PW Circuits have three Hitachi drilling machines, two four drill head machines one with fully automated load / unload and a two drill head machine with the capability of drill the same or different drill programmes on each drill head. Each machine is fitted with a drill cassette of 200 drills with sizes from 0.100mm to 6.500mm. With automatic drill size detect, automatic broken drill detect and automatic drill hit counter all coupled with PW Circuits DNC (Distributed Numerical Control) system on all of its CNC machines at PW Circuits you know your printed circuit boards will be right first time and every time.

PW Circuits have four scoring machines; two manual Telmec scoring machines, one semi automatic Multiline scorer, and a Lohr & Herrmann LH 311-D automatic cnc scorer. For small & medium quantity fast turnaround printed circuit board the LH 311-D cnc scorer with it versatility and speed of set up has become a valuable part of PW Circuits equipment, a large bed size of 620 x 620mm, scoring speed of 80 ft/min and quick set up for different printed circuit board thickness from 0.8mm to 3.2mm all coupled with a x-axis resolution position of 0.01mm means both the depth and the position of your score lines will be right first time and every time.

Orbotech PC-1450e AOI (Automated Optical Inspection System) has become a valuable part of PW Circuits equipment with a wide range of inspectable products from inner layer signal, power/ground, mixed, buried vias and cross shielding. Outer layer drilled holes, SMT, signal, mixed and cross shielding as well as inspecting phototool master artworks. The PC-1450e along with Frontline Genesis 2000 CAM system means all inspection processes at reference comparisoned back to your original design files. The inspection process will detect any minimum line/space violations, missing or excess features, annular ring violations, opens, nicks, mouse bites, protrusions, shorts, pinholes, copper specks, dishdowns and any wrong size or position of features, all at a speed of up to 158 sides per hour allowing PW Circuits to manufacture any highly complex PCB design in the speed of today’s fast turn around market. At PW Circuits you know your printed circuit boards will be right first time and every time.

PW Circuits have four Mania speedy flying probe PCB test machines, each machine capable of testing the most complex printed circuit board designs from fine pitch surface pads to high density BGA’s with the speed that is needed in today’s fast turnaround environment. A 1,000 network point’s printed circuit board tested from setup to pass can be achieved in less than 2 minutes. At P.W. Circuits you know your printed circuit boards will be right first time and every time.
