In many instances, assembly of the PCB is only part of the process. For many of our customers we also amalgamate the PCB assembly into higher levels of product. This may include wiring, cabling and mechanical assembly, the service for any and all of which we can and do provide. Take me there >

A Total Manufacturing Solution

Cost of ownership has become an important question in the minds of many of our customers. In an effort to reduce the overall cost of their products many of the companies that we deal with have come to question the rationale of running an internal manufacturing facility.

The equipment used in many of the leading edge manufacturing processes requires levels of expertise and support that, for customers with small to medium sized order books, becomes a severe drain on financial resources and a major driver of product costing.

To this end Printed Systems provides a Total Manufacturing Solution for many of our customers.

Given a prototype design we can provide a service that takes the product through pcb layout, initial manufacture and test, to preproduction trials and finally full production volumes.

This service includes materials management and design for manufacturing, as well as all aspects of product logistics from initial product shipment to refurbishment and spares provision.

Our customers know that once Printed Systems Limited takes ownership of their manufacturing process, they can rest easy in the knowledge that we will keep their end users totally satisfied.
