Join the cloud and revolutionize the way you design your next PCB!
PCBflow empowers you to streamline your design for manufacturability. Leverage its advanced features to identify and address potential issues early on, ensuring a smooth and error-free manufacturing process.
Say goodbye to the limitations of traditional methods and embrace the flexibility and efficiency that cloud technology offers.
Design for Assembly
PCBflow is a design for assembly (DFA) tool, offers flexibility when it comes to design formats. You can analyze designs from various CAD tools and effortlessly transfer the results back to your preferred CAD tool for any necessary corrections.
With DFA, you can validate your bill of materials (BOM) specific to manufacturers and identify any component placement or manufacturing violations. Even if you don’t have access to ODB++ or IPC2581, you can easily upload your designs in Gerber 274x format.
PCBflow acts as a guide for designers, helping them identify and correct manufacturability errors, while also providing a manufacturing risk analysis. DFA analysis allows for BOM validation using manufacturer part numbers from the Valor Part Library database, and highlights potential issues with component placement and assembly.
How Do I Start?
HERE'S WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US
Roberto Campri, Elco, Corporate Asia Manager
Digitization has led to a different way of thinking. You can do things in new, previously unimaginable ways. Elco has used PCBflow to help various customers streamline their design process and plans to continue using PCBflow with customers in the future.
Mauro Sandri, CEO, Elco
DFM software tools are generally expensive. Using PCBflow is a game changer in the DFM field, as it is affordable enough to allow companies of all sizes to adopt DFM best practices.
Pavel Yankovich, Sintecs
PCBflow directly connects PCB designers with manufacturers and assemblers. Checking for compliance with the technological requirements of the definite manufacturer or assembler allows for preventing the occurrence of potential problems before placing an order and adjusting the project. A simple and intuitive interface with an utterly easy workflow helps to start using PCBflow with no time losses.
Peter Fruehauf, Project Manager, Siemens CT
Especially designers in small and medium businesses should run a DFM analysis as well, because otherwise they would make PCB designs, which are actually not manufacturable.
Tamir Hazan, Owner, Speed – Board Electronics Ltd.
For PCB designers, project sharing is very important. Designers and manufacturers should be able to work with OES. PCBflow allows that.
Evgeny Makhline, Nistec CTO
With PCBflow, manufacturers can prevent losses related to false production, reduce repairs by 80% and free up to ~600 engineering and quality hours per year – hours that can be invested in innovation and improvement
Martin Franke, Business Development Electronics, Siemens CT
A manual check always includes the risk of overlooking things. But, using this tool, you have an automatic iteration between the PCB fabricator on one hand and the designer on the other hand. The report hepls us to improve the process in two ways: first of all, time, but also quality.
