All Flex Expands Rigid-Flex Capabilities with Pluritec X-Ray Drill/Rout Optimizer


Reading time ( words)

All Flex, one of the country’s leading manufacturers of flexible printed circuit boards and flexible polyimide and silicone rubber heaters, has completed installation of a new Pluritec Inspecta HPL X-Ray Drill/Rout Optimizer. All Flex now has the ability to see targets on innerlayer cores after lamination, which dramatically improves accuracy for multilayer panels and rigid-flex designs.

HPL is a top of the line system equipped with X-ray camera, HD RGB vision camera, contact & linear depth control, 1,700-tool library and numerous advanced software features. Pluritec is excited to work with All Flex to add features and capabilities in the drilling and routing department to ensure quality, repeatability and reducing operator error and costs. Certification for All Flex’s new Pluritec Inspecta HPL X-Ray Drill/Rout Optimizer is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2018.

All Flex has also invested in two fully automated EVO-2S Dual-Spindle Drill/Rout systems that will complement the new HPL system to ensure increased accuracy and throughput. This brand new system will reduce variability with advanced automation and monitoring systems. This system is also helping to expand All Flex’s overall capacity and reduce lead times.

Gary Ryan, All Flex’s VP of operations, said, “These drills are a big step in advancing our rigid flex capabilities and increasing our overall capacity.”
