Abstract

A technique is described whereby a single nine-stroke snapping tool provides the ability to separate laminates into nine individual substrates. The tool is an improvement over other methods, such as single separation, in that it provides fast and accurate substrate separation and eliminates the need for any sizing operations. (Image Omitted)
