Printed Circuits Installs Burkle High-Temp Lamination Press


Reading time ( words)

Flex and rigid-flex circuit board manufacturer Printed Circuits has purchased and installed a new Burkle high-temperature vacuum lamination press. The new press is heated and cooled with oil. Added to their existing line, the new press offers vacuum lamination temperatures up to 625ºF. 

“A number of our customers have asked us to expand our capabilities to accommodate some of the newer materials on the market,” said Matt Tannehill, executive VP. “Some of their development applications require higher operating temperatures in service than our current materials can provide, or sometimes the materials we want to use need to be laminated at higher temperatures. Either way, we are excited to offer this new capability to our customers."

Ken Tannehill added, “We’ve had Burkle presses in production for over 30 years now. They offer state-of-the-art lamination technology and absolute day in day out reliability and dependability, which is ideal for our operation."

The new press has six openings, full vacuum, hot oil heating and cooling operated by the Burkle Process Technologies Control Center—computer controlled ramp-up, cool down, pressure, and vacuum settings for customized lamination recipes that are ideal for today’s advanced technology applications.
