PCB Mill software


The PCB mill is a computer controlled (CNC) tool that can be used to cut the tracks for printed circuit boards (PCB). Training is required before members use the equipment because it is easy for users to damage themselves and the tool. Maximum travel is about 300mm in the Y direction, about 190mm in X, and 45mm in Z.


Health and Safety

  • Power supply to be switched off when changing tools.
  • All cutting tools to be kept in their holders until they are required.
  • Keep work area clear of waste material and offcuts.
  • Check equipment for defects before each use to minimise the risk of possible electrical faults or fire.
  • Carbon Dioxide extinguisher to be available for any electrical fires.
  • Wear eye protection.
