PCB Dril using microcontroller AVR

This PCB drill project created by Shawn Kelly. This is one of cool electronic project. According to him, The moving part is the tabel not the drill head. To make sure everithing work fine, the project tested with Labcenter’s Proteus VSM / Isis. With this PCB drill, it will saving our time to drill pcb when build electronic project.

Made from Dremel drill and drill press. I removed the bottom plate & mounted the column to the back with U-bolts. Acrylic is so easy to work with. It can be cut, drilled milled & glued and it’s very strong, doesn’t warp or break easily. The design is the same as the big PCB drills, the table moves, not the drill head. With the exception the real machine tables I’ve worked around ride on air. Like the old air hockey tables Important note: These NEMA teen motors don’t have enough torque to drive the table (no bearings).
