Automated Assembly CEO, Scott Lindblad was honored to be interviewed by Cyndy Brucato for the “Greater MSP” Business show about the history of manufacturing flexible circuits. The show aired on January 26, 2013 at 10:30 A.M.
Automated Assembly Corporation was selected by Greater MSP as a great example of the type of advanced technology manufacturing businesses located in the State of Minnesota. Products demonstrated by Mr. Lindblad, are Automated’s expertise in using robotic equipment designed and built by Automated and are used to solder electronic components onto flex-circuitry.
Automated Assembly’s Expertise in Flexible Circuits
Flexible circuits, also known as flex circuits, is a technology for assembling electronic components on to flexible plastic or other transparent materials. Flexible circuits and electronic assemblies may be manufactured using identical components used for rigid circuit boards, allowing the board to conform to a desired shape or flex.
Automated Assembly are experts in flex and have a patented portfolio that includes the ability to solder circuits onto polyester further reducing manufacturing costs.
