Innovative Circuits (Alpharetta, GA) Reports Immediate Success with their NEW Hakuto Mach 6630NP Dry Film Laminator
After almost 5 months of operation, Innovative Circuits Inc. reports that their new Hakuto Mach 6630NP Auto Dry Film Laminator is meeting their objectives… and more.
Amir Davoud, Business Development Manager for Innovative elaborates by saying that Innovative is a concept to completion board house renowned for their ability to quickly fabricate high reliability rigid, rigid flex and flex circuits. They combine this with comprehensive engineering support throughout the process. Amir says that acquiring the new 6630NP laminator has been a definite advantage to improving their success. He says the 6630NP has made us stronger in two areas by providing greater reliability while cutting cycle times.
The engineering team, Tony Steinke, Operations Manager and Dale Lovell, Chief Engineer also report on further specific benefits.
- Yield Increase
Inner Layer opens have been reduced by 27%.
- Ease of Operation
Our previous method of film lamination would require extensive employee training and experience to work in this area. The 6630 has cut the “get up to speed” time greatly and has allowed us to have more employees cross trained and be proficient in its use.
- Quick Film Changes
The new cassette film loading option has reduced film changeover by 50%.
We have seen an increase in productivity directly related to the 6630. The main reason is that we experience fewer mechanical issues than in the past.
Dale specifically emphasizes the new ease of use and reliability of the machine and states there are fewer chips in the Developer solution and there is no film wrinkling.
To date, Matrix has installed 8 new systems and all customers are reporting positive results.
Fred Long, Matrix Business Development says: “The new Mach 630NP Series machines address the accuracy needed to assist in the Direct Image (DI) transfer of very fine lines on the latest HSLL laminates using Super Low Profile Copper surfaces. This is made possible by the new Lamination Module with its EVEN Heat and EVEN Pressure across the entire surface of the laminated panel. In addition, the ability to change the rubber lamination rolls in seconds will not only increase productivity but will also offer alternative “quick change” rubber solutions for different product needs. The complete redesign of the film lamination approach will now begin to reach the most important users of this latest technology. Matrix is eager to show manufacturers that by using the new system, Productivity and Yield will now surpass all traditional ROI expectations.”
