Trackwise Designs (LON: TWD) of Tewkesbury is claiming a world record – for creating what is believed to be the world’s longest multi-layer flexible printed circuit (FPC), which will span 26m (85 feet) within the wings of an unmanned aerial vehicle to distribute power and control signals.
Trackwise Designs plc is an established business that manufactures specialist products using printed circuit technology. The Company consists of two divisions Radio Frequency (“RF”) and Improved Harness Technology (“IHT”).
The RF business unit manufactures specialist printed circuits which are primarily used in the antenna infrastructure to support the 3G/4G mobile phone networks. However, the technology has a number of other applications which render the RF business a stable revenue generator.
The IHT division utilises the Company’s unique proprietary technology, a patented process that Trackwise has developed to manufacture unlimited length multilayer flexible printed circuits. The Directors believe that the technology has many applications but believe one of its primary uses could be to replace traditional wire harness used in a variety of industries.
