ESI's Most Extensible Laser Micromachining Platform Delivers Efficient Manufacturing for Consumer Electronics
New modular JadeTM platform enables manufacturers to react quickly to market demands, deliver a wide variety of high-quality, innovative components
The new platform addresses challenges faced by manufacturers in the fast-changing consumer electronics segment where they cope with new materials, new technologies and evolving consumer expectations. Meanwhile, there is relentless pressure to reduce costs, meet quality requirements and achieve high-volume high-yield production. The JadeTM platform is the first laser micromachining platform capable of meeting all these diverse requirements, offering unprecedented levels of versatility and cost-efficient operation.
"Production requirements in consumer electronics are constantly changing
with new materials and features that require a range of laser
micromachining processes that can be delivered quickly and at an
attractive cost of ownership," said
The JadeTM platform is designed to provide contract and consumer electronics manufacturers with a smarter manufacturing option through the use of extendable and configurable stages, lasers, and automation. The base platform can be configured with multiple laser and optics options as well as a range of add-on options including pre- and post-inspection, metrology and advanced alignment automation. All configurations use a common user interface to reduce training time.
This flexibility means that a JadeTM platform can address
multiple marking, cutting, and drilling applications in a responsive and
cost-effective manner, improving the useful lifespan of the tool and
significantly lowering overall cost of ownership for our customers. The
JadeTM platform continues ESI's commitment to reliability,
