Macrotron Systems Inc., a 33-year-old Silicon Valley-based firm working with OEMs, is an ISO 9001: 2008 compliant electronic manufacturing firm that specializes in PCB assembly, ultrasonic welding, testing, laser marking, pad printing and engraving.
Macrotron turns out new product introductions as well as high volume production while working in telecommunications, networking, test instrumentation, medical products, military, and government. To help with product design and development Macrotron works with a variety of 3D CAD systems, including SolidWorks 3D mechanical design, Pro-E / Mechanica for 3D mechanical design, and with AutoDesk Inventor for 3D mechanical design.
This process includes making technical feasibility assessments and recommendations, creating and presenting design review packages for management, providing technical assistance and training to engineers, developing a feasibility model, a prototype model, a pilot model and a production model. This work continues with providing complete product documentation packages as well as manuals. It includes providing renderings and functional animations of products for visual marketing aides.
Macrotron also offers laser marking on a wide range of materials, including on irregular surfaces that don’t lend themselves to pad-printing.
“From complicated medical and industrial products to promotional and highly decorative items, high speed YAG and CO2 laser systems enables Macrotron to provide precise quality marking and job flexibility,” Macrotron said on its website. This work includes indelible marks, no surface contact, sharp image, no pre- or post-treatment needed, precise placement, quick change via software, barcodes and unique serialization and no consumable materials.
“Using a concurrent engineering/business team approach, we can bring new products to production on schedule and within budget,” Macrotron said on its website. “Our engineers work with you to provide cost-effective and high-quality manufacturing solutions. From product conception to completion, we focus on providing a broad range of complete end-to-end strategies.”
Among its Printed Circuit Board assembly processes, Macrotron excels at paste and epoxy surface mount technology, encapsulation and conformal coating of PCB assemblies, lead-free assembly, intrusion reflow, press fit, wave/selection wave soldering, double/single-sided reflow processing, water soluable and no-clean processes, among others.
“Macrotron provides flexible manufacturing options that adapt to cost targets,” Macrotron said on its website.
“By managing the concept to production process, we enable our customers to concentrate on their core specialties.”
