Pioneer-Dietecs Corporation offers a complete line of stress-free, press-based PCB depaneling systems for close tolerance singulating of both tab-routed and v-scored printed circuit boards. Pioneer presses range from simple, manually-operated benchtop models, to automatic shuttle table models.
Pioneer-Dietecs depaneling presses are all-pneumatic with Pioneer’s proven air-logic systems for semi-automatic cycle of the die ram. They are inexpensive to hook-up and no electricity is required. Pneumatic presses are clean room safe…no messy hydraulic oil.
Pneumatic systems are very popular where technical staff may not be readily available for programming and maintaining more complicated PLC controlled systems. Palm buttons trigger the operation, shuttling the lower die plate on THK linear guide rails into the press.
Our unique floating die plates eliminate time consuming die installation and expensive setup costs typically required for close tolerance registration. Dies can safely singulate within ½ mm of ceramic components and fine trace lines with no stress or strain to adversely affect fragile PCB’s for semiconductors or other delicate applications. Works equally well on skip-tab-routed or v-scored arrays.
First, an operator registers the panel on tooling-hole pin locators on the lower die plate. Closing a cover triggers the operation, shuttling the lower die plate on linear guide rails into the press. After depaneling takes place, the shuttle table automatically returns to the home position and the cover opens, allowing the operator to remove the singulated PCB’s. The entire cycle, loading to unloading, takes as little as four to six seconds.

Designed specifically for cleanrooms, Pioneer cleanroom PCB depaneling presses are all pneumatic and built with our proprietary air-logic system for clean, quiet operation.
The cleanroom depaneling press features a NEMA pneumatics enclosure that’s water-tight, environmentally secure, and sturdy to protect against dust, splashing water, wash-downs, and other contamination. Cleanroom depaneling presses are available in standard sizes or can be built to any size with custom features available to meet your requirements.
Cleanroom Press Design Specifications
Pneumatic components enclosed in a waterproof box
Cleanroom Press hardware is stainless steel, anodized aluminum or powder-coated steel
All exhaust air connected to an external tank with check valve
The external tank has a pressure gauge attached with two exhaust output ports for venting outside the cleanroom.
The S2000 press lends itself easily to in-line integration. The top of the press can be easily removed to have robotic access to the lower shuttle table for pick & place of arrays and singulated PCBs.
In the photo to the left, singulated PCBs are being removed by the robot with the S2000 press in the rear of the cell behind the robot.Request Quote
