How to choose a reliable PCBA manufacturer?
1. Hard power of the company
The first factor we need to consider during PCBA supplier management is the company hard power, namely the equipment and production lines. For one thing, the factory equipment represent its production capacity, like the brand and model of Placement Machine, the point can be mounted daily and the smallest footprint. For another, production line not means one or two machines and it requires supporting use of various machines. For example, the installation of First-Piece Tester, SPI and AOI, which will reflect if the factory has the ability to meet partners production demand and complete the manufacturing schedule. Besides, for mass production, it’s also important to evaluate the number of production lines, because it will be hard to delivery the large batch even though working day and night only with 1-2 lines.
2. Soft power of the company
The soft power is shown by various certifications, like ISO9001, ISO14001, UL and ROHS, which is powerful to prove the strength and capacity. In addition, it’s extremely vital to build a team who can settle the problems timely and flexibly response to all kinds of emergencies facing during production. Another important factor is the experience in PCBA. Focus on PCBA only, the longer the factory runs, the richer experience and more excellent quality management capacity the factory has.
3. Proposed price
In PCBA industry, the price is different largely for all factories. Some partners think the price first and compare the price crazily with lots of manufacturers. But in reality, the price, including components sourcing and mount points is comparatively transparent. So why is the price of some factories so low? There will be some reasons and it mainly results from the disabilities, such as using second-hand components, inferior solder paste. That is why we not suggest the price comparison strategy. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for. But it also not means only the higher price is reasonable. When we are considering the price, we must know the profit space of our product and choose the suppliers balancing in quality and lead time along with cost-effective.
