As your manufacturing partner NOTE is able to offer services that take the stress out of PCB assembly. With extensive facilities and processes we are able to match your needs with our staff and equipment.
Surface mount assembly is becoming significantly more complicated with the advancement of technology and ever increasingly complex component packages. Having appropriate and up-to-date Surface Mount equipment and processes is an important part of any PCB assembly company’s road map. Staying ahead of customer requirements… At Speedboard we have 4 fully integrated surface mount lines. Each […]
Vapour Phase affords much better control and stability over the entire soldering process, compared to traditional reflow soldering, regardless of board characteristics. The Vapour Phase process works by heating the PCB, which has already been through screen-print and one or more pick and place stages, in the vapour of boiling Galden, an inert liquid which […]
Conventional or Though Hole (TH) assembly is still just as much a part of electronics as it was 30 year ago. Admittedly, not in the same scale or volume with the amount of SMD used in modern electronics, but most of your assemblies will still need power devices and interconnect. In our TH department we […]
The vast majority of PCBAs we produce are now double sided SMT with some TH parts. To guarantee repeatability and reproducibility of the TH soldering you want to automate the soldering just as you used to with wave soldering on single sided SMT boards. To that end we use a Selective Soldering process. Complex soldering […]
This is not new technology but still has its place in assembling PCBAs. At NOTE’s facility in Windsor we have a Lead Free Blundell CMS400 wave soldering machine fitted with Argon gas to help reduce dross and improve barrel fill. Through Hole Alternative… Wave soldering is mostly used for Through Hole only boards or Single […]
There will always be a need for some hand soldering on low volume, high mix work. Although we use automation as much as possible in some instances hand soldering is the only process that will do the job. Surpassing IPC Standards… Our hand soldering team is trained to work to IPC levels 2 & 3 […]
Using the very latest automated technology and UV curing, our dedicated conformal coating line at our Windsor facility can selectively spray boards requiring protection in harsh and extreme environments against ingress of moisture, dust, condensation and temperature extremes. We also offer manual spraying and rework of coated boards at both Windsor and Stonehouse facilities. Speed and […]
