The K4000 Motorized linear blade depanelizer is available in 18” to 48” versions. Separating skip scored V-Scored PCB panels up to 48" long is made simple and easy with the K4000 PCB depanelizer from FKN Systek. Just place the bottom scoreline of the PCB onto the linear blade and step on a guarded foot switch to bring the circular blade across the top scoreline for clean separation of the PCB panels. Right and left blade guards assure operator safety. The front and back support and take up table are height adjustable.
The K4000 L18 and K4000 L24 are available with optional light beam safety curtain across the front of the blades for additional operator safety, as well as an optional esd safe belt conveyor to bring singulated PCBs to the side for easy removal. An infrared sensor on the end of the conveyor will stop the belt for PCBs with components on them. Scrap pieces will pass underneath the sensor beam into a discard bin.
The K4000L36 IS available with adjustable support brackets on the input side. . Adjustable board stops on the back side speed up score-line to blade alignment.
FKN Systek depanelizers are made in the USA. Tooling and in-line systems are available upon request. Blades are made of long lasting tool steel and can be resharpened several times

After two days of presentations, panel discussions, and impromptu hallway conversation at the IPC Advanced Packaging Symposium, one thing became clear: There is an urgency to support advanced packaging in all regions across the globe. The symposium, Oct. 11-12 in Washington, D.C., concluded with what seemed to be a great deal of expanded perspective for those who attended.

I-Connect007 has been bringing you interviews with a variety of technologists who attended last month's productronica show in Munich, Germany. As part of our continuing coverage of productronica 2021, we present this exclusive slide show of photos taken by our good friend Alun Morgan, technology ambassador for Ventec International Group and a fantastic photographer in his own right. Rumor has it that Lufthansa made him buy a separate seat for that giant camera of his.

"The Innovators: How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution" by Walter Isaacson is the best technology history book I have ever read, and at the same time one of the most engaging and entertaining. It is a forte of Isaacson to write biographies of great people. I have read his other books on DaVinci, Steve Jobs, Ben Franklin and Albert Einstein and found them equally brilliant. Isaacson has a number of other titles I have yet to get to in the future. He is a singularly great storyteller.
