  1. BEI Electronics is an expert at applying conformal coating to printed circuit board assemblies.

    Conformal coating is a protective chemical coating or polymer film that ‘conforms’ to the circuit board topology. The purpose of conformal coating is to protect PCBA’s from harsh environments that may contain moisture and or chemical contaminants. By being electrically insulating, it maintains longterm surface insulation resistance (SIR) levels and thus ensures the operational integrity of the assembly. It also provides a barrier to airborne contaminants thus preventing corrosion. The protective nature of conformal coatings also means that they not only protect, but also serve to enhance product reliability and thereby reduce the potential cost and damaging effects of early field failures. Conformal coatings are a breathable protective layers that will protect against the particular environment requirement but will also allow any moisture trapped in the circuit board to escape. The particular advantages of conformal coatings can be summarized as follows: *Insulating properties allow a reduction in PCB conductor spacing of over 80% *Can help eliminate the need for complex, sophisticated enclosures *Light weight *Completely protect the assembly against chemical and corrosive attack *Eliminate potential performance degradation due to environmental hazards *Minimize environmental stress on a PCB assembly To be effective, conformal coating should completely cover the assembly and provide good coverage of sharp edges (components and component leads) and other...
  2. Design For Electronics Manufacturing

    BEI has been assisting customers with Design For Manufacturing for over 20 years. By ensuring our customer’s printed circuit board assemblies follow the latest design guidelines and technologies we help reduce the risk of production problems down the road. As DFM is constantly evolving our engineers invest a great deal of time keeping up with the latest Printed Circuit Board Assembly trends and technologies in the Electronic Manufacturing Service industry. The design stage is very important in product design. If DFM guidelines are not followed, it will result loss of manufacturing time and a delay in time to market. Since the design phase is the least expensive place to address potential Printed Circuit Board Assembly issue our technical staff will work with you to ensure potential problems are caught upfront. Selecting a PCBA Contract Manufacturer is a critical decision. It is important to select an EMS provider who offers a complete solution from the initial printed circuit board NPI, to box build, to conformal coating. The BEI engineering team will take your complete documentation package consisting of the bill of material, assembly drawings, gerber files, schematics and CAD data and transform them into a final product built to your specifications....

  5. Reshoring

    BEI Electronics supports the Reshoring Initiative Mission. The mission of the Reshoring Initiative is to bring good, well-paying manufacturing jobs back to the United States by assisting companies to more accurately assess their total cost of offshoring, and shift collective thinking from offshoring is cheaper to local reduces the total cost of ownership. Why Reshore The massive U.S. trade deficit is a major cause of the decline of U.S. manufacturing over the past several decades, the high unemployment rate and debilitating budget deficit. Domestic suppliers have watched as large manufacturers have offshored work and well-paying jobs. Offshoring ultimately contributes to waste and instability. Reshoring is an efficient way to reduce imports, increase exports and regain manufacturing jobs in the United States. It’s also the fastest and most efficient way to strengthen the U.S. economy. For the nation, reshoring brings back desirable jobs that have been lost to decades of offshoring. Reshoring also helps manufacturers recover from offshoring’s poor quality, trade secret thefts, supply chain disruptions and lengthy delivery times — all while staying cost competitive.

  9. Selecting The Right PCB Assembly / EMS Provider

    Selecting a PCBA Contract Manufacturer is an important decision.  It is a marriage between two companies and it is essential that the relationship between the OEM and EMS provider is open and strong.  There are bound to be challenges but a strong partnership will always pull through.  It is critical that both parties have the same ultimate goal, providing a quality product that adds value for everyone involved. There are many factors involved in selecting an EMS provider and it is important to decide upfront what is important for your company.  OEM’s should not look at just price, they need to look at the total proposition.  How will the contract manufacturer respond if there is a difficult issue?  Is there a system in place to support quick turn prototypes?  Is the Printed Circuit Board Assembly house flexible?  Does the PCB Contract Manufacturer act as a true partner?  Do they provide turn-key solutions and have the correct internal technical and commercial expertise skills and systems? If an OEM shops strictly on price they could pay for it in the end.  The best CM’s have well established material pipelines and quality processes.  Low cost CM’s often drop their initial price but don’t...
