Hi everyone,
Does anybody know any good low volume PCB manufacturers in Australia,
preferably someone who doesn't mind a few one off's without charging the earth.
Must do double sided and via's.
Thanks in advance,

Hi Roder,

I use Don Alan Electronics in South Australia. They provide a prototype
service where they'll do 3, 6 or 9 boards. I think they put all the
PCBs onto one big board and submit that to the manufacture, so as to
reduce the cost.

There address is:

       Don Alan Electronics
       107ABurbridge Rd,
       Hilton SA  5033

       Ph: (08) 43 3957
       Fax:(08) 234 5339

       email: donaldspamKILLspamdonalan.com.au


The cost for quality double sided plated thru vias with silkscreen is;

       cost = Num($10(Xinch + 0.5) x (Yinch +0.5)) + $30 tooling

where Num is the number of boards 3, 6 or 9.

If you want more than 9 boards they will give you a quote. They are
basically set up for doing prototype boards.

They do batch runs about twice a month. They take the PCB layout in
Protel or LabCEntre format.

When you contact them, they will send you a kit containing EasyTrax and
a neat program that will run over your Protel file calculate the exact
cost and check the board for complience to their requirements.

You can then email the output file to them.

I've had a couple of boards made by them and I'm very pleased.

I have no connection with them other than a satisfied customer.


They also do 4 layer boards as well now.

I hope this helps,

Peter

Try East Coast Printed Circuits -

Ph (02) 9982 1377
fax (02) 9971 0437

Minimum cost for a 4"x4" double sided plated-through board solder-levelled
is under $200 (you get several boards for that price). There's also a newer
outfit whose name escapes me right now but who advertise in the electronics
mags (WNIE, Electronics News etc.) who are offering one panel, as much as
you can fit on it, solder masks and overlay, for something close to
that price.

It may pay you to have a look at:
http://www.airborn.com.au/bec.html

BEC Manufacturing have a proto service that looks like this:
(OZ dollars)
10.6" by 16.6" from $145 to $292.50
14.6" by 16.6" from $164.50 to $360
The price range starts at single sided only and goes all the way up to
the works.

Extra panels range from $38 to $70
First panel setup cost drops, but there is a small reset up cost on
additional later orders.

Takes a little reading to take it all in.

The cheapest double sided PTH without the extras in the smaller panel
will cost you $220. Extra panels are $48, and the reset up cost for the
next time is $35.

I have just gone from my old manufacturer of many years to this new
company in the last few days, so I'll see how it goes.

The bit I like is they are web based. I attached a file to an Email
message yesterday, and they are running it through the machinery today.

And they stick to the price providing you don't want anything real
special, or want more than 40 boards per panel. Overnight bag shipping
is $10.

i once made enquiries ( i am in sydney ) for ten 60x30mm pcbs, single
sided, and they were $13.something each. the makers want to know how many
sides(layers), how many holes, how many different hole sizes, size of the
board, silk screening etc. and for just a few you will have to pay between
100 and 200 $ probably.  as for the manufacturers, i can't remember the
name of the people i asked or their phone number but buy a copy of
electronics australia or
silicon chip from a newsagent and look in the back, since these are
hobbyist mags, the manufacturers there cater for the little poeple. hope
this helps. bye.
