Frontline Software Enhances Hughes Circuits' Capabilities

Reading time ( words)

Orbotech Ltd. announces Hughes Circuits has purchased the InSight PCB pre-sales and pre-engineering software. InSight PCB is a web-based tool for managing and assessing incoming customer PCB data for sales people and engineers that are not CAM experts. From automatically retrieving comprehensive product information to generating precise summary reports, InSight PCB empowers sales and engineering people to work more independently, efficiently, and profitably. The result is faster and more accurate quoting and product engineering, complete customer data input in minutes, early detection of manufacturing challenges, and increased throughput.

Jeff Hughes, vice president PCB Fabrication, Hughes Circuits, Inc. said, “Our success is attributed to our strong focus on helping our customers go from new product introduction to production success. It is extremely important that early on in the design stage we identify unnecessary cost and lead-time design decisions. InSight PCB® helps us identify and convey this information to our customers quickly and accurately. Prior to using InSight PCB®, only selected customers received this valuable information due to the engineering overhead involved. Now, with the increased productivity gained by using InSight PCB, all our customers have access to this vital information.”

Ben Quarles, Software Solutions manager for Orbotech Inc., said, “We continue to focus on developing solutions that help fabricators reduce the cycle time of their pre-production processes while increasing accuracy and consistency. We are pleased that Hughes Circuits has joined the fast growing community of InSight PCB users.”

The design process is arguably the most important part of the flex circuit procurement process. The decisions made in the design process will have a lasting impact, for better or worse, throughout the manufacturing cycle. In advance of providing important details about the actual construction of the flex circuit, it is of value to provide some sort of understanding of the expected use environment for the finished product.
