Two layer SMT Assembly, including:

  • Parts placement - our machinery ensure high speed and high accuracy
  • Reflow solder for lead and lead-free profiles
  • Automatic inspection of solder joints
  • Automatic selective solder
  • Solder paste stencil print

Multiple testing options, including:

  • A pre-assembly functional test


Final Assembly

PowerShield Solutions provide experts in small embedded product manufacture. We harness innovative technology for completing box build, quality assurance processes, bare board tests, functional tests and various combinations. We collaborate with partners and client product engineers to engineer customised test systems, and we have a variety of options for enclosure final assembly including clip fit hand assembly, and ultrasonic welding for waterproof or high reliability applications. We also have highly productive semi-automatic assembly workstations using fasteners.

We can assist in design for manufacture using quality assurance steps throughout the process.


Our services include:

  • Automated assembly where relevant to design
  • Semi-automatic assembly using customised solutions
  • Manual assembly
  • Quality checking to high standards of accuracy


Testing & Packing

Quality assurance is key in any electronic product. We have deep expertise in embedded system test and report, for both pin bed Printed Circuit test and for functional test.

Test design is also important, and we work very closely with customers to get it exactly right. Typically we integrate testing with data collection via the use of barcodes which are scanned at end of SM manufacture and during any testing operation. This enables both parts traceability to any level the customer requires and provides proof of test records for later evaluation should that be required.

Finally, at the end of assembly and test we can incorporate packaging steps to ensure least handled product but maximum certainty that all production processes have been completed correctly to specification –see logistics below for more details.


Purchasing & Logistics Support

Because most electronic assemblies contain several hundred components, we understand the importance of materials sourcing and managing the supply chain. These are some of the key capabilities of PowerShield Solutions.

The supply chain utilises state-of-the-art Lean Manufacturing processes from end-to-end. From forecasting linking through our component supply partners, to our manufacturing here in New Zealand, to end customers, we manage the process from start to finish.

Our approach to our customers is that of a partnership, meaning that when you partner with PowerShield solutions, you'll have access to our network of supply chain partners. This helps to reduce inventory, lower costs, improve responsiveness and deliver high quality products on time, every time.
