Taiflex Scientific Co. Ltd, a provider of flexible copper-clad laminate (FCCL) for the flexible printed circuit industry, has announced consolidated revenues of NT$835 million ($26.56 million) for September 2016, slightly down by 0.7% from the previous month, and lower by 18.8% year-on-year.

Revenues for Taiflex’s Electronic Materials unit totaled NT$633 million ($20.14 million), down by 3.2% year-on-year, mainly due to weakening sales amid the end of the peak season. The Energy Material division posted total sales of NT$199 million ($6.33 million), up by 5.2% MoM.

Consolidated revenue in the third quarter of 2016 reached NT$2.44 billion ($77.6 million ), down by 7% from the previous quarter, and lower by 18.9% compared to the same period last year. The Electronics Materials division achieved 3Q revenue of NT$1.91 billion ($60.76 million), up by 24.1% from the previous quarter, and an increase of 15.7% YoY—another record high for the company. The Energy Materials unit posted 3Q sales of NT$526 million ($16.7 million), down by 50.8% on quarter and 60.2% YoY due to the significant decline in the solar market.

Decreasing Bend Radius and Improving Reliability- Part II

11/22/2019 | Kelsey Smith, All Flex
Many of the issues that arise when using a flex circuit come from a lack of knowledge about how to properly design one, especially when the circuit is required to bend. Many novices will design a circuit that calls for bending the flex in too tight of a bend radius, which can cause damage to the circuit and lower the reliability of the end product. This series of articles will focus on the seven key aspects to consider when designing for maximum durability and maximum “flexibility.”
