Insulectro Names David Schneider Printed Electronics Product Specialist

Reading time ( words)

Insulectro Printed Electronics, a division of PCB materials distributor Insulectro, has hired veteran PE substrate expert David Schneider as product specialist as the company continues to expand its presence in the industry.

“We continue to recruit and hire the strongest talent out there,” commented Tim Redfern, Insulectro Printed Electronics President, “We’ve watched the PE industry evolve and diversify into many markets including wearables, in-mold circuits, medical, power, heaters, and more. We are excited to add a Product Specialist to focus on our substrate and film materials.”

Insulectro Printed Electronics offers advanced materials from such leading suppliers such as DuPont, Coveme, Chromaline, FLEXcon, Saint Gobain, and Kodak to customers looking for a single-source for conductive inks, substrates, and consumables.

David Schneider has held a variety of sales and operations positions at PPS, Inc., Olathe, KS. Most recently, Schneider was Plant Manager where he was responsible for all manufacturing and production personnel. Prior to that position, Schneider was North American Sales Manager for both PEMS Division of Nicomatic, Warminster, PA and Sterling Screen Printing, Shawnee, KS. He is a member of SGIA and a featured industry speaker.

Kevin Miller, Vice President of Sales for Insulectro Printed Electronics, commented, “We are excited to have David join our team as we grow our Printed Electronics business. What’s unique about Insulectro is that we are a one-source supplier for PE manufacturers with our complete offerings of essential and cutting-edge materials. With 11 stocking locations throughout North America, we are where our customers are.”

“We developed a strong sales and service model with our four fabrication centers on the PCB-side of our business,” Tim Redfern added, “That wealth of knowledge transfers readily to printed electronics. Now, Insulectro’s printed electronics division is poised to make a big impact in that industry.”

Recently, Insulectro was selected by DuPont to distribute its Tedlar protective film, and it’s in-mold and fired-on inks.

“DuPont is the predominant manufacturer of silver, copper, carbon, and dielectric inks. Insulectro Printed Electronics offers them all. Whether your application is membrane touch switches, printable heaters, or ceramic substrates, there is an advanced material for your needs. And, in the wearables market, stretchable inks are rewriting the electronics gamebook. We have a very robust line card for both inks and substrates,” Miller stated.

 “Wherever you are manufacturing printed electronics—Minneapolis, Chicago, Dallas, Silicon Valley, Southern California, Denver, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, Northwest, Canada, Northeast or Mid-Atlantic—we are there to service you,” Redfern concluded.

A Guide to High-reliability PCBs from Design to Specification

Creating reliable PCBs is an outcome of considering all aspects that can affect reliability as early as possible in the design process. The further down the design process, the more expensive and risky it can be to fix. As they say, everything starts with the design. Because a good board design improves the reliability of the end product and lessens the risk of failure.
