American Standard Circuits Acquires New Pluritec X-Ray Drill Machine

Reading time ( words)

American Standard Circuits recently acquired a new INSPECTA HPL dual-station X-Ray drill machine from Pluritec.

The INSPECTA HPL X-Ray drill machine provides a wide range of configurations allowing American Standard Circuits to have Pluritec's standard unique X-Ray feature as well as an ultra-high precision two-station drilling/routing machine all within the same unit. The unit's ability to drill down to 0.004" holes as well as utilize surface targets via CCD make this machine uniquely qualified for today's demanding requirements. The maximum versatility of X-Ray, surface targets and contact drilling, combined with a large working area make the new machine a great asset for processing multilayer products.

The machine's patented One Step X-Ray Drilling & Routing function will allow ASC to process a multilayer panel in one step only. The machine will detect and measure (via the X-Ray system) the reference targets in order to directly compensate (rotation, offset and possible scaling) the measured deformation as well as direct drilling/routing. These unique features will provide very high drilling/routing accuracy.

"This equipment combined with the other major investments we have made in the past year allow us to offer even higher technology printed circuit boards. The increased imaging sensitivity and resolution of this machine will allow us to process the high layer count and unique material set multilayer boards our customers require," said Anaya Vardya, CEO of American Standard Circuits. "A full range drilling capabilities, improved X-Ray feature, and a large working area means maximum versatility and flexibility which in turn helps us provide the speed, technology, and top of the line service that we’re all about."

Developments in Low-Loss Substrates for High-Frequency Applications

The electronics industry as we know it today can trace its birth to the creation of the first integrated circuit in 1958, although conception occurred 10 years earlier with the invention of the transistor. That first IC contained a single transistor and four passive components. To say things have come a long way since then is a huge understatement.

PCB Adoption of Innovations

For North America, there is a growing need for more ultra-high density HDI capability. Some of the reasons for the slower adoption of SAP/HDI fabrication may rest with two obstacles: Subtractive processes have difficulty as they approach 50-micron traces and spaces (0.002”), and it is not clear what the total system acquisition costs will be for ultra-HDI.
