Mechanical Routers

Definition : Equipment designed for use in making smooth (e.g., rounded) edges and/or milling out the surface of materials such as plastics, wood, and metal. These routers frequently follow a template. Mechanical routers typically consist of a portable or benchtop machine with an electric motor, a base, and a revolving vertical spindle and cutting tools (e.g., bits). The routers may include lights to provide illumination and/or a support for the piece (e.g., a vise clamped to a bench) that is being conformed. Mechanical routers are used mainly in carpentry work (e.g., to make furniture); dedicated mechanical routers intended for use in dental laboratories and/or to conform bones in orthopedic procedures are also available.
