What Is Box Building Assembly, and How Does It Relate to Turnkey PCB Fabrication?

As a part of a total electronics manufacturing solution, box building assembly is another name for the mechanical systems integration phase of the electronics manufacturing process. Unlike the primary PCB assembly, where the manufacturer only builds and delivers populated printed circuit boards, a turnkey box building assembly goes the extra mile by putting the populated printed circuit board in a finished product.

This involves sourcing and installing wiring harnesses and cables, designing and installing any sub-assembly components, and embedding the whole package together in a customized enclosure. Other steps in a box building may refer software loading and system configuration, packaging and labeling, and more.

Additionally, the product may be subject to firmware burning-in or functional and final testing as part of the quality control process. Following a box building, the completed unit device may be drop-shipped directly to the customer or sent back to the manufacturer for additional packaging or testing.

What Is Included in a Box Building Assembly?

A box building assembly includes multiple services related to the electronics assembly and delivery of a final project. The services provided as part of a box building assembly depend on the supplier’s comprehensive capabilities and the client’s needs.

As a part of turnkey assembly solution, box building services cover the steps you need to complete between PCB assembly, testing and product delivery.

  • Prototype unit reference: Sample units reference provide your partner with visual and physical information about your intended results. If you don’t have a CAD drawing of your project, some companies can create a design based on a existing prototype.
  • Testing procedures: Consider providing your assembly partner with testing procedures. The project designer should complete a set of approved testing document and send it to supplier to specifically use it to perform functional testing or other specific testing if any.
  • Packing&Shipping instruction: By determining how to package and ship your product before building, you should correctly provide your assembly partner critical information. Your packaging and shipping information influences how the supplier will complete the other steps in the process.
