Time- and cost-saving design support

Our technicians have the experience to advise on product & technology cost factors and provide rapid feedback on design solutions, build-ups, material selection, design rules, manufacturability, cost of different solutions, use of micro vias, gold plating, special laminates, etc.

We can reduce your design lead times through rapid engagement by our country based technical teams with you by phone, email or on site meetings. Working in common time zones and language makes it easier for us to provide real-time and in-depth support to assist you in cost effectively, helping you take your products from conceptual design through to volume production.
 

Design support with volume delivery in mind

Our design support teams are close by and pride themselves on providing fast and accurate feedback. They can advise on value engineering and cost down initiatives which are aimed at helping you achieve the best possible design or even redesign for cost effective PCB production from prototypes through to volume production.

Our technicians are experienced in PCB production. We work daily with Gerber files and customer-specific solutions; all the technicians have many years’ experience of PCB production, specifically, how to produce PCBs at the lowest possible cost without compromising your design goals. This service works equally well with either OEM or EMS customers and quite often, jointly.

 

All our expertise at your disposal

With an average of 55 new designs being tooled every day, for 2013, we made more than 12 800 new part numbers, and since our start up, we calculate that we have manufactured more than 65 000 unique PCB part numbers.

We combine local knowledge of your product with our broad experience from all market sectors, our technican teams experienced in all PCB technogies from basic single sided through to complex HDI and beyond.
