The Bohan cropping machine was designed and developed following extensive
research into the problems associated with the removal of printed circuit boards
from routed panels by hand.
The main features of the machine are the virtual elimination of both induced
stress in panels and components and the de-lamination of boards during cropping.
A foot operated switch allows easier and more accurate positioning of PCBs
by the operative, whilst a safety device ensures that only bridges are cut
- the machine will not operate with a solid object under the cutter.
Low maintenance and adaptability also greatly increase productivity. The Bohan Cropping
Machine has already led to a dramatic reduction in cracked components and operator
fatigue in production lines throughout the UK.
Removes support bridges up to 4mm long x 2.4mm wide from populated and unpopulated
PCBs Minimal stress and de-lamination, even on multilayer types Safety
feature ensures only bridges are cut Cuts up to 1000 bridges per hour (based
on customer reports) Large chad waste tray 'Hands free' foot switch
With proper use and fair wear and tear, the standard 2.35mm blade will give
up to 800000 cuts Blade changing time: 15 minutes Die changing time:
5 minutes Options available blade/die sets for slots 1.6mm to 3.2mm wide
Operates from 80 psi (6 Bar) air supply Size: 420 x 480 x 235mm
