Merlin Circuit increases PCB QTA<br>capability and capacity
PCB manufacturer Merlin Circuit Technology based in North Wales have redesigned there technology QTA service investing in additional equipment, systems and personnel.
Merlin have installed a new Orbotech Laser Direct Imaging system (LDI) and additional Orbotech AOI capacity. The LDI system will allow improved process capability to 50um lines and spaces in addition to improved registration, printing accuracy and significant time savings which is critical for fast moving quick turn around PCB manufacture. Merlin's service now includes 24 hour, 2, 3, and 5 day Quick Turn Around manufacturing options for 2 to 32 layer product together with flexible and flex rigid PCBs. A key feature of Merlin's Quick Turn Around service is that it is not only for high technology prototypes and NPI but also for larger volume requirements when time is of the essence. Merlin MD Malcolm Shields commented “We have a first class team at Merlin who really understand what time critical means and with the installation of our new LDI system we can turn around high quality product even quicker".
