Working closely with customers, our experienced technical team can take your project from the initial prototyping phase and rapidly move it into full-scale production.
With over 35 years of expertise as a UK based electronics contract manufacturer, Prima continually invests in the latest production equipment and ensures its skilled team members are fully trained so that we can deliver a broad range of high-quality services including procurement, Printed Circuit Board assembly such as Surface Mount Assembly (SMA), Through-Hole Assembly, and mixed assembly methods as well as testing and full product or electro-mechanical assembly (Box Build).
Our prototyping service supports our customers’ new product introduction (NPI) process, enabling them to quickly generate a functional prototype that is fully inspected. These prototypes can then be used for demonstration as well as for testing by end-users in the field for valuable design validation and design refinement.
Following prototyping we can provide support with any required modifications or improvements and later with full product assembly. All prototypes are manufactured on the main production lines to ensure readiness for full-scale production.
Prima uses optical and X-ray systems to thoroughly inspect your boards, so that any defects can be identified. We are able to ensure your boards comply with IPC Level 3 standards, which are applicable for medical devices. Our technical team can also program and test your boards to a supplied specification, using a variety of in-house or customer supplied equipment.
We can also provide assistance with procurement of bespoke components, final product assembly (box build) and final testing.
"The advice and assistance we received from Prima was invaluable in meeting all our objectives.” Alexandra Grigore, Chief Product Officer “The challenging nature of this project meant that our team had to work closely and collaboratively with Simprint’s engineers throughout. This was essential to achieving the results in such a short time frame, as prototyping, testing and the scale-up of production all had to be done at an accelerated rate” Claire Woods, Prima Managing Director
Acute time to market pressures meant that a quick turnaround was essential for Pitney Bowes. TTP was appointed to rapidly design and develop the new print module while Prima was responsible for supplying prototype assemblies in short timescales for test and evaluation.
“Beyond the actual production, the contract manufacturer had to have the resources to take on a diagnostic role, analysing different aspects of the project then implementing optimisations as and when required. From past experience, we knew Prima could tick all of these boxes.” Charles Cooke TTP’s Project Leader
Prima provided excellent support in what has been an unprecedented year impacted by a global pandemic.” Paul Mayhew, Director of Global Procurement at Pitney Bowes
