Plastic electronics using excimer laser ablation - USA

Plastic electronics using excimer laser ablation - USA

Laser Direct Pattern Etching (LDPE) using high-power lasers and project optics can be used to directly etch thin metal layers on plastic substrates forming circuits. With this new method of patterning, thin metal circuits can be produced at very high production rates, significantly reducing the cost of circuit production.

Are you becoming E-wasted?

Are you becoming E-wasted?

The recent changes in electronics technology have caused a high rate of turnover for all types of electronic products. The replaced electronic products and systems that were made obsolete by new technologies are creating a fast-growing problem of ever increasing amounts of obsolete electronic gear that is accumulating around the globe.
