Technical laminate is produced by pressing together at least two layers of a material, like glass fibre impregnated prepregs (base laminate). Copper-clad base material is manufactured by laminating epoxy resins / glass fibre mat prepregs with copper film. The term “laminate” is used as a synonym for base material.
For decades, C.A.PICARD has been one of the leading suppliers of hardened press plates and carrier plates for the base laminate industry (ccl).
C.A.PICARD is one of the leading partners for manufacturers of printed circuit boards. Circuit boards are the basic components that form the underlying basis of all electronics. In addition to our comprehensive product portfolio, we also offer our know-how for systems solutions in the areas of photolithography, soldermask, registration and lamination technology.

The precision and quality of a multi-layer circuit is, among other things, largely determined by the press tool. Therefore, selection and design of the tool is of utmost importance. It must meet the highest requirements in regards to precision of the hole distances, hole dimensions (for PinLam), parallelism, and flatness.
The life time of separator plates for multilayer production is not only affected by high stresses during the pressing process Separator plates are also prone to get damaged by handling and cleaning processes leading to premature repair expenditures and defects.
C.A.PICARD International, an established supplier of high quality press tools and separator plates for multilayer production has invested considerable resources into the development of a suitable material for multilayer separator plates. During this development market requirements as well as technical and process related demands have been taken into account for both plate and multilayer manufacturing.
C.A.PICARD separator plates
- Trouble-free production is guaranteed due to no distortion caused by variations in temperature
- Refurbishing is available quickly and at favourable costs
- High heat conductivity (less input of energy and time)

- High corrosion resistance
- High hardness (50 HRC = longer life time)
- Usable for all types of cleaning / brushing machines
C.A.PICARD accessories complete the program.
The bushings are arranged so that they can be exchanged, if necessary, without adverse effect upon the guaranteed accuracy. Bushing inserts are available not only for the standard slotted hole, but also for other configurations. C.A.PICARD registration pins are provided with centering facilitators so that de-pinning will be easier and quicker.
