The Factors Affecting PCB Fabrication Price

Ⅰ. Different materials lead to PCB fabrication price diversity

Taking the ordinary double-sided board as an example, the board materials generally include FR-4, CEM-3, etc. The board thickness varies from 0.2mm to 5.0mm. The copper thickness varies from 0.5oz to 3oz of which causes substantial price differences in the board material. There is also a specific price difference between ordinary thermosetting oil and photosensitive green oil in a solder resist ink. So the price diversity is caused by the difference in materials.

Ⅱ. Different production processes lead to PCB fabrication prices diversity 

Different production processes will cause extra costs to PCB fabrication companies. For example, gold-plated board and tin spray board, Gong board and punch mould with shape, silkscreen line, and dry film line will form different costs and result in price diversity.

Ⅲ. Different making difficulties lead to PCB fabrication price diversity

Even if the materials and processes are the same, the difficulty of PCB fabrication itself is different, which will lead to other PCB appliances costs. Because the problematic blackboard newspaper has a high scrap rate, the cost will inevitably increase, resulting in different prices.

Ⅳ. Different customer requirements will also lead to different prices

The level of customer requirements will directly affect the yield of PCB fabrication manufacturers, resulting in different costs for PCB fabrication manufacturers and finally leading to the variability of product prices.

Ⅴ. Price diversity caused by different PCB fabrication manufacturers

Different costs will be generated for the same product due to other process equipment and technical levels of different manufacturers. Nowadays, many manufacturers like to produce tin spray plates because of their simple process and low cost. However, some manufacturers have a gold-plated plate, and the scrap rate increases, which increases the price.

Ⅵ. Price difference caused by different payment methods

At present, PCB fabrication manufacturers generally adjust PCB prices according to different payment methods with varying ranges, which also leads to price differences.

Ⅶ. Regional differences lead to price diversity

In terms of geographical location, there are specific differences in prices in different regions from south to north. So regional differences also lead to price diversity.
