Component Processing Services


Fancort is the industry leader in component lead preparation services for the Semiconductor and Aerospace industries. We have over thirty-nine years of experience in lead forming of a wide variety of packages, including large and small Flat Packs and Quad Packs, DIPs, fiberoptic headers and devices that require conversion from through-hole to SMT. We use our unique universal and dedicated tooling systems and complete process control to ensure accuracy and quick turnaround of your parts to JEDEC and/or mil-spec dimensions, with optional services such as leak testing and tinning if required.


Form and Trim Features:
  • Fancort Industries is ISO 9001:2008 Certified from 16-January-2013 until 16-January-2016. Certificate # US 13/82686.
  • Fancort Industries is "ITAR registered, code M22953, as of 15-May-2008". Fancort is, also, listed with the US Government under Cage Code # 6L 152. Fancort is an approved NASA supplier of Forming Services and Tools.
  • Lead forming to Mil-std-883K and NASA Std FP 51 3414 Rev. H Section 3and IPC J-STD-001E-2010 / April 2010
  • Complete process control and documentation.
  • Standard footprint layouts available, or we will design your custom footprint.
  • All work is done in a controlled ESD Safe environment. Our facility meets all requirements for Class Zero applications (0-250 volts).
  • DOD MIL-STD-1686C Compliant.
  • Turnaround can be as little as three days (typically 10 working days).
  • Inspection of incoming devices for lead skew or other deformity.
  • Inspection report and Certificate of Compliance.
  • CPS What We Offer & What We Don't

Tinning and Gold Removal Features:
  • Lead tinning is per IPC J-STD-001E-2010 & IPC J-STD-001ES-2010 (Requirements for Soldered Electrical & Electronic Assemblies).
  • Fancort is IPC J-STD-001ES CERTIFIED for tinning Space grade flat packs and quad packs as of 18-November-2013.
  • Tinning is done on our automated LTS200 machine.
  • Our tinning is done in a 100% inert, Nitrogen environment.
  • Solder used is 63/37 Ultra pure standard.
  • Fancort uses a non-flux process with an automated tinning machine, Nitrogen blanket and dual dynamic pot process

  • TO Can Tinned and Formed
  • "Flux", for Gold leaded parts, may be used upon customer special request.  Fancort's standard is: No Flux.
  • Flux is a cleaning process that is normally not needed for high reliability Gold parts.
  • Per J-STD-001E & -001ES. "For surface mounted parts, the gold shall be removed from at least 95% of the total gold plated surface to be soldered."
  • Fancort's solder pot testing complies with J STD 001E contamination limits. (Table 3-1 on page 7). 
  • Fancort standard Mil-spec process is a double dip procedure to remove the gold first, then add the second coating.
  • The normal Lead Tinning height is about 1/2 way up the leg, giving full heel coverage for excellent soldering to the PC Board.  In no case shall the solder line extend further than halfway up the shoulder bend.
  • Solder alloys used for solder dip are in accordance with J-STD-006, or equivalent, and shall contain a minimum of 3% lead. Hot solder dip meets the tinning requirements of ANSI/IPC J-STD-001E, Class 3, and tinned leads shall meet the solderability requirements of J-STD-002, Category 3.
  • Fine and Gross Leak Testing
  • Applicable Specifications & Standards:
    • IPC J-STD-001E, "Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies".
    • IPC J-STD-001ES "Space Applications Electronic Hardware Addendum to IPC J-STD-001E."
    • MIL-STD-1580 Physical Destructive Testing
    • MIL-PRF-38535, General Specification for Integrated Circuits Manufacturing
    • MIL-PRF-38534, General Specification for Hybrid Microcircuits
    • MIL-PRF-19500, General Specification for Semiconductor Devices
    • NASA STD 8739.3 with Change #4
    • Mil specs "QQ-S-571F"
