Procurement & kitting of electronic components
Outsourcing the procurement and kitting process allows customers to benefit from our experience and commercial leverage. We are able to procure the complete inventory ensuring the conformance of components and products and removing the risk of counterfeit or sub-standard parts.
We have access to a network of global suppliers and manufactures, from PCBs, board level components to metal enclosures. We manage the supplier performance and quality of the products on your behalf. Our system is compliant for traceability, detailing batch movements and locations back to the finished serial number.
We have extensive experience in bare printed circuit board engineering and manufacture, follow the link to find out more.
Free issue materials can be accepted and we stock a wide variety of common devices to reduce time and cost.
- MRP BOM Import process with MPN matching.
- Common branded R&C's in stock.
- Full batch trace on all components.
- Hard to find and obsolete component sourcing.
- Printed circuit board engineeing & manufacturing.
- RoHS and Non-RoHS device procurement.
- Scheduling & expediting.
- Quality & conformance checking.
- MSD handling, baking & shrink-wrapping. (IPC/JEDEC J-STD-033B)
- Tape & reeling systems in house.
Gemini Tec use powerful MRP/ERP systems to manage its materials and inventory, all items are barcoded with a unique carrier ID barcode, allowing us to track the quantity used and the exact location at our facility. We monitor and control any MSD devices before, during and after the build process, with baking and sealing machines widely available to all departments.
Material Handling & Loading:
When we procure your materials, our integrated system allows a comprehensive 'data set' to be passed into 'Shop-floor Loading' this data set allows us to quickly configure every component onto the correct available feeder - offering the quickest method of set-up time possible. The 'data set' allows us to ensure the correct test, verification and inspection of all components allowing us to optimise the fastest run time possible. When your product has been completed, we can assess the level of inventory on hand or set about automatically replenishing the stock for the next batch.
As our advanced MYcronic placement lines operate with intelligent AGILIS feeders we do not require the use of full reels to build products, which allows us to limit material usage and minimise excess costs.
To ensure we can import your BOM and optimise the process, please feel free to download our recommend BOM format. G-Tec_BOM_Format.pdf
Free Issue Materials:
In many cases, customers provide certain items on a free issue basis. All of these materials can be stocked and managed in ESD storage locations at Gemini Tec.
We are happy to accept 'Full Free Issue Kits' and provide you the benefits of our material handling system, however we need to request the materials are supplied in a suitable format and position. We strongly recommend early engagement with us to discuss the process to fit with your business requirements.
If you are considering supplying the 'blank PCBs' as a free issue item, please contact us. We can provide you the correct engineering support to ensure the quality of your product is not compromised.
