1. Planning

Comprehensive advice

At wtronic, we support you with our comprehensive expertise. Whether you already have a finished product or a prototype that is not quite ready for series production, we will be happy to advise you with the extensive knowledge our experts have gathered over many years.

During the initial consultation many areas are covered. We check whether your schematics can be smoothly transferred into series production. In this context, we focus on the interoperability with current manufacturing technology to ensure that your design can also be implemented in series production. Another aspect covered are component consultations, during which not only the availability of selected components is examined, but eventual cost-efficient alternatives are explored.

Experts analyze whether the components are placed appropriately, and check possible improvements to help smooth out the transition to series production.

Alternatively, finalized designs, finished products or plans to implement a redesigned product are welcome, too. Maximum flexibility, as we’ve already emphasized to maximum effect.

In addition, we can offer prototyping and further development of your product, even if we are not the original developers. With your data, we build prototypes and pave the way for the next phase. You will receive valuable feedback from our experts, which you can incorporate into further development. Based on your tweaked design, small series or samples can be produced, depending on the individual needs of your project. With these iteration processes we endeavor to refine your product and ensure it meets the highest standards of quality and performance. Simply put, it helps to define a diamond in the rough.

With wtronic, you have a reliable partner who not only has expertise in series production, but has experience in the areas of consulting, prototype construction and continuous further development as well – perfect conditions to take your visions from the drawing board all the way to a successful product.

Individual labelling for top performance
The first step in our production employs the latest laser technology. Here, each PCB receives a custom label. Regardless of which format you desire – be it Data Matrix, Accord, letters or numbers – our high-tech laser ensures the label is placed with high precision.

Quality solder paste
With the aid of a stencil, the solder paste is applied to the PCB pads. An even application can be guaranteed by using a screen printer with support grid and optical paste monitoring.

Melting point for stable bonding
In the reflow process, we fuse the solder paste by means of individually adjustable temperature zones, depending on the precise melting point for any particular soldering paste. This creates firm bonds between the PCB and the component while avoiding common defects, such as tombstoning.

Control for highest quality
One approach to quality control we offer is the Automated Optical Inspection (AOI). The position, polarity, codes/numbers and the soldering quality of components is checked to ensure no visible defects are present.

Precision to the last cut
With a rotating knife we remove the individual PCBs from the production panel. This prevents damaging the circuit board or any of the components.

Quality made to measure
Finally, the individual function test takes place, during which we determine and document specific values. The test is tailor-made to ensure the PCB operates within the performance parameters set by you. With every PCB assembled, our production strives for perfection.
