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.

I recently spoke with PCB Technologies’ Jeff De Serrano, Yaniv Maydar, and Alon Menache about their new venture, InPack. They explain their plans to focus on advanced packaging, miniaturization, and other high-end technology, with much faster time to market, and they offer a view of the global market as well.

Catching up with EISO Enterprises’ President Gary Chien

While there are many Chinese companies now selling in the United States, I wanted to find one in Taiwan that is penetrating the U.S. market. I was delighted to come across EISO Enterprise Co. Ltd., a printed circuit board fabricator located in Taiwan. I know that the American companies are usually looking for PCB global partners in countries other than China, which made my conversation with Gary (Jung Kun) Chien all the more interesting, especially when he shared his thoughts on the U.S-China trade wars.

Measuring Multiple Lamination Reliability for Low-loss Materials

04/04/2022 | John Strubbe, Taiwan Union Technology Corporation
Taiwan Union Technology Corporation (TUC) provides copper-clad laminates and dielectric resin composites used to manufacture printed circuit boards. The enthalpy of these resin composites meets and exceeds customers’ objectives and shows the deterioration of the resin’s physical properties as a result of multiple lamination cycles (up to 10X). This article describes how TUC evaluates the possible change in resin structure due to multi-thermal laminations.
