Sunstone Upgrades Capabilities by Adding New Orbotech LDI


Reading time ( words)

Sunstone Circuits has just announced the addition of the Paragon-9800, the latest in laser direct imaging equipment from Orbotech, to its Oregon manufacturing facility.

“With the electronics industry continually requiring smaller and denser PCBs, with tighter manufacturing tolerances, Sunstone Circuits is again responding by adding necessary manufacturing technology to meet these needs. In our business of quick turnaround, high-tech US manufactured PCB prototyping, we are thrilled to be able to invest in equipment that streamlines our process, and improves our capabilities and quality.” said Sunstone’s Director of Operations, Nancy Viter.

The recently installed Paragon-9800 is providing Sunstone with additional imaging capacity, capability and environmental improvements.  The combination of high depth-of-focus (≥300µm), accuracy (+/- 10µ), high resolution capability (25µm/ 1 mil) and Dynamic imaging modes means Sunstone will continue to stay ahead of the PCB technology curve. The digital printing format of the Paragon-9800 allows Sunstone to continue to lower waste generation, and reduce both process time and costs as compared to the additional processes required by classic imaging techniques. “I am excited about of moving to digital imaging, it has positive impacts on both quality and waste,” said Ed Graham Sunstone’s Environmental Health and Safety Manager, “which will benefit Sunstone, our customers and the environment as a whole.”

HDI: Born in the USA and Making a Comeback

There is no denying that high-density interconnect (HDI) has been around a long time—over 25 years, believe it or not. From almost the moment of its conception in the U.S., the technology was adopted by and used almost exclusively in Asia.

3D Printed Electronics for Printed Circuit Structures

10/04/2017 | Samuel LeBlanc, Paul Deffenbaugh, Jacob Denkins, and Kenneth Church nSCRYPT INC.
Printed electronics is a familiar term that is taking on more meaning as the technology matures. Flexible electronics is sometimes referred to as a subset of this and the printing approach is one of the enabling factors for roll-to-roll processes.

The State-of-the-Art in PCB Pre-production Engineering

09/21/2017 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
If there’s one benefit of old age, it’s being able to remember the introduction to our industry of technologies that may be taken for granted by the present generation, but were revolutionary at the time. I can recall the history of Ucamco as far back as the late 1980s when, as one of the very early adopters of the DISC laser plotter and its associated electronic PCB front-end tooling system, our company gained entry to a spectacular new world of pre-production engineering capability.
