PCB Singulation Systems - hydraulic press? | 2 April, 2009

Can anyone here refer me to a company that does this type of singulation?

Back in the day, WAND used to be a player in this market. I don't think they're in business anymore.

16 Years ago we used a Cencorp. I don't know what kind of equipment they offer now but they are still in business.

I surfed their website and it looks like they only do routers.

ANYONE? DaveF? I'm desperate!

The term that you're searching for is: "Singulation" the process of die punching circuit boards with a hydraullic press. [Although the very nice people that sell "saw depanelers" call their equipment singulators. We assume they do that because either they're too lazy come-up with a term that reduces confusion, rather than increasing it or they're stupid.]

You're correct, Cencorp and 0Z0 Automation are router depaneling equipment suppliers. That's not what you're talking about.

Yes. Wand makes punch sinulation equipment. We think they're still around, maybe part of Tyco out of Harrisburg, PA.

We haven't stayed current. So to get started on contacts for singulation equipment suppliers, try searching the fine SMTnet Archives for threads like this: http://www.smtnet.com/forums/Index.cfm?CFApp=1&Message_ID=38860

davef is correct- WAND is part of Tyco Electronics. Or it was when we purchased ours. Beware though- the die sets are expensive.
