At Elmgrove Technologies, we provide PCBs and complex assemblies for customers in a broad range of industries. In this project, we helped a cryo-refrigeration industry customer with the manufacturing of five separate assemblies consisting of 1200 finished units. Known as the “245 Project,” it highlights our ability to deliver a diverse array of manufacturing services, both economically and with unmatched quality and consistency.
The PCBs consisted of mixed technology boards, which were composed of a RoHS-compliant FR4 material and assembled with SMT and TH technology with hand and automated processes. This was all provided in-house, including potting and encapsulation. Through our strategic partners, we sourced precision machining of custom heat sinks and stand-offs, as well as fully-assembled wiring harnesses.
While two of the assemblies were standalone units, others in the group were mounted together using connectors and PEMs, forming a single functional unit. One of the assemblies consisted of 4 smaller boards mounted to a custom machined aluminum block and wired to a cable connector. Each unit was assembled with stringent quality control procedures, using J-STD-001 assembly and IPC-A-610 Class II inspection standards.
Not only was our customer extremely pleased with the results, but we were able to perform a large volume of electromechanical services, custom production runs, and on-time delivery for a project of this complexity, all with a 120 day turnaround time.
