  • Top 5 reasons to order an 8-hour prototype PCB

    ABL Circuits manufacture prototype PCBs from receipt of data within 8 hours. We asked our customers why they use this service and here are the top 5 reasons: To reduce product development timescales We often manufacture a series of prototypes over a 3 or 4 week period and this can reduce time to market for a new product by several weeks. To meet a customer’s deadline OEM manufacturers face pressur...

  • Take advantage of the weak pound by choosing UK manufacturing

    The current dollar exchange rate means the UK manufacturing is being helped by the weak pound and it is time to reconsider UK manufactured PCB’s. If you are sourcing products PCB’s in the Far East, the continuing weakness of the British Pound against the US dollar means overseas supply costs have increased significantly over the last few months. Weak pound is at lowest level since 1985 Since the B...

  • Routing Machine cutting PCBs

      This is our CNC Routing Machine used for cutting out boards at the end of all the processes and we can leave them in a panel, like that with all sorts of complex shapes, sizes, angles, radiuses, gradients or we can fit them out with single circuits depending on what the customer prefers. They’re often left in the panel like that for ease of assembly. This one will rout… The post Routing Machine ...

  • Bare Board Tester

      Bare Board Tester This machine is our Bare Board Tester, it’s a four head flying probe machine that has two heads at the front and two heads at the back and electronically tests the circuit board to the original Gerber files, where, as opposed to testing one board compared to another because if you do that’s the golden board method. If you do it that way you could have… The post Bare Board Teste...

  • Tin stripping in PCB production

    The next part of the process is to strip off the tin that is now protecting our copper tracks. To do this we put it in the tin stripper which is a nitric acid based spray rinse machine conveyerised again which power washes off all the tin leaving the bare copper tracks which will be the finishing process of the bare board manufacture. The post Tin stripping in PCB production appeared first on ABL ...

  • PCB Etching process

    So here we can see the PCB panels coming out of the etcher in the PCB etching process and as you can see all the copper has been spray rinsed off leaving us our tracks with our tin on top, both sides, perfectly done.

  • Bespoke Circuit Boards Sparks Interest

    ABL Circuits were approached when a supplier of tuning equipment for cars and car modifications was looking for a new and reliable supplier for bespoke circuit boards. The main requirement was to create a performance enhancing booster amplifier for a V8 engine ignition system. ABL Circuits took on the task to reverse engineer the old design of the dual-timer power amplifier and rebuilt a superior ...

  • Removing the film on the PCB

    So after the tin plating the nextprocess is to remove the film. The blue film as you can see here which protects the copper underneath and gives you your image of the circuitry on the panel. But that’s only required for this stage because now we have the copper tracks that we want to keep eventually protected by the tin that we’ve just plated on, so now we need to… The post Removing the film on th...

  • PCB tin plating stage

    PCB tin plating stage So this is the next stage in the process of producing a budgetary board, it’s PCB tin plating, that’s plated on top of the copper purely to protect it further down the process. That’s all that does, so that’s not the tin that’s on the board at the end, that’s purely to protect the copper tracks that are underneath the tin when they get etched or… The post PCB tin plating stag...
