Panelisation and Rapid Stepped Data Approval

When designing and manufacturing printed circuit boards, at Momentum Circuits we strive to provide all of our customers with the most efficient and effective product for them which is why every one of our PCBs is bespoke and customer approved.

The PCBs provided by Momentum Circuits are all either single circuits, with or without waste strips for handling, or panelised, depending on their intended use and requirements. The final panelisations are always sent back for customer approval and data archiving purposes, and we always favour working with a single image circuit to allows us the freedom to panelise to the best commercial fit.

When panelising our printed circuit boards, we select each customers’ preferred options from all of the following:

  • Solderable finish
  • Colour and finish of solder resist
  • Design and placement of fiducials within the scrap or on individual boards for the high accuracy placement of small pitch devices
  • Machined holes where required or permitted
  • Waste strip position and dimensions
  • UL traceability code and rating
  • Week number and year code for stock rotation and traceability
  • Solderability indicators in waste strips
  • Part number and issue numbers in either the silkscreen layer or within the copper features
  • Copper cross-hatching, dot patterns or flood fills in scrap areas to achieve equilibrium across the PCB

When quoting our PCBs, we therefore include a number of panelisation options to suit your specified requirements to ensure we are offering you the most efficient, and subsequently most cost-effective product for you. While we can match an existing panelisation layout if required, we often find that the cost advantage of panelising a board bespoke to suit its specific raw materials offers much larger cost savings in the long run.
