You should know those factors related to rigid flexible PCB cost
Rigid flexible PCB cost effect factors
Scoring is first Low Rigid Flexible PCB Cost Factor
Most rigid flexible PCB has use scoring.
Due to scoring process is the most economy shapes rigid flexible PCB method.
But what is rigid, flexible PCB scoring?
This is a “v” groove cut into surface finish of the rigid flexible PCB.
Both the top and bottom surface have to scoring process.
How to calcute the cut scoring of rigid flexible PCB
The main factor related to rigid flexible PCB cost is the cut depth of scoring.
There were two method to calculate the cut depth of scoring.
One is from rigid flexible PCB manufacture experience, it’s 0.017″.
The second calculate is 1/3 of the finished thickness.
But we should compare two above results, the lesser one wil be choose as scoring cut depth.
Rigid flexible PCB basic materials choose
You know there were so many PCB material types.
Differ PCB material have produce difference rigid, flexible PCB cost.
Some time the PCB material cost is 60 percent of total’s.
Due to so many PCB, basic material types, we cannot discuss all rigid flexible PCB basic material.
