IMI Installs Schmoll Modul High Speed Drill System


Reading time ( words)

IMI, Inc. announced today that they have acquired a Schmoll Modul Single Spindle drilling machine. This sophisticated drilling system will add to IMI’s capability and will enable IMI to continue to offer world-class drilling registration on higher layer count product as well as when fabricating on demanding PTFE laminates.

The Modul has upgraded spindle and a CCD micro focus camera system to enable tighter and more precise registration even when drilling the tightest tolerances anywhere on the panel or within the circuitry.

Peter Bigelow, President & CEO commented, “The addition of this state-of-the art Drilling system will allow IMI to produce even higher technology product significantly faster than with our current technology. We chose this Schmoll system because of its solid track record and user friendliness, which assure our being able to continue to support the requirements, of our world-class customers faster and more efficiently.”

Vertical Conductive Structures, Part 1: Rethinking Sequential Lamination

05/13/2019 | Joan Tourné, NextGIn Technology BV
Sequential lamination, as it is used today in high density interconnect (HDI) and derivative technologies, is constrained by the fact that one cannot plate a blind hole deeper than the diameter of the hole. A larger hole allows processes to plate deeper. In fact, this manufacturing constraint has made it a challenge even to reliably plate and process blind holes up to a 1:1 aspect ratio.
