Lowering Costs with Maryland PCB Assembly Services

Category: Circuit Board AssemblyPublished on 2017 Feb, 16Author

The demand for electronics increases with every passing month, with consumers looking for products that are smaller, faster, and better than their predecessors. This means electronics manufacturing must develop ever-greater levels of skill and precision to ensure they are delivering the highest-quality products. It also means streamlining the process to make sure your product gets to the consumer faster.

 

Traditional methods of outsourcing meant layers of subcontractors who don’t communicate and coordinate sufficiently enough to ensure a top-quality product, on time, every time. Choosing to partner with a Maryland PCB assembly service not only improves your overall product, it can lower your manufacturing costs as well.

How to Keep Costs Low with a Maryland PCB Assembly Service

  • Keep the board simple - While consumers want their products to be complex, your board design doesn’t necessarily have to be complicated. Make sure the physical dimensions for everything on the board, including copper pieces, leave enough room for the automated assembly process, without needing the human touch to accommodate fine dimensions. To put it another way, the closer objects are packed onto your board, the more you have to pay. That is why, as part of our value-added engineering, we look for ways to simplify your board, including eliminating unnecessary parts.
  • Simplify your components as well - Components, by their very nature, take up room on the board. In order to make space, the temptation is to choose small, delicate components. However, choosing a larger component will ensure the machinery can work around the components without a higher risk of faulty cuts or errors. Choosing the right component is a bit like finding the foot that fits the glass slipper. Our prototype testing will help you find what components provide the necessary combination of form and function.
  • Design your board with Surface Mount Technology (SMT) in mind - By utilizing both sides of the board, surface mount technology lowers board costs and speeds up production. Designing with SMT in mind helps you refine your board design and reduce the number of PCBs needed for your product. SMT components are also smaller and less expensive than their traditional through-hole technology counterparts, giving you more bang for your buck.
  • Lower component costs - Telan Corporation has been providing PCB assembly services in Maryland for over 35 years. We have a trusted supply chain and great relationships with our suppliers. We can help source your components at lower costs, and advise you on the availability and shipping costs of parts, helping you further analyze your component costs.
