DYCONEX is pleased to announce the addition of scanning electron microscopy (SEM) to its service offerings. Scanning electron microscope images have a large depth of field and are high resolution, which allows for greater resolution and magnification of closely-spaced, complex features.
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.
DYCONEX is consequently following it's path to six sigma quality and lean manufacturing. Starting 2009, a black belt project was finished which improved greatly the acquisition process. Following that, in 2010 we launched 4 green belt projects with 6 persons successfully graded "green belts". These projects have significantly improved production processes and have the potential of more than half a million cost savings in 2011.
DYCONEX has joined the PhasedCom Eurostars project consortium that has started the development of an innovative shaped (non-planar) antenna based on novel, low cost, phased array technology. It will provide high speed broadband internet connections for aircraft, trains and other mobile communication platforms such as automotive applications.
