7 Electronic Design Problems that Add Hidden Expense

When developing a product or electronic assembly significant efforts are placed on functionality and on reducing time to market. Often Design for Manufacturing (DFM) takes a back seat without realizing the long-term consequences. Even if the manufacturing cost of a product is within target the manufacturability should be […]

Forward-Thinking Provides Solutions: Pcb Engineering & Contract Manufacturing

By |2021-03-05T20:20:18+01:00November 5th, 2015|Contract Manufacturing, Engineering|

In printed circuit board manufacturing, there is always the need to provide power to the circuit being assembled. The simple solution is to plug it into the wall socket, though wires can be cumbersome for the user/operator. In the case of implantable devices (or temporary implantable devices) wires are impractical. So as a result, most companies […]

Conformal Coating Vs. Potting

By |2019-06-17T08:22:42+02:00August 21st, 2015|Contract Manufacturing, Engineering|

Conformal coating is the norm for most electronic manufacturers. Conformal coating is a transparent layer of thin polymetric film, which “conforms” to the contour of the circuit board providing protection to the electronic circuit board.  This application is used to protect against moisture, chemicals, dust particles, and extreme temperatures.

Another form of coating is called potting. […]

Smaller, Smarter And Effective

Miniaturizing growth is the way we work at Valtronic. The size, weight and volume are all considered when developing and manufacturing active implants and other medical devices. When it comes to making implantable medical devices, size begins to get smaller and smarter, bringing challenges to advanced circuitry and encapsulation.

Both titanium and titanium alloys have been […]

In-House Microbial-Controlled Clean Rooms

By |2019-06-17T08:29:07+02:00March 26th, 2015|Contract Manufacturing, General|

A microbial-controlled clean room allows medical device manufacturers to handle the complete manufacturing process. By eliminating the need to ship finished devices to a third-party vendor for cleaning or packaging prior to sterilization, an in-house clean room helps to shorten the supply line, save time, and contain costs. Choosing a manufacturer without one increases the […]

The Usefulness Of Nothing (Vacuums)

By |2019-06-17T08:35:00+02:00December 29th, 2014|Contract Manufacturing|

You might think that nothing would be worthless, but creating nothing is actually very useful for PCBA manufacturing. At our contract manufacturing facility we use vacuums in a few different places to ensure that we are building a reliable product for the customer.

The attached video shows a pair of Peeps (Marshmallows) being placed into a […]
