According to the statistics of relevant departments, the current annual output value of the global FPC industry is about 100 billion RMB, but the domestic enterprise market accounts for only about 10%. In the future, it is still necessary to continuously enhance the technical strength, expand the high-end market, and actively "go global" to enter the international market. Flexible circuit boards are adapting to the trend of miniaturization and mobilization of electronic products, and become indispensable components of consumer electronic products such as smart phones. As a global consumer electronics manufacturing country, flexible circuit boards have huge demand in China. Domestic flexible circuit board enterprises are in rapid development. Flexible electronic technology will drive the trillion-scale market. It is an opportunity for China to strive for the leap-forward development of the electronics industry. Become a national pillar industry. In recent years, flexible circuit boards have become a hot spot in the domestic capital market. Many companies have entered the strategic innovation layer and obtained the international leading FPC material technology. At present, domestic FPC production capacity is expanding rapidly. However, some experts pointed out that some core raw materials of FPC products are still in the hands of foreign-funded enterprises. Domestic FPC domestic manufacturers are less competitive in the international market. Sales are mainly concentrated in the domestic market, and the oversea market share is low. At present, domestic FPC companies seem to have a certain gap with foreign advanced manufacturers. However, with the rapid development of domestic mobile phones such as Huawei, OPPO and VIVO in the mobile phone market, domestic FPC has gradually realized its own technological innovation. Mastering the core technology, the gap with foreign countries is narrowing.

    • 2019-05-22

    In terms of cloud computing, it has entered a era of data explosion, and the demand for cloud computing is growing. The capital expenditure of companies providing cloud computing and cloud services around the world can also be verified. In 2017, the global capital expenditure in the cloud data center is 41 billion US dollars, and will reach 108 billion US dollars in 2021, a year-on-year increase of 2.6 eras. The construction of large-scale data centers will increase the amount of server PCB. Due to the large data flow and fast transmission speed of the data center, there are high requirements on the number of layers and materials of the PCB, which will greatly increase the demand for high-end communication PCB boards. 5G base station construction, 5G is rapidly advancing. It is expected that 5G spectrum will be announced in September. On the one hand, the number of 5G base stations will increase compared with the number of 4G base stations. In particular, in order to cover the blind spot area, many micro base stations will be provided, which will greatly increase the demand for communication PCB boards. On the other hand, due to the characteristics of 5G high-speed high-frequency, the value of the communication board will be greatly improved in terms of a single base station. Take the antenna as an example. Currently, there are no more than 8 antenna array units for 4G. 5G uses large-scale antenna array technology, and the array unit will reach 128 or more. Therefore, 4G base station antennas are generally 3, each 80 boards, and 5G. 6-12 antennas will be used, each of which is about 150. Because there are more 5G channels, the area and number of layers of each PCB will increase, and the size will increase from 15 square ceneraters to 35 square ceneraters. The number of layers is upgraded from double-panel to 12-layer board; high-speed high-frequency materials are required for the substrate, 4G unit price is about 2,000 yuan per square meter, and 5G is about 5,000 yuan per square meter. Finally, we measured that the PCB value of a single 5G macro base station is more than twice that of 4G. Fast turn PCB will surely seize this opportunity, vigorously develop high-speed high-frequency boards, and continuously improve its technological capabilities to meet the growing demand, welcome the arrival of the 5G era, and lead the trend of a new generation of high-tech circuit boards.

    Industry 4.0 is the inevitable goal of the PCB industry in the transition period, which is evoked by the needs of industrial transformation and upgrading. It is also an important solution to achieve leap-forward development. It is based on industrial automation, with an intelligent core that intelligently reflects the advantages of the factory. To achieve the vision of Industry 4.0 ,the PCB factory still needs to break through many challenges: First of all, many practitioners in the PCB industry do not fully understand the "intelligent production", intelligence is not equal to automation. Secondly, the PCB industry intelligent process starts late, and the foundation is shallow. The factory information preparation is insufficient, while the equipment model is outdated. What is worse, the database construction Imperfect and they lack of professional preparation; Once again, the industry has not yet developed a standard for building intelligent factories for human reference - from an implementation point of view, such a general specification example is unlikely. The cost of doing the whole plant intelligent layout is high and the process is full of uncertainty. Thus the risk is high. Although the road to achieve Intelligence of the PCB industry still faces many challenges, we are still full of confidence and hope for the future. we believe that in the near future, the PCB industry will be appeared to everyone with a new look.

    The PCB industry is a technology-intensive and capital-intensive industry, but it is still a labor-intensive industry. A large number of automation equipment requires manual operation and assembly line operations. With the improvement of robot performance and price reduction, "automation equipment + the industrial robot operation "replaces the traditional "automation equipment + manual operation" production mode will become the transformation trend of the PCB industry. Industrial robots for industrial pcb boards have become an inevitable trend. There are currently three mainstream industrial robots, including: SCARA (four-axis parallel joint robot), DELTA (parallel robot), and six-axis articulated robot (including multi-joint robots with six or more axes and derived dual-arm robots). The following examples illustrate three representative applications of robots: 1. Six-axis multi-joint robot for AOI inspection process We use a six-axis multi-joint robot to replace the workers responsible for the boarding, turning and closing of the two AOI machines. Each shift can complete more than 700 PCB rigid boards, and the overall efficiency can reach 1/min. This includes the AOI machine scan time). 2,SCARA robot is used for circuit board coil detection process We can use the SCARA robot to complete the loading and unloading of the matching inspection equipment, and realize the one-time detection of all the coils of the large-aperture board. For the small-aperture board, we use the SCARA equipment to perform the fixed probe and visually locate. With the probe to detect each coil, our equipment also effectively avoids the missed detection due to small aperture or large aperture. 3. DELTA robot for small circuit board cartoning process The Delta800 plus a vision system can pick out the qualified FPC stack and place it in the blister tray as required, which is no less effective than manual. His speed can reach 60 pieces/min, which can completely replace the manual sorting.
