Consigned PCB Assembly
Consigned PCB Assembly is a win-win solution with parts supplied by the customer and manufacturer’s expertise!
While many clients prefer to go the turnkey assembly route where component sourcing, manufacturing and assembly is the responsibility of the Contract Manufacturer, Consigned PCB Assembly is growing as a popular option. It essentially involves the customer supplying all the parts and components required for the circuit boards, while the fabrication and assembly is seamlessly handled.
In addition, there can also be a hybrid solution with a partial consigned PCB Assembly, where the customer supplies some parts and the contract manufacturer supplies the rest. You may want to provide some special components while wanting the contract manufacturer to take care of the rest. Whether you opt for fully consigned PCB Assembly or a partial one, the contract manufacturer will be responsible for the quality of PCBA.
At Technotronix, we are fully equipped to offer both full Turnkey as well as full consigned and partial consigned printed circuit board assembly. In each case we offer custom PCB Assembly to meet your stringent requirements.
Benefits of Consigned Printed Circuit Board Assembly
Consigned PCB Assembly works best where customers already have their own components or if they manufacture proprietary products. Conversely, if you have a large backlog of components, Consigned Printed Circuit Board Assembly is beneficial.
Essentially consigned assembly helps customers to redistribute the work while keeping their own manufacturing facility. It is also preferred when the customer manufactures expensive products with parts that are exclusive. In such cases the customer also reaps the advantage that the product isn’t replicated and also retains a significant cost advantage.
Also, in this approach the customer has full control over material as also packaging and shipping of material before it is handed over for final assembly. In such cases they benefit from a contract manufacturer that works closely with their in-house supply chain. This helps both quick PCB Assembly as well as quick time to market.
Some of the other benefits of Consigned PCB Assembly include:
- Stringent control on quality
- Reduced manufacturing cost
- Reduced turnover times
Application of Consigned PCB Assembly
Consigned Assembly finds extensive application in cases where:
- The customer already has access to components.
- The parts manufactured by the customer are proprietary and/or expensive.
- It ensures that there is more customer control in terms of the correct material and to see that everything is in order before it is passed on for manufacturing.
- This works as an added security step especially for applications which are complex in terms of assembly.
