Laser Cutting and Laminating Machine

challenge

The client commissioned a machine to manufacture its new product at high levels of accuracy and output. This machine would laser-cut and attach a soft adhesive layer onto each flex circuit on a reel, then carry out the laminating process to ensure a full and durable bond.
 
After considering our ability to meet all the stringent requirements, the client selected us over their previous provider. Another key deciding factor was our proven track record of providing comprehensive after-sales services.

solution

Incorporation of a customized laser system with active compensation through vision system, Specially designed reel feeding system with constant tension control to handle soft and flexible adhesive layer, Use of multiple control platform and multi-station with simultaneous action of more than 20 axes to achieve complex attachment speed, High speed Servo-driven indexing with machine vision, Control and GUI via multiple platforms, Flexibility of handling more than one product of different sizes and quick conversion

outcomes and benefits

Our team engineered a solution that was both reasonably priced and provided superior performance. In comparison with the machines used by the previous provider, we were able to reduce cycle time by more than 50%, and double the original output. Low downtime and a high yield of >99.8% also contributed to the satisfactory results.
 
The machine was also able to achieve high laser cutting accuracy of within +/- 25µm on soft adhesive layers, and overall lamination and handling accuracy of +/- 50µm. It is also NRTL and CE compliant.
 
Through PSB Tech’s excellent customer care, the client gained long term saving through lower maintenance and spare part costs.
