Producing printed circuit boards can be a costly procedure. If not done correctly, the circuit boards can be put at risk of being damaged or destroyed during production, transportation, or assembly. Panelizing your printed circuit boards is an excellent way to not only ensure their safety during production but also to reduce your overall costs and production time during the process. Here are some methods of panelizing your printed circuit boards, as well as some common challenges faced during this process.
Depaneling an array of assembled circuit boards can be a huge time and money saver for the PCB manufacturing industry. Printed circuit boards can be lumped together en masse in panels and separated after all of the individual boards on the panel have been populated with components. The process of depaneling can be complex because of the massive amount of circuit boards types. With so many things to keep track of, there can be complications, but they can be easily avoided with proper data analysis and preparation.
If you run a robotics company or work in an industry that uses automated manufacturing or CNC machinery, chances are you work with machines that run on servo motors. While these types of devices have been instrumental in automating production which was previously done manually, they are not without their shortcomings. Servo motors can be somewhat sensitive and be put out of commission by a variety of outside factors that operators might not be aware of. Let’s take a look at five common reasons why servo motors tend to fail.
Almost every new piece of technology you see nowadays, from cell phones to the keyboards in your computers are built with Flexible Printed Circut Boards. These boards can adapt to any shape and are not limited to a design built around a rigid, unbending circuit board. Let’s take a look at some of the advantages of using a flexible printed circuit board.
As we continue to evolve our automobile technology, we need reliable printed circuit boards to do the dirty work of processing all our demands. Our vehicles nowadays are becoming reliant on technological processes that involve printed circuit boards (PCB). The electronic automotive industry is growing at an incredible speed, with profits now reaching into the billions every year.
