In the first half of 2013 DYCONEX AG invested into several pieces of equipment that will further enhance production technology providing optimized PCB solutions for customers.
The purchase of the field-proven Orbotech ParagonTM-9800 Laser Direct Imaging (LDI) system - as the third LDI system in production - is another step in pursuing our strategy to convert all exposure jobs to direct imaging.
The Sorin Group Cardiac Rhythm Management Business Unit (Sorin CRM) has honored DYCONEX as the best supplier for printed circuit boards in 2012. The prize was handed over in mid June 2013 as part of the annual supplier event in Clamart, France.

DYCONEX has recently qualified and released to production its Paragon Ultra 200 Laser Direct Imaging (LDI) tool. This is the latest generation of exposure tools from Orbotech featuring maximum resolution and registration performance.
Artwork generation with Laser Direct Imaging systems gives both DYCONEX and its customers significant advantages over conventional exposure tools using film masters. The turnaround time for layer structuring has proven to be less than half, while expenses for consumables such as film materials are reduced.
Additional major benefits of LDI technology include the ability to improve layer registration, implement individual compensation correction per panel as well as perform step-by-step registration. These give our customers the flexibility to further tighten the requirements on annular rings and thus increases interconnect density. DYCONEX has demonstrated the Ultra 200 system operating at better than 5-micron layer-to-layer accuracy.
In combination with improved registration, the ultra-high resolution capability of the Paragon Ultra 200 enables DYCONEX to meet the future requirements of our customers. The production yield of features with lines and spaces of 20 microns and below is significantly improved. Going a step further, DYCONEX already demonstrated imaging capabilities down to 8-micron lines and 12-micron spaces.
Last but not least, DYCONEX offers full traceability of production panels throughout the entire manufacturing flow by individually numbering panels with LDI. This gives customers further options in monitoring and controlling their own manufacturing process.
