Amphenol Invotec Tamworth Facility Adds Machinery From Viking Test


Reading time ( words)

Amphenol Invotec, Europe’s leading manufacturer of time-critical, high-technology PCBs has commissioned a new Pluritec Inspecta Combo HPL X-Ray drill with complete automation, from Viking Test for its facility in Tamworth.

Offering a one-stop solution, the Inspecta Combo HPL combines four machines in one system. The patented "One Step X-Ray drilling & Routing" function will perform, via X-Ray system, panel target detection and deformation compensation (linear, non-linear rotation, offset and scaling) and direct drilling or routing. Optical alignment capability further enhances registration options for specialised applications.

Enhanced capability, versatility and flexibility make the COMBO HPL an ideal choice for the processing of complex multi-layer, and rigid-flex PCBs at Amphenol Invotec. Large panel format capability falls in line with Invotec’s ongoing investment to increase panel size capability across all manufacturing areas.

Tim Tatton, General Manager of Amphenol Invotec, said, "We specialize in complex, high layer-count, high-reliability PCBs, which means that we are increasingly working with thin and varied materials, including variable copper weights. Registration challenges are ever tighter and this machine will give us a significant step forward in driving yield improvements and through automation reducing cycle time & costs, which is good news for Amphenol Invotec and our customers."

Solder Mask Curing: UV Bump Overview

08/19/2019 | Nikolaus Schubkegel
Ultraviolet (UV) bump, also called UV cure, is a processing step in which the solder mask pattern is irradiated with ultraviolet and infrared light. This step is performed with special equipment that is built as a continuous flow system, which consists of a conveyor belt and tubular UV lamps mounted above and below the belt. Read on to find out more about this process.

Avoiding CAF Failures at the IPC High-reliability Forum

12/31/1969 | Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
Foresite CEO Terry Munson recently spoke with Andy Shaughnessy during the IPC High-Reliability Forum and Microvia Summit in Baltimore about his presentation on the causes of conductive anodic filament (CAF), the dangers of resin starvation, and what advice he'd give to PCB designers to avoid those types of failures.

A Guide to High-reliability PCBs from Design to Specification

07/24/2019 | Jeff Beauchamp, NCAB Group
Creating reliable PCBs is an outcome of considering all aspects that can affect reliability as early as possible in the design process. The further down the design process, the more expensive and risky it can be to fix. As they say, everything starts with the design. Because a good board design improves the reliability of the end product and lessens the risk of failure.
