So, you've got yourself a successful manufacturing and engineering business, but suddenly need to ramp up business and start producing even more products for your clients. There can be two routes for this: either you start building up an in-house manufacturing department to build your products, or have someone else do it for you. Likely, you don't want to spend tons of money and would rather save it as well time, so that normally means going with the latter decision.
Outsourcing your product assembly doesn't have mean the "traditional" version of outsourcing--meaning, all of the products are made overseas with little to no supervision, causing you some more than minor stresses to make sure everything isn't faulty or counterfeit.
Actually, outsourcing can mean making sure your business and products stay in the same Time Zone and shore with a completely US-based company among other benefits. Now that you know, what are the other benefits of a PCB assembly service?
Outside source of technical competency
Sometimes an extra pair of eyes (and hands) is needed to make everything perfect--even with components. Sometimes outside help can make sure that your products are only of the highest quality by hiring only the most competent of engineers and doing several tests before sending out the assembled pieces. Instead of relying solely on your own technicians and employees, you can get extra help and sources so you don't have to deal with broken or faulty equipment.
Most companies are "all-in-one" for your PCB assembly service needs
Designing, testing, and final product are all very different stages with their own amounts of time and effort put in. Normally, companies offer all three and even more to make sure your printed circuit boards are ready as soon as they're shipped off. Need help with the design? How about the testing of certain components? No problem!
Get US-based support for all your questions
Tired of dealing with overseas customer service that only runs you around? Stop dealing with representatives who only rely on fed lines and are only trying to get you off the phone and start being helped by people who know all about printed circuit board assembly to make sure all of your questions and concerns are answered. And not only can you find US-based help, you can also find companies with 24/7 support.
Environmental friendly services and e-waste management
To help lessen your carbon footprint and dispose of PCB and other components responsibly, you can have someone who is certified do it for you. RoHs compliant assembly components are very important for any PCB assembly service, and they can help you be compliant too.
Lab services and test analysis
You can use state-of-the-art lab services in order to perform compliance, system, and component tests to ensure low risk of failure. Also, if there is an error of failure, a team can run an analysis to make sure you understand where the problem is arising and prevent it in future components and supplies.
PCB assembly services doesn't have to mean outsourcing to a company across the other side of the world. It can simply mean a company completely US-based, ready to help with all of your supply and manufacturing needs.
The future of American PCB shops will be more attractive to your company than you would think. What do you want to see out of a PCB assembly service?
