Printed Circuit Board Assembly Process

1. Specification

Ensuring thorough documentation upfront is essential for building a robust product and minimizing production delays. This includes a detailed Excel-based bill of material (BOM) containing component descriptions, manufacturer details, part numbers, quantities, and designators. Additionally, understanding the product’s functionality, performance targets, environmental requirements, and compliance standards is crucial. Providing this information promptly greatly aids in streamlining the production process and is greatly appreciated.

2. Problem Solving

We emphasize the importance of addressing potential issues and challenges at an early stage, particularly during the quoting process. While we may not specialize in PCB design, our expertise lies in optimizing products for efficient production. As an illustration, we can offer recommendations for bare board panelization that lead to cost savings or propose alternative components that are more readily accessible.

3. Supply Chain

Through our extensive expertise and forward-thinking approach, which encompasses safety stock programs for components and tailored solutions, we ensure the seamless operation of your supply chain, minimizing any potential disruptions. In instances where it becomes evident that a component is on the verge of obsolescence, we proactively suggest alternative options.

4. Assembly

We specialize in the assembly of surface mount, through-hole, and mixed technology components, utilizing state-of-the-art assembly equipment. Serving as a comprehensive integrator, we extend our services to include conformal coating and complete box build solutions based on your specific needs.

5. Testing

We adhere to the IPC-A-610 Class II and III standards in our manufacturing processes. Our inspection and testing capabilities encompass 3D AOI (automated optical inspection), X-ray examination, and functional testing.

6. Quality

We demonstrate our dedication to quality through the seamless incorporation of our quality management system. Our commitment to excellence is acknowledged and certified by NSF-ISR Registrars, emphasizing our unwavering pursuit of quality assurance and customer contentment. Upholding these high standards motivates us to continuously enhance our processes, ensuring the delivery of products and services that exceed expectations.
