Routing can be done on a Star Lab using our rigid Proton Z axis. The Proton uses two large high end linear rails with a precision double anchored ballscrew. Coupled with a highly accurate slide mount and face plate the Proton is the perfect platform for routing operations. Star Lab machines are known for expert plasma cutting as well as routing.
