Anyone care to guess what this is? Is it a computer even?

There's an indicator/switch labelled "ASCII". It's clearly late
70's/early 80's vintage, so it's likely computer-controlled, if
not containing a computer, though there's enough board area for a
Z80 system.  It's very clearly machine tool control, either
metal-fabricating (specialized mill/drill etc) or a manufacturing
controller (stamps out condom wrappers, whatever).
