Antenna production is as varied in its manufacture as the general flexible circuitry field. It is no wonder that solutions for making everything under the sun are equally diverse.
Preco provides a unique variety of tools for producing antenna, fine tuning the circuit, slitting, singulating, scoring, insulating, laminating, quality control and other finishing requirements.
- Plastics (PET, PEN, PP, PI, PVC, PMMA, PC, ABS, etc.)
- Paper (Coated Label Stock)
|LF, HF, UHF, microwave types||Systems strategies for all frequencies|
|Imaging format widths||As wide as 650 mm, depending on method|
|Antenna length||Formats from 6 mm to 3 meters (or greater) are not only possible, but welcome.|
|Trace or line width||Typical to 100 µm, but consistently achievable to 50 µm|
|Solder paste / conductive adhesive application||Either by screen or stencil plate|
|Testing||100% inspection systems available for our products|
|Antenna / process circuit combination||Producible and individually treatable in one format; promotes inclusion of displays, readouts, active on-board batteries, etc.|
|Web image consistency||Assures indexed alignment as well as a constant index pitch for down-line vision requirements for chip attach, etc.|
|Physical laser trim of antenna length||Quick, mass-production technique for uniformity to discourage attenuation.|
|Packaging||Mass-produced webs made into smaller rolls; systems for integrated, JIT variable information printing for lot personalization.|
