We offer contract electronic assembly for quantities of PCBs that start at just 1 piece. However, we do not just manufacture small baches. Our automatic conveyorised SMD placement lines are capable of producing thousands of PCBs per day.
Delivery times start from 3 working days from receipt of order.
By processing a large number of small and medium sized batches, we achieve economies of scale.
This focus allows us to create an efficient manufacturing environment by using the best and appropriate technology for our production process. For example, instead of one very high capacity surface mount placement line, we use multiple pick & place lines.
Inspection and test has a choice of AOI's, fixtureless flying probe test, digital microscopes and comparators.
The need to constantly process many different PCB assembly production batches requires us to maintain a large capacity to set up both new tooling and repeat jobs and to continually refine this ability.
We respond rapidly and economically because we make in-house the long lead-time custom designed items such as PCBs, and ATE programmes.
One particular feature is our capability to laser cut in-house our own solder paste screens. It is standard in our production process to cut a solder paste stencil for every job.

BS EN ISO 9001:2000 (certificate no. FM 40205)
IPC J-STD-001D We have our own in-house qualified IPC J-STD-001D certified trainer. All our production staff are either qualified or in course of training to the IPC-J-STD-001 application specialist standard.
The standard, IPC J-STD-001 is entitled "Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies", and is the standard which controls electronics assembly manufacturing throughout the world. It sets out the materials, methods, process controls, and verification techniques for producing reliable high-quality solder joints.
