Rapid Prototype Assembly
Our quick-turn PCBA prototyping process can do prototype assemblies in as little as 24 hours from receiving your parts and short production runs in as little as 10 days, and our engineers are always receptive to the wide range of requirements you may have. Our consistent quality performance and on-time delivery promises to dramatically reduce the time-to-market of your upcoming new product.
How Build Clock works?
Turn-time (Clock) starts on the day all boards and parts arrive at our facility, and we will:
· Verify all parts before assembly begins.
· Missing parts are resolved with customer or by us (if this is full or partial turnkey service)
· There are no extra fees for holds due to incomplete parts. Should incomplete parts place projects on-hold, we don’t charge additional fees for restarting orders once parts are complete.
· 100% of orders are always shipped, unless otherwise requested.
· Orders are shipped on-time, unless partial shipment is requested by the customer.
How to avoid on-hold of assembly job?
Below Most Common Reasons but not limited can occasionally slow us down or prevent us from completing your project:
· Files submitted late from you.
· Files with missing or unclear information (e.g. missing Gerbers, Bill of Material, Centroid file or XYRS).
· Incomplete BOM Information (e.g. missing Manufacturer part number or Reference designator).
· PCB or parts mismatches (e.g. Missing Polarity Markings, Part Rotation, Package to Footprint Fit, Part Spacing and BOM and XYRS Comparison).
· Insufficient Quanitity or missing parts (if consigned).
· Obsolete Components or Customers internal part number only.
· Design does not pass a design rule check.
Job (partial turnkey or consignment services) begins once all customer supplied parts are received and engineering has been approved.
PCB Assembly Quality Control
· IPC Workmanship and ISO9001 Standards
Every PCB and electronic assembly is produced under the control of our ISO9001 quality management system. All workmanship is qualified to IPC-A-600 (for acceptance of printed wiring boards) & 610 (acceptability of electronic assemblies) with 2 internal accredited Certified IPC trainers and assembly technicians operating to IPC-A-600 & 610 standards.
· Components Quality control
To make sure the components to be used are good quality, incoming parts inspection is fulfilled by our highly skilled and trained engineers.
· 100% E-Test
100% electrically tested. In addition to our visual inspection and process checks we can also provide a full electrical testing solution for both bare boards and fully assembled products.
· Automatic Optical Inspection (A.O.I)
The latest surface mount assembly machines will check that the part used in the assembly process matches its specification and, when the PCB is populated, high speed Automatic Optical Inspection (AOI) machines can verify that the part fitted to the PCB is in the right place and matches not only the specification but is also soldered correctly.
· 100% ESD controlled
· X-ray inspection
BGA components are X-rayed to verify placement accuracy and to detect any solder bridges.
How to Get A Quote ?
· CAD-Generated BOM List in .xls, .xlsx, .csv, or tab-delimited text document (the information should be in a machine-readable format). The BOM needs reference designators, value, package/decal, description, and (manufacturer) part number. Learn how to do BOMs right here.
· Gerber files as generated by your CAD program. For any side with SMT parts we need three layers: copper, paste, and silkscreen (lengend).
· Your quantity and lead-time requirement.
