s.m.a.r.t. was established in 2008 to provide a series of services to improve manufacturing efficiency, technical know-how and quality.

s.m.a.r.t. includes several services that can be applied to any of CML’s partners – for any factory, company and industry. It provides direct access to additional resources, such as highly qualified specialists and diversified technology adhering to international quality standards and mindset.

s.m.a.r.t. will help you deliver excellence at every point of your value chain.


Consultation and assistance on advanced and standard technology by CML PCB experts in the Engineering department and New Product Introduction (NPI) team. Methods and stages are defined during NPI process and Design for Manufacturing to ensure a cost-efficient PCB design and a smooth transition from sample through ramp-up into mass production stage.


Quick turn prototyping for certain solutions can be arranged according to requirements. We address your needs and provide guidance and arrangements for fast and flexible production.


We focus on providing you with zero-defect quality. Our highly qualified specialists work with diversified technology and superior infrastructure. We use our own internal, well equipped labs as well as certified external laboratories like SGS and MTT.

Supervision on reliability tests and detailed product validation for base materials are applied according to international or customer specific standards.


We research into new products and technology to support and provide solutions to enhance material and processes and overcome our customers’ engineering questions e.g. related to Thermal management. For Immersion tin inquires our chemical company, CML Chemistry can be of assistance for this aspect

The hands-on training at s.m.a.r.t. was a valuable experience for me to understand more on how CML integrates its partners. I spent four days gaining insight into every production process step from incoming raw materials to final quality control. With the gathered knowledge at s.m.a.r.t. I am now able to design PCBs more efficiently.
