Many customers will refer to the pcba processing cost quotation given by the previous partner manufacturers for the quotation given by the PCBA processing manufacturer, or compare the current average price in the Pcba processing industry.


So, Which PCBA processing cost is higher?

Let IPCB share with you today: To know which PCBA processing cost is higher, we need to decompose the entire PCBA processing link. PCBA processing includes circuit board light board and component welding (ie smt surface mount + DIP) After the plug-in welding) these two parts.


The prices of PCB board and components on the market are basically open and transparent, and can be compared for reference. In addition to PCB boards and components, the cost is reflected in PCBA processing. The main PCBA cost expenditures for PCBA processing are in the following four aspects.

1. Auxiliary materials: solder paste, tin strips, flux, UV glue, and furnace fixtures; solder paste and tin strips are the most important auxiliary materials in the entire processing link. The price of imported solder paste on the same soldering area It is much higher, but the quality of welding is very different.


2. SMT patch processing: The price of patch processing will vary according to the number of points and packaging. Large quantity and excellent price are the consensus in the industry; the larger the component package size, the easier it is to mount, and the corresponding quality defect rate will decrease, so there is more room for communication on the price.


3. Welding labor hours after DIP plug-in: Because it involves special-shaped parts and material forming, this link requires a lot of manual participation, and this link is the most difficult link to control the cost. At present, labor costs remain high, and the cost of this link is generally high.


4. Assembly test: test fixture, test equipment, test man-hours. The price of the test fixture varies according to the difficulty of the test, and sometimes requires the assistance of test equipment such as optical fiber and ICT. The corresponding labor and equipment loss must be taken into account, but the test price will not be very high; some companies even test for free.


Through the above analysis, the most uncontrollable cost among the four major links is the welding man-hour fee after the DIP plug-in. Do you know Which PCBA processing cost is higher?
