Getting a Quote
Our process starts with the customer sending through an RFQ pack containing Gerber files, Bill of Materials and PCB Spec alongside any additional info, such as a test specification. Then, our production engineering team studies the documentation for any discrepancies before our purchasing experts quote for the PCB and components and our production planner adds lead time and labour costs. With this information, our sales team issues the quote to the customer stating price, lead time and any component alternatives.
After receiving an order, the first step is to raise a sales order and complete our in-house checklist to ensure all provided documentation is correct. Our production engineering team then review all documentation to double check it is correct regarding details like issue numbers, part numbers and more. Once this is complete, our purchasing team begin procuring components. At Corintech, traceability is key and due to the systems we have in place, all components are traceable down to batch and board level. Once all components are at the production line, we send an acknowledged shipping date to the customer to meet the delivery time we quoted. Once assembled, all builds are inspected by our state-of-the-art 3D AOI Inspection system as well as being visually checked by our IPC-A-610 trained quality engineers. We are able to offer flexible supply options including Kanban supply to support your Lean Manufacturing system, and we have the capacity to hold stock of components and final assembly.
Our customer network is made up of a range of industries and business sizes that all value a high quality and reliable PCB assembly manufacturer. A significant portion of our client base include the aerospace and defence industries, for which our UK manufacturing facilities and AS9100 accreditation make us the ideal PCBA services partner, though of course these aspects of our services benefit all of our builds. We work with many other sectors including medical, industrial, oil and gas, energy, automotive and more. In fact, the flexibility of our printed circuit board assembly services (including both small and large batch and fast turnaround options) means we're able to cater to a vast range of customers.
Corintech provides small batch or high volume production as well as full functional testing, quality assurance and global component sourcing options. With manufacturing facilities in the UK and Far East, we offer competitive pricing across all our PCB manufacturing services. Our continual investment in the latest technology including solder paste printing, pick-and-place and selective-soldering, means we can offer fast turnaround services and maintain short lead-times.
Our Quality Control Measures
Quality has always been of paramount importance at Corintech. We deliver all products in accordance with our AS9100 accreditation as well as ISO9001 certificate. Our PCB assembly quality processes mean we are able to identify potential issues at the earliest opportunity through quality experts performing visual inspection and circuit testing as well as all builds passing through our state-of-the-art automated optical inspection machinery. All products at Corintech are manufactured to J-STD-001 workmanship standards and inspected in accordance with IPC-A-610 quality classifications.

The Risk of Counterfeit Components to Electronics Supply Chains in 2021
During times when the supply chain is under considerable strain, the risk of encountering counterfeit components rises. Counterfeit components are more common than you think, and pose a serious threat to electronics supply chains. Counterfeits often fail to meet the required performance demands of businesses, resulting in final products performing intermittently, not to spec, or not at all. Fake components can degrade system performance, cause intermittent performance spikes or delays, and limit the performance of other components in the system. This ultimately leads to product malfunction, which in the case of certain devices such as medical equipment, could be fatal.
