Obsolete & Hard-to-Find Parts

Electronic components and other EEE parts may be difficult to find for reasons such as product obsolescence, high demand, and production interruptions. To make matters worse, increasing industry consolidation is expected to raise product obsolescence rates. As a result it has never been more important to have the right partner to help you overcome the sourcing challenges associated with legacy equipment and systems.

Specialized Services

Lintech Components has the expertise to locate those hard-to-find MilSpec and COTS parts you need—and to recommend substitutions when pricing or availability is unacceptable.

  • Obsolete items required for MRO operations
  • Long lead-time EEE parts
  • Out-of-stock items
  • Items subject to stop-ship notifications
  • Parts substitutions, including upscreened parts
  • Best-in-class screening for quality and authenticity

We can also provide purchasing programs, including lifetime and last-time buys, to ensure long-term access to the parts you need.

Risk Mitigation

We mitigate the risk associated with parts lacking full traceability back to the OEM by purchasing from a scrubbed AVL; performing a 72-point incoming inspection; and offering advanced authenticity inspection, electrical testing and material analysis to the most rigorous standards. Lintech follows best practices in compliance with AS6081, the latest and most rigorous standard  for sourcing and authenticity inspection with respect to mil/aero components. We also provide quality assurance for commercial and industrial applications via a Component Authenticity Verification Report.
