Protecno Becomes the First French PCB Manufacturer to Invest in Orbotech’s Nuvogo Direct Imaging Solution


Reading time ( words)

Orbotech Ltd. today announced that Protecno, a France-based electronics manufacturer and part of Groupe GTID, has purchased the first Orbotech Nuvogo Direct Imaging (DI) solution to be installed in France. Protecno intends to leverage the new Orbotech equipment to improve the long-term reliability of their printed circuit boards and thus meet the stringent electronics demands required for harsh environments.

Protecno specializes in small and medium series, multilayer rigid flex, hyper frequencies, HDI and special boards, serving highly demanding military, aeronautic, medical, transport and telecom customers. They are members of a consortium that is involved in a special project to design and manufacture a high density mixed microwave and digital board, on a multilayer material designed with at least two different electronic boards or based on a heterogeneous substrate material.

“Protecno needed a set of solutions for rigid and flex applications that require superior DoF (Depth of Focus) for panels with uneven topology, high line uniformity and sharp side walls to ensure high quality impedance control,” said Mr. Lucien Traon, Protecno CEO. “These and other capabilities unique to Orbotech DI, as well as local service engineers who understand our needs, made Orbotech the obvious choice for our production lines.”

“This is an important deal for Orbotech as it highlights the company’s abilities to support manufacturing processes within the highly demanding environments of military, aeronautics, medical and more,“ stated Mr. Sharon Cohen, President of Orbotech West. “Protecno is a long-time partner of Orbotech. They believe in consistently integrating advanced systems that enable them to grow and develop new manufacturing technologies for advanced projects.”
