EMC Global Technologies Incorporated is recognized as an industry leader in the provision of precision fixtures that aid in the assembly of Printed Circuit Boards.

These fixtures include workboard holders, wave solder pallets and process carriers.


Workboard holders for PCB

EMC manufactures Workboard Holders with three different design approaches, depending on your needs:

Dedicated Workboard Holders are designed for use with Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) of a specific size.


  • A perfect solution for large volume applications that require rapid setup and changeover
  • Allows several PCBs to be precisely positioned simultaneously
  • X,Y tolerances guaranteed to be +/- .001″

Adjustable Workboard Holders (from the EMC Ultimate Logical series) are made to accommodate various PCBs.

  • Ideal for contract manufacturers
  • Available with adjustable or dedicated tooling
  • Great for short runs and prototypes
  • Capitalizable

Mother/Daughter Dedicated Workboard Holder system is a cost-effective alternative for mixed product production.

  • Ideal when PCB population is performed by two or more types of thru-hole insertion equipment
  • Precise PCB location
  • Capitalize Mother / Expense Daughter


wave solder pallets

EMC offers Wave Solder Pallets with two different designs, depending approaches on your volume and budget:

Dedicated Wave Solder Pallets are designed for use with conveyor systems or as an insert. On the edge designers, accustomed to seeing the PCB layouts that just aren’t user friendly.

  • Your solution for processing double-sided mixed technology Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs)
  • Shields sensitive components
  • Can be designed to accommodate multiple PCB locations and odd shaped PCBs
  • Increases throughput and reduces defects by minimizing human interface

Composite Adjustable Wave Solder Pallets are made to accommodate various PCBs.

  • All parts that contact the wave are composite
  • Offers easy setup and maximum flexibility
  • Can be configured with a masking wave break, masking inside rail or other custom designed features
  • Typically a Capital Expense


process carriers for PCB

EMC manufactures a Surface Mount Process Carrier to meet a variety of needs:

Surface Mount Process Carriers are designed to fixture a circuit board through the entire assembly process, including screen print, pick & place, reflow and wash.


  • Eliminates unwanted handling of the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) by operators
  • Made of composite materials that remain stable with repeated passes through the hostile production environment
  • Many clamping methods are available – such as spring-loaded clamps, side force clamps, extremely thin stainless steel clamps and spring-supported location pins
  • Keeps boards rigid through the entire process, ensuring solder joint integrity

Adjustable Process Carriers are made to accommodate various PCBs.

  • Ideal for contract manufacturers
  • Available with adjustable or dedicated tooling
  • Great for short runs and prototypes
  • Capitalizable

Hawker Richardson also supplies semi automated and fully automatic in-line SMT / SMD stencil and screen printers, Pick and place machines and reflow soldering ovens and wave solder machines. As well as a range of ancillary products such as Electroformed [eform] or laser cut stencils and precision stainless steel or polyester mesh screens plus solder paste. PCB storage magazines, board handling equipment and de-paneling machines, AOI systems and assembly tools such as electric torque drivers and screw presenters.

Allow Hawker Richardson to be your partner in productivity.
