Presently multilayer ceramic (MLC) substrates are formed by stacking the requisite green sheet layers and laminating the stack under elevated temperature and pressure in a laminating press. Each cycle of the laminating press yields one MLC laminate, containing one or more substrates. Significant laminating press productivity improvement may be obtained by stacking the laminates vertically two or more in height and separating each laminate with a suitable metal plate. The multi-laminate stack is then placed in a lamination press, so that each cycle of the laminating press yields two or more MLC laminates.
