Low Cost Nibbler for Singulating Tab Routed Boards

Jul 30, 2009

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.

The N100 is provided with a quick connect pneumatic port which plugs directly into

factory air (80-100 PSI). Stepping on a foot pedal activates the cutting process. The

excess material from the tab is stored inside a compartment of the tool and can be

easily removed at the convenience of the operator. To see a video of the N100 and

other depaneling methods go to fknsystek.com.
