MSV308 - Direct Laser Ablation of Circuit Boards


The MSV-308 is a high throughput manufacturing tool specifically designed for high resolution direct laser patterning of circuit boards to cut embedded conductor trenches for next generation HDI circuitry.

The tool is a fully integrated production system designed for high throughput manufacturing of HDI chip carrier and mobile phone circuit boards.

The system allows direct ablative removal of dialectric for creating fine trenches with widths down to <10um. These fine lines are filled with metal and planarised to provide embedded conductors

Included on a vibration isolated granite support structure are UV Solid State lasers and laser beam scanners for circuit formation by rapid ablation of tracks. high accurracy X-Y translation stages allow for substrate positioning and indexing.
