Products

We provide a manufacturing service to our customers by making electronic products in low and medium volumes – our focus is on offering a complete electronics manufacturing service (EMS), including design, mechanical and electro-mechanical build.

 

Whether you’re an international supplier of electronic goods, an established OEM or a start-up company with a bright idea, the value of using Briton EMS is that we take electronics outsourcing right through the manufacturing process and deliver boxed products that are ready to sell or install without the need for further testing.

 

From your drawings, we can manufacture complex electronic products, including:

 

• Sub-assemblies with chassis wiring.
• Complete products to box build stage.
• PCB / SMT manufacture, testing and assembly.
• Product functional testing.
• Dispatch to anywhere in the world.
• And we’re also flexible about your changing needs.

 

Testing is a key part of our production process.  From the earliest stages, we build testing into the entire manufacturing process, so you can be confident that your products will be reliable and trouble free.

 

We serve the broadcast, counter terrorism, industrial, medical, security, agricultural, telecommunications and transport markets.

 

Specialities include instrumentation, control systems, digital encryptment and RF technology.

 

And as an outsource manufacturing partner, we’re producing life critical and high security electronic devices, sports industry and agricultural products and many other complex items.

Every year we invest new money in our people, production capacity, quality control and test facilities to add value to the products we manufacture on our customers’ behalf.

Complete product build

We offer excellence in EMS – electronics manufacturing services – by taking electronics outsourcing right through the manufacturing process.

From your drawings, we can manufacture complex electronic products in low or medium quantities.  These can be sub-assemblies, with chassis wiring, or complete products to box build stage, including PCB assembly, test and dispatch to anywhere in the world.

Testing is a key part of our production process.  From the earliest stages, we build testing into the entire manufacturing process, so you can be confident that your products will be reliable and trouble free.

Whatever the project – large, small, complex or relatively simple – every Briton EMS customer benefits from quality, reliability, flexibility, value for money, delivery on time and the confidence that thorough functional testing will ensure your product will work first time and every time… ‘straight out of the box’.

Design capabilities

Sometimes, you need help with the design of your product as well as its manufacture.

Here at Briton EMS, we’ve teamed up with a leading design company to provide a complete electronic and electro-mechanical design and manufacturing service.

This partnership enables us to offer a broad service of product design, prototyping, design for manufacture (DfM) and into production – all managed by one channel.

PCB assembly and SMT capabilities

As part of our advanced production facilities at Briton EMS, we’re able to manufacture complete PCB assemblies – both surface mount and through hole – in low and medium volumes.

Our multiple, fast change-over, fully automated SMT assembly lines include fully automated 3D optical inspection.

This ensures 100% success rate – whatever the design, specification and volume of your project, whether a prototype or in production and whether a simple or very complex board.

Other facilities include humidity and temperature controlled manufacturing and full convention re-flow ovens.

PCB assembly is only one part of any project – we have a total manufacturing facility, giving you a resource to develop, make and deliver complete products anywhere in the world.

Engineering and NPI

We’ll work closely with you to help accelerate your product into manufacture.

First, we’ll assess all documentation and drawings in detail, creating whatever drawings are missing as part of our design for manufacturing (DfM) procedure – the aim is to simplify procedures, optimise products for efficient assembly and testing and reduce lead times.  This almost always results in lower production costs.

Our prototype and pre-production manufacturing service at Briton EMS will give you the opportunity to test a fully working product, representative of a production item, before committing to final production.

Rapid prototype service

A really well made prototype is a great asset.  It will be representative of the production item, enabling you to test it with your customers in real world conditions to iron out any problems before production begins.

Investing in Briton EMS’s rapid prototype service gets you a fully working prototype quickly, saves you the trouble of obtaining all the parts and provides you with the opportunity to keep ahead of your competitors.

Our prototypes are created in our production environment to IPC 610 standards. All you have to do is provide us with the manufacturing information – then, you can leave us to take responsibility for producing your prototype.

Test Resources

Everything we make at Briton EMS is tested to ensure each product will be reliable and trouble free.  All of our equipment is calibrated to the highest standards, putting a premium on accuracy, reliability and repeatability – a significant aid in making us cost competitive.

Testing is deeply embedded in our culture – we’re fastidious about testing and we always build it into our design for manufacturing (DfM) procedure.  This helps to drive down costs by making products easier to test throughout the production cycle – and more reliable in the field.

After sub-assembly testing, we can carry out complete functional testing and burn-in to ensure your product is suitable for its working environment.  If required, we design and build customer-specific test equipment and formulate the appropriate test procedures.

Quality and approvals

At Briton EMS, we believe that quality is the responsibility of everyone who works for us – we have developed and refined a culture which permeates through all staff from management, administration, engineering and testing right through to our manufacturing operators.

In this way, we ensure that all deliveries conform to the specification and quality standards agreed at the outset.

As our ISO and other accreditations show, we are strong on production procedures, environmental management, quality control, product development and testing.

We are also an approved sub-contractor under the ATEX Directive and a certified sub-contractor for UL Approved Products.

This is where the engineering team at Briton EMS can provide you with advice to help accelerate your product into manufacture.

They will evaluate the product from a design for manufacturing (DfM) perspective – every facet production through testing to ensure that the final product is delivered on schedule, is reliable and gives you value for money.
