Invotec Group, a manufacturer of time-critical, high-technology printed circuit boards (PCBs), is investing €1m (£800,000) into upgrading the capability of its Tamworth facility.
The investment programme will include the installation of an Orbotech Paragon 9800i LDI system, set for delivery in November. Offering high-speed automated imaging of HDI, Flex, Rigid-Flex and Solder-Mask applications, the unit will reportedly ensure high yields while satisfying tight registration accuracy requirements.
Invotec will also upgrade its resin fill and brush system process in response to an increased demand for HDI technology.
Finally, the investment programme will include new robotic loaders and unloaders for the chemical pre-bonding process. This is hoped to reduce manual handling and ensure improved cleanliness, consistency and efficiency.
