Ultra-fast Prototyping and Short Lead Times

Background

In the customer’s words: “Quite honestly, we’re tired of waiting.” This customer was producing a steady stream of complex designs but wasn’t particularly happy with the six weeks or more it took other vendors to turn around flexible printed circuit prototypes. The tighter trace and space of the designs reduced the pool of available vendors from 50 to 5.

Services & Solutions

Of those five, we were the only vendor that could offer quick turn around of these complex prototypes. Our laser services were also a deciding factor because they allow positional accuracy, enabling optimum registration from layer to layer.

Results

We turned out two prototypes per week and delivered 2-4 panels in just 10 to 15 working days – three times faster than any other vendor.
