Startup in progress? 4 Reasons to engage an electronic manufacturing company

The development of a startup, especially one with a physical product, is often difficult and risky if you don't rely on expert partners. In fact, managing engineering and/or design problems that are only visible in the final stages of production or bottlenecks in manufacturing is not easy, generating enormous costs right at the most delicate stage of market launch. Indeed, these types of problems often end up preventing the company from going to market and causing its failure.

For this reason, an Electronics Manufacturing Services company is the key to successfully developing your startup and launching your product on the market. An EMS company offers a complete service, from design to after-market support, thus ensuring valuable support from the early stages of your startup's development.

In this article we have summarized the 4 main reasons why any hardware company, like yours, should engage an EMS partner.

1.Highest quality in production methods and processes

As we mentioned in the introduction, a very delicate phase of your startup is the production of your device. Relying on an experienced electronics manufacturing company, means making sure that this phase is approached with the right experience and suitable processes. A modern electronic manufacturing company, must ensure the most modern and innovative processes of Industry 4.0: automation, because an automated electronic board assembly eliminates inefficiencies and human errors, while maintaining a competitive cost; 3d printing, which ensures rapid prototyping and reduces production time; AI, which through monitoring all stages of the production process ensures tracking and suggests margins for constant improvement.

  • Dedicated 3D printing and Pick & Place service for fast prototype production
  • AI and total monitoring of the production process, from component arrival to finished product assembly for total process tracking and immediate identification of errors or issues (e.g. manufacturer recalling an electronic component used in your product with a recall campaign)
  • Swiss-Made quality, ISO 9001 certification for quality, ISO 13485 for medical equipment manufacturing and AQAP 2110 for military equipment. Our manufacturing is certified for the most challenging industries, so all of the devices we produce, whether they fall into the above categories or not, have electronics guaranteed to perform under the most extreme conditions. 

2.Services for the entire life cycle of your product

A well-respected electronics manufacturing company offers a 360° service for every stage of your product's life cycle. This means they will assist you from the ideation stages, offering support on the design, engineering, patenting of your product. When selecting an EMS partner for your startup make sure they offer:

A high-quality EMS will have capabilities and resources to support you in all or some of these above phases, depending on the status of your product. In addition, they will provide you with advice and support if they identify any issues in the phases you have already addressed or will need to address.
