VAL-DE-REUIL, February 18, 2021
Trackwise is a dynamic company specializing in the manufacture of length-unlimited multi-layer FPCs using Improved Harness Technology™ as well as PCBs for infrastructure antennas. The company’s excellent track record and its presence in several key markets such as automotive, aerospace, medical, defense and security have pushed Trackwise to expand its machine production lines for 2021.
In addition to its current Direct Imaging Reel-to-Reel (DI RtR) machine, Trackwise ordered two subsequent DI RtR units by Altix to meet the various demands of its worldwide customer base.
Philip Johnston, Trackwise CEO, reveals more about this investment: ‘We are pleased to have secured these additional two units from Altix as part of the next stage of expansion in our IHT division. Altix’s cutting edge Direct Imaging equipment allows us to produce our own disruptive technology for applications across a wide range of industries, including electric vehicles, medical markets and aerospace. We are looking forward to being able to meet the growing demand for our IHT products enabled by this additional capacity.’
Frédéric Baradel, Altix VP confides: ‘We are delighted to strengthen our partnership with one of the most innovative companies in the industry. Trackwise’s repeat order underlines their confidence in our expertise to deliver high-quality systems shadowed by robust customer service.’
The Adix Reel-to-Reel Direct Imagingis a dedicated UV LED DMD solution for all processes (inner and outer layer, coverlay) based on the innovative ALDS-Power4 + ™ technology with 4 LEDs per head.
Trackwise is a UK-based manufacturer of specialist products using printed circuit technology. The full suite includes: Improved Harness Technology™ (“IHT”) and Advanced PCBs – Microwave and Radio Frequency (“RF”), Short Flex, Flex Rigid and Rigid Multilayer Products.
