What you need to know about choosing a PCB Assembly company in
In the modern world, electronic devices are everywhere. Whether it’s the
smartphone you use to book cinema tickets, the card reader you use in a café or
the latest games console, the chances are part of it will be a printed circuit board
(PCB for short).
In fact, recent estimates have suggested that the global production of PCBs will
grow by over 4 per cent by 2025, with an estimated value of over 72 billion
Someone has to assemble these which is why, if you are company looking to
build or manufacture electronic devices, then it pays to choose an effective PCB
Assembly company in the local London area.
What Are Our PCB Design Services?
PCB assembly is where you take electronic components and then connect them
to the tracks on a circuit board. Etchings on the copper sheet of the PCBS (also
known as traces or conductive pathways) are utilised within a non-conductive
substrate and it is this that forms the assembly before it is attached to a device.
There are three different ways that PCBs can be put together. Whatever way you
put them together, the process needs someone who can handle this carefully
and as precisely as possible.
One method is Surface Mount Assembly (often referred to as SMT for short).
This form of assembly first started in the 1960s although this technique would
go on to become more refined during the 1980s. SMT is now widely used by the
majority of manufacturers today. With SMT, metal tabs are soldered on to the
surface of the PCBs, allowing for higher circuit densities.
Plated through-hole technology (shortened to PTH) works with components that
have leads attached. The PCBs that are used for this particular technique have
drilled holes, allowing for easier assembly.
Electro-mechanical assembly (also known as box-build assembly) utilises a
number of elements such as wire harnesses, looms and moulded plastics in
order to form a complete assembly including PCBs with electronic components.

Why is this process important?
While it is worth knowing the different types of processes behind PCB assembly,
it is also worth considering why this is important. It is easy to forget when you
are using an electronic device that there is a method that allows each
component to connect (both input and output). As well as this, PCBs are also
important in terms of providing a form of mechanical support for the numerous
forms of electronic components involved in a device.
However, when it comes to design it is important to recognise what will be the
most efficient and cost effective form of manufacture. Considerations have to be
made to ensure that the product will efficiently perform the task(s) required at
the same time as keeping costs to a minimum.
This is also why it is important to choose the right business to handle your PCB

Efficient PCB Repairs
companies that offer this kind of service. However it can be difficult if you are
comparing two companies that have been running for a similar length of time.
This is why you need to consider the kind of expertise they offer. It is worth
asking who they have worked for in the past and to ask them to talk about how
their process works.
that they use. This should include mounting technology, board types, conformal
coating, cleaning and so forth.

Materials management service
As well as looking at the quality of their experience and customer service, the
company should be able to demonstrate where they source their materials from
and how effectively they utilise them. Some companies may allow you to supply
them with materials that you already have, while others may work with their
own. Additionally, some organisations may require that all products and
processes are sourced and carried out in the uk.
A good manufacturer will be able to handle all requirements quickly and efficiently.
In either case, you need to gauge whether what they have to offer suits your

Guaranteed quality control
When it comes to quality control, you want to know what the company will do in
order to ensure it (this should include certification such as ISO 9001 and UL
certification). Furthermore, what do they mean when they say it is
“guaranteed?” What will they do in the event that you are not satisfied?
These are all important questions that a PCB Assembly company should be able to
answer you in a way that means you feel comfortable working with them.

Frequently Asked Questions About PCB Design
To produce a multi-layer PCB, alternating layers of epoxy-infused fiberglass sheet called prepreg and conductive core materials are laminated together under high temperature and pressure using a hydraulic press. The pressure and heat causes the prepreg to melt and join the layers together.
There are a number of different PCB designs available, varying from single sided to multi layer and flexi-rigid. No matter what type of PCB design you require, the team at Saturn Solutions are here for you.
PCB design, also known as Printed Circuit Board Design brings electronic circuits to life. Here at Saturn Solutions we use the latest design and layout software to ensure you receive a high quality design and product. Our PCB design process includes combining component placement and routing to define electrical connectivity on a circuit board.
