Looking into options besides routing for a .032" thick board with components located near edges. Has anyone ever tried water jet cutting or other technologies for a high volume, high mix environment.

I have implemented water jet into production for very high volumes (8M/mo). High mix is no problem. 707-750-1044

Have you considered singulation? It uses a press and a peculiar die to seperate the useful cicuit from the panel. Suppliers include: * Wand 847-459-2400 F2421 * Circuit Technology 708-705-2140 f2141 John Bambule * Pioneer - Dietecs 781-682-7900 F03

For everything you wanted to know about waterjeting, look here: http://www.waterjets.org Goto page 9 of the 'picture pages' for some chopped-up circuit boards. There is at least 70 equipment suppliers out there. So, having someone that has cut th

Thanks davef, but having worked in the metal industry for years, I was wondering how someone would actually use a water jet to cut PCBs? I know it can cut them, but all water jets use an abrasive in the water. So, this would seem a rather "dirty" p

We currently have 32 LEDs per board and are looking to change the LED from a gull wing package to another package. (possibly a chip type package). I have heard that some cases and LEDs do not like reflow. This part is not cost effective to have to pu
