Ormecon's Nanofinish- first line in China, first OEM to approve production boards
Jan 23, 2008
With a first line in China and a first positive production scale test for an OEM, the introduction of Ormecon's new PCB surface finish, "Organic Metal Nanofinish", continues to be extremely dynamic also in early 2008.
The South China surface finish subcontractor Quan Yi Xing (Shajing / Shenzhen) decided to install a commercial size line which will be able to run all four "OM Nanofinish" processes,
- "OM Nanofinish General Grade" (which addresses the OSP market), 50 nm OM-Ag complex
- "OM Silver Nanofinish", addressing the ImAg market with only 90 nanometres Ag
- "OM CSN Nanofinish", with only 0.35 μm Sn showing the same ageing and multiple reflow performance as normal ImSn with 1.1 μm
- "OM Nanofinish Top Grade", the "Universal Nanofinish" addressing all surface finish markets including ENIG.
The line will start to be in operation in the second quarter of 2008. With this line, Ormecon's Nanofinish can be run in three lines worldwide. The first line (a vertical one) has been installed in Korea at YooJin end of last year, this line is now in operation and is delivering PCB samples with OM Nanofinish. A second line (horizontal) will be installed at ggp Peters in Germany, a fully integrated PCB producer.
In addition to these soon three lines (Korea, Germany, China), a pilot scale line is installed in Ormecon's headquarter in Ammersbek (close to Hamburg), Germany, where most of the samples for interested customers are finished.
