Emerald EMS Facilities for Assembly & Manufacturing
Let us help bring your product to market
At Emerald EMS, our experienced customer focus team will work closely with you to provide real-time assessment and adaptation to evolving technologies and regulatory landscapes. Our proven, collaborative working relationship with our customers ensures the focus remains on bringing your product to market quickly, within budget, with consistent superior quality.
Once we have determined the most cost-effective manufacturing solution and facility for your project, our customer focus team will closely monitor your manufacturing order throughout our facility. An assigned Project Manager will serve as your internal liaison, providing you with an inside view and ensuring that your requirements are being communicated correctly and timely.
Equipped with the latest manufacturing equipment available on the market, Emerald is capable of handling the most challenging PCB assemblies, with extensive experience serving high-reliability end-markets.
Within our lean manufacturing system, we set up each product for manufacturing in the most ideal process flow for that unique end-product. Whether that means PCB x-ray inspection for tight BGA placements, or selective soldering of components on a customized pallet, our customer focus team will create a specific manufacturing plan to meet the requirements of your unique product.
Whether your PCB assembly is a simple, 4-layer board with only surface mount assembly (SMT) components and Class 2 requirements; or a Class 3, complex 20-layer board with mixed-placement technology and specific thermal requirements, we’re the Electronics Manufacturing Service provider to assemble it for you.
In response to rapidly changing market conditions and product demands, Emerald offers a wide range of manufacturing capabilities, including the ability to produce components fitted to irregular three-dimension housings or to withstand intense vibrations using flex and rigid-flex solutions for printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs).
For Electronic Manufacturing
Emerald offers a wide range of assembly services, including turnkey and consignment services, tailored to our customers’ unique requirements, supply chain and distribution specifications.
Emerald’s Surface Mount Technology Department is arranged precisely to react quickly to changing client requirements while still delivering an exceptional quality product. Each line shares the same process flow, equipment and programming software giving us ultimate flexibility when scheduling your product’s assembly.
Emerald’s SMT Department is equipped with the latest manufacturing tools available including DEK Horizon’s Solder Paste Inspection tools, Juki’s high-speed placement machines, and Mirtec’s laser Automated Optical Inspections. In addition, to help maximize quality efficiencies Cogiscan’s TTC System is supported on all five of our lines.
Our high-speed Juki lines can place an average of 66,000 components per hour and support placements as small as 01005. Each pick and place machine is equipped with smart feeders embedded with RFID technology that allow our SMT Team to automatically marry each reel to the appropriate feeder. This technology not only ensures that all of the reels are loaded in the proper location, but also helps to minimize changeover time with a 10-minute, low-level warning system that alerts when a reel needs to be replaced.
Assembly Electronics & Components Include
Comprehensive Quality Control
For Electronic Manufacturing
Emerald EMS operates under ISO9001 quality standards, the most widely recognized quality management system used in industries of all sizes throughout the world. Registration to ISO9001:2015 Standards demonstrates that Emerald has implemented an effective quality management system with a strong customer focus.
Optical Inspection (AOI) Systems
To ensure correct placement of SMT components
Automated Optical Inspection (AOI)
Emerald’s expert quality control process ensures that every single SMT component is 100% inspected on an Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) verifying solder quality, part markings, pad placement, and solder joints in order to guarantee quality of all SMT placements. Each AOI shares software and offline programming capabilities, giving us ultimate flexibility to examine your product at every step of the manufacturing process.
Automated Functional Test Fixtures
In addition to supporting each of the different types of PCB testing requirements, including functional, in-circuit testing (ICT) and flying probe testing, Emerald also designs, develops and builds automated functional test fixtures with thorough procedural documentation.
Component-Level, Circuit Assembly & Fully Assembled Unit Testing
Emerald’s product test development services include component level testing, circuit assembly testing, fully assembled unit testing, or if needed, all three.
On-Board-Circuit Programming (for easy updates)
Emerald’s Test Department also supports on-board in-circuit programming, making it much easier to apply any updates to programming software during production. Our team offers the ability to test software updates in-house, providing immediate feedback on any changes to the functionality of circuit board assembly
