Getting to Know Your Designer
In this issue, we examine how fabs work with their design customers, educating them on the critical elements of fabrication needed to be successful, as well as the many tradeoffs involved. How well do you really know your customer? What makes for a closer, more synchronized working relationship?
In this issue, the biggest names in PCB manufacturing share their economic outlook for the upcoming year and beyond. As you will see, they were all bullish on our industry, but there was some apprehension as well. No one wants to get burned by another the supply chain disruption.

Nano System Installs Advanced UV/CO2 Laser Drill at Nova DrillingJanuary 28, 2016 | Nano System
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
Nano System Incorporated has announced the installation of an advanced UV/CO2 dual beam laser drill at Nova Drilling in Santa Clara, CA. The Model NS1-3228-UC2 machine is equipped with a CO2 laser of the latest technology with over 3kW peak power and a 20 watt UV laser. It features Nano Systems leading edge motion control system, Vector Force DynamicsTM (VFDTM), which delivers fast and accurate routing and drilling of features with complex process tool paths. Linear motor driven XY stages are featured along with a 28” x 32” panel area and a camera integrated into the laser head coaxially for increased vision speed and greater image position accuracy.
This machine is based on Nano System’s new NS1-3200 laser platform released earlier this year. NS1-3200 series machines utilize state of the art motion control architecture and NC interface technology to control and synchronize laser interpolated firing across multiple axes of motion. This approach delivers up to six axes of freedom to provide unparalleled accuracy for drilling, skiving, trimming and thin film patterning processes. A variety of laser delivery systems including CO2, UV, IR, and Visible (Green) technology can be tailored to meet the specific needs of the customer’s processes.
“With this new laser system Nova Drilling has greatly enhanced their capabilities to process a variety of high density, micro-miniature applications requiring fast tooling configurations and a high degree of accuracy and productivity.” said Mike Doherty, Vice President of Nova Drilling Service.

It’s a well-known fact that if your company is not growing and moving forward every single day, it is dying. The same rule applies to technology companies: To stay alive, you must grow your technology by keeping up with your customers’ product technology needs. Too many printed circuit board fabricators are dying a slow death because they are not willing or able to invest the time, energy, money, and passion to always work on their technology.
