PCB Assembly, Through-Hole Assembly Services

Prototype – Low Volume Assembly Specialists

Comptek has the capability of providing prototype and low volume/small quantity, through-hole PCB assembly services at the highest quality level possible in a cost-effective manner. Through-hole technology or “thru-hole”, refers to the mounting scheme used for electronic components that involves the use of leads on the components that are inserted into holes drilled in printed circuit boards (PCB) and soldered to pads on the opposite side either by manual assembly (hand placement) or by the use of automated insertion mount machines.


We use through-hole placement techniques for radial and axial components for low-volume production. Higher environmental stress can be taken by these PCB assemblies due to their stronger mechanical bonds. Additionally, for complete, turnkey electronic/electrical components, we can fabricate, mount and label, connect, assemble, align and adjust, and secure them to your exact specifications with all work performed in the USA.

Comptek is comfortable with varying levels of PCB assembly work ranging basic to complicated, intricate integration tasks that require advanced industry knowledge and possible custom software development. Please view our software development pages for more in-depth information on these capabilities. All software development is also performed at our USA facility, in Farmington Hills, Michigan. This assembly is often done in collaboration with our designers and engineers in product development, sometimes assisting with prototypes and building test systems and products. We are fully vertically integrated and can take your product prototype from its CAD design to circuit board to full visual and electronic component testing – truly integrated turnkey services.

Quality Assured Through-Hole PCB Assembly

Quality control is paramount at Comptek. Our engineered components and systems usually perform a vital role in manufacturers’ Quality Management Systems (QMS), ensuring compliance with ISO 9001 Standards. Real-time data through test system integration is relayed for analysis to production managers to detect trends and isolate possible problems quickly boosting efficiency and productivity.
