Outsourcing the procurement and kitting process allows customers to benefit from our experience and commercial leverage. We are able to procure the complete inventory ensuring the conformance of components and products, removing the risk of counterfeit or sub-standard parts. Materials are sourced, delivered, checked and presented correctly to our production departments.
Gemini Tec use powerful MRP/ERP systems to manage its materials and inventory, all items are bar-coded with a unique carrier ID bar-codes, allowing us to track the quantity used and the exact location within our facility.
We monitor and control any MSD devices before, during and after the build process, with baking and sealing machines widely available in all departments.
- MRP BOM Import process with MPN matching.
- Common branded R&C's in stock.
- Full batch trace on all components.
- Hard to find and obsolete component sourcing.

We have access to a network of global suppliers and manufactures, from bare PCBs, board level components to metal enclosures and manage supplier performance and product quality on your behalf. Our system is compliant for full traceability, detailing all batch movements and issues through all locations - back to the finished serial number. We have extensive experience in bare printed circuit board engineering and manufacture, follow this link to find out more.
Material Handling & Loading:
When we procure your materials our integrated system tracks all component inventory using unique batch related bar-codes. All the components used for the build are initially scanned into ESD totes, then subsequently scanned at various locations within our facility offering site wide visibility.
The unique bar-code produces a 'data set' which is seamlessly passed into our shop floor loading software to accurately plan the shortest set up time possible for the SMT process. The data set allows our SMT lines to test, validate and count all the components consumed ahead of any stock updated and/or material replenishment.
As our advanced Mycronic placement lines operate with intelligent Agilis feeders we do not require the use of full reels to build products, which allows us to limit material usage and minimise excess cost and wastage.
To help is import your BOM and optimise the build process, please download our recommend BOM format: Gemini Tec BOM Format.
Free Issue Materials:
In some cases customers provide materials on a free issue basis. All these materials can be stocked, tracked and managed in our ESD storage locations at Gemini Tec.
We are happy to accept 'Full Free Issue Kits' and provide you the benefits of our material handling system, however we need to request the materials are supplied in a suitable format. We strongly recommend early engagement with us to discuss the process to fit with your business requirements.
If you are considering supplying the 'blank PCB's' as a free issue item, please contact us. We can provide you the correct engineering support to ensure the quality of your product is not compromised.
