Sunstone Upgrades Capabilities by Adding New Orbotech LDI


Reading time ( words)

Sunstone Circuits has just announced the addition of the Paragon-9800, the latest in laser direct imaging equipment from Orbotech, to its Oregon manufacturing facility.

“With the electronics industry continually requiring smaller and denser PCBs, with tighter manufacturing tolerances, Sunstone Circuits is again responding by adding necessary manufacturing technology to meet these needs. In our business of quick turnaround, high-tech US manufactured PCB prototyping, we are thrilled to be able to invest in equipment that streamlines our process, and improves our capabilities and quality.” said Sunstone’s Director of Operations, Nancy Viter.

The recently installed Paragon-9800 is providing Sunstone with additional imaging capacity, capability and environmental improvements.  The combination of high depth-of-focus (≥300µm), accuracy (+/- 10µ), high resolution capability (25µm/ 1 mil) and Dynamic imaging modes means Sunstone will continue to stay ahead of the PCB technology curve. The digital printing format of the Paragon-9800 allows Sunstone to continue to lower waste generation, and reduce both process time and costs as compared to the additional processes required by classic imaging techniques. “I am excited about of moving to digital imaging, it has positive impacts on both quality and waste,” said Ed Graham Sunstone’s Environmental Health and Safety Manager, “which will benefit Sunstone, our customers and the environment as a whole.”
