FlexLink to Introduce New Laser Marker with Double Sided Marking


Reading time ( words)

The latest advancement in PCB board handling by FlexLink will be introduced at the IPC APEX electronic exhibition in Las Vegas (US) on March 15. The GENIUS 1-LV is a laser marking module with inverter that is compact in size, and equipped with the world’s first 3 axis control - CO2 laser marker. 

The new GENIUS 1-LV module combines the established 1-LX laser marker and the 1-IN inverter into one compact package. Its double sided marking provides permanent identification on PCBs for tracking or recognition and can mark on a variety of non-metallic surfaces. The footprint is small, and the entire module fits inside 900 x 1,600 x 1,800 mm (LxWxH). 

“By integrating Keyence’s ML-Z series CO2 laser head and barrel style camera, the 1-LV provides one of the most efficient systems on the market today.” Says Dick Andersson, Product Manager Electronics at FlexLink.

“The new marker with inverter gives manufacturers the ability to reach higher production rates by allowing two operations in one, making better use of their investment. Thanks to our efficient supply chain and global footprint, customers benefit from short delivery times, excellent after sales services and fast, accurate response to their requests.” Dick Andersson concludes.

From PCB handling modules to turnkey solutions – FlexLink delivers automated production flow solutions that increase total efficiency. To find out more information about the new Genius 1-LV, please visit booth# 3114 at the IPC APEX show or contact us directly.

The big news in the industry this week was the new bill introduced to the U.S. Congress in support of the PCB manufacturing industry. The Supporting American Printed Circuit Boards Act of 2022, which was introduced by Reps. Anna Eshoo (D-CA) and Blake Moore (R-UT), incentivizes “purchases of domestically produced PCBs as well as industry investments in factories, equipment, workforce training, and research and development.” The bill is a PCB-oriented complement to the semiconductor-oriented CHIPS Act of 2021.

A Game Plan for Upskilling Your Fab Workforce

05/10/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
There’s been a lot of talk among PCB manufacturers about the need to upskill their workforce. But where do you start—do you set up your own program or send staff to third-party training centers? We asked David Hernandez, IPC vice president of education, to weigh in on this topic, and the criteria that goes into creating IPC training programs. In addition to upskilling strategies, David also delves into the need for our industry to develop a labor pipeline, as well as the challenges we face in hiring, training, and retaining employees in this industry during a tight labor market.
