Axiom Manufacturing Services manufactures high-technology, internet-protocol-sensitive products for customers in medical, defence, industrial and aerospace markets and focuses on providing contract electronic manufacturing services (EMS) to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) who do not want to manufacture some or all of their products in house.

Axiom has invested in a fully automated, robotic, precision conformal coating system, providing highly accurate application of conformal coatings to printed circuit board assemblies by way of a 4 axis spray head system.

Our PCB assembly extends to offering hand insertion of components. Not all components are suitable to go through an automated process. This is when the added benefit of having fully trained operators with an eye for detail completes our PCB assembly services.

Axiom has extensive experience of multiple test platforms, which are supported by a test engineering team dedicated to continually evaluate product test flow and cycle time efficiency. Through this evaluation, test costs, first time yield is improved upon, downtime is reduced and test costs minimised.

A complete range of electronics manufacturing services are available from design support, prototyping, new product introduction, PCB assembly, sub assembly, product assembly, test, warehousing and logistics through to after market services which includes repair and rework.

Working together to solve the competitive pressures of reduced time to market, shorter product introduction cycles, through life costs and effective supply chain management. Axiom puts innovation and quality at the heart of everything that it does for its customers. When we decided that we wanted to work with the defence and aerospace industry we pulled out all of the stops to achieve our AS9100 accreditation.

Because of the rigorous quality standards already employed within the company we were able to secure the UKAS AS9100 in under a month compared to the average six months it normally takes manufacturers to reach this demanding standard.

Axiom are fully conversant with RoHS and WEEE legislation. If and when the need arises we can guide you through the process to assess the relative risks of changing or not changing the design.
