10 Day and shorter Lead-times
Though most fabricators have a 15 day or longer standard production lead-time, we offer a 10-day lead-time on most standard board designs.
Some of the driving forces of actual lead time are material availability, current capacity load on required equipment, and any additional tooling required. We make a conscious effort to maintain short standard lead times by employing a number of tools such as high-tech machines that reduce set-up time and increase production speed, a cross-trained work force to shift labor to required operations; and the use of lean and quick response manufacturing principles to reduce waiting time throughout the entire process. We compete on speed, quality, and service.
Our standard lead-time includes multilayer designs with the following attributes:
- Up to 18 layers
- Buried or blind vias
- Plugged and Plated vias
- Impedance control
- HASL, Lead-Free HASL, Immersion Silver, or ENIG.
- Controlled Depth Milling
- (Material must be available at the time of order. Standard RoHS (Tg180°C Td>340°C) materials are always in stock at SAE Circuits Express. If the job requires special order materials that are not in the normal or SAE’s specialty stock, the lead-time clock for manufacturing will begin after the material is received.)
