LED Flexible Circuits (Article2)

Last time, we have dicussed the feature of LED flex circuit, and this time, we will mention the way to make that Flexible circuit

1) The whole Flex circuit is the repeated of several section of FPC.

After several strip of FPC is connected by soldering, or using connector, we will do testing and then packing them in a roll, normally 3 meter, or 5 meter. It should be packing in vacuum packing. 

  2) Just make the enough length single FPC one time, without the soldering connecting.

 This is used in some special end-products which obvious soldering is prohibitted and more strength is needed. Of course, this kind of FPC is more difficult to make, becuase of manufacuturing artwork & equipment limited.  

Long Led Flex Circuits

Right now, we can make, maximum 3 meter (118 inch) one. Of course, the cost is more expensive than method 1. Popular length is 0.8meter(31.5inch), 1.0 meter (39.37inch), 1.2 meter (47.25 inch), or 1.8 meter (70.87 inch).
 
More long, more expensive, as the manufacturing will become more and more complex, and need high technology to control whole process, from developing, etching, coverlay lamination, outling punching.
 

 

Cuttable flex circuit

Sometimes, poeple like to cut the customized lenght at his side according to different requirement. 

 

 so during design process, engineer will consider cuttable length such as 30mm, 50mm. This will give customer great convenience. 

 How’s your opinion about them? Do you have any questions or problem when used this kind of FPC? Or want to try ours?
