Laser Direct Imaging: Advantages for Metal Etching and Electroforming Applications
Laser Direct Imaging (LDI) technology for
electronics production has gained signiicant ground
in recent years as a key production tool for enabling
the manufacture of increasingly complex patterns
and geometries with superior precision. The result
is the highest imaging quality on even the most
dificult jobs while reducing the operational costs
associated with building them. With increasingly
widespread acceptance and utilization of LDI
in industries such as bare printed circuit board
production, LDI’s recent crossover into metal
etching and electroforming applications presents a
similar opportunity to achieve signiicant process
enhancement while lowering expenses.
