Roll-to-roll automation for even the most difficult materials.
Automating a production line has many benefits that can further reduce the cost of ownership of your flex PCB drilling investment. Especially as flexible circuits grow thinner and more sensitive to contamination and improper handling, operator wages rise, and accuracy requirements increase, material automation becomes an attractive accessory for PCB drilling equipment. ESI’s material automation solutions are optimized to get the highest performance out of your ESI flex laser drilling tools.
Some of the many benefits of automating a product line include:
- Reduced labor costs
- Higher product yield
- Higher equipment utilization rates
- Lower process cycle times
