PCi Purchases Two CL Tech Flying Probe Testers

Reading time ( words)

Rigid-flex circuit board manufacturer, Printed Circuits, Inc. has recently purchased two flying probe testers from CLTech.

The CL Tech FP8 offers high pot test capabilities with pad sizes down to 37.5µ (1.5 mil) at a pitch down to 100µ (4.0 mil).

The CL Tech FP3+ machine offers high pot test capabilities with pad sizes down to 87.5µ (3.5 mil) at a pitch down to 200µ (8 mil).

Printed Circuit Inc. President and CEO, Ken Tannehill commented, "Purchasing two new flying probe testers will add capacity and capabilities to our electrical test department. They will help us accomplish the finer pitched work being designed into some of our customers’ rigid flex and complex flex designs, while reducing our cycle time. This will augment our efforts to provide our customers with improved lead time, quality and throughput, while reducing their over-all costs.”

Ventec: Contextualizing the CHIPS Act

01/05/2023 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson hears from Alun Morgan, Technology Ambassador at Ventec, and Mark Goodwin, Ventec’s COO, about the benefits and risks posed by new PCB-oriented legislation in the U.S. and Europe. Faced with a rapidly consolidating industry, especially in the face of mounting pressure from the Russia-fueled energy crisis, government intervention is a welcome prospect—as long as legislators are committed to addressing the full scope of the issue, including the supply chain’s migration to Asia. Ventec is hopeful that, having been called on to educate government officials on the challenges facing the industry, they will help spur future legislative changes that will protect and grow the industry’s interests.
