CirCut PCB VCut Depaneler / Separator
– Stress-free board separation

The Circut depaneler is designed to cleanly and effortlessly separate / depanel V-cut PCBs loaded with components.
As surface mounted components become smaller and more delicate, it is increasingly important to reduce distortion in the depaneling process. This reduces scrap rates and “in the field” failures, which are costly in terms of downtime, replacement and customer confidence.
