Production of electronic components

Series of all sizes

Our Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS) cover everything you would expect from professional electronic production – from printed circuit board population, through testing of components, coating, sealing and assembly of electronic devices, to logistics.

Electronic production that meets the highest


Our work focuses on this principle. A consistently high production quality requires absolute pro cesses control, which in turn is the result of numerous

optimisations, modern machinery and, in particular, capable and motivated employees, who participate in ongoing training programmes to ensure that they always have the most up-to-date knowledge.

All this happens in accordance with the demanding principles of cGMP (Current Good Manufacturing

Practices), i.e. both the machines and the pro cesses have been qualified and validated according to

these specifications.

reducing the down times. Cameras in automated

optical inspection systems (AOI) monitor the solder paste printing, as well as the assembly and soldering process, thus ensuring efficient process control and tight control circuits.

High degree of product safety and traceability

The test concepts are customised and the individual tests are coordinated. This results in a high degree of product safety at optimal cost. Through different measures – from incoming goods to assembly –

traceability can be warranted for every single component. This is a crucial requirement in the field of medical engineering.

Efficient production processes

Our high-performance assembly lines are convincing due to their great flexibility in terms of setup and production and are able to equip even the smallest component sizes (e.g. 01005) in the most reliable manner.

For instance, outstanding SW tools facilitate re tooling

Electronic production

Processes and standards that meet the highest demands

Coordinated processes

All production processes – from SMD assembly to the final assembly of complete electronic devices

– are carried out on the same floor in an optimal

spatial layout.

+ testing with respect to production quality and function

+ packaging and shipping

Iftest – a capable production partner

Production takes place in a low dust environment with state-of-the-art, high-performance assembly lines.

Our lines have an annual assembly capacity of more than 150 million components.

A separate assembly line is available for the

production of prototypes. Iftest AG is the right partner for your needs, from prototype to high-volume production.

Compliance with the highest standards

Production is in compliance with the inter national quality standard “IPC-A-610, Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies”.

Iftest’s Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS)

cover everything you would expect from pro fessional electronic manufacture – from printed circuit board population, through testing of components, coating and sealing, assembly of electronic devices and

logistics, to documentation.

Upon request, we conduct comprehensive tracing

during the manufacture; this means that components, production documents, process parameters and test results can be traced without gaps.
