PCi Process Capabilities

PCi Process Capabilities

Over ten years ago, we made a substantial investment in a Laser Direct Imager from Orbotech and a combination UV/CO2 laser drill/router from Excellon that have given us the ability to make a remarkable break from conventional processes. The technologies have produced pretty dramatic improvements in our yields, fine line capability, and reduced process cost, all of which will give you a better product. To find out more about either technology, please click on the photo of the Orbotech LDI or Excellon Laser to visit their websites.

Each day new board designs push one or more areas of our technology curve and help us produce tighter tolerances and denser boards. The capabilities that we have listed below are given in general terms because they are interdependent – and it is possible that your requirements extend beyond the ranges given below. If your project is outside of those ranges, give us a call. We may have already produced it, and if not we’d like to work with you to expand our capabilities.
