Matrix to Show New PCB Drill Tools at IPC APEX 2016

Reading time ( words)

After a 10 year partnership with Jinzhou Precision Technology Corp. the relationship is paying increasing dividends for both Matrix and its customers. Jinzhou, is now one of the world’s leading manufacturers of precision carbide tools. Their expertise and continuing development of state-of-the–art tools addresses the hole-wall quality and micro drilling registration needs of the new generation high-speed low-loss laminates.

Matrix encourages customers to visit Booth 247 at IPC APEX EXPO, March 15-17 in Las Vegas, to discuss with their engineering staff the many varieties of drill application tools, hybrid single-flute, undercut and standard, anti-fracture routers, and pilot and back drills.

New for 2016 will be the Hybrid Single-Flute Drill designed for drilling high aspect-ratio and heavy copper content PCBs.  This tool provides improved registration, less breakage, reduced need for pilot drilling, lower number of pecks, and excellent hole-wall quality.

Along with the two PerfectPoint Repointing Centers in Toronto, Canada and Santa Ana, California, Matrix provides the full service for all PCB manufacturers.  Both facilities are equipped with the identical automatic sharpening/AOI and ultrasonic cleaning systems.

EIPC Technical Snapshot: Supply Chain and Material Price Pressures

04/26/2021 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
EIPC’s seventh Technical Snapshot webinar on April 14 was timely and appropriate. In the context of current supply chain issues and material price pressures facing the PCB industry, particularly in Europe, the EIPC team brought together an outstanding group of experts—each a leading authority in his field—to analyse and comment upon the areas of concern and to respond to questions raised by a capacity audience. As Alun Morgan said, “If you don’t use the European supply chain, you won’t have it anymore!”
