Aurora Circuits Launches Collaborative Webinar Series With Focus on Ultra-Heavy Copper PCBs

Reading time ( words)

Dr. Christopher Kalmus, president of Aurora Circuits, announced recently that Aurora Circuits is launching a new Collaborative Webinar Series with the first one being on ultra-heavy copper PCBs. The first webinar is live on August 12 from 12:002:45 p.m. CT.

Aurora Circuits, located in Aurora, Illinois, is one of the PCB industry’s leaders when it comes to producing heavy copper PCBs with capabilities to produce boards with over 20 ounces of copper. Ultra-heavy copper is the company's term for boards with anything over 15 ounces of copper.

The ultra-heavy copper webinar will cover: The advantages and uses for ultra-heavy copper in the PCB industry, and advancements in this technology; key uses cases and exactly how Aurora Circuits collaborates with designers and engineers across the world on this technology.

Presenters will be:

  • Dr. Chris Kalmus: President, Aurora Circuits
  • Thad Bartosz: Director of Business Development, Aurora Circuits
  • John Holmquest: Director of Engineering, Aurora Circuits
  • Brian Zirlin: Director of Sales and Marketing, Aurora Circuits
  • And special guest: Steve Taylor of Thermal Substrate Solutions.

When making this announcement, Dr. Kalmus said, “Heavy copper is a technology whose time has come. With the onset of Electronic and Autonomous vehicles and the advances in all technologies especially LED lighting, we have seen a huge uptick in the demand for heavy copper PCBs. We have designers and engineers calling us every day looking for more information about heavy copper technology which is why as a service to our industry we decided to produce this webinar. We hope that everyone who is interested in heavy copper, especially our ultra-heavy copper, will join us on August 12.

This Month in PCB007 Magazine: The Pillar Roadmap

09/16/2020 | Nolan Johnson, PCB007
As I spoke with Happy Holden about the four pillars of manufacturing, it became clear that they don’t stand on their own; they are intertwined. Happy pulls from his experience at Hewlett-Packard as he discusses benchmarking your capabilities, the competition, and market forces. He then turns that into a technology roadmap, which further drives the other pillars. Happy is adamant that to make all four pillars function properly in your business, you first need to benchmark your business and then create a roadmap. He says the roadmap identifies the specific functions required from the four pillars, and how each pillar supports the others.
