Flexible multilayer PCBs extend harnesses to 10m

December 08, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Developing an Improved Harness Technology, Trackwise, managed to manufacture a 10m 6-layer flexible multilayer PCB.

Improved Harness Technology is a patented, proprietary technology that brings, for the first time, the proven benefits of flexible printed circuits, weight saving, space saving, improved precision, improved reliability, to system level applications.

“We are delighted with the results of recent trials. Whether or not this is the largest multilayer printed circuit ever manufactured – the next phase will see Trackwise manufacture a 25 metre multilayer PCB, a clear demonstration of the core offering of Improved Harness Technology, length-unlimited multilayer printed circuits to replace conventional wire harness or EWIS”, said Philip Johnston, Trackwise Managing Director in a company statement.

For this project, the UK company received financial contributions from Innovate UK and the Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI).
