LPKF: Record Demand
The special mechanical engineering company LPKF, Garbsen, Germany, reports a significant upswing in the demand for laser systems for cutting printed circuit boards. Incoming orders for this product line have already reached a level above EUR 10 million after only five months – sales of these products in the whole of the 2011 financial year were only around EUR 6 million. The clients include big-name international electronics groups.
The UV laser cutting systems enable single printed circuit boards to be cut extremely precisely and in any shape from a larger multi-image board. The technology requires no mechanical tools or complex clamping systems. The cutting channel can also be right at the edge of the board because the high precision technology does not harm tracks or components.
