PFC Flexible Circuits Expands Service Offerings with ESI Model 5335 Laser Processing System
Leading North American Supplier of Flexible Circuit Assemblies Increases Support for HDI Flex Circuit Manufacturing with ESI's Help
"PFC has been supplying fine line technology for the past eight years.
Now, with the addition of the Model 5335, we can support true HDI flex
PFC chose the ESI Model 5335 in part because of its high throughput capabilities compared to alternatives. For example, the ESI Model 5335 can drill 50 micron blind vias at a rate of 32,000 holes per minute. This performance is made possible by Third Dynamics™, a patented high-speed beam positioning technology that enables fast and accurate routing and drilling of flexible circuits.
"We were looking to update our drilling technology without losing
The ESI Model 53XX family is widely regarded as the industry standard for laser processing across the flexible circuit and interconnect industry. Over 1,200 ESI laser processing systems are installed worldwide and are in use at nine of the top 10 flex circuit manufacturers. These systems offer industry-leading drill, routing, patterning, and skiving performance.
"We are extremely pleased that PFC has decided to incorporate ESI laser
processing technology into its HDI and flexible circuit manufacturing
