Plus in 60 Seconds

Are you curious on how we make our Plus Service boards? This 60 seconds of video provides a
glimpse of the work involved. Watch the Basic Service video to see the front end work such as
drilling and plating. 

Plus Service carries forward from the Basic Service's ending. Masking is applied after all plating
processes are completed. The front end processes are nearly identical. Before masking can be
applied, the SnPb is stripped off of the traces to expose the Bare Copper. Once masking is
complete, we add SnPb back to the solder points via Hot Air Solder Leveling or "HASL".

To meet tight delivery schedules, we must "cutoff" the daily stream of incoming data. Only designs that were fully examined and tooled by our CAM Team will qualify for the current day's process. CAM inspection and tooling is a very detail oriented process and not something to be hurried at the last minute. Please have your data in at least 30 minutes before cutoff to allow adequate time for DRC, layout inspection, and tooling preparation. 

  • RUSH orders must be inspected and approved by our CAM team before 9:00 AM MT. Contact (403) 250-3406 to coordinate your order
  • Standard turn orders must be inspected and approved by the Setup Department before 11:00 AM MT
