From selecting the proper connectors or components to choosing the best functional configurations, PCB Runner will help you to meet and even exceed all your application requirements.
PCB Runner has an expert engineering team to assist you starting from the early design stages all the way to production of your flex and rigid flex needs.
Flex PCB Manufacturer UK & Europe
As experienced rigid flex PCB manufacturers UK, we make flexible printed circuits suitable for a wide range of applications. Our rigid flex PCBs have both rigid and flexible areas depending on the application.
Our rigid flex PCB UK circuit typically has two or more conductive layers with either rigid or flexible insulation material separating them. The outer layers may have exposed pads, or a coverlay over the pads. We usually place conductors on both, the rigid and the flexible layers, but place plated through holes (PTH) only on the rigid layers.
Our flex PCB manufacturing is versatile. We have no minimum quantity requirements, and we can provide flex PCB prototyping for even small quantity requirements.
Advantages of rigid flex PCB
Although flex PCB manufacturing is more expensive process as compared to manufacturing regular PCBs, rigid flex PCBs from PCB Runner offer several important advantages such as:
- Smaller Size
- Fewer Interconnects
- Fewer Components
- Higher Reliability
- Lower Maintenance
As flex PCB manufacturing produces circuits that the user can bend and shape, it can fit in much smaller spaces where regular PCBs would not fit.
Rigid flex PCBs consist of rigid sections interconnected with flex circuits, and therefore do not require any separate interconnecting wires. Henceforth, this reduces the number of interconnects usually associated with regular PCBs.
As flex circuits link the rigid sections, connector pairs are not necessary for rigid flex circuits. This helps to reduce the total number of components in the project.
Why Choose Us?
As flexible circuit manufacturers in UK & Europe we offer boards with higher reliability, as they do not require connectors and wires. Manufacturing wire harnesses is operator dependent and there are chances of error. By eliminating wire harnesses and connectors, the product reliability goes up.
Wires and wire harness tend to break if operated with repeated flexing. Furthermore, this requires regular checkup and maintenance. As flexible circuit board manufacturers we make flex circuit boards suitable for bending and flexing. So, our customers can use them without maintenance.
