FKN Systek Enables Clean and Safe PCB Depaneling

Reading time ( words)

FKN Systek has released a table top cut-off saw to use in singulating PCB panels up to 12” long. The S100 saw provides a low stress method to singulate panels and backplanes with sensitive surface mount components close to the edge of the parting section. The operator places the PCB to be singulated onto the positioning rails of a linear bearing guided table, and moves the table with the panel forward to make a smooth clean cut. The system features adjustable guide blades underneath the scoreline, making board alignment quick and easy.

Also, the PCB depaneling saw allows cutting depth to be set to just cut through the PCB itself. Any components which overhang the parting line will remain intact. A built-in dust extraction plenum around the saw blade pulls particles out of the environment into a HEPA filter. An additional clean up vacuum wand can be switched on as desired to remove any dust build up on the PCB edges.

The tool features a diamond saw blade measuring 2.95” (75mm) in diameter. It can cut boards up to 0.25” (6.35 mm) thick.

“What is your most common PCB problem?” A survey conducted by Bob Willis had revealed finish solderability to be the predominant contender, and it was clear that the choice of solderable finish applied to surface mount boards could have a significant effect on the assembly yield and cost of the final circuit. SMTA Europe organised an informative and enlightening webinar this month entitled “Guide to PCB Solder Finishes—Process Defects Causes and Cures,” with soldering specialist Bob Willis as presenter.

What is a good solder joint? And how can they be tested not only for purposes of process characterisation, optimisation, monitoring, and control but also for ensuring their long-term reliability? Pete Starkey details a webinar organised by the Europe Chapter of SMTA that was presented by Bob Willis, an expert in soldering, assembly technologies, and failure analysis.

Reducing Flux Splatter in Sensors and Camera Modules

10/30/2020 | Jasbir Bath, Shantanu Joshi, and Noriyoshi Uchida, Koki Solder America And Koki Company Limited
With the increased use of electronics in new technology areas, flux formulations are being developed to address the new and existing requirements. For sensors and camera modules used for Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and internet of things (IoT) applications, there is a demand for no-clean flux formulations in lead-free solder paste, which can reduce flux splattering during reflow.
