Production processes Europe
Producing with avant-garde technology
The creation of a printed circuit board is based on a vast range of knowledge: photography, electronics, mechanics, chemistry, metallurgy, and galvanizing. It requires the use of sophisticated software, different specific processes, and many materials: from laminates to resins, from photosensitive films to metal alloys.
Our expertise with each of these elements and the use of avant-garde, high-tech machines allows us to respond to the continuing evolution of electronics and the ever changing demands of the printed electronic circuit market.
Solder Spray Line
Spray technology for a solder mask that is perfectly uniform and adherent to the PCB surface. The spray technique that has been used in our factory for years has today seen an important improvement that increases the efficiency of the production department, and guarantees an even higher quality product.
Excellent Solder mask adhesion
We continue to pursue our philosophy of continuous improvement aimed at bringing high-tech production and management into every area of the company. One of our latest investments is the installation of a new automatic robotized line, the MECetchBOND CZ, which, by means of a chemical-mechanical process, treats laminated surfaces in order to guarantee the maximum surface adhesion.
Orbotech Nuvogo 1000
It’s called NUVOGO 1000 and it is the latest generation of Direct Imaging stations produced by Orbotech. Installed in a 10,000 class clean room and custom built to create an ideal and continuously decontaminated environment, NUVOGO 1000 “designs” the image of the inner layer, the outer layer directly on the photosensitive film with multi-wave laser modules. The machine can also be used for the direct photoimaging of the solder mask.
Automatic V-cut process
Maximum accuracy in finishing the PCB thanks to the perfection of our new SHODA TECHTRON, a Japanese technology for high precision V-cut scoring, and chosen to enhance our mechanical finishing department.
High precision micro-perforators - Pluritec Evo
The best technology for micro-drilling and controlled depth drilling. These micro-drills are equipped with a CCD camera for perfectly centring the multi-layering, and a laser for checking the drilling tools.
• Precision micro-drilling up to 0.1 mm.
• Controlled drilling and depth +/-15 micron.
Orbotech InSight PCB Software / Ucamco Integrator
InSight PCB is a web-based tool for automatically managing and evaluating the customer’s project data. It generates a report with complete information on the requested product and a “feasibility” summary, allowing those who manage the commercial part to work independently, accurately, and efficiently.
Orbotech Inkjet Sprint 120
Digital printing machine with optical centring for realizing the white topographical symbology of the components of QR Codes, Data Matrixes, and Barcodes, and also SEQUENTIALLY, Sprint 120 inkjet offers the best definition on the market today, with 720/1440 dpi and the possibility of printing characters 0.5 mm high with 75 micron lines, and an accuracy of +/- 35 microns.
16 probe electrical testing system machine with automatic centring via CCD video cameras, with Soft Touch ranging from 5g to 15g, and Kelvin Test, up to a maximum of 250 Volts. The ATG A6 tests a pad from a minimum of 35 microns to a rate of 75 microns, and with automated loading /unloading of the circuits.
Orbotech AOI Discovery 8200 & Fusion 20
Both the machines used for optical checking and verifying the conformity between the tracks of the inner/outer layers of the circuit and the respective gerber files. The high resolution video camera with which the machines are equipped allows checking tracks of less than 50 microns.
Hi tech std photoimaging process
The Afosa Ies-CA8 is an aligned lighted photoimaging machine with automatic recording data that, using 4 CCD cameras, automatically expose the film on the production panel in high definition. It is a standard component used in the production of the Solder Resist Mask.
MacDermid Shadow Chemical Process
Process for metalizing of the holes that allows for increasing the propagation of the electrolytic copper in the galvanizing by 30%, micro-engraving only 4 microns of copper on the inner sides of the multi-layering. It allows you to achieve certain results above all on products with a large number of holes, on micro-drilling and blind drilling.
Orbotech Cam Genesis Software
The Cam Station allows you to check, and correct when necessary and with the customer’s agreement, the data furnished by the customer itself, thus ensuring the highest quality of the finished product. The software allows for automatically processing the files for all the equipment necessary for producing printed circuit board: photo-plotters, drilling machines, AOI, Inkjets, and testing machines.
MacDermid HiSpec 2 high penetration baths
We have added this bath to guarantee the maximum amount of copper in the small-diameter holes and an optimal distribution of the contact points in the circuits with unbalanced copper areas.
Pluritec Inspecta Diamond RX
Machine with X-ray video-camera for centring and compensating reference targets for multi-layer drilling.
All suitable for micro-drilling and controlled depth drilling, with CCD camera for centring multilayer PCBs, and lasers for controlling the drilling tools. Automatic loading/unloading of the panels to be drilled with a barcode reader for loading the drilling files and relative parameters.
