PCB must take the road of green development

PCB is not only the main mechanical support for fixing, linking and assembling all kinds of components, and integrated circuits of an electronic product, but also the basic component which can make electronic products have the advantages and characteristics of high reliability, good consistency, high mechanical strength, light weight, small volume, easy standardization and so on.
PCB can be called high-tech products in the electronics industry, but now the development of PCB is not only challenged by its own cost-effectiveness issues, but also from the peripheral energy conservation and environmental protection challenges.
Therefore, PCB must take the road of green development, and must put energy saving, consumption reduction and pollution control on the important position of industry development.
With the rapid development of the industry, the competition in the PCB industry is becoming more and more fierce. Carrying out energy saving and consumption reduction is not only the implementation of the national energy saving and emission reduction policy, but also an important means for enterprises to reduce production costs and improve the competitiveness of enterprises.
Despite the overall is difficult, the lengthy PCB process can be changed step by step, from part to part. It is believed that "long process" and "short process" will achieve energy saving.

At present, we can start from the following aspects,

First, we should make unremitting efforts to continue to promote digital inkjet printing instead of silk-screen printing. Promoting the use of 3D printing technology to replace the etching of PCB electronic circuits will be one of the ways for PCB enterprises to achieve energy saving.

Second, Vigorously promote compressed air energy saving program Compressed air is the most widely used in PCB enterprises. In most manufacturers, the energy consumption of compressed air accounts for 20% - 35% of the total power consumption. The energy saving of compressed air can make the energy saving work of PCB industry get twice the result with half the effort.
Third, Increase efforts in the PCB electroplating link, the use of energy-saving electroplating power, improve the efficiency of electroplating, this can also receive surprising energy-saving effect
For example, in the field of the hole metallization, organic conductive film direct electroplating technology has been recognized and used by more and more enterprises in recent years.
There is also a hole metallization process without formaldehyde emissions. It not only improves the working environment greatly, but also simplifies the treatment method, saves water and electricity greatly, reduces the operation cost greatly, and makes the horizontal transmission easy to automate.

Fourth, in PCB enterprises to promote energy-efficient motors, transform technology for PCB production equipment. Innovative Energy Saving mode, it is expected to get about 20% power saving effect.

At present, the PCB industry cleaner production has started, but still need to move forward in a solid way.

In general, the development of the PCB industry relies on technology and energy-saving two-wheel drive, but the current energy-saving environmental protection for the PCB industry is more important, and even directly affect the survival of some enterprises.
The realization of green manufacturing in PCB industry can not be achieved overnight. It must be regarded as the development direction of the industry.

This requires not only the promotion of laws and regulations, the guidance of policies, the formulation of standards and norms, but also the role of industry organizations to unite, lead enterprises, cooperate with each other, and coordinated development; finally, to abide by market rules and play the role of market mechanism in allocating resources.
