In order to adapt to the diversified development of the market, our company has focused on the research and development of PCBs with special processes and boards this year, and recently made a flexible and rigid board, which has been well received by customers.
Because the flex-rigid board is a combination of FPC and PCB, the production of the flex-rigid board should have both FPC production equipment and PCB production equipment. First, the electronic engineer draws the circuit and shape of the flexible board according to the requirements, and then sends it to the factory that can produce the soft and hard board. The CAM engineer processes and plans the relevant documents, and then arranges the FPC production line. FPC and PCB production lines are required to produce PCBs. After these two soft boards and hard boards come out, according to the planning requirements of the electronic engineer, the FPC and PCB are seamlessly pressed by the pressing machine, and then after a series of detailed links, the final production is completed. Because the flexible and rigid board is difficult and there are many details. Before shipment, a full inspection is generally carried out. Its value is relatively high, so as to avoid the loss of related interests for both the supply and demand sides.
Advantages: The rigid-flex board has both the characteristics of FPC and the characteristics of PCB. Therefore, it can be used in some products with special requirements. It has both a certain flexible area and a certain rigid area, which saves the internal space of the product. It is of great help to reduce the volume of the finished product and improve the performance of the product.
Disadvantages: There are many production processes for the rigid-flex board, the production is difficult, the yield rate is low, and the input materials and manpower are more. Therefore, the price is relatively expensive and the production cycle is relatively long.
The characteristics of the rigid-flex board determine that its application field covers all the application fields of FPC to PCB, such as:
Keypad and side buttons, etc.
Computer and LCD screen
Motherboard and display, etc.
