Test fixture guide plates micro-drilling for IC substrates and bare boards testing industry

Micro-drilling of test fixture guide plates for IC substrates and bare boards testing faces the challenge of maintaining extreme precision and quality. With intricate IC and substrates designs, even slight inaccuracies can affect testing efficiency, risking unreliable results or device damage. Moreover, the evolving landscape of IC and substrates requires a constant adaptability in micromachining processes, making innovation a core necessity.

Micro-drilling of test fixture guide plates application overview

We process any kind of test fixture guide plates on a wide range of engineering plastics (S1000, PPS, Miproplate, etc.). Utilizing a process characterized by a high repetition rate and unmatched Laser beam quality, it promises exceptional repeatability in hole quality. This meticulous approach not only delivers unequaled productivity but also ensures a higher yield rate. Critically, the entire process is free from thermal effects (NAZ), safeguarding the integrity of the materials at every step.

FEMTOsecond LASER technology to perform these results

The FEMTOsecond LASER technology is a perfect match for all industries requiring the highest precision without compromising quality and productivity.

Miniaturized components are used in all kind of devices. Several applications – e.g. in the electronics or MedTech world – are not imaginable without very small and tiny parts. Thus, this requires new ways to produce and manufacture these parts. With FEMTO LASER μ-machining there are various processes possible like drilling, cutting and turning. It's compatible with almost all materials that are otherwise very difficult to machine with conventional tools.

With each FEMTOsecond LASER pulse that hits the work-piece, a small amount of material immediately vaporizes. The material removal occurs in a controlled manner leading to no damage, burrs or any negative influences to the material integrity.

Your benefits:

  • FEMTOsecond Laser source < 300 fs
  • Highest level of accuracy and productivity
  • Stable and repeatable quality
  • Cold ablation keeping material integrity (no HAZ)
  • Proven performance in 24/7 industrial environment
