PCB Laser Machine Market: Overview
PCB laser machines are used as either markers or cutters. A system used for separating and singularizing circuit boards from a large panel, is a PCB laser cutting machine. Whereas machine used to mark or etch numbers or logos on PCB, is a PCB laser marking machine.
No generation of dust particles by laser technology, which was seen in traditional methods like dicing saws or routers. This is essential in PCBs with optical components such as cameras lenses it also helps in minimizing failures in on board sensors. Versatility of lasers is helpful in operations such as drilling, cutting, ablating metals in various PCB materials. PCB laser marking machine are necessary as they aid in tracking and inventory control.
PCB cutting, marking and engraving/etching are the three main procedures that can be done with a PCB laser machine. Fiber laser is preferred for cutting operations whereas for marking both fiber laser and CO2 laser is used. For engraving through a PCB fiber laser is used. CO2 lasers cannot directly cut or engrave a metal hence it is not preferred for PCBs.
PCB Laser Machine Market: Dynamics
PCBs have applications in automotive electronics hardware circuitry, industrial equipment circuitry and consumer electronics from smartphones to X-rays machine all are made with PCBS. The sustained demand from each of this application is considered as the major driver of PCB laser machine market. Smooth and clean procedure coupled with multiple advantages over traditional mechanical methods such as no stress on solder joints is set to create upsurge in the PCB laser machine market.
At times, PCB laser machines can be prove to be time consuming owing to slow procedure than mechanical routers. Furthermore, the substrate thickness is limited for the laser machine coupled with high capital investment, high power consumption can hamper the usage and sales of PCB laser machine market.
