Price Circuits LLC Installs ESI 5335 Laser Drill


Reading time ( words)

Price Circuits LLC a Division of Circuitronics LLC, is pleased to announce another addition to our recent expansion. The ESI 5335 Laser has been installed and fully operational.  

With our focus on supporting complex printed circuit board technologies, in rigid, flex and rigid flex technologies, our technical capability has expanded in 2020. With technologies advancing quickly in the business industries that require the most leading edge support, Price Circuits recognized the need to update with installing the most state of the art equipment available in the industry.

The 5335 is a perfect flex PCB laser processing solution for leading-edge requirements. The laser via drilling machine is a good fit for customers requiring production-oriented flex PCB via drilling for PCB laser processing. In addition, it will benefit micromachining with the state-of-the-art laser processing technology and applied laser expertise built into the 5335 platform. This will enable our facility to further expand its high density interconnect (HDI) flexible circuit manufacturing capabilities. It will also allow us to make smaller vias, expand support for blind and buried vias, and to cut smaller features in the circuit.

Utilizing ESI’s Third Dynamics technology, the 5335 delivers industry-leading capabilities for UV laser via drilling and is optimized for processing both flexible circuits and rigid-flexible printed circuit boards. It also addresses other high-accuracy laser processing applications such as routing, patterning, and skiving through a combination of ESI's patented compound beam positioning and solid-state optical technology.

Laser via drilling and precision laser micromachining to support:

MARKETS:

  • Flex and Rigid-Flex PCB Laser Processing
  • Laser micromachining, Blind via drilling (BHV) Through via drilling (THV)
  • Routing,Patterning,Skiving
  • Polyimide, Glass-reinforced laminates (e.g. FR-4, BT, RT Duroid)
  • Coverlay (Polyimide + Adhesive)

Price Circuits LLC has implemented over $6 million in 2019/2020 to our capital investment to better serve our diverse customer base with process capabilities to further support their ever advancing technology needs. Our customers are coming up with demanding technologies beyond imagination and we as a company are better prepared to support their needs through the expansion.

Myths vs. Facts: The Printed Electronics Roundtable, Part 1

08/11/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
We recently held a roundtable with a team of printed electronic circuit experts from companies that run the gamut: John Lee and Kevin Miller of Insulectro, Mike Wagner of Butler Technologies, Tom Bianchi of Eastprint, and John Voultos of Sheldahl Flexible Technologies. In this first part of the roundtable, the participants dispel 10 common myths that have been floating around regarding printed electronic circuits (PEC). They also discuss the progress that’s been made in PEC development in just the past decade, and what the future may hold for this technology.

The Importance of Rigid-Flex PCB Design Guidelines

07/21/2022 | Cody Stetzel, Cadence Design Systems
I have the tendency to try to replicate the delicacies I’ve ordered at restaurants in my own kitchen. One of my latest attempts at creating restaurant-worthy dishes was a Korean pancake that’s crispy on the outside but soft on the inside. With my amateur cooking skills, it proved to be an impossible task—I could either make only a hard pancake or one that was total fluff. While I’m still struggling to figure out the trick to bringing together the different textures of a Korean pancake, I’ve had more success in bringing together the hardboard elements and flexible PCB elements of a rigid-flex PCB. Compared to making Korean pancakes, striking the right balance of flexibility and rigidity on a rigid-flex PCB is easy if you abide by rigid-flex PCB design guidelines.
