Insulated Metal Substrate PCB: Perfect Choice for High Power Device
When you’re designing a product that requires high power components, it’s important to choose the best substrate. An Insulated Metal Substrate (IMS) PCB is an excellent choice because it provides superior thermal conductivity and electrical performance to other substrates. It’s also easier to manufacture, which means you can save time and money while still creating the best possible product.
An IMS PCB is an electrically isolated copper foil laminate that has an insulating layer on both sides. It has a high thermal conductivity and can withstand high temperatures and electrical charges. It is also resistant to wear and tear and has excellent mechanical properties. This makes it ideal for any application that requires high heat resistance or requires parts that are exposed to high voltage or current loads.
If you’re looking for a material that can handle the high power requirements of your components, insulated metal substrate (IMS) PCB from PCBTok is the perfect choice. Learning more on how can we help you with your next project, please contact us today!

Advantages of IMS PCB
IMS PCB is a revolutionary PCB material that offers several advantages over traditional PCB.
IMS PCB has increased thermal conductivity, which means that it can dissipate heat more effectively than traditional PCB. This is important for any electronic device that generates a lot of heat, like computers and other electronic appliances.
IMS PCB also has improved mechanical properties, which means it’s more durable. This makes it ideal for applications where there is a lot of stress on the PCB material, like in cases where an electrical component might come into contact with another part of the device or with the user’s hands.
Additionally, IMS PCB has improved fire resistivity and electromagnetic shield properties. This protects against both fire and electromagnetic interference (EMI). These properties make it ideal for applications where safety is paramount—such as medical devices—or where there is potential for EMI to disrupt operation of other electronics nearby.
Finally, IMS PCB is more SMD component friendly than standard boards; this means that more components can be fitted onto one board without compromising performance.
Assembly of IMS PCB
The IMS assembly process begins with a single sheet of metal, which is then cut and placed in a chemical solution. The metal is then etched, cleaned, and etched again to remove all unwanted material. Next, the remaining metal is oxidized—this creates an insulator between layers that helps prevent electrical shorts.
IMS PCBs are used because they are thin and lightweight, but also because they provide excellent electromagnetic shielding. This makes them perfect for use in applications where there is a high level of interference or where electrical components need to be protected from outside forces.
Because IMS PCBs are so thin, they can be easily bent into any shape required by the design of the device they are being used in. This makes them easy to manufacture and assemble into final products.
Applications of IMS PCB
IMS PCBs are an excellent choice for high-power and high-frequency electronic devices. They have a high thermal conductivity, which makes them a good fit for products that need to transfer heat quickly.
In addition, IMS PCBs are well-suited to rugged environments, making them ideal for commercial and industrial applications. They can also be used in harsh environments like those found in aerospace, military, and automotive applications.
IMS PCB is used to make computers, laptops, mobile phones, game consoles, smart watches and other electronic products that usually has LED lights. IMS PCB has many advantages, including heat dissipation and stability.

IMS PCB Fabrication
PCBTok IMS PCB’s Standard Inspection Process is a comprehensive process that ensures the quality of our products. We use this process to ensure that the PCBs we manufacture meet the highest standards for performance, reliability and safety. The inspection procedure begins with incoming material inspection, which includes visual inspection, dimensional inspection and mechanical property measurement tests for each material.
Following this inspection, all raw materials are first cut into sheets before they are laminated onto a substrate using thin film technology. The laminating machine has several sensors that measure the thickness of each sheet as well as determine if there are any defects present on the surface of it. Once these sheets have been laminated onto substrates, they are cut into individual boards using automatic laser machines which ensure accurate cuts every time! These boards are then inspected again for any defects before being packaged individually for distribution worldwide!
Most IMS PCBs are made with a metal substrate, which is the material that is actually connected to other components. The main types of metal substrates are aluminum, copper, and stainless steel.
Aluminum is a very common material for IMS PCBs because it is lightweight and flexible. It can also be easily bent into different shapes without breaking or becoming damaged.
Copper is another popular choice for an IMS PCB because it has many positive attributes: it conducts electricity well; it is very durable; it doesn’t corrode easily; and it has excellent thermal conductivity.
Stainless steel is a strong alloy that resists corrosion due to its chromium content. It is often used for plumbing applications because it does not corrode easily when exposed to moisture.

“PCBTok is a PCB supplier that I have never thought of before. However, one of my colleagues suggested it to me and said that it will be the right choice if I want to buy high-quality PCB. Now that I’ve received my PCB order from PCBTok, I can confidently say that she was not lying when she told me about the quality of the product. I can also say that the personnel from PCBTok are quite friendly and professional as well. There were some problems with the Gerber files, but the PCB production team was quick to identify the error, and the order was turned around in less than a day. I’m impressed!’Ken Page, Electrical Technologist, Connecticut USA

I have used them for a long time, and I have never had a problem with their excellent service. Moreover, because I have always gotten what I wanted from them, you will see that they are the only company that I use for my business. Whenever I need PCB reverse engineering assistance, I always go to them. They are a great group of professionals who have a great deal of expertise with inquiries and concerns from their customers. You should try out their products and see for yourself.”Jim Padilla, Process Engineer from Singapore
“I run a small PCB manufacturing business and I am very picky when it comes to choosing my suppliers. I have tried many before and I can say PCBTok is definitely the best for me. They are not only reliable, but also, cheap and very easy to work with. They responded quickly to my emails and I received the product within a week of ordering. Honestly, I don’t know why wouldn’t you choose PCBTok!”Phil Harris, Licensed Electronics Engineer from Montreal, Canada
