Depanelling today

In the process of depanelling market requirements increased extremely over the last years. Panels – carrying printed circuit boards – come in many different materials as in example FR4, plastics, ceramics, aluminium, copper or in various material thicknesses and are always to be depanelled in the same quality of cut. On top it is requested that the process of production is as stress- and dust-reduced as possible not to harm the sensible parts. A short process-time and the possibility to be quick and comfortable in changing production becomes more and more important. At this stage we offer solutions for all requirements as for manuel, semiautomatic, fully automatic depanelling with a mix of routing and cutting for highly sophisticated depanelling requirements.

Cost-efficient and fully automated depanelling
Disc- or shank-cutting technology

The series INT 4646 unit offers powerful und profitable depanelling of printed circuit boards, indeal for high volumes and product variance. With dimensions of (W/D/H) 1.000 mm x 1.850 mm x 1.750 mm this in-line depanelling machine is among the most compact models granting fast, highly stress- and dust-reduced depanelling for all kinds of printed circuit boards.


In-line depanelling - Quality in every detail

Escept for the space requiremtns, we did not save on Performance and Quality for the in-line series 4646. A low-vibration welded steel frame, precise linear motor technology with high resolution measuring system and application of high-quality tools grant a long life-cycle.
