Isola has completed the final phase of construction of their new 118,000 square foot quick turnaround manufacturing facility located in Chandler Arizona. The facility houses corporate headquarters, a fully equipped, state-of-the-art research laboratory and the most recent addition, their new lamination and fabrication facility which was designed to serve the US fabricators need for quick turnaround and prototype business. The new manufacturing facility will produce copper-clad laminates and dielectric prepreg materials used to fabricate advanced multi-layer printed circuit boards (PCBs).
The new quick turnaround manufacturing facility is the first investment in a brand-new PCB materials manufacturing facility in the US in the 21st century. The lamination system was custom designed to allow critical path orders to be inserted into the process without interrupting the overall flow of production. This unique level of flexibility enables their production team with a cost-effective means to produce a low volume, a high mix of products very efficiently.
Their highly automated facility has completed all shakedown testing and has been certified for production. Customer qualification samples have begun to ship to Insulectro and Isola customers for several of Isola’s flagship products. Once the customers have completed their evaluations, they expect the systems will really start positively impacting their PCB and OEM customer’s time-to-market.
Sean Mirshafiei, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer said that they anticipate their new quick turnaround facility will provide an incredible amount of flexibility for their PCB customers that produce prototypes and small-lot production. Their highly automated and flexible production systems will reduce lead times and ultimately their end-user customers time to market.
The new facility is part of the Lotus Project, which is located near Kyrene Road and Loop 202 at 6565 West Frye Road, Chandler AZ 85226. With the continued concerns over COVID-19, a Grand Opening celebration has been postponed until further notice.
However, if you are interested in seeing the facility via virtual tour, we invite you to set up a web call with your local Insulectro or Isola sales representative. We would be happy to show off this new, gleaming facility.
