FabTech© is a Microsoft Windows® based utility matrix software package designed by AGI. This information is typically used in the design of the facility, including process piping sizing and requirements, utilities demands, and more!

PROBLEMS? Utilities demands? HVAC design / engineering? Tool fit-up? Process piping sizing? Overall fab design? Facility system size?

ANSWER! AGI's FabTech Utility Matrix Program.

HOW? FabTech uses a database for each project and aggregates and diversifies all utilities, in groups specified by the user. The user generates a tool library to draw from.

2014 Additions >>>
> Provides diversification factors for each utility going to each tool.
> Customizable exhaust types
> DI water report showing makeup rate and AWN size based upon demand.
> Nitrogen report showing nitrogen tank sizes and refill frequencies based upon demand.
> Electrical – A new panel analysis tool has been added.

2015 Flexible & Printed Electronics Conference & Exhibition
February 23-26, 2015 // Monterey, California

Abbie Gregg, Inc. is proud to once again be exhibiting at the 2015 Flex Conference: Bringing Technology & Products to Markets.

The theme of 2015 FLEX reflects the steadily growing integration of flexible and printed electronics components in a wide-array of products and processes. The theme will be used to focus on how flexible electronics are demonstrating the value of light weight, low power products to non-traditional electronics markets, and thereby by delivering on the true promise of making lives healthier, safer, simpler and smarter.

For 14 years, this event has been the best place to experience the Printed and Flexible Electronics industry.
