Capabilities

Helping customers realise new product concepts or evolve existing products to keep pace with customer’s requirements and technology changes.

Axis offers assistance at all stages when implementing new products. Whether in the design stage by the customer or on existing products being transferred into Axis that have previously been built elsewhere by an Axis competitor or in-house by the customer. Operating at a minimum of 5 days a week, we can extend to a 7 day operating schedule quickly with existing full time Axis staff, and also extend shift coverage to 24 hours when needed.

Axis also operates as a European hub for customers who require all re-work to be co-ordinated and completed in one central location.

To truly get an appreciation of the Axis manufacturing capabilities, we recommend you contact us to arrange a site visit; meanwhile here is a summary of our extensive capabilities all of which are managed from our secure UK facility:

New Product Introduction (NPI)

helping customers realise new product concepts or evolve existing products to keep pace with customer’s requirements and technology changes. This includes new products in design by the customer and existing products transferred into Axis that have previously been built elsewhere by an Axis competitor or in-house by the customer. Axis has its own 8 stage NPI process it used to manage all new projects and this gives customers the confidence the project is in safe hands.

Supply Chain and Materials Management

Axis has over 22 years in managing inbound supply chains, inspecting and storing material and then kitting material to ensure we are ‘ready for manufacture’ on time, every time.

Design for Manufacture (DFM)

our experienced Axis manufacturing engineers offer guidance to customers on board layout and design to improve manufacturing yield and reduce waste. This completed at NPI state but also throughout the life of programme in line with our Continuous Improvement (CI) philosophy.

Design for Test (DFT)

our specialist Test development team work closely with customers to develop comprehensive production test solutions.

Surface Mount Assembly

Axis is at the forefront of SMT technology having successfully manufactured with 01005 components, plus BGA technology at 0.25mm and 30um accuracy. Operating at a minimum of 5 days a week we can extend to 7 day operating quickly with existing full time Axis staff and also extend shift coverage to 24 hours when needed.

Conventional Through Hole Assembly

the experienced team at Axis have been completing conventional assembly work in house at Axis to IPC-A-610 and J-STD-001 Class 3 for over 20 years.

In Process Test Verification

trained Axis staff manage in process controls and verification to help guarantee 100% right first time yield at functional test.

Environmental Testing

Axis Electronics has the capability to complete both design assurance activity environmental testing and routine Production Environmental Test Screening.

Conformal Coating

Axis completes many conformal coating processes in house using specialist equipment with an experienced team we also use a local company for certain CC process, such as Paralyne.

System Integration

Axis are experts in the integration of a tested PCBA(s) into a customer’s unit and then testing and releasing the completed unit ready for deployment.

Special Processes

Axis completed and manages specialist customer requirements from its Bedford facility using other service providers if appropriate, such as device programming or BGA reballing, etc.

Ongoing Support

Axis provides on-site re-work for customers, covering both in warranty and out of warranty requirements. Axis also operates as a European hub for customers who require all re-work to be co-ordinated and completed in one central location.
