External factors to consider!
Summer greeting and useful PCB tips!
First of all, we hope you enjoy the summer-time, second, a short summer greeting and a reminder that we keep our offices up and running all summer, so you can stay assured that you have left your PCB matters in the best hands.
A few points to consider before vacation season kicks in:
We are open for business all summer, still, if your office is closing please let us know, so we can rearrange your shipment in time, if necessary.
Summertime is more than just individual vacation weeks. You have some national holidays as well. We kindly remind you to remember that the following dates are National Days off: 5th of July for the Czech Republic – 9th of August Singapore – 15th of August in the European Union – 26th of August United Kingdom.
Since we operate globally, offering our customers multiple suppliers all over the world, we are not affected by summer vacations.
Are you in need of PCB – give us a call or send us an RFQ?
A short pre-summer input from Josse, one of our Senior Technical Advisors:
Do you know why we always ask you for the number of heating operations?
If you plan to produce an advanced HDI board during summer, just remember that choosing the right laminate is important for the electrical performance of your PCB, and according to the necessary number of heating sequences.
For advanced HDI boards, it is important to choose the right laminate after seeing the number of press sequences needed. In some cases, they may be > 4, or if it is AnyLayerVia boards, even higher.
So, don’t be surprised if we come back and ask how many heating operations are needed when populating the board, as these must be included in the calculation as well.
There should also be room for repairs, removing and installing a new component.
All laminates have their limitations on how many times it is advisable to heat them up and cool them down again.
Tests performed by our manufacturers are shared with us, so the right decisions for your PCBs are made.
Happy summer to you all – enjoy some time off!
