custom printed circuit boardLike anything else in product design and manufacturing, there are pros and cons associated with creating custom printed circuit board design. EMC Technologies provides a wide range of services to our customers, including custom printed circuit board (PCB) design. Our team of highly trained and experienced engineers can help you to create the designs you need to reduce costs, streamline production, and ensure greater quality control. When designing an electrical or electronic system, the question might come up as to whether it would be more beneficial to engage in custom PCB design and manufacturing or to make do with something more standard. There are many benefits associated with choosing to design a custom PCB, particularly to accommodate industry demands and establish test fixture solutions for manufacturing.

Simple and Complex PCB Design and Manufacturing

Our printed circuit board design engineers can work with each client to accommodate their requirements for PCB development. We can offer simple, double-sided designs, as well as more complex, multi-layer options. The PCB designs that we create can be explicitly accomplished according to the customer’s requirements or developed entirely in-house by our team. We strive to be as flexible as possible, so we can always be ready to meet or exceed client expectations for every project that we take on at EMC Technologies. The designs that we create can be delivered to the customer, either in PADS or Allegro format.

We utilize our ability to design and manufacture custom printed circuit boards as an integral component of the interface test adapter. The benefits associated with this added service include having the ability to provide greater signal integrity and repeatedly to help significantly reduce debugging time. By streamlining this process, we are able to be more efficient and effective in the creation of faster, less expensive exact duplicates of interface test adapters. This allows us also to offer better organization of relays, power and ground busses, and signal conditioning components. When PCB design and manufacturing are provided as part of a connector saver adapter card, our services can also help to ensure ease of maintenance for high-volume testing.

Professional Machining and Prototyping

Our clients also rely on our team of engineers and technicians to provide full in-house machining and metal fabricating services. This service, coupled with our PCB design and manufacturing opportunities, helps us to ensure greater quality control and offer more complete support to our clients. Our machine shop in Southeastern Massachusetts includes a variety of state-of-the-art CNC milling centers, knee-mills, lathes, drilling equipment, and sheet metal brakes. Having all of this equipment in-house allows us to fabricate nearly any machined part for our customers, from simple aluminum pieces to extraordinarily complicated and tight-tolerance parts. Our machine shop can also be used to perform prototyping and run high-volume parts in-house to help customers save time and money.

Our contract manufacturing services include printed circuit board design, fabrication, assembly, and testing, as well as complete electro-mechanical assembly. We can also deliver superior custom wiring solutions for all your needs, taking on simple and complex fixture projects. Our team of experienced and highly skilled technicians have the equipment and training necessary to fabricate nearly any type of cable. Our technicians are certified bi-annually to the J-STD-001 standard. Our cables are Mil-standard or best commercial practices, and we can offer automated cutting and crimping for quality, consistency, and repeatability. Continuity and Hipot testing, as well as other test options are available, and our team is experienced with the most popular connections and contacts.
