MPE assembles and tests complete products or assemblies, as required by its electronics customers. These products/assemblies may be delivered to our customers or in some cases direct to their customers.
Each product is different and requires the use of calibrated tooling and test solutions, bespoke test software and equipment, custom metalwork or plastics and bespoke packaging. The staff are trained in both the assembly and test of a particular product and the generic assembly skills needed to provide a product/assembly to the correct specification. Successful electronics manufacturing demands this level of flexibility and agility.
Working closely with our manufacturing customers, we construct/produce the necessary tooling to ensure each product is assembled in a cost-effective way.
We can work with companies from a wide range of industries to build sophisticated and complex products that provide vital functions.
Automated Optical Inspection (AOI)
High accuracy, stability and consistency in electronics manufacturing is essential for all MPE Electronics’ clients. The long-standing relationship we enjoy with clients is a consequence of our high standards of p...
Products or assemblies that are being used in harsh environments will usually require some form of environmental testing process to ensure reliability.
There are a large variety of potential conditions to emulate, ranging from...
Hand Soldering is used on components that cannot be wave soldered. We use a soldering iron and different size nibs to suit the components being soldered. It is an essential part of the craftsmanship of our team.
An example of when...
While surface mount technology is the most widely used PCB assembly process, through-hole assembly is prevalent in larger electronic components.
This could include PCB assembly for components such as transformers, connectors,...
MPE Electronics uses a wave soldering machine for conventional through-hole mounted components. In a matter of seconds, through-hole components can be soldered to the printed circuit board.
Wave soldering produces joints that are mechanically...
MPE Electronics uses a prototype PCB to detect flaws early on in the process and so can quickly pinpoint components that will need adjusting.
We run prototype batches to:
Prove the design for the customer
Ensure that the design is...
Printed Circuit Board (PCB) assembly begins in pre-manufacture, through the assembly process and inspection and testing and onto coating and potting.
Before any production begins on printed circuit board assembly, we...
Electronics potting is a process where the completed electronic assembly is filled with a solid or gelatinous compound.
Gelatinous compounds are used for high voltage assemblies and exclude gaseous phenomena such as corona discharge.
Surface Mount Assembly Through Surface Mount Technology (SMT)
Surface Mount Technology (SMT) assembly is the most used PCB assembly process. It is an automated PCB assembly process, in which components are pasted and soldered to circuit boards using...
