New: Plasma metallisation

Flexible base materials as circuit board

Our innovative manufacturing technology with the patented process of plasma direct metallization turns flexible substrates into electrically conductive and solderable boards. This also applies to substrates that were previously not suitable for being equipped with electronic components. Thus, the FPCs assembled by us open up new application possibilities in the entire industry.
Solderable paper FPCs, for example, are cost-effective, open to diffusion and are therefore suitable for large-area applications such as wallpaper or advertising surfaces.
PET can also be used as a base material for FPCs. This plastic is cheaper than polyimide, has very good strength, high load capacity and low weight. Coated with a thin aluminium layer, which is made solderable by plasma metallisation, the PET FPCs can be equipped with components. In addition, materials provided by our customers can also be fitted with electronic components after a feasibility test at our premises.

To the press release

New Flex production line -
more reliable, lower priced and faster

With our state-of-the-art Flex production line, existing projects based on rigid circuit boards can be converted into flexible solutions to realize design advantages. In addition, groundbreaking new developments on flexible printed circuit boards can now go into series production in a roll-to-roll process. Our new Lumiflex production line thus offers a stable basis for flexible electronics for all mass markets. The Hechingen production site also offers our customers the advantage that individual wishes and requirements can be met quickly and reliably.

New technique,
new opportunities

As a matter of principle, the new technology can be used to make all conceivable base materials conductive and solderable by plasma metallisation. With our manufacturing expertise, we can realize novel concepts for thermoplastically molded electronics or transparent assemblies. The fitting of electronic components on flexible materials can reduce the complexity of the end product and at the same time enable new functions. The use of organic base materials also contributes to the recycling and composting of electronics.

Any questions?

Multiple advantages

  • Freedom of form: FPCs can be bent and folded. This enables connections and installations in all three dimensions
  • FPCs enable higher functional density and can thus reduce the dimensions and weight of an assembly
  • In comparison to rigid PCBs, FPCs can be exposed to higher dynamic and mechanical loads without damage
  • The processing of the FPCs in the form of rolls facilitates simplified assembly and logistics and reduces storage costs
  • Cost-effective processes are enabled through fast and automated secondary processing on large production lines
