Several factors affecting the quotation of PCB proofing

As a professional PCB board manufacturer, Dongguan Huaqiang Fast Circuit Board Co., Ltd. focuses on the research and development of high-precision multi-layer and special boards, as well as the production and manufacture of PCB proofing and small and medium batch boards (PCB proofing, PCB proofing, PCB board, PCB production). The products include blind buried hole circuit board, impedance. Circuit boards, high-frequency circuit boards, etc., then how to calculate the price of proofing circuit boards?
Price for PCB proofing
 Over the years, PCB proofing quotation has become familiar to people both inside and outside the industry. Even some people who have many years of experience in PCB industry are not necessarily fully aware of the origin and development of PCB proofing quotation. Here is an analysis of the main factors affecting PCB proofing quotation:

 Price diversity due to different materials used in PCB

Take the common double panel as an example, there are fr-4, CEM-3 and so on. The thickness of the plate varies from 0.2mm to 5.0mm, and the thickness of copper varies from 0.5oz to 3oz. All of these have caused huge price differences in the sheet metal. In the aspect of solder resistance ink, there is also a price difference between the ordinary thermosetting oil and the sensitized green oil, so there are different materials. It has become a variety of prices.

 2. Price diversity due to different production processes adopted by PCB

Different production processes will result in different costs. For example, gold-plated and tin-sprayed boards, Gong (milling) boards and beer (punching) boards with different shapes, and the use of silk-printed and dry-film circuits will result in different costs, leading to price diversification.

 Price Diversity Caused by Different Difficulties of PCB

Even if the materials are the same and the process is the same, the difficulty of PCB itself will cause different costs. If there are 1000 holes in both PCBs, the hole diameter of one board is greater than 0.6mm and that of the other board is less than 0.6mm, different drilling costs will be formed; if the other two PCBs are the same, but the line width and line spacing are different, one is greater than 0.2mm, the other is less than 0.2mm, which will also cause different production costs, because it is difficult. Plate scrap rate is high, and the inevitable cost increases, which leads to price diversification.

 Fourth, different customer requirements will lead to different prices

The level of customer requirements will directly affect the finished product rate of the board mill. For example, a board according to ipc-a-600e, class 1 requires 98% qualified rate, but according to class 3, it may only have 90% qualified rate, resulting in different costs of the board mill, and eventually lead to changes in product prices.

 V. Price Diversity Caused by Different PCB Manufacturers

Even if the same product, because different manufacturers have different process equipment and technology level, they will have different costs. Nowadays, many manufacturers like to produce tinplate. Because the process is simple and the cost is low, but there are also some manufacturers who produce gold-plated plate. The scrap rate rises and the cost increases, so they prefer to produce spraying. Tin sheet, so their price of tinplate is lower than that of gold plated sheet.

 VI. Price Differences Caused by Different Ways of Payment

At present, PCB board factories generally adjust the price of PCB according to different payment methods, ranging from 5% to 10%, thus resulting in price differences.

 VII. Price Diversity Caused by Regional Differences

At present, in terms of geographic location, from south to north, prices are increasing. There are some differences in prices between different regions, so regional differences also lead to price diversity.
