Why use Flex & Flex-Rigid Technology?

Flex & Flex-Rigid PCB’s have been widely used in a variety of applications and markets for many years where space and size is critical to a product’s function as an interconnect either between connectors or to other rigid PCB’s.

At eXception PCB we are supporting more and more customers migrate to Flex & Flex-Rigids due to the benefits of its construction, some examples as follows:

 3D Interconnect
1 part component (as apposed to multiple rigid PCB’s and wiring looms)
Increased reliability
Space saving
Reduced labour costs at assembly
Fully tested as an integral single piece component
1 part inventory

Our Strategy

eXception PCB has in place a dedicated management lead Flexible Manufacturing Team. The Flexible Team now allow all variants of Flex & Flex-Rigid to be manufactured both well within industry lead-times and to a high quality.

eXception PCB manufactures Flex-Rigid circuits using single laminate or composite builds, down to 76ųm Track & Gap and also offers the incorporation of HDI technology (100ųm ųmVia – we were one of the first in Europe to offer this on Flex product!).

Our Flex Team are currently involved with Customer projects and are using their expertise to improve circuit integrity, reducing further lead-times and driving down cost.

eXception PCB has dedicated CAM Engineers for Flex & Flex-Rigid technologies to minimise tooling time and increase further the support and feedback to design authorities.
