Fabrinet UK has upgraded its On-Demand facility to offer a Class 8 clean room. The unit, part of its high mix low volume manufacturing facility in the UK is already being widely used by customers across both A&D and Telecoms.

Adam White, CTO commented, “As electronics gets smaller and smaller, so the solder joints on the PCB miniaturise in the same way. For high reliability customers, it’s imperative that we avoid any small particles like dust in the environment. We are working with a number of clients across a variety of industries who are using this space however for both Medical and Telecoms businesses it has proved to be a valuable addition to our offering.”

Fabrinet’s Thailand clean room facilities are now also available to UK customers. These offer both class 7 and class 5 cleanrooms, being primarily used for optical transceiver manufacture. The company has recently started work with a print head electronics manufacturer, who has found the Thailand facility perfect for its needs.

Steven Healings, UK Managing Director said, “We are dedicated to offering the best facilities and equipment to our customers, and are constantly reviewing the latest machinery or systems that will allow us to support not only our own growth but that of our customers. We continue to invest a significant amount each to develop services to allow us to keep our customers competitive.”
