The Registration Sweet Spot
Registration is underrated and underappreciated. The key is to ensure proper registration from layer to layer across the entire printed circuit board. It’s a holistic process requiring anticipation, prediction, precise attention at each step, and detailed data tracking and monitoring.

Cibel Chooses Frontline PCB Solutions' InCAM as Its Leading CAM SolutionApril 11, 2017 | Orbotech
Estimated reading time: 2 minutes
Orbotech has announced that Cibel has chosen InCAM as its preproduction CAM solution to replace its Genesis2000 CAM operation. Developed by Frontline PCB Solutions, InCAM is a comprehensive CAM system that performs fast, high-precision CAM tooling, via powerful design-for-manufacturing tools.
“Since migrating from Genesis 2000 to InCAM, we’ve noticed improved analysis speeds due to InCAM’s multi-processing capabilities. We can begin reviewing analysis results for the first layer while other layer analyses run in the background, dramatically shortening cycle time,” said Christophe JOYAU, Cibel General Director. “Integration is smoother in InCAM, not only with Frontline’s engineering products (InPlan and InStack) but with the entire Windows environment, and there is seamless backwards compatibility with Genesis 2000. In addition, all-round improved functionality – pad stacks, profile with holes etc.– enables significantly faster job processing.”
“We are very pleased with Cibel’s decision to migrate to InCAM®,” said Claudio Bellistri, CAM and Engineering Business Manager, Orbotech Europe. “InCAM’s dedicated DFM and analysis tools, Check & Fix, and system-wide automation enable operators to achieve unparalleled quality and accuracy, helping manufacturers meet production challenges in a collaborative and secure work environment. These benefits have driven a growing trend of migration from Genesis to InCAM.”
InCAM® is a comprehensive, innovative CAM system for HDI and IC Packaging PCB manufacturers that combines editing and analysis with automatic design-for-manufacture optimization to perform high-precision CAM tooling, with maximum efficiency and speed - helping manufacturers achieve lasting profitability and a competitive edge. InCAM® supports yield growth by enabling operators to multi-task and run advanced processes in the background, using the computer's multi-core CPU capabilities. Cycle time is dramatically shortened as colleagues team up on jobs in a data-secure, collaborative environment. InCAM® delivers improved data integrity and fault indication by allowing interactive post processing on selected DFM results. In addition, InCAM® operators can enjoy a streamlined user interface and remarkably easy-to-use tools. In addition, backwards compatibility with Genesis 2000, for both data and automation, drives productivity even further.
