Specialist high technology company Labtech is launching a focused turnkey microwave MIC assembly service to customers around the world who are looking for outsourcing solutions. The company offers broadband microwave components and a range of related microwave manufacturing services from its centers in Presteigne and Milton Keynes, UK. It has identified a demand for its turnkey service, which is another step in its continued expansion that has recently seen an investment of £300,000 in equipment that automates chip placement and wire bonding at the Milton Keynes facility.

The company can offer a comprehensive build-to-print microwave module and component manufacturing service, including design support, fully automatic chip placement and wire bonding, thin film and box build assembly, microwave printed circuit board manufacture, RF machining and microwave alignment and test up to 40 GHz. "We are in a unique position of being able to offer a wide range of manufacturing services, which can be unified into a competitive and focused turnkey microwave MIC assembly service," said Bob Lowther, Labtech's sales and marketing director. "This service is designed to meet the growing market demand for outsourcing solutions."
