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.

Technically Appropriate Material Choices Are Key to Success

06/25/2019 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Materials are no longer a passive part of the design; they play an active role in the manufacturability, reliability, and speed of a PCB. Editor Nolan Johnson and Mike Creeden, founder of San Diego PCB Design, discuss several key characteristics that designers should consider in their material selection process.

IPC’s PCB Tech Trends Study Highlights Issues Impacting Fabricators

06/11/2019 | Michael Carano, RBP Chemical Technology
The 2018 survey results indicated the need for speed and low loss as critical functions of the materials chosen. This is the digital age, and with the Internet of Things, virtual and augmented reality, vehicle-to-vehicle communication, etc., the need for low-loss and ultra-low-loss materials continues to grow as a percentage of circuit boards fabricated.

Vertical Conductive Structures, Part 1: Rethinking Sequential Lamination

05/13/2019 | Joan Tourné, NextGIn Technology BV
Sequential lamination, as it is used today in high density interconnect (HDI) and derivative technologies, is constrained by the fact that one cannot plate a blind hole deeper than the diameter of the hole. A larger hole allows processes to plate deeper. In fact, this manufacturing constraint has made it a challenge even to reliably plate and process blind holes up to a 1:1 aspect ratio.
