Every printed circuit board is distinguished by its specific shape. Shaping is done towards the end of the circuit board manufacturing. It involves either – routing or V scoring or the combination of both. Many times, machining is performed to conduct cut-outs, and apertures in the printed circuit board before the final assembly.
PCB Profiling Capabilities of Twisted Traces
Profiling is performed to cut a PCB out of the production panel. We use a computer managed router to create internal cut outs on the production panel. The cutter follows a pre-defined path. In the next stage, the milling machine head fitted with a suitable cutter is run through the production panel. The machine head is fitted with a vacuum controlled brush that removes the small particles produced during the profiling. The circuits formed on the production panel are separated by small material bridges. Drilling is performed to separate the PCB, and the production panel.
The following PCB Profiling capabilities have helped us serve our clients better:
|Punch Tolerance||±5 Mil|
|CNC Tolerance||±5 Mil|
|V-CUT Tol||±10 Mil|
|Bevel Edges||±5 Mil|
|Slot Min||32 Mil|
|Angle||15°, 20°, 30°, 45°, 60°|
At Twisted Traces, we allow clients to decide the shape for their PCB. Shape of the PCB is one of the factors, which adds up to the final costs. The rectangle is the most effective shapes because it can be fitted on a production panel. Also, this shape yields maximum utilization. We get maximum orders for rectangular shaped PCBs.
