Our electronic manufacturing capabilities are an extension of your manufacturing capabilities – giving you the competitive edge.
Long run or short, simple or complicated, military contract manufacturing or commercial and industrial contract manufacturing, PBE's team stands ready to serve as a vital extension of your manufacturing arm. Skilled operators and supervisors work together to provide assemblies at the highest workmanship levels in existence today. Depending on your assembly needs, the latest manufacturing techniques will be implemented to gain the highest quality at the most efficient cost.
A modern well-equipped facility serves as the complement to manpower. Our production success is evident, as we have consistently grown in sales, facility, manpower and equipment. Follow-on contracts with top defense companies illustrate further our on-going success in contract securement and retention.
Our delivery philosophy is basically very simple—we use all of our resources to meet the deliveries required by our customers. Our contract history has proven that delivery is a very important asset. We have continually delivered a quality product to our customers, often times overcoming what many would consider insurmountable. We pride ourselves in finding solutions and methods that allow us to meet your demands. Delivery and quality remain the top priority of PBE management.
PCB Assembly – Thru Hole and Small to Medium Volume Surface Mount
Pyott-Boone has the ability to build all types of printed circuit boards. We can build in volume or in small quantities. We can build simple to the most complex from commercial to the J-STD. Microprocessor Controlled Solderability Tester, "Z" wave solder machine, Vapor phase re-flow system, Pick and Place Surface Mount and related equipment, aqueous cleaning system with deionized water, conformal coating, and ESS screening are available. These are some of the tools and processes utilized in this type of manufacturing. Only the most skilled operators are used because of the varied criteria required in printed circuit board assembly.
Kanban production lines and cellular manufacturing are utilized where possible in an effort to provide continuous flow manufacturing.
In addition to assembly of the actual printed circuit board, other operations such as coating or encapsulating may be required.
Our manufacturing and quality engineers work with production supervisors as a team in writing the manufacturing instructions and building the necessary tooling and fixtures required to meet the tight tolerances called out on the drawings. Many reviews are accomplished before the operator has the opportunity to begin the assembly. Once begun, our engineers do in-process checks to assure all requirements are being met. A "first article" is performed by quality inspectors and engineers before being submitted to customer or government representatives.
Testing of cable assemblies can be accomplished through cable scans, hand bugging with multi-meters, or through utilization of one of our Omni Tester computerized continuity and hi-pot testers.
Wiring Harness Assembly
Pyott-Boone has the ability to build all types of branched wiring harnesses. We can build in volume or in small quantities. We can build simple to the most complex requiring shields, broom stitching, exact lacing, etc. Thermal strippers, sophisticated crimping tools, pull gauges, cable scans, Kingsley hot stamping machines, TMS computerized marking system, etc. are some of the tools utilized in this type of manufacturing. Only the most skilled operators are used because of the varied criteria required in wiring harness assembly.
In addition to layout of the actual harness, other operations such as coating or encapsulating may be required. Our knowledge and experience in this area is another asset for our company.
Pyott-Boone has the capability to produce electro-mechanical assemblies from bracket assemblies to panel assemblies to black boxes to I/O assemblies. The ability to interpret a drawing or specification to produce a satisfactory end item or subassembly is one of our greatest strengths. Experience can only make this happen. Every company has their interpretation of a drawing or how they want the unit to appear. It is our job to satisfy that customer to their expectations and only theirs.
Tools, processes, training and understanding are the keys to an electro-mechanical assembly. These keys will determine the quality and reliability of the assembly and thus the success of our customer. We strive to make our customers proud of our company.
Pyott Boone’s coating room is temperature and humidity controlled. The temperature controlled to 70o F + /- 2o F, and humidity to less than 50%. Chart recorders monitor both temperature and humidity on a weekly basis. Temperature and humidity being important, the process is stopped if they become out of tolerance. The coating room includes ovens for removing moisture from the assemblies after the cleaning process. Cleanliness is always checked before coating. Spray or dip processes are used. We also provide LFI vertical laminar air flow work stations to insure dust free results. Ultra-violet light or scope inspection is required to determine results. Coatings meeting MIL-I-46058C type UR are used and special formulated coating compounds are used where required. Calibrated scales are maintained to insure that mixing is done correctly. Freezing unused coating to -40oF insures the waste is kept to a minimum. All coatings are date coded and monitored by quality and removed when necessary. No expired date coded material is ever used.
