What does the cost of contract manufacturing services depend on?
The cost of contract manufacturing services includes a complexity of elements. You can see the basic ones below:
A necessity to engage a team of developers
We are always glad when our clients know what they want and have ready project documents. But in case you only have an idea and do not have a development team, we will help you. Our team will develop the documents for contract manufacturing of electronics and perform custom specific assembly quickly and with good quality. Undoubtedly, the total cost of the services will increase.
The components and materials used
The components are selected at the stage of designing according to technical and economic product requirements. The cost of the components makes a substantial contribution to the prime cost of the order. We collaborate with the best manufacturers of components and materials. Besides, at the cost of the manufacturing volume of equity production we can offer low price on the components to our clients.
Types of electronic boards surface mounting
For each certain task we analyze and select the most suitable method of components mounting to the board. During manufacture surface mounting of smd components and through-hole printed dip mounting can be used. Or a combination of both types of mounting. The cost of dip mounting is higher, regardless whether it’s wave soldering of printed circuit boards or manual mounting.
Necessity for additional services
Apart from the surface mounting of the printed circuit boards, additional operations may be included into manufacturing process under the client’s request. We offer packaging of devices according to drafts, assembly and mounting of electronic components, laser boards, bodies, plate engraving, etc. For very difficult orders we can also perform printed circuit board layout , circuit reconstruction and patterned printed circuit board layout as well as production of special fittings for wave soldering.
The bigger lot size you order, the cheaper one device will cost, which means that the whole lot will be cheaper. The price of customized printed circuit boards production is lower than other market offers due to own manufacture. The larger lot size reduces the work cost.
