Our Experience Talks
ESDs professional and expert team was able to quickly assist with the removal and replacement of 2 resistors on 2000 PCBAs that had been incorrectly made in China. ESD went above and beyond expectations and was able to give a quick and stress free turn around.
A Customer had financial commitment to a product design due to development and testing costs – regulations advise that any changes would need to be re-tested. ESD commits to ensuring that component sources etc are recorded for future reference upon request, and advises customers should components become end-of life to enable purchase of additional stock coverage.
Sometimes last minute design changes mean that modifications are needed to your PCBA. At ESD we are often able to make bespoke modifications to existing PCBAs. For example components can be removed or replaced as specified. This can be more cost effective than returning to the original manufacturer and often incurring expensive shipping costs.
Reasons for Rework
- Poor solder joints due to fault assembly or thermal cycling
- Solder bridge – unwanted drops of solder that connects points that should be isolated from each other
- Part changes and upgrades
Our Procurement Services
ESD can procure all or some of your bill of materials; or work entirely with free-issued components if preferred. We will work with you to ensure your specification is met whilst doing our best to give you great value for money.
In general we purchase the exact component parts listed in your BOM from our Approved Suppliers list. Typically for standard passive components that we hold in stock we will ask for permission to use these generic parts.
We know that buying awkward components as well as solving obsolescence issues are common headaches in our industry. Our team work hard to ensure that you experience as little pain as possible when buying from ESD. We may also ask questions of your technical team to ensure that these parts meet your BOM requirements.
