Flex PCB Cost Estimator is very important for a designer who is developing a flex PCB , A good flex circuit engineer not only complete layout design , but also control the production cost for projects or for company , Every day , we get hundreds inquiries , some designs really waste money ,big size , as a flex PCB manufacturer , we do like big size , but as a project ,We still suggest you control size , layers to save cost .
How many aspect to do flex pcb cost estimator ?
1. Layers , Is the most important factor, if single side flex is enough , never try more layer
2. Flex Board types : Single Pieces or in Panel , when do Flex PCB Cost Estimator , we consider material utilization rate , flex PCB material is roll unit , one of side canot be more then 250mm , when production , we will set working panel size , if waste lots , this will calculate into flex pcb cost .
3. Min Track/Spacing 2-3mil .
4. Min Hole Size not be too small , 0.25
5. Gold Fingers two option for flex pcb gold finger , hard gold or immersion gold , hard gold is much more expensive .
6. Copper Thickness 1/3 oz is normal, keep flexible , not suggest heavy copper .
7. Stiffener , Flex PCB connector have 3 option to select stiffener : Fr4 stiffener , Aluminum stiffener , Pi stiffener , if you Plug frequency ,suggest use more harder stiffener .
8. Surface Finish normal is immersion gold
9. Size more material utilization rate , more cheaper
10. Quantity The more the cheaper
Why donot RayMing use online flex PCB cost estimator ?
Flex pcb cost estimator isnot easy as rigid PCB cost estimator, Rigid PCB material size have lots of option , So we can choose different size material to do working panel Maximum possible utilization rate , But flex PCB material is roll size , one size must be less than 250mm . So we use online customer support to calculate exact price to avoid any mistake .
Ray PCB have rich experience in Flex PCB manufacturing and Cost Estimator , we deliver products on time and support low-volume and high volume production requirements to meet the different needs of our customers, contact us for a quote today!
