Electronics Manufacturing Services Available for High-Mix, Low-Volume Production
A fully integrated manufacturing service offered by Federal Electronics (Cranston, RI; www.federalelec.com) puts together four key electronics production processes. The combination of fiber interconnect, copper interconnect, mixed technology printed circuit board assembly, and high-level assembly and testing is suitable for OEMs seeking high-mix, high-complexity, low-volume production of electronic components and assemblies.
“Companies developing and manufacturing complex electronic products that require cable and fiber-optic assemblies, surface-mount and printed through-hole circuit boards, and functionally tested higher-level assemblies will reap significant benefits with our new solution,” says Ed Evangelista, the company’s vice president.
The company controls all facets of material acquisition and the production process through an ERP system, so it can identify and eliminate bottlenecks as they occur. The system includes product documentation, development, and maintenance; development and implementation of functional test solutions for higher-level product assembly; surface- mount technology that processes µBGA and 0201 to 2-in.-sq components; a wide array of fiber-optic interconnect technologies; and harness assemblies consisting of up to 2000 connection points.
