Acupaq’s customer base with component distribution, prototyping, SATS or EMS activities.
As large scale carrier tape manufacturing followed the semiconductor industry shift to Asia, the “local” support infrastructure were left with supply challenges. This became further apparent as volume requirement reduced leaving customers with the challenge of absorbing long lead times, high minimum order quantities, tooling charges and shipping costs.
Acupaq embarked on a project to create a process that would eliminate all our customers purchasing barriers, enabling rapid, small to medium volume tape production without tooling charges and high shipping costs.
Drawing on our experience in carrier tape manufacture, Acupaq developed a rapid manufacturing process utilising our proprietary engineering techniques. This process is named swiftTape.
