Report Description

Laser direct structuring equipment is used to manufacture electronic circuits in 3D molded interconnect device. 3D molded interconnect device is a thermoplastic integrated with electronic circuits. The laser beam of laser direct structuring equipment is applied for nanoseconds to manufacture 3D molded interconnect device. Laser direct structuring process consists of the following steps: injection molding, laser activation, metallization and assembly. In injection molding step, synthetic thermoplastic component is created through molding process. In laser activation step, a laser beam activates circuit layout in thermoplastic material directly from the computer without tools and copper attaches to the thermoplastic component. In metallization step, the thermoplastic component is cleaned and additives are formed in an electro-less copper bath. In the assembly step, the thermoplastic component which has high thermal resistance is ready for three-dimensional assembly.         

Rising demand to integrate more electronic circuits in smaller spaces is increasing the demand for laser direct restructuring technology across the world. Laser direct restructuring also helps to eliminate components in electronic devices such as eliminating antennas in a smartphone thus reducing assembling time and device production cost. This is also driving the demand for laser direct structuring equipment across the world. With the advent of laser direct structuring technology, mechanical components of an electronic device when integrated well function both as a mechanical and electronic component.

Rising demand for fabrication of 3D molded interconnect device is leading to the rise in laser direct restructuring equipment.

Automotive components manufactures use laser direct structuring equipment. The components produced through laser direct structuring weight less than automotive components made through traditional process. This reduces vehicle weight and increases fuel efficiency and vehicle millage. This is leading to the rise in laser direct structuring equipment in automotive industry.  

A major opportunity for laser direct structuring equipment is the introduction of 5G mobile communication technology. With 5G, the global mobile communication network will expand leading to a rise in smart phones/ mobile phones antennas which will subsequently increase the demand for laser direct structuring equipment.
