Printed PCB resistors

Carbon printing at the cutting edge of laser-trimming technology

fine artWe’re known for the fine art of laser trimming, delivering the very low tolerances at very high volumes needed to keep pace with automotive innovation in electronics. Actually, we’re old masters of every aspect of the best printed PCB resistor process, eliminating programme risk as we deliver around the world from our manufacturing plants in Europe and China.
We print on the main substrates, with the confidence to explore more.
We’re as easy with complex carbon as simple silver.
Dielectric? No problem.
We live, breathe and think ink.
That’s why our customers value our input on product design, knowing we can make them as cost-effectively as possible without compromising the original specification.
And why they don’t have sleepless nights worrying about on-time delivery to the highest quality, even when they want us to vary product lines at high volumes.
