Why Calumet?

Demanding Applications

Calumet circuit boards are found in applications demanding zero failures and zero downtime. Our customers design and manufacture systems for industrial controls, power grid management, life support, medical diagnostics, avionics, aerospace, and the military. Calumet’s high-performance PCBs are found at the heart of equipment designed and manufactured to provide a lifetime of reliable performance.

Intelligent Engineering

Calumet performs comprehensive analysis of customer data. Our highly experienced in-house team of engineers provides a full suite of engineering services leveraging powerful software tools and automation. In addition to performing typical Design for Manufacturing (DFM) checks, our engineers discover and evaluate potential manufacturing issues and engage customers to suggest improvements that may improve yields and reduce cost.

Advanced Equipment & Smart Systems

Calumet circuit boards are produced using some of the most advanced manufacturing equipment and technologies available, including Laser Direct Imaging, 8-Camera Multilayer Punch, X-Ray Drilling, and XACT PCB GeminiX Linear+ software. These systems are integrated and work together to build databases of predictive knowledge, panel-by-panel optimization for imaging and drilling, and provide critical data feedback to engineers for continual improvement of signal layer registration.

Quality Through Process Control

Calumet believes that highly reliable manufacturing processes are the key to producing very consistent product. We monitor hundreds of key process characteristics critical to product quality. We strive to maintain each characteristic at or above a Cpk value of 1.33. Our strategically placed in-process inspections, final inspections, and automated electrical and mechanical verification steps assure our customers that Calumet circuit boards can be received and placed directly into their stock without additional incoming inspection.

Nadcap Accreditation

Calumet Electronics is one of only 14 printed circuit board manufacturers in North America to achieve Nadcap accreditation. In addition to our existing ISO 9001 and AS9100 certifications, Nadcap provides a significant pre-qualification status to attract and retain customers in aerospace, defense and other sectors where high reliability is required. Nadcap represents an unprecedented cooperative industry effort to improve quality, while simultaneously reducing cost and improving efficiencies.

More than Just Circuit Boards

Calumet believes in developing long-term relationships with customers who share the same commitment to manufacturing excellence. Because we believe in total customer satisfaction, our customer service, engineering, and quality assurance teams are always working to make customer needs a priority. Our policy is to exceed customer expectations and continually improve.

Committed to North American Manufacturing

Calumet PCBs are found all over the globe, but each and every board is manufactured in North America. Calumet Electronics was founded in 1968 with the mission of creating jobs in Northern Michigan. Today, as a world leader in manufacturing high-performance PCBs, Calumet Electronics remains committed to North American manufacturing. We live here, play here, and work here.
