Top Reasons for Investing in New Equipment

Reading time ( words)

In the upcoming issues of our magazines here at I-Connect007, we will look into the key considerations when it comes to investing in new equipment, tools, and technology, for your PCB fabrication and assembly processes.

In our recent survey, one of the questions we asked was the key reasons for investment in new equipment. A majority of respondents said they consider increasing capacity and improving their existing manufacturing capability as top reasons for investing in new equipment for their production lines. Others cited the need to add a new capability and replace existing equipment, along with reducing handling and improving quality.

To learn more, look out for the January 2018 issues of PCB007 Magazine and SMT007 Magazine.

Even though you have trusted supplier partners, working closely with them will ensure seamless manufacture and high-quality output. In our recent survey, most of our respondents agree, with more than a third or 40% closely working with at least 50% of their customers.
