Our in-house manufacturing facility gives us an unparalleled level of flexibility and control to meet even the tightest deadlines.

Our mission is to realise the 4th Industrial Revolution for all businesses regardless of size. We provide the tools to open up a world of machine monitoring, connect legacy equipment for Industrial IoT projects, extract significant data from your production line, and initiate factory automation projects.

We Design

Brainboxes world class Research and Development team comprises 40% of all of our employees. With considerable experience in both hardware and software design, many of the R&D department also hold multiple degree qualifications. Covering chip design to board layout, including firmware, device driver and application software engineering - we have proven expertise at all levels of product design.

Rigorous real-world test cases, drawing on many years of customer feedback, are used in the development and proving of every new product.

Our unique combination of in-house design and manufacture means we’re able to deliver custom design - perfect fit products exactly as specific applications demand, often this comes at a lower cost than off the shelf products.

You can use our best of breed products as the basis for your next custom design.

We Manufacture

Brainboxes' production facility offers a highly flexible and responsive surface mount production line (SMT), capable of single-sided and double-sided assembly of all of our own products.

Camera-guided precision placement of components in the 0402 size and upwards, with repeatability to ± 0.05mm, allows the Production Team to confidently handle all new products that flow from the Design Team. Our manufacturing assembly line offers rapid changeovers between products, and combined placement rates up to 28,000 components per hour (CPH).

Well established Lean Six Sigma practices are integral to our processes, and ensure maximum machine utilisation and quality throughout every time. Our whole facility is designed to respond effectively to customer orders of all sizes; from small requirements to large volume rollouts.
