Router Trimming

DUO Robotic Solutions designs and builds robotic router trimming systems that produce high quality parts much more effectively than a traditional CNC.


Our enclosed turnkey systems are equipped with high speed robots, high speed spindles and rotating tables for maximum efficiency. Our systems are engineered with RIA standards which are essential for operator safety.


A typical robotic router system will surpass the efficiency of a traditional CNC with up to 40% shorter cycle time. A 6-axis robot has faster accelerations, speedy air moves and high cutting speed.


Robotic routing is a fast and efficient material separation process. The router produces a very clean edge in plastics and composites; it can be programmed to cut through the part, or just trim the material to a predetermined depth (blind holes and pockets). A vacuum system can be used to collect the cut-outs and chips.

  • Thermoforming

  • Blow molding

  • Rotational molding

  • Compression molding

  • Open mold gelcoat

  • FRP

  • Resin Transfer Molding (RTM)

  • Plastics PP, ABS, polycarbonate PC

  • Vinyl, acrylic, wood

  • Fiberglass, SMC, gelcoat, FRP & carbon fiber

Benefits of Robotic Routing
  • The process will machine complex contour geometries and accurately cut holes

  • Faster cycle times than CNC due to time savings with quick robot air moves and faster spindle speeds 

  • Robots are designed for harsh environments with much better dust protection than conventional CNCs 

  • Robots require minimal maintenance and can be easily re-calibrated in case of a crash as compared to CNCs 

  • High speed tool changes result in lower cost per part
