Southern California PCB Manufacturer Working Hard to Support Production of Ventilators

Santa Fe Springs, CA (March 25, 2020) – Companies across the nation are ramping up their production lines to increase the ventilator capacity in the United States and around the world.  But not all companies are qualified to perform the work. Only a fraction of the approximately 100 PCB manufacturing companies in the United States is capable of quickly fabricating and assembling the necessary circuit boards. 

Royal Flex Circuits, in Santa Fe Springs, California is uniquely positioned to help out in the crisis.  It’s new production facility, less than a year old, features the latest machinery, hardware, and production methods.  The company has an inventory of copper-clad cores and prepreg, allowing it to start production as soon as the design files arrived from ventilator manufacturers.

Victor Hemingway, President of Royal Flex Circuits said “We have been producing circuit boards for ventilators for over 10 years.  We have extended production hours and now have two shifts of engineers and production-line employees making the circuit boards that control ventilators.  Our employees are putting in long hours, but we are so proud to be helping in this time of great need.”

Throughout the Covid-19 epidemic, as many as “960,000 Americans will require ventilatory support” ( US Resource Availability for COVID-19, Society of Critical Care Medicine, March 2020.)  A survey in 2009 identified approximately 160,000 ventilators in hospitals with another 12,700 in the Strategic National Stockpile ( Worst -Case Estimates for US Coronovirus Deaths, New York Times, March 13, 2020).  The large disparity between those two numbers means that potentially hundreds of thousands of Americans will not have the medical resources they need.

Royal Flex Circuits manufacturers rigid, rigid-flex, and flexible printed circuits. “Fabricating and assembling flexible printed circuit boards is a very complex process that requires a fair amount of materials, a lot of labor and great attention to detail,” said Hemingway. “But done correctly, the net result is a product that helps saves lives.”
