Eltek Continues to Invest, Increase Production Capacity

Reading time ( words)

Eltek is excited to announce the new custom-built DES (Develop/Etch/Strip) line, for faster, more precise, and fully Industry 4.0 compliant production line.

All DES modules can be controlled and monitored independently with mobile terminal devices such as tablets or via web browser which improves process control and stability. The new Eltek DES Line can be directly connected to the production monitoring system which ensures traceability of inner layers. The specially designed conveyor enables Eltek to be able to process ultra-thin flex cores and will increase production capacity and yields.

The new DES line etching module was designed particularly for fine line etching which allows Eltek to reach 2 mil Line Space (L/S) and beyond for ultra-thin & high-density PCBs. 

Eltek’s new DES line is designed for low power usage and high performance (IE4), reduced chemical consumption and lower environmental pollutant discharge for complete compliance to environmental regulations. 

The company is confident that with this new DES line, and Eltek’s continuous investments in our production lines our customers will benefit from enhanced capabilities and leadtimes.

The new DES line is now undergoing testing and certification. It is operating in parallel with the former DES line to maintain full production capacity.

The Benefits of Statistical Process Control

02/17/2021 | Kurt Palmer, Bürkle North America
The concepts of statistical process control were initially developed by Dr. Walter Shewhart of Bell Laboratories in the 1920s, and were expanded upon by Dr. W. Edwards Deming, who introduced SPC to Japanese industry after WWII. After early successful adoption by Japanese firms, SPC has now been incorporated by organizations around the world as a primary tool to improve product quality by reducing process variation.

Everyone wants a smooth-running solder mask process with high productivity and minimal rejects, but to achieve this you really need a firm understanding of what your current process is capable of, what its limitations are, and what you want to improve. Process capability benchmarking is a great way to identify and implement improvements within your process.

Your Greatest Competition is Yourself

01/20/2021 | Barry Matties, I-Connect007
It really doesn’t matter who you think your external competitors are, because the only competitor that really matters is you. Of course, you will look externally to stay on top of latest trends, but when it comes to competition, just competing with yourself is a win. When you look at yourself as your greatest competitor you will start with a huge advantage: you already have great intel on how “your competition” thinks. Ask yourself, “What can I do to displace my ‘competitor’ and create something much better?”
