How can you ensure your customer a QTA (Quick Turn Around)
18th September ,2022
PCB Technologies Ltd. is an All-in-One solution provider for the fabrication of high reliability, multi-layer, complex boards. Our worldwide manufacturing capacity serves increasingly demanding industries, including defense, aerospace, healthcare, telecom, and more. A can-do attitude and a heterogeneous engineering approach are how we operate. This makes manufacturers’ reliance on multi-vendor operations redundant.
When it comes to QTA projects of prototype or low/mid volumes production, we stick with parallel (as opposed to linear) workflow. Our engineering teams release in a matter of hours stack up instructions to the production teams, the minute this phase of the PCB design is finalized. At the same time, while production is in progress, the engineers can attend to pressing, milling, drilling and other fabrication processes to ensure a quick and high-spec planned board design. A single laminated rigid board of 2-20 layers, at small-mid volume quantity, for example, can be delivered within 3-5 working days instead of 15-20 working days. The added value we provide is delivering QTA projects of the most complex PCBs, i.e., rigid, flex, rigid-flex, HDI, radio-frequency/Microwave, to name a few; all based on mixed materials characterized by low CTE, high conductivity, and enabling high reliability, high-speed systems.
We make sure each customer requiring a QTA delivery gets the exclusive attention of our department and shift managers, as well as our customer services staff, prioritizing their project every step of the way. Progress made on the fabrication process is reflected to the customer and issues requiring speedy resolution are handled with the utmost urgency. This is also backed by packaging and shipping services – we can deliver any final product to any place on the globe within 24 hours. Rapidly designed and manufactured PCB is not the only factor we take into account – we always make sure our products are compatible with the harshest quality standards and are highly reliable in relevance to the industry we serve.
Our 4 decade-experience in PCB manufacturing relies, among other things, on a wide supplier network. Each and every one of our suppliers was thoroughly reviewed by our technical experts to make sure they can withstand the technological challenges posed by our customers’ requirements. In any case – PCB Technologies is the one responsible for these turn-key projects.
Another key factor in QTA delivery is production capacity. PCB Technologies has been gearing up with state-of-the-art, automated machinery, i.e., SES, DES, pressing, post-punch, laser-drilling and others to maintain a smooth, quick and accurate production process. Also, daily communications with our customers and on-the-go production reports allow them the benefit of transparent management of the whole process.
This All-in-One holistic approach is also implemented in our computerized DMR (Discrepancy Material Report) system. Any team member can call the line to a halt if noticing a production portion deviation while adding visual proof of the faulty output. Team leaders, technological managers, or technical supervisors are then able to share their recommendations based on vivid facts.
All personnel can then take part in the error analysis and in so doing create actual value for the customer – on-the-move constant improvement. This never-ending process often results in new “production rules” being followed in similar cases in the future.
