Photochemical fabrication, photoetching, and micro chemical milling of precision components are known as the E-FAB Photo Chemical Machining (PCM) process, along with E-FAB’s unique manufacturing abilities to produce high quality flex circuits is what E-FAB specializes in. The PCM parts are finished in several different ways: electroplated or coated with a dielectric layer, then separated, and/or bent, or formed, or supplied in flat panels, or separated into individual precision parts. In addition to precision PCM parts fabrication, and by incorporating many of the unique E-FAB PCM processes into flex circuits, E-FAB’s flex circuit capabilities go above and beyond what a typical flex circuit board shop can build. Many times, other flex shops will have E-FAB build the flex boards for them due to unique design and manufacturing requirements from their customers.

Our customers develop “state-of-the-art” products in the electronic, electrical machinery, microwave communications, telecommunications, military, medical electronics, implant fields, EMI and RF shielding, semiconductor industry, and printed circuit board industries.

We offer engineering assistance during the customer design and development phase in optimizing manufacturability while achieving cost and quality objectives.

We invite you to take a look around our website, and view a sampling of some of the items E-FAB manufactures. The items presented are only a fraction of what we do. Many of our customers come to E-FAB with specific products and unique ideas in mind which are proprietary in nature, and we are limited to talking in generalities about these products because of signed nondisclosure agreements. If you have a unique or proprietary product in mind, and you wish to discuss your idea in greater detail, E-FAB will gladly sign a nondisclosure agreement with you too.
