Methods of PCB Depaneling: From Manual to Laser

What is PCB Depaneling? PCB (printed circuit board) depaneling, also called singulation, is the process of removing numerous smaller, individual PCBs from a larger multi-PCB panel produced during manufacturing. The depaneling process was created in order to increase throughput of PCB manufacturing lines as circuit board sizes reduced. At CMS Laser, our depaneling process has […]

System Spotlight: Vision System Guidance for Laser Marking and Cutting

Accuracy and repeatability are frequently the guiding principles when vision systems are implemented. In today’s complex manufacturing lines, vision systems are an integral part of process accuracy, repeatability and quality control. We previously wrote about the four key features that every vision system must incorporate: cameras, lighting, optics, and software controls. In this post, we’ll […]

The Role Vision Systems Play in Industrial Laser Systems

Vision systems have been an integral part of manufacturing for decades; however, during that time the technology has improved immensely. They are useful (and in some cases, critical) across laser functions, including laser marking, drilling, etching and engraving. These days more than half of the laser systems built by CMS Laser incorporate some element of […]

Pre-and Post-Process Vision Integration Enhance Laser Manufacturing Processes

Vision systems are increasingly incorporated into laser machine tools to inspect, identify and guide laser processes. In its simplest iteration, readers can retrieve data from product labels or documentation to obtain information relevant to the laser process. Data strings can confirm the identity of the part; specify the quantity of parts to process or designate […]
