TECHNICAL Days in Europe

ICAPE Group has been specialized in technical consulting and Printed Circuit Boards sourcing (PCBs) in Asia since 1999. Each year, lCAPE Group develops its organization and level of services in all areas.

As the European leader in its field, ICAPE Group is aware of its field development. In order to better serve and structure customer needs, ICAPE Group has recently integrated an adaptable technical support according to the interlocutor and the current market.

For several months, we have analyzed and structured the current market needs in terms of technical and general training in the field of PCB and Technical Parts. We have gathered and developed these needs with the help of our engineers, experts in PCBs and Technical Parts, in order to synthesize them in 7 themes discussed during our Technical Days.


  • Single Sided and Polymer PCB
  • PCB Manufacturing Processes
  • Multilayer technologies and HDI
  • Flex and Flex-Rigid PCB
  • Products from CIPEM
  • Lighting and Power
  • Design to cost

These conferences are free of charge, and will be held in our conference center in Fontenay-aux-Roses, South of Paris.

Our Technical Days event can also be held in our Business Units all over the world or at our customers’ place. In general, lectures will be provided in English but could also be in French, depending on the audience.
