3 Things to Expect and 2 Things to Reject
With hundreds of companies wanting to help assemble your pcb projects, it's hard knowing who to trust. Use this list to help determine if you are getting the best pcb assembly service.
3 Things to Always Expect
1. Ability to check designs for errors prior to assembly.
Advanced Assembly is one of the few companies that run a free design check on every project. Using actual manufacturing data, we create a digital image of your assembled board to review for errors, which helps avoid project delays and costly mistakes.
Assemble Electronically First.
2. Use of machine-assembly on ALL orders.
Did you know that most assembly shops hand-assemble prototypes? At Advanced Assembly we provide production-quality pcb assembly using a patented system that allows for machine assembly of any size order.
3. Full turn-key service using parts/boards from industry leaders.
It takes an average of 15 hours to find and order all the parts required for a typical pcb assembly order. Instead, we can order your pcb's and all components from leading suppliers such as Digi-Key, Mouser, and Arrow. Then we manage the inventory, perform quick-turn pcb assembly and ship on-time.

2 Things to Never Accept
1. Parts Required on Reels.
Why should you have to buy a reel of parts when your project requires just a handful? At Advanced Assembly we accept reels, cut-tape and even loose/bulk parts, so you can buy just what you need.
2. Assembly that takes longer than 5 days.
Time is money and engineers can’t wait weeks for CEMS to fit small pcb assembly runs into their schedule. Advanced Assembly specializes in quick-turns with a standard turn time of 5 days or less. Our processes are 87% faster than industry average.
