Engineering

engineering for electronic circuit boards

Altek’s team of electrical and process engineers are available to help customers succeed. We can work with you to develop your product specifications starting with space studies, outlines, or just a general concept.

Alteks’ onsite Engineering team provides electronic assembly design and support. Our team is what sets us apart from the competition. We provide PCB layout and design services, design for manufacturing and component engineering to ensure a smooth process for your product build. The engineering team works closely with our Document Control and Process Documentation teams to ensure that no detail is overlooked.

What makes us different

THE ENGINEERING TEAM

Our engineering team consists of five electronic engineers, two software engineers, mechanical engineer, test engineer, component engineer, three process engineers, four process documentation engineers and three manufacturing engineers. This team reviews your drawings, develops the process protocol for your build and consistently evaluates new equipment to maintain our leadership position in the Electronic Assembly Industry.

Support

DESIGN

We provide Design support for new products or product updates, taking your project from the design phase to prototypes through full-rate production. We can provide…

  • High speed, multi-layer digital PCB designs
  • PCB layer management for signal integrity and impedance control
  • High density SMT designs (BGA, uBGA, PCI, PCIE, CPCI, etc.)
  • Rigid-flex PCB designs
  • Low level analog PCB designs for metering
  • Drill, panel and cutout drawings
  • Routing for dense PCB designs

Product Integrity

TESTING

Test is an important part of the electronic manufacturing process because it verifies that the product is going to work as intended in the application. Testing provides the ultimate peace of mind. Our engineers are on hand to provide feedback and suggestions for test design, or we can quote the design of build turnkey custom fixtures. In order to mitigate the cost of test, Altek’s engineers develop fixtures that automate part or all of the process and reduce time and variation in the test process. If manual fixtures have already been developed, Altek can add a layer of automation to reduce time and cost. For example, as part of our continuous improvement process, and to meet a customer’s increase in demand, Altek developed a proprietary method of testing complex harness assemblies to reduce cost, increase throughput and improve quality.

Keeping you informed

COMPONENT CHALLENGES

In this ever-changing component market, keeping up with parts availability and compatibility can be challenging. Yes, we have a component engineer who works with the team to resolve any component issues to maintain high quality and reliability.

Getting it right

DESIGN FOR MANUFACTURING

Altek’s engineers are available to provide feedback on your design to confirm that it’s manufacturable and affordable. Simple things like tweaking the orientation of a component or keeping them away from the edge of the board can make a big difference in the cost of manufacturing. Making the best possible products for our customers is our priority. Please contact us for a “free” consultation as early in the design process as possible. “Contact an Engineer”

High Quality

CERTIFICATION

We have a Certified IPC Trainer on site to ensure our operators’ certifications [IPC A-610, IPC A-620 and IPC J-Standard] are maintained.

Our Process

MANUFACTURING YOUR PRODUCT

Altek utilizes a Digital Traveler system to ensure our operators have all the details needed to produce quality PCB assemblies consistently. It contains the instructions, materials, tooling, packaging, and even identifies the carton label. This keeps us efficient and running LEAN!
