Precise Cutting & Drilling of Thin or Flexible Materials
For cutting or drilling of PCB materials, UV laser systems work with a laser power of just a few watts. Flexible circuits have become a standard in consumer electronics, the automotive industry, and robotics. High-precision cutting operations, and flexible process control by LPKF UV laser technology is the first choice for drilling and cutting of thin PCBs.

There was a time when IT manufacturing plants revolved around mechanics and hardware assembly. While the software side of things could do some amazing stuff in virtual land, the assembly of servers, PCs, and circuit boards was still locked well into the basic mechanics. Adhesion and assembly were applied through screws, solder, drilling, cutting, puzzle locks, hedging, and even carpentry principles applied to metal and plastic. It’s a bit ironic how, for so many years, the very tools industries have used for technological advancement have still relied on assembly methods applied with tools created centuries ago.

The Future is Laser Plastic Welding
Laser Plastic Welding is a superior joining technology because the joint strength enables miniaturized designs and improved variable costs due to reduced part count and labor. Because the two parts become one, they flex as one. They will not separate when subjected to environmental testing—be it chemical, extensive hot or cold situations, or physical abuse. The parts have to be destroyed to be separated. Continue reading “14 Key Benefits of Adopting the Latest Laser Plastic Welding Technology”
When it comes to bringing PCB prototype(s) from conception to production, there are many things you can do along the way to ensure that all of the variables are taken care of beforehand and are not consuming your time once rolled-out for production. One of the most crucial aspects is a robust prototyping process. Continue reading “How to Streamline Your PCB Prototype Projects in 11 Simple Steps”
The way in which businesses design, develop, and manufacture products are always evolving—and the landscape of Printed Circuit Board (PCB) is no exception. Designing PCBs is an intricate process that requires highly skilled professionals dedicated to excellence in quality. From beginning to end, the process must be precise and detailed to avoid many of the common mistakes that are bound to occur along the way. This discussion summarizes five common PCB design mistakes and provides simple ways to avoid them. Continue reading “5 Common Mistakes to Avoid During the PCB Design Process”
