Season 2 - Episode #8 - Becoming part of the UK EV supply chain
In this latest instalment of the Electronic Specifier Insights podcast we’ll be speaking to Philip Johnston, CEO, of Trackwise, a manufacturer of specialist products using printed circuit technology, with a wide range of potential applications including telecommunications, aviation, automotive and medical.
FPC boards offer space savings in EV battery packs
Trackwise Designs has signed a three-year agreement to manufacture and supply flexible printed circuit FPC boards (flexible printed circuit boards) to a UK manufacturer of electric vehicle (EVs). The agreement has the potential to be worth up to £38 million over the period.
Flexible Improved Harness Technology for circuits
Trackwise Designs has secured a production order for its flexible printed circuit technology, Improved Harness Technology (IHT), for delivery in mid 2020. This initial order, in support of initial vehicle production activities, follows successful funded development activities last year for this UK-based designer and manufacturer of electric vehicles.
Increased production of unlimited length flexible PCBs
Trackwise Designs has acquired Stevenage Circuits, a UK-based designer and manufacturer of short flex and rigid PCBs, for up to £2.5 million. The deal enables Trackwise to increase production of its Improved Harness Technology (IHT), as well as expand its customer base and boost technical, sales, and operational expertise.
Flexible printed circuits reach further into emerging applications
Flexible printed circuits can help to save weight, increase reliability, and enhance the functionality of electronic assemblies and interconnects. New manufacturing techniques now enable FPCs of unlimited length to address emerging applications in demanding sectors such as aerospace and automotive. Philip Johnston, CEO, Trackwise explains more.
Comprehensive resource to support FPC design
Trackwise has just published ‘The engineers’ guide to multilayer flexible printed circuits (FPCs): technologies and applications’. This whitepaper provides information on FPCs and is an essential read for the electrical/electronic system designer about to embark on a project using FPCs or, indeed, anyone who needs to understand more about their benefits and applications.
3D Printing enabling personalised medical devices
One of the key industries to have successfully leveraged the advantages of 3D printing is the medical and dental industry. 3D printing allows for the creation of personalised medical devices to be streamlined, and it has also been used to improve surgical outcomes and deliver personalised medicines.
Multilayer flexible printed circuit spans wings of UAV
It has been announced that Trackwise has shipped a 26m long multilayer, flexible printed circuit (FPC), believed to be world’s longest, for distributing power and control signals across the wings of a solar-powered, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). The circuit is one of over fifty supplied by Trackwise into this vehicle.
Harness Technology extends application of multilayer PCBs
Trackwise announces the completion of a major milestone in the development of Improved Harness Technology - the manufacture of a 10metre/30foot 6 layer flexible multilayer PCB. Philip Johnston, Trackwise Managing Director, commented “We are delighted with the results of recent trials.
