West Chicago, Illinois PCB fabricator American Standard Circuits has recently purchased and installed a new Burkle LAMV 125 thermal oil heated lamination press.

This state-of-the-art solution from Burkle incorporates the latest technology. Details of the thermal oil heated press, type LAMV include:

  • Press range: 20 tons – 2000 tons
  • Hydraulically operated
  • Thermal oil heated and cooled
  • Vacuum available
  • Operating temperatures up to 385° C
  • Platen size up to 1.400 x 2.350 m.

“This new press will give us the layer-to-layer registration and lamination thickness that we need as we continue to raise our level of technology. This will also prove beneficial when it comes to tighter registration as well as drilling accuracy for both location and depth-controlled drilling,” commented ASC President and CEO Anaya Vardya.
