MSC Polymer AG has launched a new precision milling machine, helping users to reduce microsectioning down to only two process steps. With the patented machinery, even drilled holes of less than 100μm can be safely and automatically examined.
Previously, microsectioning of such small drilled holes required largely manual work of experienced laboratory staff. With the new system, staff with no experience can be trained to operate it within 15 minutes.

A printed circuit board is populated with a multitude of electro-mechanical components plus various active and passive devices such as transistors, capacitors, inductors and resistors, which enable the functionality and assembly of the PCB. Increasing the density of the components on the surface of a board enables greater functionality and use.
