Thumbs up Elprint.com PCB's prices reduced with 1/3

Good news to all diyers

Yesterday I had a one hour long meeting Managing Director Helge K. Nilsen and Sales Manager Nanna Høg from www.elprint.com at the TechMesse 2003 exhibition in Denmark.

I told them that I normally had my PCB's made in Eastern Europe,
because I could get them app. 30% cheaper there for the same quality and with the same delivery time.

They where very open regarding their price calculations, and we tried several different configurations on their online "PCB price calculator" at www.elprint.com. They had to admit that they couldn't compete to the prices that I normally pay for my PCB's.

When I returned three hours later, they showed med the result of some "new calculations" they have made. For small quantity proto types with app. ten days delivery time the price had been lowered with app. 33%, and they then asked if this was competitive. At the same moment as I told them that their new prices was very competitive, they uploaded the new calculation formula on their website for all to take advantage of this!!!!

This is absolutely a high tech proff company that listen to the small diyers, so please support them if possible! And take advantage of their new lowered pricing

You need to get MACAOS from their website.

By the way, they use only Chemical TIN => Flat pads, perfect for SMD.

And there boards are just fine... We use them to..

Nice work, it's good news for us DIYers in Scandinavia.

It's actually just a couple of weeks since I was at a guided tour at Elprint's main factory. It's located here in Bergen where I live now, it's also here Elprint started.
It was actually the founder himself who guided us and told us about the company.
He told us how the firm had evolved form the start and becoming what it is today, the largest grow came with the introduction of internet in the beginning of the 90ies.

Elprint does also have a couple of post-graduate thesis for the EE school each year and they have close relationships to the EE school(where I study) and the university here in Bergen.
