A3HSRmi2 High Performance Router

Product Code: A3HSMI2

Bench top high performance router capable of machining aluminium alloys and brass.The PC controlled Boxford A3HSRmi2 High Speed Router is ideally suited to a classroom environment and offers the ideal solution for high tech. education and training requirement’s. Operating on IBM/100% compatible computers, the inclusive user-friendly software has routines for Computer Aided Design [CAD] at both simple and sophisticated levels and will process the drawings through to a full machining routine. Also available in extended (Ex) format for that extra machining capacity whilst still passing through a standard single door way.

This equipment has been included in the ATEQ range because it fulfils our selection criteria: 

  • be designed for educational use
  • be the safest version of its type
  • be as easy to use as possible
  • be tested in classrooms around the world
  • maximise opportunities for direct student use
  • maximise the process of learning through making

CNC Features

  • The Boxford software is an integrated suite of powerful CAD/CAM tools.
  • The CAD includes the handling of most text fonts with excellent manipulation routines. Drawings from other CAD applications can also be imported and processed. A full 3D simulation of the manufacturing process, including a cycle time, can be shown enabling work to be proven without the need for trial runs on the machine. Manual Data Input allows programs to be entered using international Industrial programming conventions.
  • As with all Boxford PC machines, the A3HSRmi2 incorporates hardware capable of continuous 3 axis movement utilising the latest Continuous Path Manufacturing technology. This allows large programs, imported from Major CAD/CAM packages, to be machined extremely efficiently and is an essential machine feature for successful Rapid Prototyping of 3D reliefs.

Wheeled cabinet base

  • Designed for 3D manufacture, the long Z axis travel allows the machining of tall components.
  • The powerful 1KW High Frequency spindle motor and rigid machine construction allows the use of high material removal rate strategies producing a component throughput lighter machines cannot match. The machine rigidity also allows for the machining of alluminium alloys and brass.
  • Touch sensitive control panel incorporating illuminated push buttons allows the machines to be operated without a computer.
  • Active and accurate tool path graphics continuously displayed line by line during program write, test run and manufacture. 


Safety Equipment and Features


  • Full perimeter guarding with interlocking switches on access doors arranged in the positive (safety) mode for spindle stop and feed hold.
  • Overload cut-out on spindle drive.
  • Positive end stops on all axes.
  • Mandatory simulation required for new programs before machining cycle can be commenced. 
  • Step by step execution of graphics in advance of cut in machining cycle.
  • Integrated electrical panel with no volt supply protection.
  • Feed rate over-ride.
  • Feed hold.Single block operation.
  • Latching emergency stop button.
  • Power on indicator lamp.
  • Low voltage control circuitry.


Machine Specification

  • Precision ground linear slides on all axes.
  • Sealed Linear ball bearings on all axes.
  • Pre-loaded anti-backlash ball screws on all axes.
  • Three axis simultaneous operation.
  • Fully enclosed see through guarding for safety and improved student viewing.Integrated electrical panel.
  • Tooling Starter Pack Included.
  • ‘Off-Centred Cam’ Clamping system & T-slot.
