PCB Manufacturing Testing and Inspection Services

Comprehensive PCB Testing and Inspection

Printed circuit board testing and inspection is one of the most important processes in PCB manufacturing. The growing demand of PCBs in various electronic and industrial applications as well as the complexity of the designs have made PCB testing and PCB inspections two essential tasks. At APC, we offer a range of services related to PCB testing and inspection.

What We at APC Offer

As PCBs can range from simple to complex, we understand that every company will have different needs even when it comes to testing and inspection. For this reason, we offer 3 different types of inspection services. Clients can choose the service that will best suit their PCB design and allow the product to be delivered on time.

  • AOI Inspection: Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) is one of the most popular and preferred testing methods used today. It uses an optical imaging system to detect faults, defects, and issues related to soldering and assembly. Customers choose this process for its speed and accuracy.
  • Manual Inspection: Despite its limitations, manual PCB inspection is chosen by many customers. In this process, we have individual testers who thoroughly examine the PCB, its components, and the assembly. They check the efficacy of the soldering, the placement and rigidity of the components, and the functionality of the product. This is also an extremely cost-effective method.
  • AXI Inspection: Automated X-Ray Inspection (AXI) is the upgraded version of AOI. It follows the same principle of optical imaging; with only x-rays being the mode of image capture. AXI allows for the inspection of non-visible solder joints. This method is particularly useful for complex Ball Grid Array (BGA) designs.


At APC, we suggest the best option to customers depending on the size of the order and the complexity of the PCBs. We also provide custom-made testing and inspection processes to ensure the efficacy of your PCB.
