The function of standard tooling of PCB manufacturing process
If you place a single layer or double layer PCB board, the tooling also very simple.
But to 8 layer PCB manufacturing process, there were more complex tooling used.
That’s why we should consider the tooling use during 8 layer PCB quote.
Standard tooling applies, Boards supplied as single units, Requests to be placed in a panel (Arrays) are available (IE: Production ready tooling) Very small boards will be supplied in small V-Grooved panels.
How to calculate the lead-time of 8 layer PCB quote?
Due to multilayer PCB board have complex construction and manufacturing process, if you want to place a 8 layer PCB quote you should learn it’s lead-time.
Most of PCB manufacturers have it’s own calculated led time.
Here Angel wants to show an example of how to calculate the lead-time of 8 layer PCB quote.
After confirmation of the files (Gerbers) if the order is received after 10:30Am EST time, The first day of the order is not included in the overall lead time.
