Flexible Circuit Technologies (FCT) performs appropriate testing services for the given products that we produce and/or will employ custom customer required testing procedures, per requirements.
This includes prototype, first article, and production testing as required to meet customer requirements.
For bare flex production the most common testing is open/short testing near the final stages of production. Often this requires the development of a test fixture in order to maximize speed and lower costs, by testing full panels of the circuits that are produced.
For certain products an AOI (Automated optical inspection) test may be incorporated during production process.
For flex circuit assemblies the most common test is an electrical test of openings, shorts, on, off, or further customized testing procedure dependent on customer specification and requirements.
For more advanced sub-assemblies and for box builds, FCT can work with the customer to develop specific functional testing up to and including real-time access to online test results.
FCT’s Test engineering group is highly experienced in performing functional/electricall tests, hardware testing, software programming and test and develops specialized custom test equipment (inclusive of customized automated test equipment if/as needed) in support of meeting the testing requirements of our customers while also attaining the required through-put of product to meet large scale programs.
