A PC board, or printed circuit board (PCB), is a critical component in many electronic devices. It serves as a mechanical support and electrical connection platform for several electronic components.


Can PC boards be repaired? The simple answer is yes, they can! If a single component on the board is faulty, it can often be desoldered and replaced with a new one. If a trace (the conductive pathway on the PCB) is damaged or broken, it can sometimes be repaired by soldering a jumper wire to bridge the gap or by using conductive ink or epoxy to restore the connection. PCBs can suffer from corrosion due to exposure to moisture or other contaminants. In many cases, the corrosion can be cleaned off using appropriate solvents and tools, restoring the functionality of the board. These are only a few examples of how PC boards can be repaired.


Boasting the correct testing equipment and expertise, Motion Tronic can conduct fault-finding analysis on industrial PC boards, potentially saving a significant amount of money compared to replacing them. At Motion Tronic, we take pride in our extensive testing techniques and top-of-the-range equipment, allowing us to pinpoint the root cause of failure swiftly and accurately.


Our approach to repairing PC boards is comprehensive. We maintain a diverse inventory of components, including capacitors, diodes, FETs, ICs, and more. This breadth of stock enables us to often repair boards on the spot, saving both time and money for our clients. While it’s impossible to stock every single component due to the vast array available in the market, we have established reliable sourcing channels to procure any necessary parts to complete the repair swiftly.


In addition to our component inventory, Motion Tronic invests in ongoing training and development for our repair specialists. We ensure that our team is up-to-date with the latest technologies and repair techniques, and we’re ready to tackle even the most complex PC board issues with confidence and efficiency.


Our team of component-level repair specialists is equipped with the skills and tools needed to desolder, rework, and solder components neatly and efficiently. Utilising Weller solder stations, we ensure precise removal and installation of components, maintaining the integrity of the board throughout the repair process.


Once repairs are completed, we subject the board to rigorous testing and simulation to verify the reliability and robustness of the repair. This thorough testing ensures that the repaired board meets our stringent quality standards and provides our customers with peace of mind regarding its performance and longevity.


At Motion Tronic, we understand the importance of minimising downtime for our clients. We offer expedited repair services for urgent cases to ensure the equipment is back up and running as quickly as possible.


So, the next time you encounter a failed industrial PC board, consider sending it to Motion Tronic for assessment and repair. Our expertise, state-of-the-art equipment, ongoing training, and commitment to quality make us your trusted partner in restoring functionality to your valuable equipment.
