Leaded and Lead-Free (RoHS) Assembly

assemblycap

Passed into UK law in January 2013, the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive bans products that contain a high level of hazardous materials from entering the EU market.

Although RoHS is often (mistakenly) used to determine whether or not a product has lead in it, the legislation also restricts the use of other substances as well, such as Mercury (Hg), Cadmium (Cd) and Hexavalent chromium.

Our printed circuit board services – including both conventional and surface mount assemblies – can be done either RoHS or non-RoHS compliant.

Move to a lead-free future

If your existing production line uses lead and you want to move towards a lead-free assembly service in the future, we can help.

We will work alongside you to make all the necessary changes needed to be compliant with all current legislation regarding the use of hazardous material, such as the RoHS directive.

With our expertise and ability to source alternative components through our worldwide procurement network, we can make the entire process as simple and as quick as possible.

Our lead-free and RoHS services include:

  • PCB and Box Build Assembly
  • Design and Redesigns
  • Surface Mount & Through-Hole Assembly
  • Wave Soldering
  • Materials Analysis and Procurement

RoHS Exempt PCB Assemblies

As well as providing an assembly service that is fully RoHS compliant and meets all current legislation regarding the use of hazardous materials, we also have the capabilities to offer leaded production runs.

Some industries, such as those within the aerospace, military and medical sectors, remain exempt from the RoHS directive and in some instances leaded electronic manufacturing is a preferable choice for your project.
