Saturn comprehensively maintains the entire PCB platform by isolating each part of the process into succinct stages that ensure the highest levels of quality. This rigid isolation accumulates into greater flexibility for the overall process, as well as paves the way for Saturn to set Industry criteria through its participation in ground-breaking research.
With factories in North America and Asia, SEC produces your products in the appropriate facility based on technology and volume. The size and scale of our manufacturing facilities allow us to meet the demands of large-scale commercial production. The capabilities in all of our facilities blend to provide complete lifecycle support.
Saturn has a complete manufacturing facility at Romulus MI. with TS16949 Automotive Qualification. Saturn does First Article inspection on all new lots. Saturn will inventory up to 4 weeks at Romulus MI. Saturn does pre-engineering on all boards prior to sending offshore for manufacturing and panelization if required. Saturn will manufacture your board if you have a quality issue at the same cost as offshore and deliver on time to support your production. Saturn has its own team off-shore that supervises orders at the manufacturing level.
