Hi,

do you know any company who provides Design for Assmbly analysis of PCBA assembled in the housing (with other components like gears, radiators, screws etc.)? By DFA I mean analysis from the mechanical side, in range of dimensions, tolerances, mechanical moveable connections to obtain best fitting and reduce scrap level.

Could you recomend someone with experience in that kind of analysis? It does not have to be a company specialized only in EMS.

Thanks for help in advise!

Hi,

I think you can do a search using google. Also, I know that you can find local and global EMS such as Flex that can provide you a service like you want.

Hi Alexi,

thanks for your answer. That was the first step I took, before I have written my question here.

Despite appearances, not many companies offer DFA as a separate service.I have already found few, but still looking for other source of knowlage. Beside, like I said, I am looking for recomended servieces.

Kind Regards, Milena

Hi,

I think Flex do this on the best side [I saw they work and it was fantastic] but I can't recommend you exactly because I don't where you are from. Sorry.

Best Regards, Alexei

Most PCB Assembly Houses offers free wide-range DFA before the production run to ensure the design is capable for manufacturing. Actually, for pcb designers, it's recommended to be aware of the concepts of Design for Manufacture and Assembly of PCBs and general rules they conform to. You may check out this article for more details: https://www.pcbcart.com/article/content/PCB-design-for-manufacture-and-assembly.html

BTW, PCBCart offers free Design for Manufacture and Design for Assembly check of all production run orders before production, and they give 100% guarantee on the quality of final circuit boards. In case you need an alternative PCB supplier, PCBCart may be a good option.

This is interesting Alexei. So Flex is able to check my complete project before I decide to start manufacturing process, and advice me what should I change to minimize quality and assembly issues? I'm really interested in finding such service. Do they use specific software to calculate all tolerances, dimensions or it is performed based on experience? I'm looking for offer in Europe, I don't know where Milena is located. Do you know whether Flex in Europe or any other company is offering this kinda of analyze, and how expenesive it is? best regards, Grimus

Hi, They do this service and it can save you money in production. I can't tell where you can do this in Europe but you can contact them and ask for the service. By the way, they has this service in Israel but I think it is global and may be done on another sites. Best Regards, Alexei

We are using Valor MSS for DFM and DFT. Very powerful tool especially if you have also VPL (Valor Parts Library) access/subscription.

How much is a license for NPI and Parts library? Mentor has a reputation for being gold-plated.
