Candor at the Forefront of Fabrication with Leading-Edge PCB Builds

Reading time ( words)

Canadian circuit board fabricator Candor Industries continues to be a leader in cutting edge technology with a recent series of progressive board builds. Candor has successfully manufactured a run of two-layer, two-mil core with two-mil line and space, plated via boards with laser cutting.

Candor’s Technical Sales Manager Sunny Patel gave details about the build, “We created a 2-mil space board with 2-mil traces on flex core that was made possible through our extensive photoresist and etching capabilities. Our registration had to be very good due to the size of the board (.270”x.075”) and required laser cutting features that were .031” wide. Our development of 2-mil line and space boards continues and we are excited about working on future projects with equally challenging specs."

In addition to the 2-mil board, Candor also hit a technological milestone with via fills of 0.0066 RO4350B material, achieving 10 mi vias with non-conductive via fill.

Patel added, “Thin panels are generally challenging for conventional via filling machines and systems. We have developed advanced planarizing techniques that will fill these thin panels with one pass. Through these unique techniques, we have reduced the distortion that is often seen with regular processing.”

Looking to the future, Candor continues to improve their skill, process and technology in order to push the limits of PCB fabrication.

Pollution Prevention Techniques: Rinse Water Reduction

08/30/2019 | Peter Moleux with contributions from Happy Holden
There are five general categories of common techniques for pollution prevention in a PCB fabrication facility: new processes to replace sources of pollution; extend the bath’s life; rinse water reduction; dragout reduction; and ventilation reduction. While this list is not all-inclusive, it provides an overview of the types of technologies used around the world that are important to consider. This article, examines rinse water reduction.
