To laminate multi-layer printed circuit boards Candor uses a continuous copper foil lamination press, which is more consistent than a conventional press. Conventional lamination uses to thick steel plates that are heated up, using a lot of pressure to transfer heat to panels. Our CCF lamination process has a continuous roll of foil interlaced between manufacturing panels acting like a giant resistant heater directly against the panels. The direct heating is controlled by thermocouples inside the stack and direct computer lamination programs. This not only give us +-5% impedance calculations with ease (link to products) consistently due to even thickness and less squeeze out.
