PCB and assembly for aerospace

PCB electronics for aerospace
We understand that aerospace grade components must be suitable for use in extreme environments, which is why we have an ISO 7 cleanroom – a highly-controlled environment free of dust and other particles which we use to manufacture sensitive components. In addition to this, our advanced testing facility can test for RF, ionic contaminants, and much more. We also
offer Conformal/Certonal Coating, which ensures the durability of products in extreme environments, such as aerospace.

Testing taken to the next level

We take pride in everything we do, maintaining specifications through regular inspection and testing. Nemco offers highly advanced inspection and testing facilities on site, couple with our dedicated team, who are all cross-product trained and have a huge wealth of experience within the field of electronics test. Advanced in-house testing capabilities including RF, ionic contamination, and environmental stress screening ensure durability and performance of aerospace and defense electronics.

Conformal coating for aerospace and defence

Continuous improvement in our class-leading quality

Nemco continuously invest in the latest technologies and training to maintain our class-leading status and ensure we deliver to the highest standards first time, every time. As aerospace and defence require durable and reliable electronics for critical applications, Nemco maintain a dedicated cleanroom for assembly and testing as well as electrically-insulative coating facilities.
To achieve consistent quality of manufacture, we have on site our own vastly experienced IPC certified instructors who conducts training and competence assessments for our manufacturing staff to IPC-A-610, IPC-A-620 and where required IPC-A-600. This ensures quality is inherent throughout the business.

Critical application capabilities


Our Cleanroom measures 6Mx6M and operates under the BS EN ISO 14644-1:2015 cleanroom standard, it has a classification of ISO 7 which means that the air drawn into the room using HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filtration, provides a controlled environment for airborne particles and changes between 60 and 90 times per hour.

The cleanroom provides a production environment with controlled airborne contamination which is essential for a wide variety of electronic, optics and other critical manufacturing assemblies to ensure that sensitive products are not harmed during the manufacturing process.

Conformal coating

Conformal coatings are widely used in the electronics industry for environmental protection of PCBs from humidity, corrosive gases and solvents, dust, sand, and other contaminants.
At Nemco we have two purpose built, ventilated Conformal Coating rooms, one used for the application of Silicon material and the other for Acrylics. Each of these rooms contain their own spraying equipment machinery, tooling, and material storage.
