Eurocircuits seminar CAD2CAM4PCB

eC-placet_XY-table.jpg

Free – 1 day seminar that guides PCB designers to the optimum PCB design flow.

Helping our electronics design customers to define the best PCB layout flow possible and thus save time, avoid communication problems and achieve the best price and reliability for their PCB, is our goal. We want to share our knowledge with them during a one day seminar, held at our Aachen production facility.

The seminar covers 4 major themes:

  • PCB Production Steps and the influence of your CAD Data on the production process.
    A step by step overview of the production process. Each step is illustrated with cross section images and where appropriate short video’s illustrate the process. The presentation is given by production engineers from our factory in Hungary, with more than 10 years of experience in solving production problems. Attention is given to how customer CAD data influence our production process.
  • PCB Production Factory Tour: get a Live feeling on the different processes.
    This is a half an hour guided tour through the production facility in Aachen. See, feel and smell the production technology in action.
  • Your optimum PCB design flow! : PCB Configurator – Input data – PCB Visualizer: from CAD to Gerber to PCB Visualizer to CAM.
    About data formats, industry standards, creating output tips to configure your DRC settings in the CAD system

  • Your optimum PCB design flow: PCB Checker, PCB Solver & editing tools: PCB Tools (PCB Configurator, PCB Checker & PCB Solver) & Editing Tools (Panel editor, Classification wizard, Buildup editor, Outline editor, Milling- & Marking editor)

Virtual production tools to help busy designers to get their boards “right first time”

  • On time
  • Accurate to their intentions
  • At best total cost

We concentrate on two inter-related topics
Design for Manufacturability (DFM)

  • What are the features that increase board costs?
  • What makes my board harder or impossible to make?


Clear data presentation and clear order details

  • How can I be sure the data transfer is accurate?
  • Are there any data issues that will delay delivery?

Program for the day:

  • 09:00-09:30 Welcome Coffee
  • 09:30-09:50 Introduction
  • 09:50-11:30 PCB production overview
  • 11:15-11:30 Coffee break
  • 11:30-13:00 Factory tour followed by lunch
  • 13:00-14:45 Your optimum design flow : PCB Configurator – Input data – PCB Visualizer
  • 14:45-15:00 Coffee break
  • 15:00-16:30 Your optimum design flow: PCB Checker, PCB Solver & editing tools

What participants say about the seminar?

“I learned a HUGE amount of things on PCB manufacturing.
It was well worth every second of the somewhat long trip to get to Baesweiler.”

We hope to welcome you in Aachen shortly.

Week 3 of Eurocircuits countdown to Southern Manufacturing and Electronics show 2016

Eurocircuits are renowned for their quality Prototype PCB’s and Equipment but did you know we also provide solder paste stencils for precise application of solder paste to your design.

So the question is how do you achieve that professional production quality on a prototype design? Eurocircuits have the answer, we developed a unique free service of eC-registration (http://www.eurocircuits.com/ec-registration-system) where we place registration holes in a frame around your boards and registration holes in the stencil for precise, repeatable stencil alignment.

But the most impressive part to this is how to cost effectively align the board and stencil we have developed with a reusable system we call eC-stencil-fix you can see how it works below:

The Southern Manufacturing and Electronics show is free to visit and runs 9th – 11th February 2016 In Farnborough.

See first-hand how Eurocircuits can help you produce professional assembly of your prototype designs.

You can check out more of our prototype solutions on our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/eurocircuits

We look forward to welcoming you there!

Week 2 of Eurocircuits countdown to Southern Manufacturing and Electronics show 2016

It is the second week of our run up to the Southern Manufacturing and Electronics shows (http://www.industrysouth.co.uk/) and as promised another revealing taster of what you could expect to see at the exhibition from Eurocircuits.

As most designers know, creating a product is only one part of the process and a fundemental part of getting a product to market is a cost effective functional testing method which could be implemented at the prototype stage and continued through production and eventally repair stage.

Eurocircuits have developed the answer – eC-test-mate, a functional test designed into the product and forever accessible at any stage. You can see the eC-test-mate and have live demos of how this remarkable functional test to revolutionise your testing philosophy on our booth M79.

The Southern Manufacturing and Electronics show is free to visit and runs 9th – 11th February 2016 In Farnborough.

See first-hand how Eurocircuits can help you revolutionise your functional testing philosophy with our eC-test-mate.

We look forward to welcoming you there!

Electronics Design Show – UK

Eurocircuits is excited to announce that we will be unveiling our new eC-placer, our bench top pick & place machine on our stand at the Electronics Design Show this October.

Come and visit our stand for a demonstration of the eC-placer and all our SMD prototype equipment, meet your sales and support team, experience our software LIVE and discuss all your PCB prototype and small batch projects.

Busy designers can”t follow up all the design features that increase PCB costs or extend delivery times. Eurocircuits provides easy-access online tools to share our fabrication knowledge and help you keep your PCB costs down and your deliveries on schedule.

  • Smart online pricing/ordering menus provide real-time guidance on reducing costs and improving manufacturability.
  • PCB Visualizer analyses your Gerber data even before you get a price. It flags any issues which might delay delivery and then fills in the pricing parameters for you automatically.
  • Solder paste stencils provided by the same data used for the PCB production ensuring accurate production and delivered together with your PCBs
  • RF pool to specialise in cost effective RF PCB manufacture
  • IMS pool increasing in popularity, Insulated Metal substrates are a key material in the LED lighting industry
  • SMD prototype assembly equipment specially designed to aid the manufacture of prototype and small series products
  • eC-consumables allow a one stop shop to assemble your PCB”s
