Advanced Assembly

Form Factor No Longer Limits Performance

Jabil Advanced Assembly Solutions

Product manufacturing has gone through several phases of innovation and evolution. New technologies are changing the way products are being manufactured. Capabilities like automation are creating cheaper labor solutions while increasing quality and precision. In turn, consumers are expecting increased performance and durability in the products they purchase while at the same time demanding those offerings at reduced cost. For today’s products, especially consumer electronics, advanced  assembly solutions provide new opportunities of innovation and growth.

As technology continues to improve manufacturing solutions and increase product expectations, issues like environmental impact and increased visual appeal to challenge companies to find new ways to keep consumers engaged. As a global manufacturing solutions provider for the world’s top brands and products, Jabil’s advanced assembly solutions help customers overcome the challenges of a rapidly changing manufacturing landscape:

  • Streamline sourcing with component and capabilities coming from multiple places
  • Successfully manage and innovate complex supply chains
  • Partner with reliable suppliers throughout product manufacturing cycle
  • Increase overall efficiency and increase time-to-market

For electronics manufacturing services (EMS), advanced assembly is the ability to precisely integrate electronic and mechanical components of a variety of materials into tight spaces without compromising performance. Jabil’s unique experience with micro/macro assembly, interconnect, and wafer-level manufacturing processes enables reducing the size of electronic components and increasing functionality without increasing product size. With Jabil, form factor no longer limits performance.

Miniaturization continues to drive the markets from aerospace to consumer electronics — smaller, lighter, thinner, and flexible components sell better. More product categories require friendly, human machine interfaces. Increasingly, designs require integrating circuits with non-traditional materials such as glass, films, paper, and textiles. Volumetric efficiency is a key success factor.

Firmly established and emerging markets benefit from advanced assembly solutions. Wearables and medical devices — fitness trackers, smart watches, headsets, smart terminals, head-up displays, insulin pumps, and hearing aids — are particularly enabled by portability. Jabil advanced assembly capabilities solve the following challenges by fitting functionality in a smaller footprint:

  • User comfort challenges

  • Accessibility barriers

  • Temperature/energy consumption concerns
