Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are assembly & kitting services?


    Assembly and kitting services are processes in which individual components are combined or packaged together to form a finished product or kit.

    Assembly refers to the process of putting together multiple components to form a complete product. This can involve manual assembly, machine-assisted assembly, or a combination of both. Assembly services can be used to produce a wide range of products, from simple items like toys or household goods to complex systems like medical devices or aircraft components.

    Kitting refers to the process of packaging and distributing related components as a kit. Kitting services are commonly used in industries such as manufacturing, construction, and consumer goods to produce kits of components that are used to build or repair products. For example, a kit might include all the necessary components and instructions to build a piece of furniture or to repair a damaged appliance.

    Assembly and kitting services are typically provided by contract manufacturers or third-party service providers. The specific services provided and the equipment used will depend on the requirements of the industry and the specific application, such as the volume of production, the complexity of the product, and the required level of precision.
