About Us

American Circuit Technology

Photo imaging is one of the critical steps in the manufacturing process for printed circuits. The quality of the finished product is determined by the care and attention given to the tools used in the photo room. With personnel who have worked in photo engineering for more than 20 years, American Circuit Technology is very familiar with many of the common registration problems caused by poorly designed registration pins and film punches. Fixed registration pins in your process eliminates the need for visual film alignment and taping films to panels. Pin registered panels will provide the repeatability needed to maintain critical tolerances for your production runs, large or small.

American Circuit Technology has designed a line of registration pins that are available in prototype and production quantities. Additionally, ACT provides personalized photo engineering services to meet your specific registration requirements.

Our registration pins and film punches can be custom engineered to your exact requirements.
