NextPCB is now certified for automotive PCB manufacturing according to the IATF 16949: 2016. IATF (International Automotive Task Force) is an ISO technical specification, which complies with the existing automotive quality system standards in the United States, Germany, Italy, France, Japan.
The importance of IATF certificate for a PCB assembly manufacturer
The automobile is a complex industrial product, composed of thousands of components and parts. The PCB hardware technology of automobile products is of great difficulty. The manufacturing process is very complicated, so the division of labor in the whole manufacturing process must be extremely meticulous and highly professional. To complete the manufacture of a high-quality automobile PCB assembly, the PCB manufacturer often needs to purchase components from hundreds of suppliers around the world.
A PCB manufacturer that is IATF certified would have a distinct advantage in market competition because IATF is recognized as the automotive industry’s highest system and process quality standard. Based on the requirements of the ISO9001 quality management system and the special needs of the automobile industry, manufacturers par more attention to defect prevention and reduce the quality fluctuation and waste in the supply chain of automobile parts. Customers can get automotive PCBs with high quality from the PCB manufacturer that is IATF certified.
