NCAB Group Lab

Our factories conduct rigourous quality and reliability tests prior to dispatch. However, The NCAB Group continues to take ownership of the qualification and release of products be this during volume supply or during our procurement and factory qualification processes.

NCAB’s Laboratory evaluates and supports a comprehensive first article inspection process and assures that the products we are receiving are as ordered. NCAB can also carry out root cause analysis of both assembled or bare boards should this be required, without the need or the additional time involved in sending boards back to our factories for analysis. This allows us to quickly grasp any issue and feedback to the factories quickly and accurately.

The NCAB Group make use of the following equipment:

  • ZEISS metallurgical microscope
  • ZEISS stereo microscope
  • Mantis stereo inspection microscope
  • Oxford Instruments CMI900 XRF material thickness and composition checker
  • Hakko FX”301B solder pot/bath
