What is Low Volume PCB Assembly

Low volume PCB assembly usually needs a very small number of PCBs.It actually uses 25 to 1000 PCB boards which requires soldering parts on.It is very beneficial for prototypes or the large size of productions.

Basically,the main procedure of PCB assembly does not change.Moreover,the main purpose of using small number of PCBs is to verify that whether these PCB boards fulfil all the requirements of customers.So using small volume takes less time to get assurance about the final functionality of products.

In several conditions,manufacturers need only small number of PCB boards for some applications.

Hence,this PCB assembly of low volume is only the solution of such situations.They have ability to reduce the extra costs with perfect quality.Manufacturers claim that the process of Low volume PCB assembly takes a very short time and needs less PCB boards.

So,they call it low volume and make use of it to test the functioning of their products. Moreover,they also make use of it in small-scale manufacturing for its low cost.Its process and technique are similar to high or normal volume assembly.While its volume of work is very small and hence its turnaround is also very rapid and quicker.

Furthermore, the main goal of this assembly is to optimize the quality of final board and solving all the issues which may occur.So Low volume PCB assembly actually uses two techniques.These two techniques are:

  1. DFM
  2. DFT

Hence,with the help of these two techniques you can simply trace any problem or issue. In this way,you can easily optimize all the main issues before working on the final or mass production.  

Which Kind of PCBs are Used in Low Volume PCB Assembly

Generally,there is no difference between bulk production or low volume PCB boards.The process is same but you can test the final design by low volume techniques easily.

The three most important kinds of PCBs which are used in this low volume assembly are:

In fact,rigid boards are extremely popular and essential.But modern electronic devices always need a specific amount of flexibility.So customers always prefer to use flexible and flex-rigid PCBs for low volume PCB assembly.Because several electronic industries design rigid-flex boards with some special plans and policies.

Three Major Technologies Used in Low Volume PCB Assembly

Basically,electronic manufacturers use three different kinds of technologies during low volume PCB assembly procedure.

  1. Surface mount technology
  2. Through-hole mounting
  3. Mixed technology

1,Surface Mount Technology:

In this technology,manufacturers put all the components direct on the surface of the board.It is very effective technology because it has the ability to improve the quality and production.Moreover,it has proven as a primary technology for several decades.

2,Through-hole Mounting:

In this method,electronic manufacturers use to put all components on the boards via drilled holes.They drill these holes on the board. In this method electronic manufacturers put all components in the holes.Manufacturers drill these holes for components on the board.

Moreover,it is a very old and ancient technique and it was very famous by then. But this technique is not famous nowadays and manufacturers do not make use of this ancient technology.

3,Mixed technology:

In several conditions it is a very wise choice to use both of the above techniques.Because both technologies are very beneficial for low volume PCB assembly.Basically,manufacturers start processing using SMT technique but later they start using through-hole mounting without any hesitation.but they generally use through-hole mounting technique when it is necessary in the low volume assembly.

Low Volume PCB Assembly Lead Time

Generally,the manufacturing of low volume assembly can be different in certain conditions.It mostly depends on the number of PCBs which manufacturers have used in the assembly.

Furthermore,it usually takes 1 to 5 days to complete the production.While for the precision solutions and ideal performance of PCBs,the lead time may be from 10 to 16 days.

What Benefits does Low Volume PCB Assembly Provide?

In fact,we have already described that low volume assembly is very efficient in many ways.They are very beneficial when it comes to cost.When you are working on a project and want to test its functionality.You can easily test it with the help of this assembly.Because you have to use only a small number of PCBs.

So you will pay a less amount for testing the performance of your project,there is no need to pay amount for those PCBs which you do not use during the procedure.

There are Many More Benefits of Low Volume PCB Assembly:

1,Assemblies of Small Quantities

As it is clear from the name,these are small volume assemblies with small number of PCBs.This quantity normally starts from 25- 1000.In addition, this quantity may be increase up to 5000 PCBs.

Basically,low volume PCB assembly is an ideal choice for constructing new products.By using this technique, you can easily get the issues which you can face after the final production. So it is a perfect choice for new products.

2,Benefits of Price

It is a cost-effective assembly.If you will get service from good providers,they can facilitate you in following ways:

  • With the help of waving stencil, they can save extra charges
  • They reduce NRE costs even on your repeat orders.

Moreover,they will guide you to purchase from Satisfactory distributers so that you will easily pay lower prices.So,all this will lead you to a very low cost even for your mass productions.

3,The Design Changing Low Volume Printed Circuit Boards

This low volume of assembly actually facilitates the consumers to final their product designs.Furthermore,they also can take final decision that if they want to go for their long production with same design.Hence,low volume assembly of PCB actually gives you to change the design according to your needs.
