Sierra Circuits' Equipment List

This is a partial list of equipment at Sierra Circuits. We invested $10 Million in equipment in last 2 years. We are one of the few PCB manufacturers actively investing in future capabilities.

For example, we now produce PCBs with as small as 1 mil (0.001") traces in our Microelectronics division.

As a commitment to reliable service, we generally install multiple numbers of hi-tech equipment. (E.g., we have two Orbotech Laser Direct Imaging (LDI) systems and two Printar Legend Printers).
