A wide range of Contract Electronics Manufacturing Services

Electronic contract manufacturing can be a complementary or substitute solution to in-house manufacturing operations. VECTOR BLUE HUB is a contract electronics manufacturing company that goes beyond a traditional “build to print” scope.

Our preferred customer is the one who wants more from electronics manufacturing services - from co-designing a product, through prototyping and industrialisation, supply-chain planning towards after-sales services such as reverse logistics, repair, electronic products sustaining, quality control, and lifecycle management.

We believe in integrating services and providing a one-stop-shop full range of electronic contract services required in a product's lifecycle. We offer comprehensive electronics contract manufacturing services regardless of what customers need to launch new products or upgrade older models to meet rising market expectations.

Our flexible production process management, flexible factory layout, and extensive product line retooling capabilities allow us to meet non-standard needs, making us the best among other contract electronics manufacturers.

Our electronic contract manufacturing possibilities - SMT Surface-mount technology and others

The surface mount (SMT) process is a cornerstone of every electronics manufacturing plant. At VECTOR BLUE HUB, we have made a conscious choice of equipment to suit our specific type of electronic production - we have configured our twin Juki RS SMT lines for manufacturing with maximum flexibility.

With this kind of technology, the mounting vastly reduces production costs and makes the most efficient use of PCB space.

The key to achieving carrier-grade quality is reasonable process control. These include capabilities that enable six sigma quality for our SMT assembly process:

  • 3D solder paste inspection
  • 0102 component size capability on pick-and-place machines
  • 10 zones, nitrogen-assist reflow oven (check with MK), with a rigorous pilot batch process for thermal profiling
  • 3D inline automatic optical inspection (AOI)
