MacroFab Launches Easier PCB Instant Quote Interface

By The MacroFab Team  |  October 17, 2017

We’ve created a new, dedicated, PCB assembly instant quote interface to give you more options based on your project’s specifications. New service levels, for lowest-cost prototypes and full-featured designs, give you more control over your project and can be compared side-by-side. Planning just got even easier through a quick visualization tool that shows you the price for each service class at different volumes.

We are excited to announce our 10-day turnaround option for the Prototype Class Service. Now you’ll be able to iterate on your designs and perfect your prototype faster through MacroFab. These updates to the quoting screen will provide more clarity into what specs influence pricing, giving you greater control over your project, large or small.

Prototype Class Service

For low-volume and prototype orders where the price is most important, the Prototype Class Service allows you to take advantage of the great savings on low-volume orders you’ve come to expect from MacroFab. Our unique platform enables us to combine orders from many customers in-real time, sharing the production costs and eliminating NRE on very low-volume orders. The Prototype Class Service offers a more basic list of options, which allows us to pass on savings to our prototype customers. Some of the default specs include:

  • 2 or 4 layers
  • Red solder mask and white silkscreen
  • Preferred vendor components
  • Components which are currently available on the market
  • Lower production volumes

Production Class Service

For those customers with production level quantities or orders with custom requirements, the Production Class Service is designed to meet your needs, giving you flexibility and low minimum costs, while enabling easy scaling to high volumes through our international manufacturing capacity. Additional capabilities of this service class include:

  • Consignment materials
  • Parts not available from our preferred distributors
  • Order materials with lead times
  • Customize all PCB attributes
  • Low-Cost international manufacturing for higher-volume orders

Our platform will automatically update both Prototype and Production class service pricing based on your design and BOM. We will clearly show you the price breakdown for each service type so you can select which option best suits your needs.

10-day turnaround

We are excited to announce that we now offer 10-day Prototype Class turnaround for qualifying orders. For orders that meet the 10-day requirements, a notification will appear on the quoting screen and the shorter lead-time will be displayed. Here’s a list of what types of orders can be produced using our 10-day turn time:

  • Have no more than 50 units
  • Have fewer than 2,000 surface-mount placements (SMT)
  • Have fewer than 20 unique SMT line items
  • No through-hole placements

Redefining electronics manufacturing

MacroFab is redefining the electronics manufacturing experience from a manual, time-intensive, and error-prone process performed by large teams of people, into a real-time, streamlined, and connected software-driven experience. With our globally competitive prices available instantly, and an interface that provides more information in a clearer format, it’s now easier than ever for you to take control of your projects.
