22 The PCB Magazine • October 2017 MacDermid Enthone Electronics Solutions Launches MacuSpec AVF 700 Process MacDermid Enthone Electronics Solutions, a MacDermid Performance Solutions business, an- nounces the release of the MacuSpec AVF 700 process, a high-performance electrolytic copper metallization for the filling of microvias in printed circuit boards. Ventec Shares Their Insights on the Laminate Market, Part I I-Connect007's Barry Matties sat down with the COO of Ventec USA/Europe, Mark Goodwin, to discuss the laminate market, the market segments behind that growth, and how Ventec has posi - tioned itself in the thermal management space. Orbotech to Supply Unimicron with Industry 4.0-compliant DI, AOI and AOS PCB Production Solutions Orbotech Ltd. today announced a multi-mil - lion-dollar agreement with Unimicron Germa- ny GmbH (formerly RUWEL International) for the purchase of Orbotech's direct imaging (DI), au- tomated optical inspection (AOI) and automated optical shaping (AOS) PCB production solutions. High-Throw DC Acid Copper Formulation for Vertical Continuous Electroplating Processes The electronics industry has grown immense- ly over the last few decades owing to the rap- id growth of consumer electronics in the mod- ern world. New formulations are essential to fit the needs of manufacturing printed circuit boards and semiconductors. Insulectro Inks Deal to Distribute Dupont Electronic Inks for In-Mold Applications Insulectro is entering a deal to distribute DuPont conductive inks for in-mold electronics (IME). Laser Patterning & Metallization to Reduce Process Steps for PCB Manufacturing This paper details a new methodology for the plat - ing of conductive features onto glass dielectrics. A laser is used to ablate material from a glass sub- strate in the desired pattern, and copper is "seed- ed" into these features using laser-induced forward transfer of a copper foil. Rogers Introduces CLTE-MW Laminates for 5G and Other Millimeter Wave Applications Rogers Corporation has introduced CLTE-MW lam- inates, a line of ceramic filled, woven glass rein- forced PTFE composites. CLTE-MW laminates were developed to provide a cost-effective, high-perfor- mance material for the circuit designer. This unique laminate system is well suited for applications that have limitations in thickness due to either physical or electrical constraints. Isola Group Names Industry Veteran Sean Mirshafiei Global VP of Marketing Isola Group, the leading global and local manufac - turer of copper-clad laminates and dielectric pre- pregs, has named industry veteran Sean Mirshafiei to a new position of global vice president of mar- keting. Sean is no stranger to Isola having held sev- eral positions in the company prior including di- rector of strategic marketing and business plan- ning, and director of high-speed digital products, among others. 'Can Do' in CAM Outsour cing Time-to-market has been the mantra for every successful technology company. The best among them have strong and integrated supply chains that march to the drum of the OEMs and EMS pro- viders that bring that technology to market. A big part of that success, especially in North America and Europe, is the ability for PCB manufacturers to turn around complex PCBs very quickly. The hall- mark of PCB production in these higher-tech, high- er-cost regions is flexibility and responsiveness. Supply Lines Highlights
