LPKF to Exhibit at IPC APEX Expo 2018


Reading time ( words)

LPKF Laser & Electronics will be exhibiting at the IPC APEX Expo in San Diego, California in booth 1241 this year, demonstrating their PCB depaneling and flex PCB drilling laser systems. 

The MicroLine 5000 is equipped for high through-put, high-yielding PCB drilling applications. Common applications include the drilling of through holes and blind vias, with the additional ability to cut large mounting holes, or full perimeter cuts of irregular board contours. Available with multiple power options, the MicroLine 5000 series may also be configured to work with various material handling options.

The MicroLine 2000 is a compact system, developed for cutting PCB panels and cover layers. It reduces lead times and eliminates tooling costs of layout changes. The substrates are held securely on a vacuum table. This is ideal for depaneling, cutting and engraving a variety of substrates (cover layers, rigid, flex and rigid/flex). UV laser cutting systems display their advantages at various positions in the production chain. With complex electronic components, the processing of flat materials is sometimes required. In that case, the UV laser reduces the lead time and total costs with every new product layout.

LPKF will also feature information about its laser plastic welding systems. Laser plastic welding technology is a stress-free method of joining plastics, used for electronic enclosures to protect sensitive parts. The improved design methodology and automation result in cost reduction and yield improvements in production lines.

In addition to these systems, LPKF will also be demonstrating its rapid PCB prototyping technology. For more information on LPKF’s latest laser-based solutions, visit LPKF in booth 1241 at the 2018 IPC APEX Expo.

EIPC Summer Conference 2022: Day 1 Review

06/28/2022 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
At last, a live EIPC conference and this time in the Swedish city of Örebro, “where history and contemporary culture converge,” a pleasant and convenient location for an event that included a privileged visit to the Ericsson facility in Kumla. Around 100 delegates made the journey and the Örebro Scandic Grand Hotel was an excellent conference venue for the June 14-15 conference.

PCB Plating Still Comes Down to Physics

06/21/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
We asked columnist Michael Carano to discuss the latest innovations in plating equipment and chemicals, as well as some of the drivers in this segment, and the biggest challenges and opportunities he sees in plating today. As Michael points out, despite all of the technological advances in this industry, process engineers still need a solid understanding of Faraday’s Law and Ohm’s Law to successfully plate PCBs.

Review: Institute of Circuit Technology 2022 Annual Symposium

06/15/2022 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
The British Motor Museum in Warwickshire, housing the world's largest collection of historic British cars, was venue for the 2022 Annual Symposium of the Institute of Circuit Technology on June 8, which attracted a substantial gathering of manufacturers and suppliers from the UK printed circuit industry. ICT chair Emma Hudson reflected upon lessons learned during the pandemic lock-down and how the industry has successfully adapted to circumstances. She commented that the UK’s PCB fabricators are extremely busy, as she introduced an outstanding conference programme including a keynote from the incomparable Happy Holden.
