Secondly, need to confirm whether all of the equipment capabilities could meet the requirements of the PCBA specifications, such as the minimum assembly package, the maximum PCB array dimension, ect. And then confirm if the factory was ISO9001 certified and if their acceptance standard are following IPC-A-610F. If they have complete quality manual and SOP to instruct the production work of employees. The more related production record documentation means there are more production quality management method, you could examine their professionalism according to these production records.

Quality and Price

No matter what the size of your company is, when you find pcba supplier, price and quality will definitely be considered.PCB assembly cost is relatively transparent, different factory has different price, but not lower the better, you should be alert if a manufacturer quoted you a very low price. Nevertheless, there are still many customers who regard price as the first reference factor when choosing a manufacturer. This leads to some low-level errors on their boards, which will help improve your PCBA failure analysis ability, hahahaha, this is a joke.In any case, Purchasing electronic components from official and original manufacturers must be the best option, they implement strict quality control, and of course the cost will be higher.
