Monolithic circular cutting tools in solid carbide and high-speed steel are for depaneling printed circuit boards.
Saw blade designs are for straight line depaneling of glassfiber and ceramic-based PCBs like FR2, FR4, CEM1, CEM3, as well as aluminum and copper PCBs. For larger PCBs, V-Scoring cutters with either 25° or 30° prism angles are used to create a breaking point. Customized tooling is available, including insulation groove cutters, collector cutters, commutator cutters, balancing cutters, scoring saws, circular knives, crush cut knives, profile-, form-, and contour milling cutters, circular saw blades and blanks for CBN and diamond cutting wheels.
