Scribe lines for depaneling boards
Is there any standard or recommended specification used by board manufacturers for the depth of the scribe lines used to depanel boards? Appreciate your insight.
|Expert Panel Responses|
The specifications tend to be based on the web thickness (board remaining) rather then the depth of the scribe lines. I good place to go is Vscore Central.

The document you are looking for is IPC-2222, Sectional Design Standard for Rigid Organic Printed Boards. Page 14 Fig 5-2 Provides all the information you will need to determine the Scoring parameters for depaneling the boards.

A 30% score depth on each side should work. Pay attention to alignment of the two "V" cuts.
