These are stocks of common parts we hold on reels ready on our shop-floor for automated SMD assembly. We hold over 1000 different parts in stocks.
We invite you to use these parts when you order a PCB assembly on the PCB Train assembly service. There will be no charge for the use of these parts as part of a PCB Train assembly order.Free Components

This offer saves client's money. Over 60% of the parts on a typical BOM can be supplied free from our reeled stock. If these parts are specified by clients, then there will be no charge for them. Where clients are sourcing parts to free-issue to us, those items on our reeled stock list need not be supplied
Over 1000 resistors, capacitors, bipolar transistors, diodes, ferrites, LEDs, MOSFETs, and voltage regulators are listed. Download the PCB Train free components list in .xls format or in .xlsx format. If you have difficulties downloading this spreadsheet, request a copy by email.
Specify the relevant parts on your BOM as "PCB Train free component stock" and use the same supplier name and supplier part number as per our list
We do this to make our assembly process more efficient, save us and our client?s time and money. These are low value items which we bulk purchase on reels of thousands of parts. These reeled stocks are kept to hand on our shop-floor. This means they do not have to be kitted in and out for every job, saving time. We machine assemble very small runs so we do not want to use small strips of components if we can use our reeled stock instead. It reduces the need to splice small SMD strips with leader and follower tapes to allow them to be mounted on reels.
