edge clearance for inline equipment

edge clearance for inline equipment | 1 October, 2003

I was wondering if anybody could tell me what a good clearance would be for board designs to allow for the use of inline equipment? My company currently runs a batch line but I want to make sure we are designing properly for inline if the need arises.

Brad- The Spec can be downloaded free from IPC at http://www.smema.org/smema1.2.pdf (or IPC.org search for SMEMA Standards).

As per Conveyor edge clearance should be .187" or 4.7mm.
