Traditional flexible circuitry was used to create inter-connects for hardboards and sub assemblies. The old circuitry was clunky and difficult to work with. Automated Assembly™ engineers fully assembled flexible circuits to create products that use less space. Automated’s flexible circuitry is ultra light weight, yet it scores very high for material stability, density, and flexibility. Industry designers agree that flex circuitry provides tremendous options for utilizing valuable space.
Automated Assembly continuously invests in new technology. Acquiring the most state-of-the-art equipment is important to designing manufacturing processes that push our own automation limits. Automated Assembly intends to remain at the front end of new technology and be a leader in electronic assembly on flex circuitry.
Automated Assembly™ has many proprietary process for manufacturing on flexible circuitry. Our team of experienced development engineers have worked to refine these processes over the years. Our clients can have confidence in the quality and efficiency of our automation. We believe that investment in automation is the key to zero defect assembly and continuous cost reduction. We’ve listed some of our most recent manufacturing equipment investments below.
- Automatic Optical Inspection or “AOI” of all solder joints, part numbers, and polarities.
- Robotic packaging cells to give one final inspect of the product before the circuits are shipped.
- Automated blanking of circuits, with soft or hard tool
- Bar code capability for tracking in the medical markets.
Our Designer understands our material limitations and manufacturing tolerances, so when we design it, you can bet that we will build it to high yields.
Flex Circuit Prototype is a critical stage in the circuit design process. First of all the design needs to be verified for form, fit, and function. The next design function that is typically overlooked before the prototype is Design for Manufacturability.
