Cirexx International announced today that they have acquired and installed two OEM (Orange Engineering Manufacturing) high temperature lamination press systems. The presses have 24” X 30” platens in a vacuum-assist chamber and are capable of reaching 600°C. These two machines bring to three the number of high temperature lamination presses in operation at Cirexx. The higher laminating temperatures allow for the processing of advanced materials required for printed wiring boards used in Oil & Gas Exploration, Military Vehicle & Aircraft, Radar & Navigation and Autoclave susceptible applications.
Philipp Menges, President and CEO of Cirexx said, “We worked very closely with DuPont on the development of their HT materials and consequently are the go-to vendor for these applications. We have also seen a significant increase in the requirement for higher lamination temperatures in exotic high-frequency materials application.” With the vacuum-assist the systems are very efficient and extremely “flex-friendly,” producing excellent lamination integrity throughout the PWB stack up regardless of construction.
Menges added, “The investment in these presses represents Cirexx’s commitment to remaining at the forefront of technology while continuing to offer quick turn services. Our rigid-flex circuits made with the HT materials and laminated in a high-temp press are bulletproof.”
