Low Cost Nibbler for Singulating Tab Routed Boards

Jan 25, 2017 | Singulating tab routed printed circuit cards in low to medium volume production quantities is safe and easy with the N100 Nibbler from FKN Systek. Blades are available in standard thicknesses of .120”, .093” and .062”. Custom sizes to match the width of the routed section can be ground. Tabs are cut cleanly on each side so that no further clean up is required to remove excess material, as is often the case when using hand tools or when breaking the panels manually. In addition, since only one tab is cut at a time, minimal stress is imparted to the board during the process as the panel is not pressed between two points during the cut.
