In my experience with flex the flex provider is the best place to go for these pallets. The competent flex and rigid flex providers will also provide the carriers if requested. Once you see what they are providing you, you could most probably make them yourself or locally through a machine shop. Good luck ....

I don't know of a Eurolander pallet source. If I was a Eurolander and wanted to find pallet suppliers, I'd call the suppliers of pallet materials and ask them which of their customers that I should consider.

Durostone CCR/Durapol IGM L200/Glastic CBC are the premier composites in the pallet industry.

A few years back when I was working in a Hybrid company we used carriers machined from aircraft grade aluminum. Its easy to machine on a Mill doesn't bend so easy when mishandled.The thing to know is do your flex circuits sit flat when placed on the carrier after being pasted. If they don't some sort of vacuum assist will be required. which then means a way of connecting it as the carrier, either arrives in place with say an arm that pops up to connect to the carrier with the vacuum. Or a hand connected tube before it moves into place. Hopefully you can avoid he specialist both of these options.
