What To Look For When Hiring Electronic Contract Manufacturers

Posted by Matthew Turpin on Thu, Jul 16, 2015 @ 07:30 AM

Following the manufacturing boom of the 1990s through today, there's now literally a world of options in terms of hiring contract electronics firms.  How do you choose between your options?

Picking the right partner is more essential than ever, if you want your electronics design to succeed.  More products are being introduced into the marketplace more quickly, while both businesses and consumers continue to demand higher quality.  Simply offshoring manufacturing to the lowest bidder can easily mean a product that's late to market, and with quality that's not up to par.

Manufacturers today have found ways to cut costs while simultaneously offering more services than ever before.  You can get a lot more for your money, if you look carefully.

Electronics Manufacturing: From the Imagination to Store Shelves - It's All Interconnected

Posted by Matthew Turpin on Thu, Apr 24, 2014 @ 08:00 AM

When you look at a PC board, what do you see? To the untrained eye, the makeup of these boards may seem chaotic and confusing. An electronics professional, on the other hand, would see a symphony of microchips, all in harmony with interconnected circuits. The completed board brings life to the technological gadgets, tools, and devices that all of us depend on each day, and its the perfect interconnection of the various components and circuitry formed by copper wire tracing that makes this possible.

3 Times You Should Use A PC Board Assembly

Posted by Adam Washburn on Thu, Jul 25, 2013 @ 07:00 AM



Although your electronics business has been doing fine on its own for awhile, there comes a point in every smaller company's life when it must decide whether or not to enlist the help of third party services in order to meet customer demands or to reach goals. As you weigh the costs and benefits of working with a PC board assembly company, however, you may find it difficult to know what will be best for your business. To make your decision easier, here are three situations in which contracting with a PC board assembly company should be seriously considered.

1. You need to develop small, highly complex products

Assembling efficient and effective PCBs for today's small, lightweight electronic devices is nothing to scoff at. With technology shrinking, it only becomes more difficult for contract electronic manufacturers to develop and produce PC boards that will fit the bill. If your company is unable to afford the costs associated with advanced, state-of-the-art assembly machinery, you may be finding it very difficult to keep up with consumer demands. Older, clumsier machinery may struggle to print circuits to the board in a way that is accurate and precise. Ultimately, this can result in faulty products, lost money as you are forced to throw out boards where the circuit was not properly etched, and can make the assembly process take far longer than it should. Once this step is completed, you must have the ability to carefully and skillfully drill holes into the board in order to accommodate all of the necessary design components.
