Flexible PCB can Reduce assembly costs
The assembly’s ability of flexible PCB discusses
In this paper, we are going to discuss flexible PCB assembly cost.
This is not simple, flexible PCB assembly cost not only related to components cost.
Because you should consider many other factors, like the assembly’s ability of flexible PCB.
To some people, flexible PCB can easy assembly due to have a good work flow.
But others disagree, because flexible PCBs are so flexible that hard to assembly.
Test step effect to flexible PCB assembly cost
You know all rigid PCB tests are after it’s assembly all components.
Sometime you should assembly many times to get the right test step.
But if you use flexible PCB assembly, this issue did not appear.
Because flexible PCB can be tested prior to assembly of components.
If have any issues can be solved very easily.
That’s the reason why flexible PCB assembly cost less than rigid PCB‘s.
Flexible PCB has less solder joints
You may confuse that solder joints can not affect assembly.
If you calculate all factors related to flexible PCB assembly process.
You will find solder joints are less than most PCB boards, special rigid PCB board.
Our 4MCPB assembly experts told Emma that rigid PCB solder joint cost can two times than flexible PCB assembly.
Due to have good flexible performance, elimination of connectors and solder joints reduce costs.
