Speed & Precision
At OSDA we believe there are reason we are able to fulfill the most demanding deadlines for product delivery and support. We feel this ability results from a culmination of things. First, we understand that it is a reality that unforeseen issues will arise during manufacturing prototypes and/or changes to products. We also realize that when we commit to a deadline, we simply must have the skills, knowledge and flexibility to get the job done.
We utilize direct and effective communication with the customer if a problem occurs and can come up with solutions, allowing us to complete the product, while still maintaining the delivery the customer requires. OSDA provides 30 years of experience in helping customers overcome unforeseen issues and for a mutually successful conclusion to shipping working product on time!
Let Us Help You With Your Challenging Quick Turns!
Below are some examples that we may encounter during the manufacturing process and how we have resolved the problems.
1.) Our customer needed multiple transistors to have the body of the component elevated exactly 0.250 inches off the PCB. This component had a tolerance of .005 inches.
- Our engineering team immediately built a custom fixture, in house, which allowed our insertion department to consistently meet the tight specifications, we learned about at the last minute.
- Due to our ability to build our own fixtures on the fly, we were able to put these PCBs through the automated process allowing us to meet our quick-turn delivery time without sacrificing our excellent quality.
2.) Constant change is a byword of inventing some of the most innovating products in all the industries we service. Addressing those changes without missing a beat is what OSDA is all about. As products get closer to being manufactured, small adjustments to the circuit, using with cap and resistor changes frequently occur.
- As we processing a new product, it was discovered that a number of resistors needed to be adjusted to improve performance. OSDA was notified of this in the morning of producing the product. Using OSDA’s stocked supply of resistors, we were able to find a substitute, make changes to the BOM and the process sheets. Adjusted our set up and pick and place machines and still ship the product that afternoon!
3.) The component manufacturer had recommended specific instructions to increase the solder mask coverage for their LGA component. When OSDA received the PCB, an alternate pad configuration was used. This caused a number of opens, during the manufacturing process.
- Due to quickly seeing the solder mask problem, OSDA decided to build the assembly without installing the LGA, prior to the reflow operation. An OSDA rework specialist added solder to the surface lands building them up to insure they exceeded the solder mask height. The component was then installed by our standard SMT equipment and the board was then sent through the reflow oven. No opens were found after this process and by using its quick observation of the problem, its unique solution to the problem, OSDA was able to meet its committed delivery and assure the quality of the product met all industries standards.
