Cirexx Adds to Excellon Cobra Laser Fleet


Reading time ( words)

Cirexx International has acquired and installed a fifth Excellon Cobra laser machine.  The hybrid Laser and is equipped with both CO2 and UV laser technology.  It is designed to “drill” holes, “rout” profiles and micro-machine fine features in printed circuit boards and specifically flex circuits.  The machine comes with the upgraded controller, latest software, High Speed Intelligent Scanners and variable power high pulse energy lasers.

Mike Sparidaens of Excellon said, “Cirexx is realizing the benefits from the enhanced technology of this next generation Cobra-II laser.  As our product evolves, we look forward to continue being part of Cirexx's technology roadmap for many years to come.” 

Philipp Menges, Cirexx President/CEO commented, “We began using the COBRA lasers to make fine and very accurate features in flex circuits, but we are using them more and more these days to make micro vias in HDI boards.  The quality and reliability of Excellon machines means to me that they will be running like workhorses without downtime.  Add the outstanding Excellon service that we receive from Mike and his team, and we have a true win-win.”
