Ventec Raises Global Production Capability & Control with Increased Prepreg Treating Capacity In Taiwan

Reading time ( words)

Ventec International Group Co., Ltd. is investing in new prepreg treating capacity at its Taiwan facility to expand its global manufacturing capability, control and supply chain flexibility. The new treating equipment, which features a specially designed impregnation system, includes multiple independent pipe work and pumping systems that will significantly minimize downtime when switching between resin systems. The upgrade is in line with Ventec’s strategy to offer high mix, quick turn supply of a wide range of specialty prepregs and laminates to its global customer base in Asia, Europe, and the United States of America. 

Ventec’s latest manufacturing upgrade is designed for the production of thin-core laminates for use in the most demanding applications such as high reliability military, aerospace / space and other ultra-high reliability applications. With a capacity of up to 400,000 meters per month, the new specialist equipment can handle a wide range of glass fabrics from 1027/1037 to 7628 thanks to its superior tension control mechanism. As such it significantly ramps up Ventec’s global supply capacity directly from Taiwan for VT-901 and VT-90H polyimides as well as the full range of No Flow / Low Flow prepregs for rigid flex applications.

The new treater setup in Taiwan will be equipped with Ventec’s proprietary multiple stage filtration systems on the front end and 100% Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) for prepreg FOD-control on the back end. This ensures that all Ventec materials meet the highest standards of quality for all its customers including military & aerospace and automotive customers. Ventec’s Quality Management Systems are of course accredited with AS9100 quality standard, and conversant with applicable IPC, space agency and MIL-STD specifications.

“Taiwan is central to our strategy to drive long-term growth and expand our global leadership position,” said Jason Chung, CEO of Ventec. “The investment in Taiwan significantly increases our manufacturing capacity, drives production efficiency and accelerates the delivery of the high-reliability materials our customers demand.”

Mark Goodwin, COO EMEA & America added: “The investment in this manufacturing capacity increase at our Taiwan facility is driven by strong growth in demand for our high-reliability solutions manufactured on state-of-the-art machinery. Combined with our know-how in PCB base material technologies and our strong track record in global supply chain control, the capacity increase and multiple independent pipework design further enhances our capability to switch between resin systems quickly and efficiently. It allows us to offer high mix quick turn deliveries of a wide range of laminate and prepreg products. The front-end proprietary filtration, and backend AOI ensure, we deliver FOD free materials and can manufacture to meet the requirements of the highest standards such as IPC4101 Appendix A, for space applications.”

Normally, the holiday season is a slow(ish) news time, but this year just feels different. My opinion is that the technology industry banked up a whole bunch of innovations and new products during the pandemic disruptions, which are coming to market as quickly as possible. The November/December news is full of technology discussion, as my selections this week clearly demonstrate.

The industry news cycle seems to be picking up speed lately. Of course, 30 days into the quarter is about when public companies announce their results, and in the midst of this worldwide financial situation, we’ve got all eyes on anything coming out from our counterparts in the industry. I’ve noticed that global corporate results (Nan Ya PCB and TTM, in particular) do seem to be on everyone’s radar. In addition to financial news, trade shows are popping back up around the world—Europe, India, and a special report from editor Andy Shaughnessy, who took his own road trip to Raleigh, reporting on PCB Carolina, which had its own heyday this year.
