Our original set of process tanks have been removed and the bubbler etcher has been replaced by a spray etcher. This can etch boards in about two minutes per side.
We are also commissioning a basic photo plotter. This has a claimed resolution of 3000 dpi and uses high contrast litho film. It will accept Gerber format or PostScript files. As a substitute for 'proper' plated through holes we have this rivetting tool. More news on this later. The light table has been replaced with a refurbished and more compact model.
