The services that an electronics manufacturer can provide are not exactly the same, but a good electronics manufacturing supplier can usually provide a one-stop service. From electronic part and assembly design, testing, and manufacturing, to delivery and providing aftermarket support, they draw on their expertise and extensive industry experience throughout the project to help you complete the project smoothly and quickly and to keep your products ahead of your competitors. You no longer need to spend a lot of money to hire an in-house team or buy production equipment, instead, you can focus on other core businesses. In this blog, we will give you a detailed introduction to all the services that electronics manufacturers can provide, and after reading it, you may be able to better judge whether you need to outsource electronic manufacturing services to them.
Printed Circuit Board Assembly
PCB assembly is one of the most important services provided by electronic manufacturers, and it is also a crucial step in the electronic manufacturing process, which directly affects the performance of products. Commonly used PCB assembly methods are surface mount technology(SMT) and through-hole technology to solder components such as integrated circuits, transistors, and resistors to the board. Both technologies have their pros and cons, but in recent years most electronics manufacturers prefer surface mount technology for PCB assembly.
You can rely on an electronics manufacturer to handle all kinds of cable assemblies from simple to complex for you, a good electronics manufacturer can provide a one-stop cable assembly service, from design, and production to testing. And it is crucial to test the cable assemblies before delivery, different types of tests such as pull test, functional test, continuity test, and Hipot test are used to ensure that their performance can meet the requirements.
An established electronics manufacturer has the expertise and experience to perform electromechanical assembly of products, and they must be specialized in both electrical and mechanical components to ensure product quality. They are capable of providing excellent box building services, manufacturing enclosures in different materials such as steel, aluminum, plastic, etc. upon request. In addition, you can rely on electronics manufacturers to provide services such as packaging, configuration management, and testing of the functions of development components.
Contract design is another important service provided by electronics manufacturers, who can design a product for you according to your requirements or work with your in-house team to improve the design. They have dedicated engineers and production teams to help the design process run smoothly, and they are usually involved at the beginning of the project, using their high level of expertise in circuit simulation and prototyping, 3D CAD, technical feasibility studies, etc. to create a workable design.
Testing services provided by electronics manufacturers ensure that the products delivered to you meet the quality requirements. Failure to test can lead to huge losses due to product quality issues, including damage to the product and the company’s reputation. To ensure product quality, manufacturers need to employ a wide range of tests including flying probe testing, burn-in testing, in-circuit testing, automated optical inspection, and functional testing.
Prototyping is an important part of the entire electronic manufacturing service process. It is performed before the start of formal production which is conducive to discovering potential problems in advance, checking design errors, etc., thereby reducing the probability of production errors, which is beneficial to the smooth implementation of production. The prototyping services involved mainly include visual modeling, proof of concept, working prototypes, and functional prototypes.
Procurement and Inventory Management
To manufacture an electronic product, it is often necessary to purchase a large number of raw materials and components, especially some complex products. You will find that the supply chain is very complex, and you need to negotiate with many suppliers, which will make your job difficult and cumbersome. A good electronics supplier usually has a reliable and stable supply chain, and they can help you source high-quality materials within your budget. Also, they can provide inventory management services according to your needs, and then pack and ship your goods at the time you require.
Some excellent electronics manufacturers also provide lifecycle services. Their services are not limited to delivering products to customers, more importantly, they can provide customers with desired support throughout the project lifecycle, including New Product Introduction(NPI), product calibration and refurbishing, remanufacturing, logistics management, and other after-market services. Cooperating with such suppliers is a great choice, which is conducive to improving the market competitiveness of your products.
