Partnering opportunity

Smart platform to calculate price and assemble customised pcbs (printed circuit boards) for industry, buildings, infrastructure, connected transport, enabling IoT, energy, utilities, healthcare, manufacturing

Summary

A Brussels-based (Belgian) company with long-lasting experience in the field of electronics design and production has created a web platform to easily provide quality prototype assembled circuit boards a company may need. The platform allows users to easily get their custom pcb quote, by defining pcb's characteristics and selecting the components. Commercial agreement with technical assistance or manufacturing deals sought with companies in medical, transport, energy and building sectors

Partner sought

Type of Partner sought: SMEs or industry Area of expertise : buildings & Infrastructure, connected transport, enabling Io, energy & utilities, healthcare, manufacturing Role of Partner Sought: integration of the use of the proposed platform in the internal production processing of the above-mentioned players

Description

This Belgian company develops and produces electronics with a wide spectrum, to be able to help the customers in various fields, from consumer to medical. Paying strong attention to customers' needs, this company has decided to design and develop an on-line service (platform) which allows the user to instantly calculate the price for assembled printed circuit board from 1 to 50 pieces (and even more) from 5 working days on. The user-friendly interface efficiently allows to: - register a user, - initiate a search in the components database according to the characteristics of the bare board (FR4 material….dimensions….number of layers…), - upload the BOM (bill of materials/components list) - specify the desired quantity and delivery time - run the calculator and get the quote instantly displayed (the cheapest components' prices) - when gerber and component centroid files are uploaded, the user can place his order with a simple click and make the payment - the order processing starts immediately The quote covers all the costs from pcb (printed circuit board) and components to assembly. The company takes care of the order of the circuits, components, stencils and that the assembled circuits are manufactured and delivered on time. After the production a report is issued to allow improvement for series production. Taken into account of the above-mentioned characterstics, the platform has proved to be a valuable support for companies active in different industrial sectors (buildings %26 Infrastructure, connected transport, enabling Io, energy %26 utilities, healthcare, manufacturing) where the electronic components are part / have to be integrated in the final product for its functioning. With this perspective in mind, the Belgian company is looking for long lasting cooperation with industrial partners interested in using the platform to assemble the prototype circuit boards and thus collaborating with an experienced player developping and producing electronics with a wide spectrum

Advantages and innovations

The platform is a smart and easy tool for companies needing quality low volume production of assembled printed circuit board. To calculate the quote, the platform just needs the quantity, expected delivery time, the mounting style of the components, the bill of material and the characteristics of the circuit. Components are checked if reckognized and on stock, and the platform even proposes equivallents. The lead time for the assembled boards starts from 5 working days on. Its main innovative advantages are as follows: - Powerfull search engine: the search engine searches the company own stock and stocks of 4 on-line distributors, picking only the stock items at the best price. Search engine accepts differnt file formats and column order - Traceability Every product assembled gets a 2D barcode containing a unique number. This unique number acts as the product's passport. It contains the nature and origin of all the components inside the product and has a description of all the manipulations that have been performed on the circuit. If a component is unavailable, the customer is immediately informed. Poorly defined, incomplete or out-of-stock components are emphasized. – Reports Each production is documented with a production report showing you the problems and possible improvements. QR code for 100% traceability. - Fast quotation 24h/7d: Once everything is correct, the competitive quote is ready in a matter of seconds, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. - Secure payment - Data confidentiality - quality production - production starting from 1 piece - fast evolving platform

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
