Rigid-flex circuit board manufacturer, Printed Circuits Inc. has recently installed a Maskless Lithography printer and an Orbotech Paragon 9800 laser direct imager at their facility based in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The new printers give PCi advanced capabilities for imaging innerlayers, outerlayers and soldermask on advanced technology PWBs.
Steve Hanson, PCi's Engineering Manager commented "having both systems in place gives us a tremendous increase in flexibility and processing ability. Every photoresist and soldermask that is available responds to different wavelengths of light. Having both exposure systems allows us to pick the best photoresist or mask for the application, and then pick the best piece of equipment to image it. That flexibility will advance our technology capabilities while improving our capacity at the same time."
Printed Circuit Inc. President and CEO, Ken Tannehill commented, "The installation of the Maskless and Orbotech printers are the next step in our effort to provide our customers with advanced technology, at higher yields, quality and throughput, while reducing their over-all costs.”
