Calumet has invested in the innovative technology and advanced engineering of Hitachi drill machines. Hitachi produces the fastest, most accurate, and most reliable CNC PCB drilling machines on the market. Hitachi drill machines provide the following benefits to Calumet and its customers:

  • Reduced bit exchange time using Hitachi’s quick insert changer
  • Chip clogging prevention using cyclone jet technology
  • Reliable broken bit detection accomplished with a unique method of counting chips and maintaining long term stability
  • Stable small hole drilling with minimal bit breakage using a front thrust spindle
  • Flexible tool management with the easy-handling tool cassette design
  • Panel scrap eliminated through the use of the tool height detector that prevents the use of damaged or wrong size tools

Microcraft EMMA Flying Probe Testers

Microcraft EMMA Flying Probe Testers

Penta HASL_LFSL with WISE PrePost Clean

Penta HASL_LFSL with WISE PrePost Clean

^ Top

Even today innovation, user- and customer-orientation, highest quality and non-pollution are the supreme objectives of PENTAGAL. Due to this philosophy PENTAGAL started to develop a vertical Hot Air Leveling System, which is more cost-effective, space-economizing, more available and ecological than present horizontal automatic Hot Air Leveling Systems.

Pluritech X-Ray Drill Machines

Pluritech X-Ray Drill Machines

^ Top

Calumet uses a Pluritec INSPECTA L to x-ray and then drill “best fit” tooling holes unique to each production panel. The unique tooling holes result in precise production drilling and an increase in multilayer registration accuracy.

Pola & Massa Debur

Pola & Massa Deburr

^ Top

The Pola & Massa further prepares the panel as follows:

  • An air knife removes additional debris from drilled holes
  • The board is then scrubbed with four auto-adjusted scrub brushes
  • Following scrubbing, the board goes through a rinse, a high-pressure rinse, and is dried.
  • The process is fully automated and managed through an Omron PLC ensuring consistent preparation and cleaning for every panel.

Schmid Develop-Etch-Strip (DES)

Schmid Develop-Etch-Strip (DES)

^ Top

The Schmid DES line has an innovative filter technology for the stripping process adjusted to the type of resist. This machine also has transport systems adaptable to all circuit board formats. Because of the very high mix of PCB requirements from customers, essentially customizing the DES step based on the characteristics of the board, is extremely important.

Schmid Strip-Etch-Strip (SES)

^ Top

The Schmid SES lines with innovative filter systems clean the entire stripping solution before it is returned to the tank container. Depending on the resist type a cyclone filter system, a drum filter system or a combination of both is used. The stripping process adjust to the type of resist then removes the remaining photoresist on the circuits.
