Together with the Nuvogo Fine, Orbotech will present the Precise ™ 800 – the first Automated Optical Shaping (AOS) solution for 3D Shaping of PCB opens and shorts for Advanced HDI and Complex Multi-Layer Boards

TOKYO, JAPAN, JUNE 1, 2016 | ORBOTECH LTD is highlighting its latest next generation PCB manufacturing solutions this week at JPCA in Tokyo, Japan. On show will be the new Nuvogo™ Fine - the first Direct Imaging (DI) solution with superior throughput for new production technologies, mainly modified semi- additive process (mSAP) for advanced HDI and flexible printed circuits. Alongside the Nuvogo Fine, Orbotech will be unveiling in Japan for the first time the groundbreaking Precise™ 800, the company’s latest innovation in Automated Optical Shaping (AOS) and a complete breakthrough in electronics micro-manufacturing production processes. .

Live demos of Orbotech’s latest innovative PCB manufacturing solutions will take place from June 1-3 at JPCA 2016, Booth #3B-04, East Exhibition Hall 3, Tokyo Big Sight in Tokyo, Japan.

Orbotech is launching the Nuvogo Fine – this DI high-volume solution targeted at advanced manufacturing processes. The Nuvogo Fine enables the PCB manufacturing industry to support the production of thinner, flexible, high-density, high-functionality devices. This new DI solution sets a new industry standard in ultra-fine resolution with superior imaging quality and exceptionally fast throughput. By enabling extremely fast panel production speeds, the Nuvogo Fine accelerates time-to-market while ensuring a very low cost-per-print.

The recently launched, revolutionary Precise 800 is the first solution for the advanced HDI and complex multi-layer PCB manufacturing market, capable of both ablating excess copper (“shorts”) and depositing missing copper (“opens”), all in a single automated process. This AOS system enables accurate, high quality 3D shaping of the most advanced PCB designs, significantly increasing yield by eliminating PCB scrap. The Precise™ 800 addresses all defects including those on inner and outer layers, multiple lines, corners and pads.

Also on display are the Sprint™ 200 inkjet printer with DotStream Pro Technology™, Ultra Fusion™ 300, and its range of Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) software solutions for efficient planning and production.

“We are delighted to shine the spotlight on our latest innovative PCB manufacturing solutions here at JPCA in Japan,” commented Yair Alcobi, President of Orbotech Asia East. “As the market continues to move towards thinner, smaller, faster, flexible and higher functionality devices, Orbotech enables PCB manufacturers to stay apace with solutions built for today’s and tomorrow’s needs.”
