Contract manufacturers serving the medical device market typically divide into two distinct segments: electronics contract manufacturing and precision engineering contract manufacturers. Electronics contract manufacturers build both printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs) and electromechanical systems. Precision engineering contract manufacturers focus on non-electronic products requiring molding, metal fabrication, extrusions or other custom components. There are distinct skill sets in each type of supplier. Electronics contract manufacturers are typically experts in the assembly and test issues related to PCBAs and associated box builds. Precision engineering contract manufacturers are expert in tooling development, materials qualification and assembly automation.
