Announcement of Laser Cutting Investment

Preco Laser FlexPro LB2400

GSI Technologies is pleased to announce the addition of a Preco FlexPro Laser cutter to its Burr Ridge, Illinois facility. To broaden its service offerings to meet ever evolving customer requirements, GSI has strategically invested in printing and fabricating lines to support medical and other high precision converting requirements. Dave Austin, President and COO, stated “Having precision laser cutting capability in house will allow for additional component manufacturing processes to be controlled while being complementary to the services we already provide our customers. The advanced cutting capabilities of the equipment allow for cut to cut registrations as finite as .005″ (127 micron) or less which historically has been outsourced.” GSI purchased the equipment from Preco Inc. with whom GSI has maintained a long term business relationship. “Preco has been very supportive building a system that meets our specific needs and is a valuable partner” says Craig Mech, VP of manufacturing at GSI. “The requirements of medical electrodes and multilayer structures continue to push the limits of printed electronics and GSI has positioned itself to be on the leading edge of process capabilities.”

Preco Inc.’s Jason Thoen, Sales Manager of Laser Converting Systems, stated “GSI approached us with a project that required a number of technical solutions to meet their demanding specifications. Chief among these were challenging dimensional requirements as they relate to screen printed part registration. Once the screen printed features were precision registered by the vision cameras, a laser and high speed galvanometer beam deflection system was used to cut the matrix of parts from the screen printed sheet. We pursued a solution using a standard laser system configuration and then leveraged our in-house controls/vision engineering group and our process development team to provide a technical solution for GSI’s program. We appreciate GSI’s confidence in Preco’s technical capabilities to provide a solution to this challenging process.”

GSI Technologies noted in Kiplinger Letter Tech Alert

Kiplinger Tech Alert September 2015

From the Kiplinger Letter Tech Alerts dated September 30th, 2015. Among makers of printed electronics: GSI Technologies, based in Illinois; Quest Integrated, based in Washington; and Cambrios Technologies, based in California. Other well-known firms working on printed electronics include Corning, Boeing and DuPont. These and other players are betting on cheaper, better ways to add printed electronics to billions of products, many of which are increasingly being connected to each other via the Internet of Things. Expect to see printed electronics manufacturing facilities sprout in many parts of the U.S. where demand will be greatest. According to Ernst, a printed electronics plant costs about $20 million to $30 million to get up and running, far less than it takes to put up a semiconductor manufacturing facility. The latter can cost well over $10 billion to build.
