EuroTech Group awarded AS9100C

The EuroTech Group plc is proud to announce that its UK manufacturing facility has been awarded AS9100C certification for the manufacture of PCBs.

AS9100C is a standardised quality management system for the aerospace industry. The accreditation recognises excellence in operational practices and quality management, and reflects EuroTech’s commitment to quality, safety and reliability. Not only does the certification open EuroTech’s services to new markets, it also gives existing customers further reassurance of the quality of EuroTech’s internal processes.

EuroTech’s AS9100C certification comes in the midst of a £1m investment programme at the company, aiming to further improve the company’s technical capabilities and efficiency. The two-year programme focuses on fine-line and thin core technology and will enable the company to process layers as thin as 50µm with ideal surface topography.

The first stage of the plan was implemented in January 2016 with a £250,000 investment in a new thin core inner-layer processing facility.

“We are constantly looking for opportunities to improve because we know that our customers need the best possible product, manufactured to the highest standard,” commented Managing Director, David Douglas. “AS9100C is just another step towards the ultimate goal: giving our customers the advantage in a competitive sector.”

The EuroTech Group plc is based in Devon, and provides both onshore and offshore PCB manufacturing services. With nearly 50 years’ experience manufacturing PCBs, the company prides itself on its commitment to high-quality customer service and the talents of

its highly-skilled workforce.



Polar May 2016 news:

1.  The 16_05 release of Si9000e now shipping adds the ability to goal seek for the loss tangent of a transmission line substrate. It does this by taking in a total attenuation at a given frequency from Atlas or other insertion loss measurement system, then modelling the copper losses from the cross section data – goal seeking with the solver then extracts the effective loss tangent at the given frequency.

This application note shows how to use the new capability.

2. Si8000m and Si9000e 2016: here is a reminder of all that   is new in the 2016 Si8000m and Si9000e – if you like to wait  for a release to stabilise before upgrading – now is a good  time to move to the 2016 editions:
