Aismalibar Underscores Commitment to Sustainability

Reading time ( words)

Aismalibar has taken a step forward in terms of environmental sustainability by installing photovoltaic panels on the roof of its Barcelona plant.

Green energy is a priority for Aismalibar and this installation allows the company to generate sustainable power for self-consumption. To date, this generated force represents one third of the energy necessary for the operation of the factory.

According to the data of the Solar Energy Institute of the Polytechnic University of Madrid, at the end of 2017 in Spain, 4.5GW of photovoltaic were installed, placing the country in the 10th position worldwide. The same year, photovoltaic energy accounted for 3.1% of national electricity demand, so we are still talking about a residual presence of this type of energy in the Spanish scenario.

The investment in sustainable energy is in fact a commitment not to compromise the needs of future generations, but the global alarm in terms of environmental pollution, require a firm commitment to improve the production processes of industries.

The response to this situation is not limited to the Aismalibar plant, but the Benmayor Group has other companies linked to sectors such as health or the automotive industry and totals more than 1MW of photovoltaic installations. The data collected indicate that with self-generated green energy, the Benmayor Group covers more than 50% of the electricity consumption of its production plants.

About Aismalibar

Founded in 1934 and based in Barcelona, Spain, Aismalibar manufactures high end copper and metal clad laminates for the printed circuit board industry. Aismalibar’s expertise lies in offering the best solutions to reduce the operational temperature of the printed circuit boards. Aismalibar materials ensure quality and reliability of all the products that incorporate them. Aismalibar has implemented a 100% proof test with 1-3KV (high pot test) to every IMS laminate that is produced. These materials minimize the use of supplementary fans or heat sinks, thus reducing production costs. Aismalibar now operates globally through several subsidiaries. Our priorities are now, and have always been technological innovation and customer satisfaction.

Vertical Conductive Structures, Part 3: Design Tool Techniques

08/23/2019 | Ed Hickey and Mike Catrambone, Cadence Design Systems, and Joan Tourné, Nextgin Technology
New vertical conductive structure (VeCS) technology can reduce layer count and improve signal integrity without the need for sequential technologies. VeCS is different than traditional through-hole vias, microvias, and ELIC designs, which are more expensive and require a high number of laminations, drilling, and plating cycles to build up a reasonable number of layers.

Solder Mask Curing: UV Bump Overview

08/19/2019 | Nikolaus Schubkegel
Ultraviolet (UV) bump, also called UV cure, is a processing step in which the solder mask pattern is irradiated with ultraviolet and infrared light. This step is performed with special equipment that is built as a continuous flow system, which consists of a conveyor belt and tubular UV lamps mounted above and below the belt. Read on to find out more about this process.

Avoiding CAF Failures at the IPC High-reliability Forum
