All Flex is proud to assist Minnesota Wire with several new exciting technologies expanding their iSTRETCH product line using innovative stretch flex technology. Paul J. Wagner, chairman/CEO of Minnesota Wire, plans to attend the CES 2019 in Las Vegas this week to present these new products.
iSTRETCH cable is an elastomeric wire that stretches up to 40% without losing conductivity. Wrap an All Flex Maxi Flex circuit around Minnesota Wire’s patented iSTRETCH, add motion sensors and experience a complete revolution. No need for multiple circuits spaced at intervals. No breaks because of over-flexing. No longer just up, down, left and right. Double down on motion, stretch your flex, bend at will, and experience the freedom of full range of motion. The Maxi Flex circuits can be adapted to accommodate most sensors including accelerometers, thermistors etc. Thus, the sensors are housed in the cable.
Both All Flex and Minnesota Wire are Minnesota-based companies that work with the medical, defense, aerospace, and commercial markets.
Minnesota Wire will have product samples and literature available in booth #40731—Sands Level 2.

I recently spoke with PCB Technologies’ Jeff De Serrano, Yaniv Maydar, and Alon Menache about their new venture, InPack. They explain their plans to focus on advanced packaging, miniaturization, and other high-end technology, with much faster time to market, and they offer a view of the global market as well.

As a student of the printed circuit board industry, I am always interested in learning more about companies all over the world. When I connected with Abhay Doshi, managing director of Fine-Line Circuits Ltd. in India, I welcomed the opportunity to learn more about him, his company, and the Indian PCB business as a whole—it was all that, and so much more. Here’s what I learned.

Although it was originally proposed to hold a one-day face-to-face EIPC conference in Frankfurt, travel restrictions in Germany made this impractical. But the Technical Snapshot webinar format has proved so successful that it was decided to run an extended version as an alternative—two sessions, with three presentations each. It worked extremely well. The carefully selected program on February 23 featured excellent speakers, and seamless organisation added up to an outstanding event.
