Material inspection is the first quality control level of PCBA processing. It will affect the final quality of the product and the cost due to various defects.
PCBA manufacturers and customers must upgrade the IQC incoming inspection to a strategic position.
Strictly control the process to ensure the quality of the materials. In this article, PCBasic will introduce how to perform an IQC incoming inspection.
The full name of IQC is Incoming Quality Control. The process refers to confirming and checking the quality of purchased PCB boards and electronic components.
It involves measuring, inspecting, and testing all of the main characteristics of the materials.
Then, correspond these characteristics with the specified application requirements.
To wrap this up, comparing and determining material compliance is crucial, which will help to judge whether the batch of products is defective.
If we find any defective material, the material distributor should report it to the system in time. Labeling the material as flawed for processing is necessary to avoid such costly mistakes.
defective materials marked with defective labels and placed in the designated defective storage location for processing.
A standardized and standard process is the core of quality assurance. The process involves solving problems by precise execution.
The method involves sequences of specific tasks. Those tasks are a requirement in the standard operating manual of every manufacturer.
PCBasic has developed an entire standard process for incoming material inspection. We believe that firm adherence to standards is the key to ensuring material quality.

PCBA materials IQC tests:
The COOD10 software is installed on the computers equipped with each pointer. The software ensures that all pointers have search conditions which improves the efficiency and accuracy of the pointer’s confirmation.
Doing a good job in IQC incoming material inspection can eliminate redundant work links in the PCBA production process, and make the work process more reasonable, economical, and simple, thereby improving employee work efficiency and production line production efficiency. Improving product quality is a protracted battle.
Product quality is an important indicator of an enterprise’s development and the main factor that determines an enterprise’s economic strength and competitive advantage.
IQC incoming inspection is an indispensable step to ensure product quality. A good incoming inspection ensures material quality, which is an important job for an excellent PCBA processing factory.
