Technology in our industry is constantly evolving. It’s not good to become complacent with your accomplishments and believe that you’ve reached the pinnacle of technology. The industry will pass you by. We believe in living by the words “Continuous Improvement.” There’s always room for innovation, for finding a more cost-effective solution that reduces cycle time and produces a better quality product for our customers. Therefore, in order to continue to meet these demands, we invest in equipment, in people, and in time to uncover that innovation. It leads us to say “YES” to our customer’s demands now and the vision to say yes to the next generation of technology.
APCT is proud to say yes to a Broad Range of Technologies. Our commitment to R & D and continued investment in equipment and people ensure robust solutions for our valued customers. The commitment to saying yes has not only led us to higher layer counts in through-hole technology, it has lead us to say yes to advanced and emerging technologies. We now routinely help design and manufacture High Density Interconnect (HDI) product.
APCT has divided the technology world into Standard, Advanced, and Development. There are many attributes responsible for determining which category a board is placed. However, for the purposes of this overview, the following are offered:
Standard Technology is Through-Hole technology up to 28 layers and
HDI technology up to 3 lamination cycles
Advanced Technology is Through-Hole technology up to 38 layers and
HDI technology up to 5 lamination cycles.
Development Technology is Through-Hole technology 40 layers or more and
HDI technology up to 7 lamination cycles.
“Our business model demands that we say ‘YES’ to our customers.” – Steve Robinson, President/CEO
Therefore, we strive to support leading edge technology, such as HDI designs, and & continue to meet and exceed the competitive turn-around times requested by our customers. We are determined to be a true partner that not only says yes to a broad range of technologies, but supports the build with the requested lead time at a competitive price point. Because technology and lead times are linked at APCT, we are very proud to say that we consistently produce “standard” technology faster than anyone in the world! APCT is designed to meet our commitment to “Best in Class” cycle times and to support virtually any rigid printed circuit board requirement for our customer.
