Secure your Electronics Production in China and Asia
Most of the electronic products manufactured in China are made in Shenzhen.You may know that Electronic product market is complex. Indeed, electronic device life cycle become shorter and shorter due to fast technological advancement, and wearable device such as smartphone, tablet and mobile accessories has to fit with high legal compliance requirement and high quality requirement. For those reasons it is very important for importers to control every step of electronic device production by performing electronic product inspection in China and Asia.
First step : Incoming Material Inspection
As you may have seen in my previous article Useful tips about Electronic Device Inspection in China and Asia, electronic product safety and quality is closely linked to used incoming material reliability. Out of the typical minor and major defects, a big concern is related to materials used by manufacturer to transform materials into parts.
In electronic device manufacture there are a lot of different kind of material used from plastic for casing to metal part, through other electronic component, screens and many more. Sometimes, it happens that manufacturer use recycled plastic or second hand electronic component. For recycled plastic, consequence is quality is not as high as with original plastic. For example, recycled plastic will tolerate stress much less than an original plastic, hence it may break more easily. Second hand component has a shorter life cycle, and will impact your the whole product quality.
For this reason, to verify which quality of raw material are used to manufacture products It is extremely recommend to run an Incoming Material Inspection in China and Asia. It can help you to verify which kind of material is used to manufacture your product, and avoid quality issues due to shoddy raw material.
Second Step : Initial and During Production Inspection
Electronic device manufacturing processes are not always followed by factories, and trust me the results could be disastrous. As electronics are subject to strict rules and certifications to be exported, and have to fit with market expectation regarding the level of quality. Any defective product is automatically withdraw from sale. So now imagine the consequences on thousands of unit. What a waste of time and money. Poor quality products have a very negative impact on brand image, which means that all your marketing efforts and investment can be annihilate.
In order control the smooth functioning of the production process, and prevent defects on your electronic device, I strongly advise you to run an electronics Initial Production Inspection in China and Asia. For more safety, I also advise you to perform During Production Inspection. This inspection performed when at least 50% of the production is over. It allows to avoid nasty surprises and contingency. I highly recommend those quality control services for those who are working with tight timeline and can’t afford whatever delay.
To sum up, don’t wait till it’s too late to control your electronic product manufacturing in China or Asia.
