The demand for electronics these days is higher than ever. Because of this, manufacturing electronics also requires higher levels of precision and skills to create products with the best quality. However, some electronics companies outsource different aspects of production to different sub-contractors, who may not be able to coordinate appropriately to create a truly top-quality product. This is why we recommend keeping your business in just one roof. Getting a single-source contract firm for your PCB fabrication can easily produce better electronic devices.
Manufacturing PCBs in-house means you need to spend money on expensive equipment. If you have an in-house manufacturing facility, it involves a huge capital investment as well as spending on hiring quality personnel, training expenses, and making a production line. You can avoid all of these by simply outsourcing the tasks to a single firm.
Here are five ways on how you can lower your expenses by outsourcing all your PCB services to us:
1.Alternative Component Outsourcing
We have been in the PCB assembly business for a long time, so we have a wide range of component companies to choose from. Little changes in component part sources and minor adjustments to the PCB fabrication can often be effective in significantly reducing per-unit production costs without decreasing the overall quality of the product.
Moreover, we can give you the chance to look at the bigger picture of your component costs. You can use aspects like availability of spare parts and shipping time and fuel to adjust your production costs even more. In markets where price is a huge factor, small adjustments can bring huge price reductions when the product goes to the market.
2.Surface-Mount PCB Optimizations
We use the most up-to-date technologies when it comes to surface-mount PCBs, which can result in huge cost cutting and great improvements in your PCB design. SMT-based component parts are much smaller and often less expensive than alternatives. In addition, SMT designs allow us to use both sides of the board, which can possibly cut all the unneeded PCBs from the final design.
As your partner in PCB fabrication, we can provide prototypes faster and at lower cost compared to working with another company for prototyping, which means more savings for you. We can also create more feedback loops to improve the design and guarantee that the final product matches exactly the prototype it was modelled from.
4.Prognostic Failure Testing
When we handle all your design, prototyping, and manufacturing, we would have better awareness and knowledge about a broad range of product issues. We can track each component for possible failure rates and computer system build quantities and component buys ahead of time to make allowance for possible after-sales support needs.
If we do all aspects of your PCB fabrication, we can avoid the need for special small groups of orders caused by high failure rates on a specific component part or unexpected defect, which reduces your long-term expenses. We can purchase everything upfront to guarantee that you are getting the lowest price for each component.
5.Repairs Instead of Replacements
If you outsource overseas or through multiple third parties, each will have a different function in the production process. This means that an actual repair work may be impossible or difficult to accomplish in a cost-effective and timely manner. Sadly, this may result in huge waste because you may need a whole replacement build when only a single component part is possibly at fault.
We are prepared for handling after-sales support, enabling cost-savings generation all through the support window by reducing expenses for warranty claims.
As a dependable partner for PCB fabrication, we guarantee you that we maintain high quality manufacturing. Quality control is a major issue with mass producing PCBs and we know that errors can cost you a lot, which makes it even more important that you choose the right partner for outsourcing PCB manufacturing.
