This film has a maximum image size of 11.9" x17.9" (302 x 455mm)
All of our standard resolution photoplotted films are imaged and processed using the latest high-tech technology, which is a fully automated process allowing us to queue and image films whatever part of the day - or night. This automation helps to improve quality by reducing handling - and of course means that we have a high capacity in production..
All of our films are imaged onto Agfa Idealine film 0.18mm thick polyester film which has a photographic emulsion coated onto one side. These are specially manufactured for consistent high quality results. They are both imaged, and inspected, in controlled environments which is crucial to their dimensional stability. For the most accurate films possible, please use this films in an environment of 21 deg C and 50% humidity.
We can accept various formats of data. Whilst Gerber remains the most common for the PCB and electronics Industries, we also have the ability to image from postscript, graphics files and Adobe Illustrator for our customers based more in the Graphics Industries. And, of course, common CAD formats such as DXF, GDSii can also be manipulated. These data formats listed above are only a small section of what is available - please contact us for further information and clarification. We are also able to provide a full drafting service whereby we can create your designs from drawings and descriptions.
Standard leadtimes from receipt of data to shipping are 24 hrs, but where orders are very urgent and prompt delivery is critical to a projects success - you can count on us to deliver by offering a sameday service - from receipt of order to shipping of films in the same production day ! If this service is required, please let us know as soon as possible during the day in order that we can get production time scheduled for your order.
Standard : We inspect the piece by eye for flaws, design inaccuracies and contaminations.
Enhanced : In addition to the standard inspection process described above, we will then document them via a Certificate of Conformance which we supply with the mask. Tolerances are per our standard tolerances. We will choose one measurement for length, and one for feature size.
Full Certificate : By selecting this option during the ordering process, we will inspect upto 10 customer defined measurements, with customer supplied tolerances. You will need to send us a document, or a separate layer of the design, showing us where you want us to take the measurements from. There can be upto 10 positions defined by the customer. These dimensions are then programmed on the co-ordinate measuring system and the mask is compared to this unique program. A certificate of conformity is given if the mask passes the inspection process.
