All of our gadgets today have their PCB components. From electronic toys to smartphones to the most high-tech computers, all of these should undergo recycling at the end of their lifespan. Nickel alloy recycling plants like Alnor Industries break down electronic devices back into their raw materials when your devices and gadgets no longer operate accordingly.
There are three major types of printed circuit boards found within electronics that can be recycled. These are the single-sided, double-sided and the multi-layered. But with the electronics industry going for more compact devices today, engineers are required to produce smaller, faster, and more complex devices each year. Outdated electronics should not end up in the landfill, especially when there are nickel alloy recycling facilities in place to process them ethically.
This is why nickel alloy recycling must play an important role to every PCB manufacturer, or else a failure of proper disposal is a failure of the brand that carries it. However, although a lot of PCB manufacturers have their testing system and monitoring facilities running, there are still those that are creating PC boards not par to international standards. This causes electronics to fail sooner and be disposed of quicker.
PCBAs From Abroad
China is well known to be the world’s number one producers of PCBA. Unfortunately, we all know that gadgets made in China have shorter life spans, prone to damage, and don’t generally meet the international standards for quality. In other words, testing their boards has proven to be superficial.
Printed circuit board testing is necessary in order for the technicians to find defects and imperfections. A reliable manufacturing company will also test its products to the extreme to know the boards’ potential and durability. The problem, however is that, offshore PCBA manufacturers don’t conduct thorough analysis with their printed circuit boards. This usually happens if you cannot monitor the production of your PCBA.
Failure of the board to meet expectations can replicate a thousand fold on the part of the distributor and to the brand that carries the PCBAs itself.
Local PCBA Advantages
On the other hand, if you can find a local manufacturer that put their PCBAs to intensive testing, you can save your reputation as a buyer and as a distributor. You can also monitor everything thoroughly from layout, sourcing out the materials, up to testing your products. Electronics that last longer are less likely to wind up in disposal.
