Medical PCB Assembly

The medical industry utilizes several advanced electronics equipment. This equipment is utilized through all phases from diagnosis to recovery. Owing to their dependability, the equipment is fitted with diverse components that assure stability as well as reliable performance. The printed circuit boards are one such component that serve as the power source of important equipment such as diagnostic devices from monitors to pacemakers. At Sierra Assembly, we provide an extensive range of medical PCB assembly services to our clients in the healthcare industry. We understand the criticality of assembly for the medical industry and stay at the top of changing trends in this segment. Our expert professionals and well-equipped facility combined with our adherence to industry standards help us build error-free and quality PCBs to be used in life-saving devices.

Medical PCB Assembly Capabilities of Sierra Assembly

As a PCB assembly service provider for several years, we understand client requirements and various challenges associated with PCB assembly for the medical industry. We believe the following capabilities that we have developed over the years have helped us navigate through these challenges and deliver high-quality medical PCB assembly solutions to our clients.

  • Types of PCBs: We regularly assemble rigid, rigid-flex, and flex PCBs in single-sided, double-sided, and multilayer configurations.
  • Types of PCB Assembly: We perform both – surface mount technology (SMT) and plated through-hole (PTH) assembly. Generally, we recommend our clients to choose surface mount over plated through-hole in many conditions owing to former’s following advantages:
    • SMT enables the design and manufacturing of thinner and smaller PCBs than PTH PCBs.
    • Surface mounting helps reduce the size of components, which overall helps reduce the weight of PCBs.
    • In SMT, the parts are surface mounted on bare boards, and this is performed using auto-calibrated SMT lines. This helps reduce the time taken for drilling as in the PTH boards.
    • This process helps reduce the use of lead in the medical PCB assembly, which is one of the key requirements in many medical applications.
    • The surface mount PCBs are designed to withstand rigorous movements and vibrations that may be encountered during the functioning of several medical equipment.
    • The mounting technique helps squeeze space on the PCB, thus, components can be easily placed on either side of the board.
    • Our SMT expertise enables us to assemble high-density PCBs with ease.
  • Special Process Capabilities: In addition to the above, we have developed the following process capabilities that enable us to retain our position as one of the leading medical PCB assembly providers in the US.
    • IPC compliant bonding work
    • Aluminum and ceramic substrates
    • IPC compliant conformal coating
    • PCBs with tin and flux-less soldering
    • Different types of laminates for high -speed operation
    • Automated temperature control
    • Automated optical inspection
