What does a Printed Circuit Boards Router do?
Operates routing machine to cut and shape individual printed circuit boards according to specifications: Positions and secures PCB’s between dies or on templates. Positions secured PCB on router platform to align connector edges with machine cutter. Adjusts cutter spindle, using wrenches, and installs cutter of specified size on spindle. Flips switch to activate routing machine. Turns calibrated dials on routing machines to specified markings on dials to adjust milling dimensions of router. Manually guides edges of board against cutter to rout connector edges. Measures dimensions of board, using vernier calipers, to verify that board is routed according to specifications. Separates dies or removes template from PCB. May operate shearing machine to separate PCB from panels. May operate slotting machine to mill slots in PCB’s.
