How Much Does Printed Circuit Assembly Cost?
Usually printed cuircuit use in different product, they are design different, and they may be made by different material and applied different electronic compenont, so their price can be far different. Printed circuit assembly cost can be affected by below factors:
- PCB material – the PCB used to assembly the board in different material, cost is different.
- Components- the component types and the component quantity used in the Printed circuit assembling, if different, price can be different.
- Labor cost- the different country labor cost is different, developed countries labor cost usually is more expensive than developing countries. So select printed circuit assembly service in developing countries, usually can save a lot of cost.
- Size-different size of printed circuit board consume material volume is different, cost would be different.
- Lead time- if your lead time for the printed circuit board assembly project is urgent, the cost would be expensive, no matter which manufacturer you select.
- Assembly methods- there are there common methods, SMT assembly, Through hole assembly and Mixed Assembly, different assembly method used in assembly your printed circuit, cost different.
So it is hard to tell you the exactly cost of your printed circuit assembly cost, before analysis your printed circuit board assembly design information. If you want to take an exact cost for reference. You can contact us and provide your BOM list to us, we can quote back you immediately.
Some information about Printed Circuit Assembly:
While there is no definite formula for PCA cost, there are some fundamental decisions that will determine the overall process. The earlier these decisions are made, the more affordable your final product will be. Then, the printed circuit assembly (PCA) process will be.
The final cost of your PCA depends on the type of system you are creating. If you are planning to use a custom PCA process, you will need to consider several factors.
The most obvious benefit of using a printed circuit assembly is speed and cost efficiency. This process is much faster and cheaper than other methods of wire-wrapping and point-to-point construction. Moreover, it eliminates the need for operator-made wiring mistakes.
The advantages of printed circuit board manufacturing are many. Unlike other methods, PCB manufacturing can be automated. Printed circuit assembly is also a lot easier and faster than any other method.
When it comes to PCB assembly, the footprint of the components must match the land pattern specified in the component’s datasheet. If it does not, the components will receive uneven heat during the soldering process, or they may stick to only one side of the PCB.
This is especially true for passive SMD components, as different tracks can affect their performance. Further, different track widths can result in the emergence of short circuits.
PCAs are often referred to by several different names. Some people call them PCBA, PCA, or PWA. Another common abbreviation for PCB assembly is circuit card assembly. While both terms are used interchangeably, there are some differences. PCA is sometimes abbreviated as PWA. The term PWA is an archaic term for PCB assembly. Another abbreviation for PCA is CCA, and it is the same thing.
The term PCB may be confusing and has become a muddled term. Informally, it is commonly referred to as PCBA or printed wiring board. PCB assembly has become more popular as a more technical term, although many people refer to the term PCB as the more general term for the finished circuit board. However, the IPC’s preferred term for an assembled board is circuit card assembly. Other informal terms include backplane assembly and circuit card assembly.
When it comes to SMT and THT components, there are two primary methods. One method involves manual placement. In manual placement, solder paste is applied by hand, and the other involves an automated pick and place robot. Manual soldering is the traditional method, while wave soldering involves molten solder on one side of the PCB. When you use a PTH component, solder paste may not be able to transfer the signal correctly.
