Partnering with an Electronics Manufacturing Service Can Save You Time and Money

Outsourcing has become the way of life for original equipment manufacturers. A third-party electronics manufacturing services partner (EMS) handles assembly of circuit boards and other electronic devices leaving you to focus on the big picture of your project. A manufacturing partner can streamline your production process and dramatically cut costs. Here are some examples of how you can save time and money with an electronics manufacturing services partner:

Electronics Manufacturing Services for the Food Industry

Quality and safety are of the utmost importance to the food manufacturing industry. Failure of process standards for contamination control could result in sickness for hundreds or thousands of people or even lead to someone's death. Needless to say, there are strict standards in place. And you should expect the same when it comes to electronics manufacturing services.

Finding the Right ECM for Your Digital Food Testing Device

Food-borne illness is a serious matter. Maintaining cleanliness, sanitization, and contamination control in a food processing plant is challenging even under perfect conditions. According to the CDC, food-borne illnesses and infections are a big public health problem in the United States. However, changes in food testing to detect harmful bacteria can curb that. Unfortunately, the modern way of testing isn't so modern. That is why more and more companies are turning to digital solutions, and allowing technology to lend a hand in food quality control and inspections.

Electronics Troubleshooting Hacks With On-Site Engineers

In the world of Murphy’s Law, if it can go wrong, it will. If your mechanical assembly needs an electronic assembly inside, you really want an electronic contract manufacturer with engineering on staff to help with your electronics troubleshooting. On-site engineering means someone is ready to tackle your PCB repair challenge at a moment's notice. But, it goes beyond that. When your ECM has engineers standing by, there will be solutions to issues you didn't even realize could pose a problem.

Finding The Best PCB Design Services Partner

In-house engineering is paramount for PCB design services. They need to have an eye on your design but are also looking at it from a production standpoint. Is it manufacturable? Can they make small adjustments to the design, but not function, to assist with manufacturability? Look for a design services partner that also has assembly and manufacturing on-site. Here are some things to look for:

Getting the Most Out of Box Build Assembly

It is common for electronic manufacturers to partner with multiple ECMs for a project. One may handle design, another for the printed circuit, and yet another ECM for the final assembly. However, sometimes it makes sense to keep your product all in one place from perfecting your design all the way through to a product being placed in the hands of a consumer. In some cases, a box build assembly can be the perfect solution for a company up against a deadline. A box build could increase quality, reliability, performance, productivity, and manufacturability by keeping a few key features in mind.
