SOMACIS Invests in Orbotech's Nuvogo 800 Direct Imaging


Reading time ( words)

Miniaturization, flexibility and turnaround time are important drivers for the developments in PCB production. To continue to build on its position as one of the leading PCB manufacturers of high-tech PCBs, SOMACIS has purchased the latest Nuvogo 800 Direct Imaging (DI) system for its main plant in Castelfidardo, Italy.

Nuvogo 800 is a next-generation Direct Imaging solution capable of imaging on almost every resist type, affording maximum flexibility to PCB makers. Powered by MultiWave Laser Technology, Nuvogo 800 generates a multi wavelength laser beam for optimal line structure. This provides PCB manufacturers the ability to choose lower-cost resist types in order to further reduce total operating costs.

This high-productivity machine is able to achieve up to 7,000 panels/day/line at unprecedented quality. Superior line quality and registration accuracy is achieved through Orbotech's field-proven Large Scan Optics (LSO) Technology. Suitable for the most advanced HDI production, with a resolution of 18µm lines and spaces, Nuvogo 800 ensures a high depth-of-focus critical for maximizing yields in increasingly challenging production environments. The combination of super high-productivity, flexibility to use almost any resist and unmatched yields results in the lowest possible cost-per-print and significantly lowers the system's total cost of ownership.

Flex Time: Why is Rigid-Flex So Expensive?

07/11/2018 | Bob Burns, PRINTED CIRCUITS
One question that I hear fairly often, particularly after an initial quotation, is “Why is rigid-flex so expensive?” In this article, I’ll share with designers the cost drivers in rigid-flex relative to standard rigid boards and flex circuits with stiffeners. A typical rigid-flex PWB will cost about seven times the cost of the same design on a hard board, and two to three times an equivalent flex circuit with stiffeners.

‘Can Do’ in CAM Outsourcing: CAM Engineering—Reducing Costs

06/12/2018 | Mehul J. Davé, Entelechy Global, Inc.
While having on-demand capacity, improved automation, and fast turn-around are critical to any front-end engineering operation, achieving those goals with a cost-effective solution is imperative. Electronics are constantly under cost-reduction pressures. Functionality, capability, and complexity increase while costs decrease.
