Faraday Circuits launches new IMS capability

UK based Faraday Printed Circuits has acquired a Tongtai Machine Co. CVC 700 CNC Auto-loading V-Scoring System as part of a continued investment programme.
Due in late September the machine will further expand the capacity and technology levels of the Washington plant in Tyne & Wear, which currently supplies to customers across the UK, Europe and Asia.

The new investment will enable Faraday to further compete in the rapidly expanding LED lighting market by adding IMS (insulated metal substrate) material as a standard capability, alongside multilayer, PTH double sided, flexible, flex-rigid and conventional pcb manufacture. LED lighting uses IMS for heat management due to its thermal efficiency.

Jamie Pearson, Managing Director, commented ‘We are delighted to be adding this capability and offering it to our customers. The demand for low energy LED lighting is growing and by further expanding into the market we are strengthening our UK manufacturing operation and helping to secure the jobs that it supports.’
