Leading European PCB Maker chooses Orbotech for its superior technology and reliability

YAVNE, ISRAEL, JULY 21, 2015 | ORBOTECH LTD. is announcing that SOMACIS, a leading European PCB manufacturer and long-time customer and technology partner of Orbotech, has been successfully using Orbotech’s new Nuvogo 800 Direct Imaging (DI) system at its fabrication facility at Castelfidardo (AN), Italy - SOMACIS specializes in HDI, rigid, rigid-flex and flex PCB manufacturing.

Orbotech’s Nuvogo DI solution, incorporating unique MultiWave Laser Technology™, is expected to help SOMACIS increase its competitive edge in manufacturing for HDI sequential build-up technology with a pitch under 0.4 mm. The system will reinforce the already very high quality SOMACIS production standards by improving the speed and flexibility required for rapid prototyping.

“SOMACIS was looking for a DI system that would support a variety of applications, ranging from inner/outer layers to solder mask. The Nuvogo 800 system not only meets these requirements, but also offers the highest accuracy and throughput with flexibility to image any resist type”, explained Mr. Giovanni Tridenti, SOMACIS CEO. “We are very pleased with the results that Nuvogo 800 has delivered and value the high professional standards Orbotech offers, matched fully by its top-of-the-line technology. Orbotech’s proven reliability of service, mindset of true partnership and quality equipment all contributed to our decision to invest yet again in another successful Orbotech solution.”

“It is with great satisfaction that we acknowledge SOMACIS’s positive feedback. We are pleased that the Nuvogo 800 system supports SOMACIS’s goals through its fine line capabilities, faster turnaround time and the flexibility across multiple resist types for a range of applications”, stated Mr. Hadar Himmelman, President of Orbotech West. “We are very pleased to have the opportunity to provide this esteemed technology partner with best-in-class solutions.”

About Nuvogo 800

Nuvogo™ 800 is a next-generationDirect Imaging (DI) solution capable of imaging on almost every resist type, affording maximum flexibility to PCB makers. Powered by MultiWave Laser Technology™, Nuvogo 800 generates a multi wavelength laser beam for optimal line structure. This provides PCB manufacturers the ability to choose lower-cost resist types in order to further reduce total operating costs.

Thishigh-productivity machine is able to achieve up to 7,000 panels/day/line at unprecedented quality. Superior line quality and registration accuracy is achieved through Orbotech’s field-proven Large Scan Optics (LSO) Technology™. Suitable for the most advanced HDI production, Nuvogo 800 ensures a high depth-of-focuscritical for maximizing yields in increasingly challenging production environments.The combination of super high-productivity, flexibility to use almost any resist and unmatched yields results in the lowest possible cost-per-print and significantly lowers the system's total cost of ownership.
