Reading time ( words)

Brigitflex has upgraded its QMS from ISO 9001: 2015 and received certification to AS9100D: 2016 from certifying body TUV Rheinland. Brigitte Lawrence and her management team were highly engaged with the goal of driving organizational improvement during this transition. A special shout-out to Plant Manager Bruce Gunter for his hard work and dedication throughout this project. 

President and founder Brigitte Lawrence stated, “We have a number of Aerospace contracts in the queue, pending this certification and it was crucial to gain AS9100 certification as quickly as possible. Aside from the certification itself, I was very pleased to see the improvement in all of our business processes given the extreme complexity of our product. I would also like to acknowledge the guidance and facilitation of Steve Williams of TRAC, which was key to our success in this transition.”

Texans like to say that everything is bigger in Texas. That certainly seems to be the case for the SMTA Dallas Expo & Tech Forum. Publisher Barry Matties and I attended SMTA Dallas on Tuesday, and the tabletop show has now grown to 100 exhibitors, up from 92 vendors last year. It’s become more than a local or regional show, with some exhibitors flying in from Silicon Valley and the East Coast.

The Chip Shortage Leads to Innovation

10/03/2022 | Malcolm Thompson, NextFlex
The chip shortage is by no means over, with estimates expecting it will last into 2023. Some could see it taking even longer, such as Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger, who expects it to see shortages into 2024 due to those now impacting electronics production equipment. But if there’s any bright spot to be had, it’s that a crisis often leads to long-term solutions. In this case, it’s the increase in government funding for semiconductor production in the United States. Once the CHIPS Act proceeds, we can significantly accelerate building semiconductor fabs in the United States and work toward preventing future chip shortages that would put us back into our current situation.

Flexible Hybrid Electronics Design: Reducing Time to Market

03/23/2022 | Sean Nachnani, NextFlex
Emerging innovations in the flexible hybrid electronics (FHE) domain are enabling new applications across multiple industries due to their highly flexible structures and additive manufacturing processes. The smaller form factor, lighter weight, and conformal capabilities are ideal for IoT edge devices in health and fitness monitoring, military asset identification and tracking, automotive displays and sensors, aerospace radar, and soft robotics. Significant industry research led by NextFlex is optimizing the processes from design through manufacture for FHE products.
