Eurocircuits doesn’t take a Summer break.

PCB Services | eC Solutions
Eurocircuits doesn’t take a summer break since your project deadlines don’t either
Eurocircuits doesn’t take a summer break since your project deadlines don’t either

Our full range of PCB manufacturing services is available throughout the year. We have no summer shutdown; we only close the plant for Christmas and New Year.

As a board designer you need to be confident that your PCB supplier can offer fast and reliable deliveries whenever you need them. To achieve this needs experienced and specialist capacity planning. With no summer shut-down we must have spare capacity to accommodate machine downtime for planned maintenance, as well as to meet demand growth and demand spikes. We have generated this extra capacity through ongoing investments in new plant and equipment. Capacity planning has allowed us to handle demand growth, as well as routine maintenance, without weakening our on-time delivery rate.

And if something goes wrong? Where possible we have duplicated processes and machinery, and we have two plants in Europe geared specifically to PCB prototype production, both using the same business model we have refined over the past 26 years.

Our production staff are committed to providing a continuous service with reliable deliveries all year round. Our support engineers are equally committed to sharing our knowledge of PCB fabrication with the design community. They make sure that there are engineers on hand every day to answer your chat requests.

To see one of our factories in action, go to the video of the Eger, Hungary factory or in more detail How to make a PCB, also filmed in Eger. See another reason why, when you place your order, you can be confident that you will get the right board on the right day.

Eurocircuits Tips & Tricks – How to order the most cost effective PCB
Eurocircuits Tips & Tricks – How to order the most cost effective PCB

What options are available to help reduce the cost of your Prototype PCB?

When uploading your PCB data to your Eurocircuits account you may have noticed on occasion some small Icons next to certain options:

  • Single coin, indicating this option has additional costs – Amending your design to fall into a classification which no longer has additional costs.
  • Stack of coins, this indicates that the option selected no longer falls into our pooling service and the cost will raise accordingly to reflect unique manufacture – here possible review the remarks and see if it is possible to amend the design to no longer fall outside of our pooling option, if this is not possible then use to the “customise matrix” to identify the most cost effective quantity.

In addition to the stack of coins your will also see a remark directing you to where the non-pooling option is:

We have worked to providing Design Rules which can be imported into 3 of the most popular CAD design packages. They will push your design to meet the cost effect design classification automatically, you can find these Design Rules here:

For “true” prototyping we also have the “NAKED Proto” service, by offering a high quality PCB which does not include soldermask or silk screen marking can reduce the price of you order by up to 45%.

Pooling customer orders and sharing the cost of production, the heart of our business and successfully offering affordable Prototype PCBs for 25 years.

Eurocircuits Tips & Tricks – Cost effective solder paste printing

Eurocircuits Tips & Tricks – Cost effective solder paste printing

Electronics is a very dynamic market, demanding smaller and smaller circuits, requiring very small tracks and gaps in the PCB layout. This also influences the components which can be used.

As Through Hole (THT) components are rarely available for these requirements, more designs are driven to SMD (surface mount devices). This causes additional costs to your small prototype series, namely no longer can you simply take a soldering Iron and solder wire to manufacture your boards. It is now essential to use solder paste and a solder paste stencil and printing device.

Solder paste stencils can be expensive, requiring expensive machines to ensure perfect alignment for the stencil to the board.

Eurocircuits have worked with designers to understand what is required and how we can help to offer the right service for printing your boards with solder paste.

First we can offer solder paste stencils, you can order with a click of a button.

We also looked at our customers who need an alignment solution and for this we came up with the eC-registration:

Finally we thought long and hard and wanted to offer an affordable solution to align the stencil and boards accurately inside your lab environment. For this we can up with 2 solutions:

  • Stencil fix, see how this works here
  • Stencil-mate, see how this can help you here

Eurocircuits Tips & Tricks – Problem identification and Auto-Repair

We at Eurocircuits want to make your life as designers easier in any small way we can. You already have the stress and pressure of creating a practical and functional electronic design without the added pressure of knowing all the production restrictions and overcoming them before being able to have the peace of mind that you design can be made.

With our PCB Checker you can see not only the exact location of problem but also the measured values to allow you to either correct the technology specification or your design.

But did you know, we have continued to evolve our unique PCB Visualizer tool to automatically fix these problems for you too, saving you precious hours development time and stress.

Watch the 2 minute video below or read our short BLOG to see how you can save time on money getting your design produced.

Eurocircuits Tips & Tricks – Marking Editor

Eurocircuits tips & tricks – Marking Editor

Did you know that you could add your company logo to your PCB design, add text, Date code, UL marking or even determine where to locate your order number? Not only this but place them either in the copper layer or the silk legend layer?

But why would you do this? The answer is simple and opens a new world of possibilities and tools for design engineers. You can make your design more personalised by adding your company logo, what about adding your name to the board or easily marking it to identify a prototype and not production board? Add a QR code to the board to make it universally identifiable, Or how about simply specifying where your order number should be placed to ensure it is where you want and need it?

All of this has been made possible and easy to do through your PCB Visualizer, in just 3 minutes we can show you in the video below how to open a new world of PCB identification.

We have also create a short blog with more details to help you make the most of your Marking editor

Eurocircuits Tips & Tricks – Pre-production approval


Eurocircuits product news – Pre-Production Approval

Sometimes your data files may contain features that our automated PCB Visualizer process cannot recognize. Or you may be worried that your first layout is not quite right. Whatever your concern, we can give you the reassurance you need. You can do this by Setting up an approval step for the production-ready data for your board just before it goes into physical manufacture. As soon as our engineers have completed their checks, we will send you an email to advise you that the production files are ready and waiting for your approval. Check them using our PCB Visualizer tools, and continue the order, confident that you will get the boards you intended

This is our Pre-production approval process.

But did you know, during the front end data processing stage, our highly skilled engineers verify all your data against your order details and where there is a conflict will, if possible, make a correction and send you a Pre-production approval to ensure that what they propose is correct to your needs. You can see how this is done in our short 2 minute video below.
