Turn Flex Printed Circuit Board for the Medical Industry

TCS Electronics manufactures turn flex printed circuit board (PCB) assemblies for use in a medical application. Manufactured from polyimide with FR4 stiffeners, we began with a customer-supplied print.

In making turn flex printed PCBs, several steps were involved. To prepare the panel, we placed Kapton tape over the gold fingers, and loaded boards in a surface mount board carrier. Configured using surface mount technology, the PCB was assembled using pick and place methods. Depaneling was done using a die cutter to separate the boards, and first piece, manufacturing, quality, and final inspection were conducted at the appropriate times.

The PCB, once complete, weighed .010 pounds. Throughout manufacturing, the tightest tolerance we upheld was .030mm. When all standards and specifications had been met or surpassed, we packed the PCB units in nested, conductive vacuum-formed trays and delivered them to our client.
