The Importance Of PCB Inspection Process
PCB inspection is a critical part of the PCB production process. It helps detect defects that can cause the PCB to fail completely or to operate inconsistently. The inspection process ensures the PCB is manufactured to the highest standards and functions as intended. Defects detected early help avoid product recalls. A PCB may have design flaws that go unnoticed during the designing phase. The board is checked at each step of the production process to rule out defects. It helps avoid further wastage of parts, time and money.
A PCB may have one or multiple defects. Only a comprehensive inspection process can help detect the defects present in the board. Faulty boards can cause the end products to fail or not operate as expected. Dissatisfied customers can file the warranty claim or demand a refund. It results in loss of trust in the brand and the company. The reputation of the company suffers and it can miss future sales opportunities. These problems can be avoided by placing the PCBs through extensive and rigorous inspection process.
