Inspection and testing are essential aspects of bringing a product to market. A persistent failure or recall issue can not only cost you money, but can also do irreparable damage to your reputation for quality. For this reason alone, it’s essential to partner with a PCB manufacturer who offers comprehensive circuit board testing.

At EMSG, we understand that quality control isn’t something you can compromise on. As a full-service supplier of turnkey board testing solutions, we will work with you to determine the best way of testing your products while maintaining acceptable cycle times.

Read on for technical details about our optical inspection, functional and in-circuit PCB testing services as well as information about our broader commitment to quality assurance. We are happy to answer any of your questions by phone or email or to arrange an in-person consultation at your convenience.

Circuit Board Testing Services

Different products require different testing routines. EMSG visually inspects under magnification 100% of the units we produce to make sure they meet all customer qualifications and expectations. Beyond that, we can provide several other services to ensure that every item leaving our facility meets your unique specifications.

Depending on volume and complexity, EMSG may optically inspect your product by using AOI, automated optical inspection. 1 Mirtec MV-3L and 1 Mirtec MV 3 OMNI 3D accurately detect component-level defects, such as reversed polarity, missing, damaged and wrong components. The system detects lead-level defects, such as bridging and insufficient solder, for components as small as 12-mil pitch.

If your product requires testing, EMSG can offer in-circuit testing with the Genrad 2287A. Additionally, EMSG can functionally test your assemblies using either customer supplied test equipment or our own in-house designed test equipment.

Building a Culture of Quality From the Ground Up

EMSG’s York, PA, production facility features an ISO 9001-registered quality management system that helps us maintain tight control over all aspects of our operation. IS0 9001 is an essential complement to our PCB testing and automated optical inspection services — one that helps us reduce the risk of common manufacturing defects from the ground up.

ISO 9001 is based on a set of measurable and scalable processes that are continually improved and refined as our business needs — and those of our clients — evolve. It is a critical tool for accountability and transparency and one that ensures all our PCB testing services are performed according to standard industry practices using well-maintained and properly calibrated equipment.

Industries We Serve

EMSG can provide PCB testing and inspection services that meet the requirements of many demanding industries. We complement this expertise with a comprehensive quality control process that ensures our products meet the benchmarks for reliability and stress resistance necessary in these applications.

Our PCB testing services are useful for consumer goods, telecom and communications equipment, energy and utilities, LED lighting, maritime applications along with others. To better serve clients in the medical device and food industries, we are registered with the FDA to provide sanitary manufacturing and testing solutions.
