Kurt Palmer, president and CEO of Burkle North America, announced today that APCT Santa Clara has selected a Bürkle WorkCell lamination system to enhance their PCB lamination capability.

Eric Schmidt, APCT vice president of operations, stated, “We are pleased to partner with Bürkle by adding their lamination press system–a “WorkCell” with two hot presses, a cold press, and a Bürkle Transport loading system.

“Bürkle North America has done an outstanding job supporting us with their state-of-the-art equipment, including Schmoll mechanical drills and laser drilling systems, and we expect that our strong partnership with BNA will only benefit APCT further with this most recent purchase of the Burkle press.”

Headquartered in Santa Clara, Calif., the company features four manufacturing sites and is considered one of the most experienced board fabrication companies in North America. APCT offers a broad range of printed circuit board manufacturing capabilities, including higher layer counts in through-hole technology, high technology HDI product, and the support of flex and rigid-flex builds.

Happy Holden: ECWC15 Virtual Event a Success

12/15/2020 | Happy Holden, I-Connect007
This is the first Electronic Circuits World Convention that I have not attended in person since 1978. To refresh your memory, these are held every three years on a rotating basis. The HKPCA hosted this year’s conference and they kept up the fine tradition of collecting outstanding keynotes, nearly 60 technical presentations and myriad poster papers. HKPCA was also kind enough to provide English slides and translations. It is still possible to sign up and view the presentations. I have listened to 20 of the presentations, and hope to attend even more in the coming days as they are all worth watching.
