Is it possible for PCB assembly house to solder a stranded wires to THT holes as shock-resistance?

I have designed a PCB which needs wires soldering to THT holes. Is it possible to outsource this?

Yes unless the design is optimized. If the PCB is an automotive electronics solution, it should not only withstand slight shocks, it should also withstand vibrations and some harder shocks.It is advisable to use only those connectors designed for such cables and don’t solder the cable at all. There are additional strain-relief parts for those connectors and cables.

Or, you can ask for design tips from your assembly house to ensure successful mass production.

What Others Are Asking

Is scavenging parts from consumer electronics for own commercial products, a good idea?

I have a product that I’m trying to bring to market testing and if successful I’ll get them manufactured. For prototype I pulled a camera PCB from an old webcam. It so happens that because my volume of production is low it is actually three times cheaper to buy brand new webcams and pull the PCB and camera off it. Could I get into trouble for doing this?
