Defence electronics manufacturing services
We have the flexibility of 3 surface mount production lines to suit a range of product complexities. We are also able to offer conformal coating services. This protects components from factors such as moisture, dust, salt, chemicals, temperature changes and abrasion.
Kitting and stores
Our manufacturing service provides secure and trustworthy management of military and defence products, with full traceability ensured to a key component level with kitting and storage processes.
AOI and X-Ray Inspection
Our boards are inspected by using a Mantis or ASH Inspex HD 1080p camera system, along with an FX 940 In-Line Automated Optical Inspection.
For PCBs that can’t be inspected visually, we have invested in a Nordson DAGE Quadra 3 X-ray inspection system.
Critical for industries with high regulatory requirements, our in-house X-ray PCB inspection not only ensures quality output, but also improves security.
