Prism has secured a contract to supply printed circuit boards (PCBs) to a US manufacturer of niche industrial inkjet printers.
The US company’s latest product is an industrial inkjet printer which uses technology developed in the UK by Xennia of Letchworth, Hertfordshire.
Xennia undertook the initial design, engineering development work and production of prototype printers. It worked closely with Prism as a supplier of the PCB assemblies needed for the new printer.
Once the product was ready for commercial-scale production in the USA, Xennia recommended Prism as a continuing supplier of PCB assemblies.
Prism has assisted the manufacturer take the prototypes into production, further developing the PCB assembly designs and ensuring that the electronics meet the requirements of worldwide standards such as the Restrictions on Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive.
Tracey Stephens at Xennia said: “Xennia was very happy to introduce Prism to our customer as a result of the excellent service we received.”
David Dickin of Prism said: “Despite having access to global subcontractors, the US manufacturer contracted Prism to provide production and support. We have been delighted with this vote of confidence in our capabilities.”
The company is now planning to place more work with Prism, involving the company in further engineering and testing.
