PCB Assembly Services
PCB Assembly Services
Since 1995, EMSG has been a partner to businesses in a range of different industries and sectors. Printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturing is one of our core service offerings.
Over the years, we have expanded our technical and production capabilities to establish ourselves as a leader in this field. We specialize in short-run productions of 50,000 units or less and offer comprehensive inspection, testing and quality control services to help you create products and prototypes that meet your requirements.
PCB Assembly Processes: Surface Mount
The majority of printed circuit boards today are assembled using surface mount technology. Surface mount technology allows for smaller and more tightly-packed components as well as faster production times and lower overall costs.
EMSG manufactures IPC-A-610 standard PCB assemblies in both leaded and ROHS technologies. Our production facilities include Samsung placement machines that can operate at speeds up to 22,000 cph while handling components as small as 01005 package size.
To ensure proper quality control, we have an in-house x-ray machine through which our technicians can quickly identify surface-level defects.
PCB Assembly Processes: Through-Hole
Thru-hole PCB manufacturing is an older alternative to surface mount technology that is still in use in a variety of applications. Unlike SMT devices, it requires drilling a hole into the board itself where leads can be attached. This allows for stronger bonds and, ultimately, more durable products.
We run dual shifts to meet the thru-hole PCB manufacturing needs of our clients. Full or partial automation of the assembly process is possible thanks to our Universal 6287A axial insertion machine. Once the board is assembled, soldering is performed using Ace KISS-103 machines, which also have automation capabilities. Thanks to selective investments in these and other advanced tools, we can quickly process jobs that would otherwise require time-consuming hand labor.
Choosing the Right Process for Your Application
Surface mount technology PCBs are faster to produce, making them the best choice for commercial applications. SMT manufacturing is also the only way to manufacture certain small items, as it allows for more compact spacing between components.
Thru-hole circuit boards, while requiring more time to produce, are more durable and easier to modify if necessary.
One of the benefits of working with EMSG is that, because we offer both services, we are free to objectively assess your needs and recommend the process that will bring your product or prototype to life in the most cost-effective manner.
EMSG has provided PCB assembly services for manufacturers of commercial goods, telecom and communication equipment, medical devices and heavy equipment, as well as automotive suppliers, and military and aerospace contractors. We are FDA-registered and can complete assembly work if required.
Our York, PA headquarters features a 20,000 square foot production floor where we perform all printed circuit board manufacturing. We are proud to serve clients throughout the East Coast and in the Metro DC area. To request a quote from one of our engineers, contact our office today online, by phone or email.
