The term "turnkey" generally refers to any product or service that is sold to the buyer in a form that is ready for immediate use. When applied to PCB assembly, turnkey means that the supplier handles all aspects of PCB solutions, including components procuring and PCB manufacturing, picking and placing components on specific locations on your custom PCBs. In essence, full turnkey PCB assembly gives the buyer greater freedom to focus on PCB design, while the supplier takes care of the rest, which is why it is a leading form of one-stop electronic assembly
As one of few quality-focused PCB manufacturers that include electronic assembly services, PCBHERO has more than 10 years of experience in providing fast, reliable turnkey PCB assembly services for more than 10,000 companies from over 80 countries around the world. Our single-source approach saves you time and money, while also ensuring more reliable, consistent results than when dealing with several suppliers.
Additionally, our professional team can skillfully manage your entire project from concept to delivery, and make the entire electronic assembly process as smooth and seamless as possible.
Advantages of Full Turnkey PCB Assembly Services
• Shorter Lead Time
As a fundamental form of electronic assembly, PCB assembly primarily contains three phases: PCB fabrication, components procurement and PCB assembly. Traditionally, you should quote and confirm design files with sales and engineers working for your PCB manufacturer, then components distributors and finally PCB assemblers. Such series of quotations and confirmations just need your time spent in contacting with different partners. If those partners are from different countries, you have to overcome some problems such as time zone, communication habits etc. Full-turnkey PCB assembly, however, is a highly-efficient form of electronic assembly. As soon as full-turnkey PCB assembly is determined, an overall assembly quotation and indispensible issues prohibiting smooth manufacturing will be raised so that three times of communication have been cut to one time with electronic assembly efficiency dramatically improved.
• Lower Cost
Another advantage of full-turnkey PCB assembly service is overall cost reduction. Pack-up service is usually cheaper than separate ones as far as electronic assembly is concerned. At least, freight fee will be saved because you don't need to get manufactured PCB boards and electronic components delivered to assembly workshop. Moreover, components procurement may get easy and customer-friendly because experienced electronic assemblers are usually able to provide reliable components with relatively low cost based on their long-term cooperation with parts manufacturers or distributors.
• Transparent Monitoring
When it comes to electronic assembly process, it's significant yet difficult to monitor your products' manufacturing stage as it is totally related with your products' performance and time to market. Full-turnkey PCB assembly allows engineers at each stage to be aware of what they've accomplished and to better understand their status for better performance of final products.
Who can Benefit Most from Our Turnkey PCB Assembly Services?
Now that full turnkey PCB assembly allows PCB designers to make better use of their time to focus more on PCB design, it works perfectly on companies striving for frequent upgrading and refreshing of products. They need to dig into deeper market by providing multiple creative electronic products and they strongly call for a steady and smooth electronic assembly process.
Turnkey printed circuit board assembly is also an ideal electronic assembly solution for small businesses or startup companies that want to bring smaller quantities of assembled PCBs to market without having to invest in or carry an extensive inventory. It also offers a more cost-effective, efficient means of assembling and testing PCB prototypes for new products. In addition, quick-turn PCB assembly service makes sense for any company that needs to receive their circuit boards with the shortest possible lead time.
