Aluminum is the most common metal used for metal PCBs. Standard PCBs are non-metal PCBs, which means they are made of materials such as FR4, fiberglass, ceramic, polymer, and so on. To induce conduction, these PCBs have layers of copper, silkscreen, or a soldered mask. These PCBs may be single- or double-sided depending upon the application requirement.
EuropePCB is a standard PCB manufacturer that offers end-to-end solutions from ideation and design to assembling, installation, and maintenance. We have experience since 2006 in PCB fabrication and have handled thousands of PCB projects so far. EuropePCB uses all kinds of substrate materials including FR4, aluminum, and Rogers. We typically use FR4 for all our standard PCBs.
We have been constantly meeting compressed deadlines and time-to-market schedules, which has helped us achieve the distinction of being one of the leading standard PCB manufacturers in China. When you are ready to transition a design from the prototype phase to the production phase, our standard PCBs could be the solution.
What is PCB Assembly?
After designing and printing circuit boards, they must be connected so that electrical messages can be properly transmitted between them. Coupling is what makes an electrical appliance work. Electronic devices are an important part of our daily lives. Everything from our smartphones to our cars including electronic components. At the heart of these electrical devices is a printed circuit board, also known as a PCB. Many people see printed circuit boards when they see them. These are small green chips that are lined with strips and pieces of copper that you will find in the heart of milling machines. Made of fiberglass, copper strips, and other metal parts, these boards are bonded with epoxy and coated with a solder mask. This solder mask is where that green color comes from. The PCB assembly process is simple, involving a few automatic and manual steps. With each step of the process, the board maker has both handmade and default options to choose from.
Current PCB assembly status:
European and American customers find PCB assembly difficult.
First, high cost and long delivery times are always an issue when prototyping PCBs for European and American customers. This is because a limited number of local PCB manufacturers are struggling to keep up with market demand, and few manufacturers can provide comprehensive PCB assembly services. If the customer assembles the PCB in their own country, it can cost much more and take more time.
Also, it is difficult to assemble a PCB abroad due to language and cultural differences. For example, many foreign trading companies can provide PCB assembly services. However, there are not many people who can speak a foreign language and PCB manufacturing technology at the same time. So, finding the right PCB manufacturer is not an easy task.
Turnkey PCB assembly services have become a major trend in China. To meet increasing demand and improve market competition, many PCB assembly manufacturers provide turnkey services to domestic and international customers. For example, EuropePCB is a professional PCB manufacturer that can provide full services of PCB manufacturing, component sourcing, PCB assembly, and PCB testing for European and American customers. Turnkey Services reduces the time customers spend contacting multiple suppliers for specific steps in PCB assembly.
And our scientific ordering system allows our customers to get higher quality and lower cost PCB assembly products in less time than traditional PCB assembly. Our turnkey service allows you to create a PCB prototype in 12 hours and assemble a PCB prototype in 24-7 hours even with minimum quantity requirements. Of course, PCB fabrication, component sourcing, and PCB assembly services can be selected separately or in combination with each other.
What is PCB process capability?
The PCB Prototype Manufacturing Process is the process of processing PCB materials. All PCB manufacturing processes are affected by the processing capability and processing tolerances of the PCB equipment. Each PCB manufacturer's control system and the capabilities of the production staff also affect the quality of the finished PCB. It summarizes PCB materials, PCB hardware capabilities and processing tolerances, management and personnel quality of PCB manufacturers, and PCB processing capabilities. So, choose a qualified PCB manufacturer. This has to do with the quality of the product and whether the product can be successfully produced and dominate the market.

Comprehensive Quality Assurance
There is no shortcut for quality, and our goal just is to make well every printed circuit board. We have imported the advanced machinery from the US, Japan, Germany, and Israel to improve our production and technical ability. We have set a great example in the PCB field of flying probe testing, buried and blind via and special controlled impedance. Finished PCB Assemblies are checked for proper component placement and functionality with a variety of methods including AOI Inspection, In-Circuit Testing, and X-Ray inspection. We have a highly developed R&D division that has helped our factory successfully produce mechanical micro via, high-density impedance, and HDI.
ICT and Functional PCBA Testing
EuropePCb is highly process-focused with adherence to J-STD-001 standards. All PCB assemblies are verified for part-placement accuracy; the use of critical checks such as signal integrity, functionality, and performance to test specifications are fully incorporated into our printed circuit board assembly testing procedures. Comprehensive PCBA testing capabilities include functional circuits assembly testing equipment and in-circuit testing (ICT).
PCBA Testing With Multi-step Verification
To ensure the highest quality, EuropePCB provides functional testing and in-circuit testing (ICT) services. Our test technicians and quality engineers are highly skilled, well-trained and will assemble and inspect to IPC-610 and J-STD-001 standards. Our manufacturing facilities and printed circuit board assembly processes have been audited and certified to these standards.
Once a PCBA is fitted with all necessary components and passed through the SMT assembly line, it is verified for compliance with customer CAD data using an inline AOI machine. Boards with bottom terminated components will go through x-ray inspection to ensure part-placement accuracy. Each assembly may then be subjected to in-circuit testing and/or functionally tested to customer specifications by a dedicated staff of test technicians.
The functional test stands used in the above process can be as simple as a set of electronic measuring devices on a workbench or as complex as a six-foot, rack-mounted, integrated testing system. While many customers choose to provide functional test equipment, Europe PCB engineering staff has full capabilities to design and build customized functional testing systems.
