Insulectro to Distribute Indubond Lamination Presses from Chemplate Materials SL

Reading time ( words)

Insulectro, the largest distributor of materials for use in manufacture of printed circuit board and printed electronics, has announced it will distribute InduBond® lamination presses and supplies manufactured by Chemplate Materials SL of Barcelona, Spain.

“Today we are announcing Insulectro will begin distributing the complete InduBond® equipment product line in North America beginning today,” Insulectro Vice President of Sales and Product Management Ken Parent commented, “This is an exciting opportunity for us to bring these world-class presses to our customers – in particular the X-PRESS 360 lamination press which is Chemplate’s flagship offering. It is one more example of Insulectro’s laser focus on supplying our customers with the best product offerings – materials and equipment - available.”

InduBond® has long been respected for tight accuracy in registration, its lamination presses, automation (automatic loading/unloading), and its eco-friendly best practices.

InduBond® X-PRESS lamination presses utilize a different way of producing the heat required for lamination using standard pressing methods. The innovation of this technology is that it produces heat on the laminated material, and only the laminated material, of each layer of the press pack at the same time, at the same temperature level, without any thermal conduction.

That feature means the press pack heating is perfectly uniform in all directions. Consequently, all the layers of the laminates inside the press have the same temperature profile at the same time. With our induction technology, heating speed is increased, and high temperatures can be reached. Insulectro will also stock replacement parts and consumables for InduBond® equipment.

“Chemplate Materials SL looks forward to this new association with Insulectro in North America,” stated Victor Lazaro Gallego, Technical Director and InduBond® inventor at Chemplate Materials, S.L. “We find Insulectro’s innovative approach to sales and service to be a perfect match for our company’s values and products. The goal of our current strategy is the global market as a key element in the company`s growth. And that is why we want to keep innovating and providing the industry with new technologies that set us apart from our competitors and increase the knowledge and acceptance of the InduBond® commercial brand internationally.”

Chemplate Materials SL was established in 1986 in the electroplating business. Nowadays is a company focused on manufacturing equipment for registering PCB multilayers with an innovative process, covering the registry and the press process. They have developed a technology with a big growth potential and continuously upgrade it. They also sell chemical processes for electroplating and PCB manufacturing.

In 2020, IPC EXPO conferred an INNOVATION AWARD to the InduBond® X-PRESS line in the category of PCB FABRICATION for the concept in multilayer press technology of utilizing electromagnetic energy to heat stainless steel separator plates.

“Expect to hear more from us about this exciting new market opportunity for Insulectro and its customers” Ken Parent concluded, “World-class products from world-class suppliers, delivered at breakneck speed from regional distribution centers, coupled with ‘always there’ customer service - it's all about enabling customers to build better circuits faster.”

Insulectro supplies advanced engineered materials manufactured by Isola, DuPont®, LCOA®, CAC, Inc., Pacothane, Focus Tech Chemicals, JX Nippon, TADCO, EMD Performance Materials, Shikoku, Denkai America, Industrial Brush Corporation, Kemmer, and Shur-loc. These products are used by its customers to fabricate complex, multilayer circuit boards and to manufacture printed electronics components. Insulectro serves a broad customer base manufacturing rigid, rigid/flex and flexible circuit boards for applications in a variety of end markets including aeronautics, telecom, data communications, high speed computing, mobile devices, military, and medical. Insulectro combines its premier product offering with local inventory across North America, fabrication capabilities and backed up by expert customer and technical support services.

The big news in the industry this week was the new bill introduced to the U.S. Congress in support of the PCB manufacturing industry. The Supporting American Printed Circuit Boards Act of 2022, which was introduced by Reps. Anna Eshoo (D-CA) and Blake Moore (R-UT), incentivizes “purchases of domestically produced PCBs as well as industry investments in factories, equipment, workforce training, and research and development.” The bill is a PCB-oriented complement to the semiconductor-oriented CHIPS Act of 2021.
