Choosing a PCB Assembly / Electronics Manufacturing Services company for your project can be pretty challenging, but there are ways to narrow down your options. When choosing a company to work with, you need to know details about their customer service record, their production capabilities and their quality standards.
Are you sure the company you’re looking at will meet your specifications within the stated deadline?
Accountability and quality factors are essential, but aren’t the only things you need to consider. Here are other equally important criteria you need to help you decide which PCB Assembly services company to go for:
What types of services does the Electronics Manufacturing Services company offer? Check whether they assemble flex, rigid-flex and rigid circuits – both single and multilayer – and offer a turnkey service feature. Make sure they also work with a wide selection of PCB material options. Find out what you can about their client base. If they have a lengthy client list, they’re more likely to have experienced and knowledgeable staff. You may want to know that the company is comfortable working with the telecommunications, aerospace, and medical industries, for example.
Check whether the company provides project management from end to end. For example, what are their policies concerning inventory management, warehousing, and shipping? Do they offer PCB prototype assembly? A company that provides these services will help you create streamlined production operations.
Choosing a PCB Assembly services company that provides in-house design and assembly process review can help enormously with quality control. It also helps speed up delivery times. Make sure you know how the company tests for quality. Do they have up-to-date machinery and technology? Do their employees consistently produce a high standard of product?
Does your company facilitate a layout review? You want to nip any problems in the bud before the company starts manufacturing. You don’t want the stress and cost involved with making another design spin because the first one didn’t meet your specifications.
What happens if you need to change the specifications for your project? Is your EMS company up to that challenge? Are they able to make changes quickly and efficiently, with minimum fuss?
