Emerald EMS was established from some of the world’s leading electronics manufacturers of printed circuit board assemblies for the Aerospace and Defense industry and remains committed to nurturing and expanding on our decades-long record of meeting precise manufacturing specifications, premier quality standards and trusted customer relationships in the sector.
Emerald EMS Facilities for Aerospace & Defense
When the stakes for product quality and reliable performance could not be higher, you can count on the cumulative decades of engineering experience and proven record of results that Emerald brings to every stage of your project, from product design assistance and New Product Introduction (NPI) to assembly, testing and distribution.
Electronics Manufacturing Services
Emerald has extensive experience at all stages in the engineering, production and testing of numerous products and components used in military and aerospace technology.
At Emerald, your product or program will be assigned to a dedicated Customer Success Team, consisting of experienced systems engineers and supply chain and logistics experts, all working collaboratively with you to develop a plan to bring your product to market, on-time and within budget, and ensuring its implementation, from concept to delivery.
Defense and aerospace products must perform without fail in the most extreme of environmental conditions, and Emerald’s seasoned engineering and skilled manufacturing teams have the expertise to ensure your product is in conformance with the most rigid quality control standards.
In response to customer requirements for high-reliability assurance, our AS 9100-certified production facilities are equipped with the most advanced coating and sealing technologies, including conformal coating, epoxy, or potting solutions.
Conformal coating protects printed circuit board assemblies from harsh environmental conditions, such as dust, moisture, exposure to chemicals and extreme temperatures.
Depending on the type of material, thickness and coverage required, conformal coating may be applied by machine or hand and provides the following levels of protection to meet customer requirements:
- HumiSeal UV40
- HumiSeal 1B73
- HumiSeal 1A33
- HumiSeal 1B31
For high-reliability products that require more protection than afforded by conformal or epoxy coating, utilizing an encapsulated electronics-grade potting material will give your electronics assembly extreme protection against the harshest of environments.
Emerald’s potting methodology is designed to ensure a high level of protection against tampering and reverse-engineering.
Since potted assemblies cannot be serviced or repaired, both pre- and post-testing for your potted assembly is essential.
Potting molds can be supplied by the customer or designed in-house by one of our experienced systems engineers based on customer specifications.
In most cases, the potting Emerald performs uses a standard material Epic Resins S-7302 medium durometer urethane. Emerald also has experience utilizing epoxy, urethane and other gel-type encapsulants.
In order to meet quality and performance standards, many products and systems produced for the defense and aerospace industry require extensive testing and quality control solutions.
Since many of these military and defense products require robust PCB testing solutions, we also offer environmental testing in-house, including Shock & Vibe Testing, Thermal Cycling and Burn-In testing.
Emerald’s Test Engineering Team will design and build any necessary custom tooling or fixtures required to fully test your defense and aerospace PCB assembly or system.
At Emerald EMS, nothing is more important than maintaining the faith and confidence of our customers. At Emerald, we understand the importance of ensuring product reliability and performance under the most extreme conditions.
To ensure our ability to provide our aerospace-defense industry customers with the most stringent quality guarantees, Emerald has obtained all appropriate certifications that are necessary for circuit board assembly manufacturing in this sector.
Emerald customers have access to three AS9100C-certified manufacturing facilities in the United States, conveniently sited to offer our customers geographic flexibility and alternatives, as well as to our Shenzhen, China, facilities.
