Advanced Circuits Reduces HDI Leadtimes
Aurora, CO – Advanced Circuits, Inc. announces the installation of a COBRA Hybrid Laser Via System at its facility in Tempe, Arizona. With the installation of the COBRA Hybrid Laser Via System Advanced Circuits is now able to produce quickturn microvia HDI PCBs in-house, reducing production leadtimes by half.
Alex Chandy, Director of Operations at Advanced Circuits, Tempe Division said: "The COBRA laser will allow us to enhance our technology and reduce leadtimes in manufacturing complex PCB's requiring microvias and machining. Having both the UV and IR lasers on one platform will allow for the highest precision of these small vias and machining on every job in production."
The Excellon COBRA Hybrid Laser System offers a large work area of 31 by 25 inches for those companies running larger panel prototypes and production PCB’s. The system uses CCD vision for precise alignment to the inner-layers.
Advanced Circuits continues to invest in the latest technology for their customers and with $9 million of capital investment in the last year they remain the frontrunner in the quickturn PCB industry.
