Internal CAM Engineering Resource

Momentum Circuits offer a free internal CAM engineering recourse to assist of customers as an added value part of our customer service.

This ensures that every single order we receive will be manufactured to an exacting standard and be 100% fit for purpose based on IPC based design rules and tolerances.

In addition to optimising the board designs for manufacture (tolerances, pad sizes and track widths where applicable), we are also able to rapidly panelise PCB and return the stepped data to facilitate purchase of solder stencils in the most cost effective way.

It is very easy for board manufacturers to simply follow the Gerbers and engineering drawings as supplied, but this doesn’t ensure that all manufacturing and assembly considerations have been taken into account.

Similarly, our customers might want to change small aspects of the design, change a component footprint or even convert a design from traditional through-hole to surface mount technology, and we can carry out this work for you without cost or delay to your business.

If there are any aspects of the board design that do not follow tradition logic, or conflicts between the Gerber data and the engineering drawing, we will always raise a query in the form of an Engineering Query (EQ) as we feel that spotting a design error or conflict will save considerable time and money later if the boards are manufactured incorrectly.

PCBs are bespoke and absolutely production critical. On this basis, we never make assumptions that might compromise our customers’ assembly or product performance in any way.

Finally, Momentum also offer a data recovery service to either update or completely reverse engineer a PCB from either old design films or even by scanning physical boards where the original data may have been either corrupted or lost by the owners of the design or their historic PCB supplier. The new revised data and any other changes other than standard manufacturing tolerances will always be sent back to the end-user customer for approval before we up-issue an approve a design for manufacture.

Momentum also offer a comprehensive service to support nominated PCB build applications and controlled impedance applications that include track width and copper trace calculations and certified impedance stack ups.
