In today’s world where only quality and perfection is what is looked for in every aspect, may it be people or products and services, quality is the key to survival and development. Quality should be maintained at every stage of the production process, may it be purchase, production, management, inspection, or packaging. When speaking about a PCB assembly from India, there are a variety of checks that need to be done to ensure their quality and performance, some of which include –
Once the design is finalized, there should be checks made to verify the layout for any specific placements, routing, or other addressable elements. Every component placement and trace routing integrity should be checked. Any missing components, overlapping components, untraced pins, and incorrect layer placement should be identified and corrected.
Every material used to construct the PCB should be a standard, and of good quality. Only the right materials must be chosen. Only reputed and reliable suppliers must be contacted for receiving products. The BOM should also be thoroughly checked.
There should be quality control at every step of the production process. Getting hold of an error in the middle of production requires lesser efforts and time to be corrected, rather than identifying it after the final product is made, which will also involve wasted money. Every manufacturing process must strictly follow ISO systems in order to comply with the specifications.
Final quality check
Even though every production process is individually checked and inspected for errors, it is important to check the final product as a whole too. The products should be checked according to the IPC and customer standards before being delivered to the clients, to check for performance. Also, follow ups should be taken after making the sale, and any improvement actions, if required, must be taken up immediately. Some of the most important final product checks that must be performed include –
Visual inspection – Using special equipment, a PCB assembly can be visually inspected for every minute solder joint and other tiny defects.
X-ray Inspection – X-rays are used to inspect densely populated or mini-sized PCBs that include thousands of solder connections, where every connection is not visible through visual inspection.
Automated Optical Inspection – Using video camera(s), images of the components on the PCB are clicked from various angles, which are then analyzed by experts to identify defects like scratches, dimensional defects, nodes, stains, incorrect components, and more.
