Manufacturing Capabilities

With a “design for certification” approach, Sealevel’s manufacturing and engineering teams collaborate closely from concept to official production. Sealevel manages the entire product development, manufacturing, testing and packaging cycle. Our Electronic Design & Manufacturing Services (EDMS) are available for projects ranging from turnkey design and production to quality assembly of your own design.

Printed Circuit Board Assembly
Our printed circuit board assembly process is driven by a state-of-the-art Surface Mount Technology (SMT) line. Sealevel employs methods for defect tracking and trending, route verification, feeder verification and real-time process alarming. Electrostatic Discharge Controls (ESD) and Moisture Sensitive Controls (MSD) are in place throughout the facility.

Through Hole Assembly
Our in-house team of solder technicians is J-STD-001 Certified and IPC-A-610 Certified. Following through hole assembly, boards are cleaned via our inline aqueous cleaner.

Board Level Test
Full functional testing is completed on all Sealevel standard I/O and computing products. Custom test plans are developed in partnership with customers to facilitate optimal field performance. Our on-site x-ray, vibration and thermal test equipment enable pre-certification testing.

Box Build Assembly
Sealevel’s automated conformal coating equipment allows for accurate, defect-free conformal coating and protection of electronics. For assembly, technicians follow comprehensive procedures for product building, labeling and modification.

Special Projects Area
Within Sealevel’s 52,000 square foot facility, there is a dedicated space for the manufacturing and test of high-profile projects. This space allows for enhanced physical security as required and is configurable to meet product specifications, ensuring optimal production for OEMs.

Finished Goods Inventory
Sealevel maintains dedicated warehouse space to allocate for custom project storage. Standard I/O and computing products are replenished in accordance with product lifecycle management.

Shipping
Standard shipping configurations include reinforced enclosures as well as ESD foam and materials. Sealevel’s shipping team completes a detailed packaging evaluation for all products – standard and custom – oftentimes partnering with OEMs to meet their requirements.
