When putting your components together, there are a few options to choose between in the assembly process. Here are four options to look at when having your product assembled in China.
Partial assembly, meaning that only portions of a product are assembled together and then additional steps may be completed at a later date with the semi assembled parts. This option is for companies that want to keep part of their production in-house. Parts of a product are put together but it is not shipped completely finished. Instead, different components are sent piece by piece.
Rivet Assembly uses a permanent mechanical fastener. This involves using rivets, which are a bolt like fastener. Before being installed, a rivet consists of a smooth cylindrical shaft with a head on one end. The end opposite to the head is called the tail. The base of the rivet opens up to 1 ½ times its size, securing its position. This is a less expensive and faster, than welding, when securing parts together.
Assembly by welding fuses to pieces of material together, usually by heating the materials and melding them. Welding has many applications in fields such as robotics, construction, industrial, commercial, automobiles and more.
Mechanical assembly is the process of putting together components on an assembly line and also refers to an assembled product or part made in this way. Mechanical assembly uses different types of hardware to put parts together. These can include nuts, bolts, screws, and other similar hardware.
Mechanical assembly is ideal for pieces that may need replacement parts in the future, require adjustments or any sort of work that is not permanent, like a housing for a lightbulb.
