Printed Circuit boards for every application

By working with our sister company, PCB Train, we fabricate more different types of printed circuit boards per year than any other UK manufacturer. Our PCB fabrication service offers huge flexibility over order scales, from prototypes and small batch PCBS through to high volume orders of 10,000+. No quantity is too small and no delivery is ever too fast for us. We are renowned for our competitive pricing, reliable deliveries, high quality PCBs, excellent technical support and for being the only UK PCB fabricator to provide a complete electronic manufacturing service.

With over 60 years of industry experience, we have developed an efficient and flexible PCB fabrication process designed to meet our client’s individual requirements. Our integrated approach, along with the fact that 95% of our manufacturing takes place in-house, means that we take complete responsibility for the quality of your PCB fabrication.

Our pre-production PCBs are frequently manufactured in our UK facility, pending the arrival of production supplies from our partners. For large production runs, we distribute PCBs manufactured by our carefully selected international partners. However, regardless of where they are manufactured, the entire fabrication process is overseen and managed by Newbury Electronics so you can trust that only one tooling charge is applied.

Each product is then quality checked in the UK and deliveries are consistently completed on schedule. See our guide for a complete overview on how PCBs are made at Newbury Electronics.

Why choose Newbury Electronics Ltd?

We are one of only a very few PCB manufacturers to employ the most up to date digital manufacturing process where all imaging is direct from digital data, and no intermediate photographic film tooling is necessary. This gives much better registration (both solder resist to pad and drill to copper land) and permits a finer track and gap capability.

FAQ's

We’re well known for being efficient and flexible in terms of delivery lead times. These can range from a mere 24 hours up to 6 weeks according to your needs.

We work with high quality base materials such as FR4, Polyimide and PTFE all available in in a wide variety of specifications, thicknesses and copper weights.

We offer a wide range of solder resist and legend colours. Finishes available are immersion silver, immersion gold over electroless nickel, Hot Air Solder Level, both lead-free and leaded.

All our technology and machinery is state-of-the-art. Front-end tooling is performed with the latest CADCAM software tools, with complete design rule checking. We use modern manufacturing technology, such as laser direct imaging, whereby the intermediate photographic process is eliminated. Each FR4 panel is laser scanned to image the tracking pattern. PCBs are drilled on automatic load and unload drilling machines. Plating and etching are processed on automatic lines to minimise manual handling. Legends are printed with digital ink-jet machines. Electrical tests are performed by automated machines.

Newbury Electronics are quality approved to UL and ISO 9001. Bare PCB production is electrically tested and automatically optically inspected. We use a variety of quality control methods including statistical process control, micro-sections, X-ray, chemical analysis, time domain reflectometry, and digital microscopy.

Our PCB fabrication and manufacturing customers could be anyone who requires a reliable supplier of PCBs. We attract those who appreciate experienced electronic manufacturing and a high quality end product. Our customers may be end users, development engineers, researchers, or contract manufacturers. Our clients also value local sourcing, confidentiality and good communications. We are happy to provide this. No quantity is too small and no delivery is ever too fast for us.

For standard construction PCBs, we just need a brief description of the nature of your PCB together with Gerber and CNC drill file data. For more complex requirements, we require detailed material specifications, and layer build-up drawings showing the exact construction of your multi-layer PCB.
