Contract Electronic Manufacturing Services from Axiom
Pursuing manufacturing excellence is second nature to Axiom, we are able to react quickly to changing marketplace conditions, work efficiently and effectively to reach targets whilst managing costs and quality.
Our passion for what we do, our commitment to innovation in whatever we do and continual improvement means that we stay committed to our objective of being the partner of choice. Axiom achieves the highest levels of excellence in each and every operation that it undertakes, providing our customers with a world class manufacturing solution.
Through continuous investment in high technology equipment and the development of our capabilities means that Axiom can offer its customers a broad range of competencies across the whole spectrum of contract electronics manufacturing. Our manufacturing services fall into the following categories:-
PCB ASSEMBLY - AXIAL AND RADIAL PTH
In addition to offering PCB assembly on our SMT lines, Axiom offers the flexibility of manufacturing legacy and mixed technology products by utilising extensive automated component insertion equipment. We are able to retain our older plant because of the space that we have at our factory, enabling us to offer customers added flexibility in the services offered.
Axial insertion consists of dual head/anvil VCD systems controlled by board error correction (BEC). Axiom’s radial equipment employs a conventional guide-pin system and clinch detection to enable 2.5mm, 5mm and selectable centre pin for transistor insertion.
Both axial and radial component insertion is programmed by TIMMS technology ensuring the highest levels of efficiency and build standard control are achieved.
Axiom specialises in low to medium volume PCB assembly within the aerospace, defence, medical and industrial markets. All of our PCB assembly is undertaken in house by a team of dedicated and highly trained employees (IPC) who have been with the company for a long time. Our extensive quality standards means that you can expect consistent high quality PCB assembly and attention to detail.
Maximum efficiency is achieved by TIMMS programming in addition to flexible placement platforms, capable of achieving in excess of 34,000 68000 chips per hour (CPH). The modular feeder cart system enables machine changeover time to be minimised to less than 10 minutes.
The SMT placement capabilities include:
BGA , Micro BGA, CCGA, CSP’s, Double and single side reflow, 0402/0201/01005 01005/0201/01005, Flip Chip, MCMs, MEMs and Complex Connectors (150mm x 0.3mm pitch)
Test is optional for PCB assembly, and is driven by customer requirement. We do however always recommend that customers implement a test strategy with us.
ASSEMBLY HAND INSERTION
Complementing the hand insert process is a dedicated pre-assembly, component preparation area allowing sub-assembly of components, component forming and leg cutting, delivering high post bath efficiencies to be achieved to IPC assembly specifications.
Conformal coatings can protect the operational integrity of the printed circuit board assembly, especially where high reliability or exposure to harsh operating environments typical of Aerospace, Defence, Medical, Industrial and Automotive applications are to be experienced.
The PVA 2000 eliminates component masking and circuit board handling enabling application cycle times and quality to be significantly improved upon in comparison to conventional application methods. This automated process allows the safe selection and extraction of product-specific chemicals.
By deploying customer specific manufacturing cells our highly skilled workforce work to the exact build specifications as set out by our customers. Sophisticated manufacturing systems are supported by a fully equipped tool-room for rapid and cost-effective provision of jigs and fixtures to give optimum cost and high efficiency.
By adopting an integrated business unit approach, Axiom provides:-
From medical devices to industrial controls through to military and defence equipment, Axiom has developed extensive experience in manufacturing complex and mission critical, life support systems:
Our system integration engineers have a broad range of skills including both software and hardware, including extensive general problem solving skills. Our teams work together with our customers to define the most suitable and comprehensive integration strategy and processes.
