LPKF Sees Demand Spike for PCB-Cutting Lasers
Machine and laser systems manufacturer LPKF Laser & Electronics AG of Garbsen, Germany, has reported an upswing in the demand for printed circuit board (PCB)-cutting laser systems. Orders have already reached more than €10 million (about $12.3 million) after only five months – sales of the systems in 2011 were about €6 million. The ultraviolet laser systems can precisely cut single printed circuit boards in any shape from a larger multi-image board. They require no mechanical tools or complex clamping systems.
