Quality Assurance / Quality Management


How we measure and control quality in electronics

Our established quality management system requires the performance of our manufacturing processes to be measured, analyzed and continually improved. We have refined our quality management system over our 30 years in business to ensure predictable and repeatable outcomes.

We employ a battery of quality control and assurance measures through our quality management system by strategically implementing various inspection and test stages during the PCB assembly and final box build assembly processes. This ensures all products are highly reliable, adhere to cosmetic and workmanship standards and comply with client supplied fabrication and assembly documentation.

Every PCBA and electro-mechanical assembly undergoes one or more of the following:

  • Solder paste inspection (SPI)
  • Pre-reflow inspection
  • 3D Automated optical inspection (AOI) post reflow
  • X-ray inspection
  • Visual inspection
  • In-circuit testing (ICT)
  • Dielectric testing or “hipot” tests
  • Functional testing
  • Final assembly AQL inspection and sampling audits
