PCBA is the process of assembling various electronic devices on a circuit board through surface packaging technology. The PCB manufacturing process can be roughly divided into four main stages: SMT patching → DIP plugin processing → PCBA testing → product assembly. Due to the strong specialization of the PCBA production process, selecting a PCBA supplier randomly from the market may result in poor PCBA processing effects. Therefore, when choosing a professional PCBA supplier, multiple factors should be considered.
With the continuous introduction of new products and new processes, product integration is becoming higher and more precise, and product quality requirements are becoming more stringent. In this long manufacturing line, there are many different production equipment, which even determines the processing capabilities of a PCBA factory.
PCBA services not only require professional equipment but also require professional process management to control quality. Generally, better PCBA manufacturers will go through system certification to confirm whether the company has this kind of qualification. By reviewing the factory's data documents and qualification certification, the strength of factory quality control can be roughly understood.
As a professional PCBA service manufacturer, what they do involves not only products but also services. The pre-sale and after-sale services of PCBA processing can be an important factor. A PCBA manufacturer with good service awareness can take the initiative to assume responsibility when problems arise, respond quickly, and solve problems for customers.
As a high-precision industry, the PCBA manufacturing industry has been affected by the environment in recent years, and many small electronic processing companies have closed down or transformed. Having many years of industry experience reflects the strength of a PCBA manufacturer to some extent.
In the market, the price of PCBA samples is relatively transparent, but the price varies. Some PCBA manufacturers choose to purchase original components from regular channels and implement strict quality control, all of which will increase the processing costs; while some PCBA manufacturers may reduce material costs to lower prices, resulting in unstable quality. As the saying goes, "you get what you pay for". When choosing a PCBA supplier, you should choose a PCBA manufacturer with high cost performance based on your own situation.
To sum up, when choosing a professional PCBA supplier, these five factors should be considered, combined with the company's product situation and other factors, to select a high-quality PCBA manufacturer.
