OUR PROCESS

From 01005 to BGAs. You Name It, We’ve Seen It and We Can Handle It.

Setup and Verification

Your setup is verified with checks on checks. Our digitized production aids, two step component check, and first article inspection give us 100% confidence the right part is placed in the right location. Our lean approach and investment in quick change technology allow for ten minute, rolling change overs with virtually no down downtime between jobs.

Paste Printing

We guarantee accuracy by fine tuning every stencil. Our decades of experience allow us to place just enough solder for every component. Our printers use vision correction and 2D paste verification to ensure each mark is accurate and repeated.

Component Placement

We place roughly 4 to 5 million components every month (and counting). So, we get it. We can handle components as small as 01005 to large customized components. Every component is vision corrected before placement to ensure accuracy and our auto nozzle changing machines allow for ultimate flexibility in component pick and place. If data helps, we have less than 150 defects per 1,000,000 components placed (99.9% yield :)). Our high speed line utilizes dual gantry technology and can place upwards of 200k components an hour!

Automated Optical Inspection

We run 100% automated optical inspection on every board. Our in line and bench top machines give us the flexibility and capacity needed to handle all challenges. Our AOI engineers are hard at work optimizing programs after every single run. Our newest equipment offers 3D inspection ushering in a new age of detailed component analysis.

Frequently Asked Questions

Visit Help Center

Do you offer small run and prototype service?

Yes. Every big idea starts somewhere. We are ready for your prototype and we will finish by breaking down every possible way to optimize your product for cost and manufacturability. Low volume needs? Only selling a few products at a time? We do that too.

Do you offer quick turn service?

Yes, we can handle the prototyping and production of extremely challenging designs in as few as two days. Getting your product to market is as important to us as it is to you.

Can you handle dynamic changes to assemblies?

Yes. We understand today's world is rapidly changing. We handle immediate implementation of any engineering change order, even in mid-production!

Do you support partial or full consignment?

Absolutely. Many of our customers like to keep control of custom, particular, or even all the parts. We can handle partial to full consignment of any material. Our automated systems will even drive requirements so you don't have to.

Do you offer PCB design services?

Currently, VAS is operating as a contract manufacturing shop and does not offer design services. However, we can offer a few references of individuals or businesses we have met over the years to aid in your design needs.

What is the largest board size you can handle?

Bigger the better! We can handle boards up to 24" in length and 24" in width. We have not attempted anything larger but we are certainly ready to give it a shot!
