Request a Quote

At Alert Tech SMT, our goal is to make the process as seamless and efficient as possible. So, to get started, simply request a quote online. We will ask you to tell us some information about your project upfront — including industry, application and volume — but also understand that project specs can’t all be communicated through a form. Once we receive your RFQ, a member of our team will reach out to you directly to discuss your project in more detail and review your design files.

5-Step Process

Driven by accuracy and efficiency, your project moves from start to finish in five simple steps.

First, we will ask for the following project files:

  • BOM (Bill of Materials)
  • Gerber files
  • Assembly drawings

Next, our team of in-house engineers reviews these documents to provide you with an accurate quote. The quote package will include:

  • Cost
  • Project timeline
  • Delivery date

Once you confirm your order, the third step is the printed circuit board development and fabrication. Throughout this stage, your dedicated account manager will be in touch with status updates.

After development and fabrication is complete, our engineers will conduct functional testing and quality review before boards leave our facilities. Testing services include:

  • DFM (Design for Manufacturability) review
  • First Article Inspection (FAI)
  • Quality control and functionality

And last but not least, the finalized boards are delivered according to your specifications. Shipping options include:

  • Expedited shipping
  • Local pick up
  • Personal delivery (within a 200-mile radius of Houston, Texas)

So, whether you are looking for a full-service turnkey assembly or want to test early-stage iterations, the team at Alert Tech SMT will work closely with you to deliver quality boards. We provide support throughout the process, and you will have access to a real person at the other end of the line. We are here to provide a seamless experience from design file upload to final product delivery.
