In some industries, customers are always looking for bigger and better. In the flex circuit industry, however, they want smaller and better.
Minco’s recent acquisition of a new x-ray drill improves our ability to create smaller feature sizes while demonstrating our commitment to expanding our multi-layer flex and rigid-flex capabilities. The drill allows us to build circuits with greater density while maintaining a reliable yield, thanks to a drill spindle capable of drilling 6 mil holes as well as accurately drilling blind vias.
This new technology demonstrates that Minco is at the forefront of the multilayer flex and rigid flex industry. By acquiring equipment like the x-ray drill, we continue to improve our ability to create smaller flex circuits with better capabilities and consistent reliability.
Watch the X-Ray drill video and learn more about its potential or download our Flex Circuit Design Guide to learn all of our flex capabilities. If unsure of whether to use a single-layer flex circuit , multi-layer flex, or rigid flex circuit in your next project, contact Minco today.
