WellPCB – “PCB Manufacturing Process” Guide


The PCB manufacturing process is an essential part of the electronic production life-cycle,Making PCBs is a complex process.

This final guide covers the most critical steps in PCB production.

Just keep on reading to discover more!

Among the key subjects on PCB Fabrication Process include:

  • PCB Design and Layout: This section outlines the precautions for PCB layout, precautions before PCB fabrication, and an introduction to pre-production engineering.
  • Production Prepare: This section briefly introduces the production preparation process.
  • Inner Layer:
  1. Inner Layer Imaging: This section briefly describes the Inner Layer Imaging consisting of three steps: Inner Film, Inner Exposure, and Inner Layer Development.
  2. Inner Layer Etching: This section briefly describes the Inner Layer Etching consisting of two steps of etching and unloading the film.
  3. Inner Layer AOI: This section briefly describes Inner Layer AOI is an automatic optical inspection, To check whether the core plate after etching has an open or short circuit, and the print is clean or not.
  • Lamination: This section mainly introduces the definition of Lamination.
  • Drilling: This section introduces mostly Drilling.
