Kurt Palmer, president and CEO of Burkle North America, announced today that APCT Santa Clara has selected a Bürkle WorkCell lamination system to enhance their PCB lamination capability.

Eric Schmidt, APCT vice president of operations, stated, “We are pleased to partner with Bürkle by adding their lamination press system–a “WorkCell” with two hot presses, a cold press, and a Bürkle Transport loading system.

“Bürkle North America has done an outstanding job supporting us with their state-of-the-art equipment, including Schmoll mechanical drills and laser drilling systems, and we expect that our strong partnership with BNA will only benefit APCT further with this most recent purchase of the Burkle press.”

Headquartered in Santa Clara, Calif., the company features four manufacturing sites and is considered one of the most experienced board fabrication companies in North America. APCT offers a broad range of printed circuit board manufacturing capabilities, including higher layer counts in through-hole technology, high technology HDI product, and the support of flex and rigid-flex builds.

Bürkle North America, celebrating 30 years serving the printed wiring board North American market, provides precision Burkle vacuum lamination systems in a floor efficient design, as well as machines from Schmoll Maschinen, the world leader in highly accurate mechanical drilling, laser drilling, imaging, and punching equipment.

Michael Carano is a noted subject matter expert with respect to process control, electroplating and metallization technology, surface finishing, and reliability. So, it was only natural that we sat down to talk about mechanizing an existing facility given today’s fickle environment. Will any of the CHIPS funding trickle down to bare board fabrication? What process can be adjusted on the factory floor? The focus needs to be more than just on manufacturing and getting work out the door, he says, but also process control.
