How does PCB Fabrication panelize PCBs for the customers?|
Just send the files for an individual board and tell us what you need, and then PCB Fabrication engineers will panelize it for you, it is FREE.
What are the dimensions of a standard panel? I need to figure out how many of my circuit boards will fit on a panel for my online quote.
We do not have the dimensions of a standard panel. But unless necessary, for PCB best quality control and pricing, we recommend the panel length or width is between 5 to 12.5 inches.
A question regarding for Panelize PCBs. (Populate multiple PCBs on a panel).
Example, if I have an array of 4 x 5 small PCBs, Do I send the Gerber files with the array and choose "Panel Gerber Customer Panelize"?
Or Should I just submit a single board Gerber and let your engineer to panelize for me and choose this "Mfr Panelize Gerber for You"?
If you need your PCB panelization any special, you need to panelize the Gerber files in your way, and email Your Paneled Gerber files to us after you quote with "Panel Gerber Customer Panelized" selection. My company will use your panel Gerber files to fabricate the panel PCBs for you directly.
If you do not need the panelization any special, the easiest way is just quote with "Mfr Panelize Gerber for You" selection and email the Single Board Gerber files to us, so my company engineers can panelize the PCBs in standard way and fabricate the PCBs for you.
When I send over a single board and let you guys build the array, how do I get the paste files so I can get a panel stencil made?
If your single board file package includes the paste files, soon after my company engineers panelize the Gerber files after you place your PCB order, we will email the paste panel Gerber files back to you, so you can use the panel paste files make the PCB panel stencils.
Please be advised that my company also provides "Laser Cut Stainless Steel PCB Stencil Service". Here is the PCB Stencil Quote Online webpage link.
