Whether you require software, hardware or a complete Turnkey package, NEO can provide the solution.

We can design directly from a client's specification, using our manufacturing experience to create a design ready for production, or troubleshoot an existing product or project. We cater for conventional through hole, surface mount and hybrid assembly, utilising single or multi-layer boards and guaranteed RoHS compliant components.

Initial manufacturing runs are kept in-house, however, larger quantities can be outsourced offshore, keeping your unit costs to an absolute minimum while still maintaining our strict in-house quality standards.

With a recent addition of an Essemtec Paraquda to complement its existing four Juki 570L SMT pick and place machines, Neo has the capacity and flexibility to suit most needs. Conventional (leaded) component assembly is handled by our team of PCB assemblers, while circuit board inspection is catered for with our MIRTEC MV-2HTL AOI (Automated Optical Inspection) system - dramatically improving the accuracy and throughput over traditional manual optical systems.

All product testing and final assembly is also catered for in-house, while our packing and dispatch departments ensure your product reaches its destination safe and sound.
