PCB Assembly

Our PCB assembly service is designed to meet the needs of customers who require reliable and cost-effective circuit board assembly. With our automated assembly line equipment, we are capable of providing turnkey services that include the sourcing of components and PCBs and quality control inspections. We offer a wide range of assembly options, including surface mount technology (SMT), through-hole technology (THT), mixed technology, and box build services.

Our team of experienced engineers and technicians ensures that all projects adhere to strict quality control standards and that all components are assembled in accordance with the customer’s specifications and IPC standards for electronic assembly.

Whether it’s a simple or complex PCB assembly project, we are committed to providing our customers with high-quality, reliable, and cost-effective services that meet their specific needs and exceed their expectations.

SMT Assembly Line

Our Surface Mount Technology (SMT) assembly line is equipped with multiple pick and place machines that can place components as small as 0402 on circuit boards as large as 500x370mm. Our 6 zone top and bottom heater reflow oven allows for reflow profiles with precision ramp and dwell timing that prevents damage to components while reflowing the solder at the correct temperature and time so it can correctly melt and create a solid joint with the component and solder pad on the PCB.
Our assembly line is optimized to handle both small and large volume production runs, offering customers the flexibility they need to meet their specific needs. Paired with our assembly line technicians, we can offer high-quality SMT services at an affordable price.

Our goal is to deliver a high level of assembly quality at an affordable price point, without compromising on the integrity of our products or the level of service we provide to our customers. We understand the importance of timely delivery and strive to meet our client’s delivery deadlines, ensuring a seamless experience from start to finish.

Overall, our SMT assembly line offers both quality and affordability, making us the ideal choice for all your SMT assembly needs.

THT Assembly Line

Our PCB through hole assembly line is fully equipped to handle a variety of components and board sizes. Our line capabilities include hand placing and soldering of through-hole components with lead free solder. Our line also includes a wave solder machine that ensures a high-quality, reliable solder joint for through-hole components.

Using wave solder technology on our assembly line yields several advantages over hand soldering. Firstly, it can significantly reduce the assembly time and cost as it provides a high-speed, efficient and consistent method to solder a large number of components simultaneously. Additionally, wave soldering reduces the likelihood of any soldering defects, reduces energy consumption and improves overall soldering efficiency, which leads to a more robust final product. Hand soldering is still available for the prototype one off boards as well as components that can not be wave soldered.

Overall, our PCB through hole assembly line with wave solder technology allows us to deliver high-quality products quickly and efficiently while minimizing costs and maximizing reliability.

Prototype and Small Batch Assembly

Our PCB prototype and small batch assembly service offers a cost-efficient option for customers who require fast turnaround times for small scale production. We pride ourselves on our ability to perform hybrid hand placing components with SMT without incurring major setup fees which results in significant cost savings for our customers. Additionally, we can pool prototype boards with our regular SMT reflow and THT wave assembly line jobs which helps to reduce costs and waste. Our team of experts use the latest technology and equipment to ensure high quality and precise assembly of your PCB prototype.

We understand that every project is unique, and our flexibility is what sets us apart. We offer bespoke assembly services and can customize our method to meet your specific requirements and budget. Our streamlined process ensures that projects are delivered on time and within budget, with no compromise on quality. Whether you require a single prototype or a small batch of PCBs, our skilled team is committed to delivering a service that exceeds your expectations.

Component Sourcing and Inventory Management

Our component sourcing ability and inventory management system is second to none, especially for longer term projects. We maintain strong relationships with top electronic component manufacturers, which allows us to negotiate lower prices on large orders, giving us buyer power. Our team is comprised of experts in the field of electronic component procurement and inventory management, who have a deep understanding of the current market trends and availability of electronic components.

We have a vast storage capacity that is equipped with ESD (Electrostatic Discharge) and moisture control measures, which ensures the safety and longevity of the components. We maintain a strict inventory management system to ensure an optimal supply chain and timely delivery of components to meet the project requirements.

Our component inventory management system allows for streamlined and efficient tracking of inventory levels. With the ability to log new inventory, the system ensures accurate records are kept, reducing errors and oversights. Project stock levels can also be easily managed, with notifications sent when stock levels fall below a predefined threshold. This ensures that projects can be completed on time and within budget.

Moreover, the system can provide valuable insights on future inventory requirements, allowing for proactive planning and purchasing. This reduces the risk of stockouts, eliminating delays in production and reducing the potential for lost revenue. With the ability to generate reports, the system also enables detailed analysis of inventory trends and usage patterns, facilitating informed decision-making.
