Depaneling - Frost (GmbH) machine

Depaneling - Frost (GmbH) machine | 4 October, 2007

Being that is budgeting season I am interested in specifying more depaneling equipment but with an eye towards quality / realiability. We use routing for COB assemblies but have spec'd the Cab 4M for everything else. However, I came across a Frost machine from a German company and according to a sub-contractor this method (wedge principle) induces less stress on V-scored panels. A colleague even stated that some EU automotive companies will only outsource electronics using this methodology.

I can't find much to substantiate this claim nor any domestic equivalent style machines. Does anyone have any solid information.
