Lenthor Engineering Adds ESI’s GEODE CO2 Microvia Drilling System

Reading time ( words)

Lenthor Engineering, Inc., a California-based designer, manufacturer and assembler of flex and rigid-flex printed circuit boards, has purchased ESI’s Geode CO2 microvia drilling system including the optional automated loading and unloading stations.  

Rich Clemente, Lenthor’s COO stated, “We are very excited to add to our expansive ESI laser drill line-up.  This will be our seventh ESI laser tool on the production floor and our first CO2 tool. We continue to see an increase in demand for buried and stacked microvias in rigid-flex designs. The Geode system will greatly increase our capability to consistently produce micro-vias and reduce carbon debris when laser routing. The loading and unloading stations complement our dedication to automate whenever possible.”   

In further comments, CTO Dale Smith said, “The purchase of the ESI CO2 laser will allow blind vias to be lasered with no worries of cutting through the target pad. The CO2 has enhanced cutting performance capable for use with a wide array of materials, especially those used in rigid-flex constructions. The Geode CO2 laser will yield the cleanest via hole for optimizing reliability of the interconnect, satisfying customers whose products demand performance in stressful environments.”
