Flex for industrial applications

Dedicated areas within the Industrial market offer excellent opportunities for the use of flexible printed circuits and its advantages.

The latest innovations in industry are strongly supported by the usage of FPCs. More compact and cost-efficient products are possible with FPC-modules built to measure parameters such as position, angle and speed in machines for drilling, polishing and milling.

Growing requirements for miniaturization in electronic components lead to a higher packaging density and to more compact dimensions. Flexible printed circuits allow complex and individual special conductor layout. This results in following major advantages for industrial applications:

  • minimization of weight and volume
  • dynamically and mechanically loadable
  • reduced assembly costs
  • wiring as an intelligence carrier
  • shielding against electromagnetic interference
  • 3-dimensional design
