ANDUS-History ~ Over 45 years PCBs from Berlin-Kreuzberg
|Matthias Cordes takes a new task in another company.
Lutz Treutler is managing director again.
|ANDUS developed its own IMS PCB material "ZeroGap" to cool small high-power LEDs at high ambient temperatures.||ANDUS qualified a new PureGold surface for conductor paths and pads, that must withstand corrosive environments and where the surrounding media must not be contaminated with metal ions.|
|The ANDUS website goes online with a new link structure and navigation as well as a new developer platform.||ANDUS qualified a manufacturing process for ultra-long flexible printed circuit boards up to 5 m length for aerospace applications.||Matthias Cordes is additional managing director.|
|ANDUS invested in a thermal simulation software TRM from
Introduction of a new plasma process for high-frequency printed circuit boards.
ANDUS takes a wastewater treatment plant of the latest ecological standards in operation.
|ANDUS qualified inlay boards in
The Electroless Nickel/
Immersion Gold (ENIG) plant is released.
|The ANDUS technology CD goes online.
ANDUS is A-supplier by a airplane outfitter.
The product range will be expanded to backplanes and other PCBs to 5 mm thickness.
|A new alkaline etching line is put into operation.|
ANDUS passes the quality audit of the new ISO 9001:2008 standard.
|ANDUS qualified a new process for copper filled microvias.||With the introduction of LDI process ANDUS joins the 2mil technology.||The ANDUS website goes online with a new design.||ANDUS invests in a new
high-resolution AOI device.
|Due to increased technology consulting services, ANDUS changes to direct distribution.|
|The new DIN EN ISO 9001:2000 certificate replaces earlier versions.||Intensive research into thermal management is begun.||An impedance meter for recorded impedances is taken into operation.||ANDUS increases its investment in flex and rigid-flex technology. |
An 8-layer flex is delivered.
|ANDUS goes online.
Installation of an additional laser plotter.
First production of multilayer with 24 layers.
|ANDUS obtains the DIN EN ISO 9002:1994 certificate.||The first microvia is produced, at that time still using photovia technology.||First order using iceberg technology.||The first rigid-flex PCB is delivered.|
|ANDUS obtains UL approval for a first type of PCB.||A connection via modem is available to transfer PCB data, even if there is hardly any customer at that time who is able to use this equipment.||The first laser plotter for photo masks is taken into operation.||The first multilayer PCB is produced.||The first issue of the information flyer INFORMANDUS is published.|
|ANDUS installed the first Geagraf model by AEG worldwide. With the help of this punch tape technology, masters are digitalised manually.||The number of employees increases steadily.
Use of blue/red technology for double-sided printed boards: generation of the films from a multi-coloured master using colour filters.
|Single-sided and double-sided printed boards with photo masters using adhesive technology and drill templates define the initial technology.||Right from the beginning, it is ANDUS philosophy to manufacture high-quality prototypes using all available technologies.
ANDUS introduces the express system.
