Eurocircuits Continues to Grow in 2018
For Eurocircuits 2018 was another successful year building on our continued growth over the past 2 decades, finishing the year with a consolidated turnover of around 26.5 million Euros including, PCB services, PCBA services, eC-equipment and consumables.
During 2018 we faced and overcame several challenges such as, the implementation GDPR and the shortage of some electronic components.
The stringent way in which we implemented GDPR may have resulted in some of your colleagues no longer receiving our News & Information feeds.
If this is the case then we invite them to Opt-in to fix this problem.
Continued growth allows us to invest and develop new products and services for our customers as well as, investing in new processes and equipment that keeps you at the cutting edge of PCB technology.
Overall investment in 2018 was around 1.5 million Euros and in 2019 we plan to almost double that, though we do expect some macro-economic challenges in following 12 months and are well prepared for these.
In 2019 we will continue to focus on PCB Prototype and Small Series market for both bare board and assembly and our aim is to achieve another leap forward in PCB services we offer and to meet the challenges of our fast-growing PCB Assembly services.
Our software tools will continue to offer new and advanced features helping you to achieve “Right First Time for Manufacture” products.

Some of the Highlights of 2018
What was New in 2018
The Layer Editor
The Layer Editor is part of our online PCB Visualizer toolbox and is designed to help you quickly and easily correct any data output issues.
Use the tools available to create missing layers or correct layers that have data issues, this all works towards helping you to deliver data that is “Right First Time’ for manufacture.
The Solderpaste Editor
Like the Layer Editor the Solderpaste Editor is designed to save you time and ensure that the Solderpaste data used for the creation of the Stencil is “Right First Time”.
As part of our online PCB Visualizer toolbox the Solderpaste Editor allows you to easily and quickly resize, offset, add or delete and split Solderpaste apertures across the design.
New Via Filling with Resin
Via Filling with Resin allows for designers to locate Via Holes on component pads as the filled Via Hole is plated with copper after filling process.
As there are less Via’s on the board surface then there is more room for track, this in turn may lead to lees layers in the final broad layout.
New and Upgraded Base Material for our IMS pool Service
More powerful LED applications produce more heat and this needs to managed as heat has a direct impact on the life and short-term function of the LED.
To reduce the operating temperature and thus the impact of the temperatures we upgraded our IMS material to Polytherm TC-Lam 2.0 from Polytherm TC-Lam 1.3.
New and Upgrade Reflow Oven
We have redesigned the eC-reflow-mate and the eC-reflow-pilot software based on feedback from our customers to provide the most professional Bench-top reflow oven on the market.
In 2018 we started shipping our New and Improved Reflow Oven the eC-reflow-mate V4 and the feedback so is extremely positive.
Supporting even more Student Teams
Eurocircuits continues to support what we see as the future Electronic Engineers, helping them to achieve success in multiple innovative projects.
All the student projects the Eurocircuits support are without doubt a path to the future, whether it be by reducing C02 emissions or harnessing the power of the sun or helping people walk again unaided, they all lead to a better future for all.
Eurocircuits TV – Comes of Age
We started to experiment with using Eurocircuits TV as a medium to share technical information in 2017.
In 2018 this became a huge success and we have created, published and shared a host of technical and informative videos on our dedicated Eurocircuits.TV website.
We will continue to build on the success of 2018 and deliver even more content in 2019.
The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of EU Citizens was finally approved by the EU Parliament on 14 April 2016 and was enforced throughout Europe on 25 May 2018.
We followed the regulations stringently however, this resulted in some of our customers no longer receiving our News and Information feeds, we invite them to Opt-In and be Informed by join the Eurocircuits community.
Tips & Trick
We continued with our Tips & Tricks to help you our customer and covers a range of topics including how we manufacture, design considerations, how to uses our software tools, CAD software and many more.
FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions
In 2018 we completely reworded our FAQ section of our website and have added more topics and answers.
