Celestial Effects and Thermalogic have been designing and manufacturing electronic circuits with the
plated through hole technology since 1971. It is a tried and true technology and very robust. Our assemblers
are very proficient in this process of "stuffing" PC Boards and hand soldering each component into place.
As the market is ever evolving with smaller components, surface mount technology (SMT) has taken hold. 15 years ago, our company retooled our entire facility for SMT manufacturing including high tech reflow ovens, stencilers and pick and place machines. 80% of our manufacturing now uses SMT Technology. With the smaller componenets, extreme care must be taken to guard against ESD induced component failures. Our factory is 100% ESD safeguarded. We've installed ESD safe flooring throughout the facility, all assemblers, engineers and technicians wear ESD safe clothing and shoes and all components are received and stored using ESD safe containers and shelving.
