Reading time ( words)

Excellon announces the installation of an HS-2L Intelli-Drill System at Bay Area Circuits, Inc. of Fremont, California.

The Excellon HS-2L Intelli-Drill System provides capabilities such as post lamination tooling optimization for multi-layers, zone drilling and routing relative to surface targets and features such as surface sense depth control and reverse spindle rotation that set it apart from the competition. The fast and accurate axis positioning system uses linear motor technology making quick work of large panels up to 28 by 32 inches.

“We are excited with the addition of the HS-2L to Bay Area Circuits current drill process. Having the flexibility of another Intelli-Drill Vision System with the added two spindles will enhance the technology and turn-around time of complex PCB's,” said Stephen Garcia, president, Bay Area Circuits.

Mike Sparidaens, vice president of sales at Excellon, stated: "Having partnered with Bay Area Circuits since the 1970's Excellon looks forward to the implementation of the HS-2L Intelli-Drill System as well as being a part of Bay Area Circuit's high technology facility for years to come.”

Time, Space, Structure, and Model Analysis of CCL Price Increase

04/19/2021 | Hu Yang, Zhongtai Securities Research Center
According to the CCL Association, copper foil accounts for the largest proportion of raw materials (traditional CCL uses epoxy resin, glass fiber cloth and copper as raw materials). Copper foil in thin plate accounts for about 30% of the overall cost; in thick plate copper accounts for 50%. In CCL production, using Shengyi Technology and Chaohua Technology as examples, the cost of raw materials accounts for about 88% of the total cost, with labor accounting for about 4%. Other costs such as equipment depreciation account for about 8%.

PCB Sourcing Using PCQR2

03/30/2021 | Al Block, Naji Norder, and Chris Joran, National Instruments
In a global market, it is often difficult to determine the best PCB suppliers for your technology needs, while also achieving the lowest costs for your products. Considering each PCB supplier has their own niche in terms of equipment, process, and performance, uniform test data from the IPC-9151D Process Capability, Quality, and Relative Reliability (PCQR2) Benchmark Test Standard can help find the right source for the board based on its specific technology requirements.
