Advanced Assembly was founded in 2004 by engineers to help other engineers get their prototype designs built fast and right.
We’ve grown tremendously since then, handling many thousands of production and prototype PCB assembly orders each year. But helping engineers in the development of new products and upgrades to existing products remains close to our hearts. From coast to coast, we work with engineers designing everything from life-changing medical devices to new military technology to one-of-a-kind experiments for launch into space.
To help make the development of products easier, faster and cheaper, we offer several specialized services.
Our proprietary DFA (Design for Assembly) Verification software creates a virtual prototype of customer designs. This allows our Engineering Dept. to check for errors, such as wrong part rotation or incorrect pad size, that can stall or even completely derail an assembly order. We catch these mistakes upfront and work with customers to correct them before a single component is placed on a board.
Once everything looks good on a design, customers often want to test a few finished units to double check functionality before a whole order is built. No problem. We offer a free First Article Service. Let’s say you want 10 PCB prototype units assembled, but want to check two first. We’ll get everything ready to build the 10 units, but only assemble and ship two of them while the remaining eight are on hold awaiting your approval to proceed. If you have any design adjustments, we will work with you to make them happen for the final run.
Designing optimized circuit boards for products is challenging and requires an immense attention to detail. Most of our engineer customers want to focus on design tasks and not the logistical mess of ordering, stocking and shipping all the individual components for their design. That’s why we offer full Turn-Key Services for prototype as well as production orders. Let our dedicated sourcing and procurement staff find your components, get them on order and inventory them to ensure delivery accuracy. With our Turn-Key service, we handle the headaches and risks for you.
Advanced Assembly will retain files for up to 7 years. This includes job files and travelers for the job. All other correspondence will not be retained for the 7-year time period.
We pride ourselves on helping engineers across the country develop the products of the future. We believe our job is to help accelerate the next great ideas.
