Where can I find pcb scoring guidelines for boards with different thicknesses, panel arrays, ....?

Ah, there�s the rub. So often we see scoring requirements defined based on depth of cut. This ignores that the depth changes with a variety of factors, including: * Wear on the cutting blade. * Variation in thickness of the fabricated board.

So, controlling the web is really the issue. Web thickness should not vary with board thickness. Look at IPC-2222 - Sectional Design Standard For Printed Board For Organic Printed Boards, page 14 for specific recommendations. You can purchase it from IPC [].

There are rcommendations of this and measuring the web in the fine SMTnet Archives.
