With component sizes shrinking and board complexity rising, maintaining a quality standard is challenging. Luckily, the systems responsible for identifying quality defects have also undergone technological advancements. As a contract manufacturer, we have to identify trends early and adopt the technologies that create value for us and ultimately our customers. Here are three quality processes we offer that help deliver great products to you.
Money isn't everything in PCB production and assembly, but you wouldn't know it looking at the behavior of many electronics manufacturers. Although large-scale production can somewhat escape blame due to the sheer size of their orders, small-to-medium-sized demands from startups and SMBs regularly turn down reasonably priced box builds for the cheapest option around.
Behind every device is a manufacturing team who created it. This statement rings even more true for printed circuit boards, even though consumers may not recognize it.
In the world of electromechanical manufacturing, proper documentation is a basic necessity. PCB producers need to know the exact requirements expected of their product, and assembly teams must understand how circuit boards fit into the final build. In other words, documentation is multi-layered, and must include information that is both broad in scope and granular in detail.
