We offer kitted and turnkey assembly services. Whether you supply the parts or we do, our certified soldering technicians along with our flexible automated assembly equipment can turn out a quality product quickly.
We require the following files with your order. Please include them in a single ZIP file.
- Gerber Files
Please include all Gerber files (copper, silkscreen, solder paste, etc.).
- Bill Of Materials (BOM) Please send us your BOM in a Excel format. Your BOM should include:
- Quantity of each part
- Manufacturer part number
- Reference designator
- Part description
- Type (SMT, Thru-Hole, Fine-pitch, BGA, etc.).
- Package description (QFN32, SOIC, 0805, etc. package is very helpful but not required).
- Centroid File
It should include component locations, rotations and reference designators.
PCB Assembly Process
- Confirm the necessary files and order details.
- Order and receive the SMT paste stencil if necessary.
- Program our machines from the BOM and Centroid file, before the materials arrive.
- Materials are received in. Materials are audited before your job is run.
- If all materials are in before noon, the assembly clock starts that day. If after noon, the clock starts the next day.
- A SMT stencil and stencil printer are used to mechanically apply the paste.
- An automatic pick and place machine place the SMT components.
- A SMT reflow oven is used to reflow the solder onto the SMT components.
- BGA components are X-rayed to verify placement accuracy and to detect any solder bridges.
- Thru-hole parts are inserted by hand. They may also be wave soldered depending on the board layout.
- A final quality check is performed.
- The finished PC board assemblies and all extra materials are shipped back to you.
