Consignment quotes require documentation including a current revision Bill of Materials (BOM) and Assembly Drawings. This documentation can be forwarded to your EXPERT Field Sales Account Manager electronically in order to generate a customer assembly quote. An assembly quote is calculated based on types of components on the board, number of placements, component placement complexity, turnaround time required and other special instructions requiring other work related to the assembly process.
If the assembly job is awarded to EXPERT, Gerber Data is required (to generate the stencil), and CAD/DATA files are required to program the surface-mount pick and place machine.
Turnkey quotes require the customer to provide all of the above documentation, including an Approved Vendor Listing (AVL). The AVL is a document that lists all component vendors that have been approved by the customer for a particular assembly. Turnkey quotes can be processed in as little as 5 days.
EXPERT offers extremely fast turnaround on PCB Fab. With EXPERT facilitating both the fab and assembly your job goes onto the floor immediately upon receiving PCB Fab. EXPERT can deliver turnkey assemblies in as little as 5 days after receipt of order.
