New router to handle challenges

Zünd has launched a new high-powered RM-L router option for the popular Zünd G3 and D3 cutters, with a spindle delivering 3.6kW of processing power for acrylics, polycarbonates,

The router is available through Australian distributor Starleaton.

Starleaton says day-to-day production for a print service provider tends to be diverse and challenging. From plexiglass and polycarbonate to aluminum, ACM, MDF and other wood products, many substrates consist of materials that require different processing methods.

This diversity complicates the finishing process and increases the need to have the right tool for the job at hand. Zünd says its new RM-L routing system is capable of routing, engraving and polishing the most challenging materials efficiently and with precision.

According to Starleaton dense, hard materials can now be processed at greater speeds and cutting depths. This reduces the number of passes required and significantly increases throughput. To ensure sustained performance and efficiency, the spindle is water-cooled. In addition, a high-performance dust extraction system helps keep the working area clean, which further contributes to overall productivity.

The new router module is equipped with MQL, a minimal quantity lubrication system that keeps the bit lubricated to minimise friction. As a result, little heat is generated during routing, which has a dramatic effect on bit life. In addition, it allows for greater acceleration and processing speeds.

An intelligent surface compensation system determines the thickness of the material and detects inconsistencies. During processing, the system reliably compensates for any variances by making the necessary depth adjustments. Particularly for engraving applications, this effectively prevents quality issues arising from differences in material thickness by maintaining constant routing depths.
