Automatic door PCB manufacturing material cost

Automatic door PCB manufacturing and assembly are completed by multiple professional teams. First, the PCB designer designs the circuit board according to the needs of the automatic door control system, including the layout of components, connection of lines, etc.

Then, the PCB manufacturing factory produces PCBs according to the design requirements. After exposure, etching, electroplating and other process steps, a PCB that meets the requirements is produced.

Next, various components of the automatic door are installed on the PCB, including sensors, controllers, actuators, etc. Finally, after testing and debugging, ensure the normal operation of the automatic door control system.


With the continuous development of technology, the electronic manufacturing industry has an increasing demand for PCB (Printed Circuit Board). PCB is an indispensable part of electronic equipment and is widely used in various fields, including communications, computers, aerospace, medical equipment, etc. As an important facility in public places, automatic doors’ operational stability and safety are crucial to people’s lives. This article will explore the manufacturing material costs of automatic door PCBs.

Automatic door PCB overview

Automatic door PCB is a special PCB used to control the opening and closing of automatic doors. It integrates a variety of electronic components, such as sensors, controllers, actuators, etc., to achieve intelligent control of automatic doors. Automatic door PCB has the characteristics of high precision, high stability, and high anti-interference to meet various needs in practical applications.

Manufacturing material cost structure

The manufacturing material cost of automatic door PCB mainly includes the following parts:

  1. Substrate: The basic material of PCB. Commonly used ones include FR4, CEM-1, aluminum substrate, etc.
  2. Copper foil: used to make conductive paths on PCB, generally using electrolytic copper foil or rolled copper foil.
  3. Glue: used to bond the base material and copper foil together. Commonly used ones include epoxy resin glue, polyurethane glue, etc.
  4. Dry film: used to protect copper foil from oxidation and mechanical damage. Commonly used ones include polyimide dry film, polyester dry film, etc.
  5. Drill bit: used to drill holes in the base material to insert and solder components to the PCB.
  6. Solder: used to connect components to PCB. Commonly used ones include solder, lead-tin alloy, etc.
  7. Other auxiliary materials: such as wires, sockets, switches, etc.

Material cost calculation method

The manufacturing material cost calculation method for automatic door PCB generally adopts the following steps:

  1. Count the consumption of all materials, including base material, copper foil, glue, dry film, drill bits, solder and other auxiliary materials. These consumption amounts can be determined based on actual production conditions and design requirements.
  2. Determine the unit price of all materials. These unit prices can be determined based on market prices and supplier quotes.
  3. Calculate the total cost of each material based on material consumption and unit price.
  4. Add the total cost of all materials to get the total cost of manufacturing materials for the automatic door PCB.

Factors affecting cost

The manufacturing material cost of automatic door PCB is affected by many factors, including:

  1. Selection of substrates: Different types and qualities of substrates have different prices. Choosing the right substrate is crucial to reducing costs.
