PCB Assembly

What is this Service?

Our expert PCB assembly service is available for quantities that range from a single piece up to 10,000 pieces plus. We specifically aim for prompt delivery of the highest quality product, and we have almost 60 years of experience in the PCB assembly field. Our production environment has been designed to cope with a very complex product mix of high demanding SMD technologies, including box-build. Our PCB assembly technical capability extends from hand assembly of through-hold components, to the fully automated placement of micro-BGA parts. We procure the highest quality components and manage inventories with a keen eye. Our PCB assembly delivery times start from just 3 working days from the receipt of your order.

Who uses the service?

Our client list generally consists of those who value an agile and dynamic printed circuit board supplier. We are responsive to the demanding needs of a competitive electronic market. It is ever-changing, and so are we. Such clients may be universities, development laboratories, professional electronic equipment manufacturers, racing car manufacturers, and many more. In fact, we’re able to cater to just about anyone who require electronics, and we’re always excited to take on a new type of client. Every single product, whether its production run is a simple 1 piece, or a huge 1,000,000 pieces, progresses through our development and pre-production phases in impressively short lead-times; a fact which we are consistently proud of.

What are the benefits to users of this service?

Newbury Electronics are dedicated to small and medium batch PCB assembly production, combined with high-quality rapid manufacturing, giving our clients short lead times and timely deliveries. We take no tooling charges for our assembly service because we have no external tooling costs. That’s why we choose to keep things as local as we possibly can. Because we manufacture PCBs ourselves, we ensure that every PCB is tooled with the optimum step and repeat and break-out tabs and fiducials. This allows us to achieve the lowest possible production costs. Our in-house laser stencil cutting ensures optimum solder paste distribution, which is essential for minimising defects on exacting ultra-find pitch assemblies. A generous investment in SMD placement and high-quality QA equipment gives us extensive production capacity, which we believe is of a higher standard than our PCB assembly competitors.

What technology and machinery are used for your PCB assembly service?

We have built an integrated quoting, buying, engineering and production control system to give us complete visibility and control over our PCB assembly and manufacturing processes.

The tooling of our PCB assembly production is performed using multiple Aegis FactoryLogix front-end tooling workstations.

Of our 9 SMD placement machines, 3 are installed as high capacity automatic SMD placement lines and 6 as standalone machines giving us the flexibility to manufacture many different products simultaneously.

We use wave soldering, selective soldering (robotic soldering of individual through- hole leads), reflow, and hand soldering. Using a highly capable infrared re-work station, we replace any component in-house as required by our clients.

We respond rapidly and economically because we in-house manufacture long lead-time, custom designed items such as PCBs, and ATE programmes.

We are the only UK CEM to in-house laser cut solder paste screens. It is our standard practice to cut solder paste stencils for every job.
X-ray inspection, Takaya flying probe test, AOI, first article inspection scanners, digital microscopes, comparators, and endoscopes all support our quality assurance and allow us to be as thorough as possible.

What quality control measures are in place for this service?

Management systems are approved to ISO 9001. Comprehensive ESD (anti-static) precautions are implemented throughout the production process. Sensitive components are stored in environmentally controlled chambers. Sealed component bags are vacuum re-sealed after opening when required. Extensive use is made of digital automated inspection equipment.
