Getting to Know Your Designer
In this issue, we examine how fabs work with their design customers, educating them on the critical elements of fabrication needed to be successful, as well as the many tradeoffs involved. How well do you really know your customer? What makes for a closer, more synchronized working relationship?
In this issue, the biggest names in PCB manufacturing share their economic outlook for the upcoming year and beyond. As you will see, they were all bullish on our industry, but there was some apprehension as well. No one wants to get burned by another the supply chain disruption.

All Flex Flexible Circuits & Heaters Achieves AS/ISO Re-certificationJuly 15, 2015 | All Flex
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
All Flex, manufacturer of flexible printed circuits and heaters announces re-certification to AS9100C and ISO 9001:2008. AS9100 is an international aerospace standard for quality assurance requirements of aerospace companies.
ISO 9001:2008 is a quality management system required for the military, defense, and aerospace markets where flexible circuitry is heavily used. These standards are important in these industries where high reliability is imperative. This re-certification marks the 14 year anniversary that All Flex has maintained the critical certification.
Operations V.P. Gary Ryan says, “The audit process is successful for us year after year because of our team’s commitment to meeting the intent of the standard, it’s how we operate every day working to deliver high quality parts on time.”
Upon successful completion of the comprehensive audit in the areas of sales planning, manufacturing, and purchasing, Registrar TÜV Rheinland of North America, Inc. granted the re-certification.
Quality Manager Rebecca Steinbauer says it’s truly a team effort, “The entire All Flex team demonstrates a commitment to controlled, consistent processes while finding new and creative ways to continually improve what we do. This makes compliance to requirements, as industry standards and our capabilities continue to grow, much easier.”
All Flex has been manufacturing flexible circuits for nearly a quarter of a century producing prototype and now high volume production. All Flex also provides comprehensive surface mount and thru hole component assembly services. Seven years ago the company added polyimide and silicone rubber heater circuits to their product line and offers custom, as well as stock, heater designs.

One of my great joys as a grandfather of eight is spending time with them at the park. It doesn't take too long until I'm getting stuck on a slide that is too small for me or on the seesaw, with me on one side and them trying to lift me. At that point, they learn some harsh lessons in physics and how heavy Grandpa really is. A seesaw is a relatively simple device, but it’s a great way to explain a rather complex concept in PCB design: design tradeoffs. Each decision made throughout a design comes with inherent pros and cons.
