As part of our commitment to continuous improvement, not just within Microboard but with our vendors as well, Microboard visited TTM’s Forest Grove Facility. TTM Technologies is a global leader in technology solutions and PCB manufacturing. Focusing on quick-turn and volume production of technologically advanced PCBs and backplanes.
The purpose of the visit was to audit and review for approval the new PAL ENIG line, a critical step within the manufacturing process of bare PCBs. TTM Forest Grove has been a long-term, consistent, high-quality supplier offering collaborative support that has developed into a strong partner, building critical defense PCBs. Our teams have worked closely together through many complicated challenges. This partnership yielded highly successful and repeatable projects across four different assemblies with multiple complex designs in high volume.
