Some Knowledge About PCB Board Panelization

A key to saving money on PCB manufacturing during the design phase is to optimize the usable area available for each standard manufacturing panel.

Some manufacturers suggest that you put a number of different circuits on the same panel to improve material utilization and reduce manufacturing costs. At wonderful PCB Limited, we do this automatically as part of our pooling process, so there is no need for you to waste valuable design time. Of course you can suggest us your idea of panel size.

Penalization will do much help for the assembly process. If your layout uses SMD components we automatically panelized a solder-paste layer which you can download as a Gerber file for stencil manufacture. We can generate the paste files from the SMD pads on a "best-efforts" basis but it is not always clear to us which pads to include and which to leave out. So we recommend that you check these files before you use them. It is much safer to generate a paste file yourself and include it in the data you send us. We will then check it with the rest of the data and step and repeat it into the same assembly panel.

There are several ways to panelization of the PCB boards. Normally by V-cut, stamp hole and routing. No matter what kind of method you want, we can make it for you. And we can offer you the best solution. Manufactur ability rules: (1) Minimum dimension of the single PCB is 5 by 5 mm. (2) Maximum panel dimensions on the Verified and Verified Plus service is 250 x 350 mm.

Here are some of the PCB boards that in Panel for your reference.
First one is by V-cut and routing, the second is by stamp hole.
