The Murray Percival Company, the leading supplier to the Midwest’s electronics industry, today announced the sale of a SCHUNK SAR 1300 BD2 depaneling machine to Amphenol Borisch. The sale was facilitated by Murray Percival’s own Dave Meert.

“Our previous router system required too much support for NPI and tooling,” commented Steve Black, SMT Engineering Manager for Amphenol Borisch.  “The SAR 1300 BD2 offers the flexibility and robustness that we were looking for and has increase our quality and lowered labor content.”

The depaneling machine SAR 1300 BD2 and the other SAR variants offer the user the option of replacing conventional manual cutting processes such as rotary knives, parallel knives, side cutters or punching devices with an inexpensive, low-stress, machine-based milling or sawing process. The depaneling device can be used both as a separating cell in a one-piece flow production and as a central depaneling device for small to medium-sized batches. The stand-alone device is particularly characterized by its excellent price-performance ratio: Low investment and at the same time high milling accuracy and travel speeds thanks to SCHUNK’s own linear motor axes.
