“We are very pleased to yet again pioneer a breakthrough production technology for the PCB industry,” commented Mr Hanan Gino, President of the PCB Division at Orbotech Ltd “By automatically fixing short defects which frequently cannot be repaired manually, this solution will enable manufacturers to achieve major operational cost savings, particularly as the complexity of board designs continues to increase. We have already installed several systems in manufacturing facilities worldwide and the results have been very favourable.”

Featuring Orbotech’s breakthrough, patent-pending technology, PerFix employs the advanced image acquisition and image processing techniques of Orbotech’s field proven SIP Technology™ for AOI combined with superior laser control. PerFix achieves highly accurate, repeatable and reliable results for advanced PCB applications – any time, every time – which are not possible with manual repair.
