Quick-Turn PCB Assembly Process

Circuit Boards Assembled Quickly with VSE’s Commitment to Quality

VSE icons-12

In manufacturing, two requirements often seem opposed: speed and quality. Assembly shops today must be agile to remain competitive and respond to market demands quickly. However, in printed circuit board manufacturing, quality is essential to build a product that will work as designed.

To satisfy both speed and quality requires a local circuit board manufacturer skilled and experienced in the business of quick-turn PCB assembly. Here at VSE, we’ve provided high-quality circuit boards to our customers for over 30 years. Here we’ll detail our quick turn PCB assembly process to introduce you to our services.

Superior PCB Assembly for Your Quick-Turn Needs

At VSE, we have been working with electronics innovators like you for a long time, and we understand the challenges and the pressures. We know that you need quick turn printed circuit board assembly for several reasons, including:

  • Quick response to changes in product forecasts
  • OEMs that expect agility and instantaneous product availability
  • Rapid prototyping of new product development
  • New product introduction that is scalable to eventual full production

To supply your PCB quick-turn assembly needs, we have refined our manufacturing processes to give you the fastest assembly time possible. We do this with a combination of state-of-the-art production equipment and our highly trained technical staff. These services ensure quick turn PCB assembly while still maintaining the high level of quality you expect. As an example, here are some of the refinements we’ve focused on in the component procurement phase of our manufacturing process.

PCB Component Recommendations for Quick-Turn Assembly

Component procurement is the one area of quick-turn circuit board assembly that can cause the most significant damage in time and expense if not managed correctly. Without professional oversight, component prices can be too high, delivery schedules too late, or they may be entirely unavailable. However, the component procurement team at VSE is refined to provide the best service in the industry. Here is how we ensure that the parts you need are ready for assembly when your board enters production:

  • Direct communication: With the relationship that we will build with your engineers, we will resolve any design questions quickly to keep the procurement process moving smoothly.
  • Staff: We employ the finest procurement specialist and component engineers to find the part solutions your circuit board build requires.
  • Network: Our procurement team has a vast network of component manufacturers, distributors, and brokers that they work with to source your parts or the equivalent form, fit, and function replacements.
  • Advanced sourcing: By getting your parts list while still finalizing the design, our team will procure the necessary parts to be ready for immediate production.
  • Open AVL: By developing an approved vendor list with you before production, our procurement team will have greater flexibility in choosing suppliers—reducing lead times.

With the parts in place, our manufacturing teams will assemble your circuit board quickly and at the same quality that we give all our production services.

Quick-Turn PCB Assembly at the Highest Levels of Quality

At VSE, we specialize in the high-mix, low-volume production of printed circuit boards. This ability to rapidly shift between building the different PCB technologies of our customers also enables us to manufacture circuit boards quickly. Our quality control measures are designed for our staff to monitor each project closely and spot and correct production issues before they become a problem. These measures include frequent inspection points throughout assembly to ensure that manufacturing is progressing without any errors. At any point, our technicians can interact with the production process for changes, corrections, or process validation.

We’ve fine-tuned our manufacturing processes for the quick turn production environment from component procurement to final inspection and test. We carefully track materials and components from incoming inspection throughout the assembly process. This vigilance ensures that each board is built with the correct parts to eliminate potential rework and changes. Our engineering department will also review each design for manufacturability before production starts to ensure that it can be built without error.
