Our labor-only assembly services require nothing from you other than part delivery. After you provide the parts, we take it from there. And when your assemblies are ready, we return any unused parts. It’s completely headache-free and seamless.

Labor-only services are a great option if you already have a contract with an electronics and control panel supplier but need to outsource some of the assembly work. We help keep your prices down by not imposing add-on services you don’t need. Plus, we immediately audit your parts kit against your packing list for quantity shipped, quality, and identification.

To greatly improve the chances all of your assemblies are successful on their first runs, it’s important you follow these six steps before providing us parts: 

1. Make sure your bill of materials (BOM) includes:

  • Your part numbers (and any manufacturer part numbers if handy)
  • Quantities per unit
  • Reference designators
  • Part descriptions
  • Package types
  • Do-not-populate parts

2. Make sure your surface-mount technology (SMT) parts have:

  • Reeled components or continuous cut tape with leaders, if possible
  • At least 20 pieces or 5% extra on passives (resistors/caps), whichever is greater
  • At least five pieces or 2% extra on actives (ICs), whichever is greater
  • One to two extra pieces on larger parts
  • Trays or tube packaging, as required

3. Use original packaging and electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection

4. Identify loose SMT components (requiring hand-placement)

5. Label packaging with the same part numbers indicated on your BOM

6. Indicate reference part substitutions used
