Taiwan FPC connector manufacture process:
There are two types of FPC connectors : single-side and double-side, and their manufacturing processes are different.
The process for double-side FPC connectors involves cutting → drilling → PTH → plating → pre-treatment → dry film → alignment → exposure → development → graphic plating → mold releasing → pretreatment → dry film → alignment → exposure → development → etching → mold releasing → surface treatment → cover film → pressing → consolidating → nickel immersion gold → character printing → cutting → electrical logging → punching → final inspection → packing → shipping
As for single-side FPC connectors, it doesn’t need pre-treatment and post-treatment like the double-side ones. It is easier and involves this process cutting → drilling → dry film → alignment → exposure → development → etching → mold releasing → surface treatment → cover film → pressing → consolidating → surface treatment → cover film → pressing → consolidating → surface treatment → nickel immersion gold → character printing → cutting → electrical logging → punching → final inspection → packing → shipping
Taiwan FPC connectorquality identification:
From the above process, we can manufacture FPC connectors, but quality identification is very important to prevent the FPC connector wear and tear the product.
We identify the quality through optical image measuring instrument. It allows us to check if the flexible printed circuit can be small and precise enough to apply on ultra-thin or three-dimensional space electronics products.
Taiwan FPC connectorspecifications:
Besides its flexibility, it is also short, small, light, and thin. These are the trends in the electronics market, which is why the FPC connector gains a significant market share. It is perfect for the mainstream cellphone, notebook, PDA, digital camera, LCM, and other high-end electronic products, which all require intense wiring, are light weighted, and thin.
“Short”: in this fast-paced world, anything that is highly efficient can take over the market in time. FPC connectors are one of them. The circuit doesn’t need to be arranged, so it can be assembled fairly quick. All the circuits are arranged to save time and increase efficiency.
“Small”: due to the product integration development, all the digital electronic products are getting smaller. FPC has a great advantage for being much smaller than its competition PCB.
“Light”: FPC is made by polyimide or polyester film, which is very light in weight. It clearly increases the competitiveness.
“Thin”: in the basic structure of an FPC connector, we’ve mentioned this is thinner than PCB. This increases its flexibility to assemble the components in a limited space.
