite the following day. Another supporting video call established and confirmed final jig parameters. Jig samples were completed and despatched arriving in Elite next day. Elite Electronic Systems Ltd were impressed by the focused response from Globaldatum. Suggestions were initially proposed with a final solution achieved within a very short time. It reflected the knowledge and expertise held within Globaldatum in this field."
