Substrate Processing Becoming Key Link In Supply Chain: More At IMS 2017

Westford, MA – Laser Services, an ISO 9001:2008 - AS9100C and ITAR registered laser job shop is announcing their presence at the International Microwave Symposium next week.

In the 5G/IoT Pavilion Booth 848 at IMS 2017 in Honolulu June 6th - 8th, 2 associated brands will be there to assist with unique substrate processing requirements. Microcircuit designers looking to reduce the cost, time, and materials needed to fabricate their microelectronic circuits will find Laser Services a handy ally. Stocking all major brands of substrate material, Laser Services is an expert at cutting, drilling and scribing; as well as post-processing and ablation. As compared to water-jet cutting which allows for +/- 0.010” feature tolerance, laser cutting can achieve +/- 0.001”. A Tech Brief is available on their website which advises designers on locating circuit features, singulation methods, metallization steps, and material properties and their best applications. 

Sister company, Accumet, provides ultra-precise lapping, polishing, and diamond cutting of ferrous and non-ferrous metals and ceramics. Lapping can be completed from 6 μin to 60 μin and polishing of materials is from 0.1 μin to 5 μin. Accumet can also scribe or dice rectangular or other odd shaped parts up to 0.150” thick in geometries and as small as 0.005” x 0.005”. Accuracy can be held to +/-0.0003”; repeatability to within 0.0001”. Diamond machined edges/ bevels and chamfers can be machined within 0.0005”.
