Estanflux’s broad coverage of the territory combined with its highly technical support team will greatly accelerate the adoption of Practicals’ low-cost process solutions throughout Spain and Portugal.”

Since 1996, Practical Components has been the world’s leading supplier of dummy components, which are the exact mechanical equivalents of live components, used when only the physical properties of the components are required. These components can cost as much as 80% less than live components, making them ideal for testing of solder processes, machine setup and other process evaluations. Practical Components is headquartered in Los Alamitos CA and has a worldwide distribution network. For more information, visit www.practicalcomponents.com
