Printed Circuits Adds Engineering Manager Paul Peters and New Plating Capability in 2018


Reading time ( words)

Flex and rigid-flex circuit board manufacturer, Printed Circuits has started 2018 with a few enhancements to their wet processing department, starting with the appointment of Paul Peters to engineering manager of their plating and wet processing departments.

"Paul Peters brings a wealth of wet processing talent and experience to Printed Circuits. We are delighted to have his skill set added to our engineering talent," said Ken Tannehill, president and CEO. Paul has 39 years experience in wet processing in the PWB manufacturing industry and has worked with industry leaders MacDermid, OMG, and Electrochemicals, as well as Printed Circuits in previous positions.

"The timing of Paul's hire was ideal as we have just added electroplated platinum to our final finish capabilities," said Matt Tannehill, executive vice president. "Electroplated platinum is desirable as a final finish when folks are looking to use flexible circuits in implantable devices for medical applications," Matt continued. "It is ideal when electrodes or circuits will come into contact with human tissue or fluids, which is typical in implantable medical electronics applications that are growing in popularity."

Research by SMT & Hybrid GmbH (now SMT Elektronik) was conducted just prior to the original publication of IPC-1601, which now provides detailed guidelines for the packaging and storage of PCBs, both from the PCB manufacturer and at the assembler’s manufacturing floor.

Reliability Takes on a New Urgency

Consumers wanted a reliable car that wouldn’t break down on the road; a computer that wouldn’t crash; a phone network that wouldn’t drop our calls; the plane we were hurtling across the sky in to stay in the air and land safely, with the wheels down. In retrospect, those seem rather simple wants, and the industry certainly wants to deliver.
