SlingShot Assembly has purchased the assets of MWave International, an Illinois-based PCB assembly facility. The purchase adds substantially to SlingShot’s capabilities and capacity through the addition of a third facility.

SlingShot now offers two facilities for medium to large volume production assembly needs and a dedicated facility for quick-turn, low volume assembly needs.

This purchase is part of SlingShot’s overall strategy to add to its capacity and capabilities as well as add to the diversity and size of its customer portfolio.

“We are excited about this new addition to the SlingShot family and what it means in terms of more services and capacity to meet the demands of our growing customer base across the U.S.,” said Stuart McKeel, president of SlingShot.

The purchase expands many of SlingShot’s extensive value-added services such as testing, box build and coating. Testing options include Flying Probe, ICT and Functional. SlingShot now also offers functional testing through LabVIEW. This system is an inexpensive and fully customized method to test PCB functionality. SlingShot engineers work closely with customers to design test processes and fixtures to meet a wide variety of requirements.

Colorado-based SlingShot Assembly is changing how engineers and their companies think about PCB assembly, from small prototype runs to large production projects. Tapping into the power of the industry’s best software and automated assembly equipment, SlingShot can flex to almost any customer requirement. We complete high quality, full turnkey PCB assemblies in as little as 72 hours in our Denver facility and complex aerospace projects in our AS9100 Certified plant in Wisconsin.
