Flex pcb bend radius(2)

To measure the bend radius of a flex PCB, you will need a few tools and materials:

1. A ruler or caliper to measure the thickness of the flex PCB substrate material.
2. A flexible measuring tape or string.
3. A marker or pen to mark the bend radius on the flex PCB.

Here are the steps to measure the bend radius of a flex PCB:

1. Determine the thickness of the flex PCB substrate material using a ruler or caliper.

This measurement will be used to calculate the minimum bend radius.
2. Choose a point on the flex PCB where you want to measure the bend radius.

This should be a point where the flex PCB is bent or curved.

3. Place the flexible measuring tape or string along the inside of the curve, following the contour of the flex PCB.

4. Hold the flexible measuring tape or string in place and mark the point where it intersects with the flex PCB using a marker or pen.

5. Measure the distance from the marked point to the center of the curve using a ruler or caliper.

6. Multiply the thickness of the substrate material by the recommended minimum bend radius factor

(usually between 10 and 20) to determine the minimum bend radius for the flex PCB.

7. Compare the measured bend radius to the calculated minimum bend radius to ensure that the flex PCB is not being bent beyond its recommended limits.

It is important to note that the bend radius should be measured at multiple points along the flex PCB to ensure that it is not being bent beyond its recommended limits at any point.
