CER’s PCB assembly services extend beyond board population. Our industry partners offer PCB design services along with manufacturing services for bare boards. CER offers turnkey solutions including component sourcing and purchasing, inventory management and warehousing or, alternatively, customers can source and supply all materials and deliver them to us as needed.
CER has extensive experience working with hybrid board assemblies that include SMT, THT, and mechanically fastened components (ie: heat sinks, connectors, etc.). Any board that we assemble can be fully tested, programmed/configured, and/or conformal coated if required, and be packaged and shipped.
CER is able to receive materials and quickly ship fully populated boards to our customers. We have automated equipment to form the leads of any style of component while keeping labor costs and time to a minimum. All of our boards are populated on slide-lines that feed directly into our wave soldering equipment. A group of experienced operators inspect and rework all of the completed boards to assure that our customers receive a product that meets or exceeds specifications.
CER operates a Surface-Mount line which includes a Pick-and-Place machine, solder paste printer and an SMT reflow oven. Our Pick-and-Place machine can handle passive components of any size using optical placement technology and active components such as BGAs and QFPs. This equipment allows CER to quickly and precisely assemble SMT PCBs.
