PCBs for Industrial Automation and Control – PCB Trace

The manufacturing industry has transformed from being primarily manually controlled to one where automation has largely taken over. Improvements in technology have gradually brought over industrial automation and control for all types of industries including the manufacturing sector.

Industrial controls is a broad classification of various types of control systems that relate to instruments, equipment, controls, systems, and networks that automate, control, and operate industrial processes. There are multitudes of control systems that can effectively handle machines and systems electronically, based on various factors that depend on the industry and the application.

Industrial Automation and Control  PCB

A common factor that binds all types of industrial automation and control systems is the  printed circuit board. It forms the heart of all industrial machines and activities. A printed circuit board allows a working assembly of electronic components and is essential for functional control.

Turnkey Services

Moreover, our customers can make use of our turnkey services to allow us to assemble their PCBs. We offer partial and full turnkey services.

In partial turnkey services, we manufacture the PCB, and accept the components given to us by our customers. We then purchase the rest of the components and assemble the board.

In full turnkey service, we manufacture the board as per the specifications provided by our customer, and proceed to procure all the components as specified by the customers’ BOM. We then proceed to assemble the components on the board.

With our state-of-the-art machinery and the latest manufacturing techniques, we offer high-quality, reliable boards to our customers.

Depending on our customer’s needs, we take up assembly of Through-Hole Type (THT) components or Surface Mount Type (SMT) components.

We use wave soldering machines for soldering THT components and reflow soldering machines for SMT components. We also use fully automated pick-and-place machines for mounting SMT components.

Standards for Industrial Grade PCBs

PCB Trace manufactures all PCBs conforming to International standards. Standards that we majorly follow are:

  • IPC-A-600: Acceptability Standard for Printed Circuit Boards
  • IPC-A-610: Acceptability Standard for Electronic Assemblies
  • IPC J-STD-001G:  Requirements for Soldered Electronic and Electrical Assemblies

We are a successful PCB manufacturer as we do more than simply focus on the specific details of the IPC standards. We embrace the standards in their entirety, so that we build our process on a solid foundation.

This allows us to catch even the smallest imperfections in manufacturing that others may overlook. We take into consideration processes such as PCBA handling for avoiding electrostatic discharges or ESD. We also take care of our work environment and personnel safety.

PCB Trace is a PCB manufacturer and assembler for Industrial automation and control systems that offers Class I, Class II, and Class III circuit boards.

Our boards conform to international environmental guidelines like RoHS and WEEE.

PCB Inspection and Testing

At PCB Trace, each printed circuit board we make undergoes very strict inspection. Some techniques we use for inspection and testing our PCBs are:

  • Automated Optical Inspection or AOI
  • X-Ray Inspection
  • First Article Inspection
  • Flying Probe Testing
  • Electrical Testing
