In a previous blog, we have already mentioned that “At the beginning of 2018, PCBWay Spent $2,000,000 + $1,200,000  in ordering two whole set of Surface Treatment Equipment Automatic Copper Production Line. Heretofore, PCBWay has formed a system with headquarter in Hangzhou and 3 major PCB and 2 PCBA production bases in Shenzhen.” (To watch more videos about our factory, please subscribe PCBWay YouTube Channel). Now, with the continuous introduction of new production equipment, the increasing number of factory employees and the closer production’s relations between factories, the most obvious result is that PCBWay lead time is shrinking. After last month's test, three production bases have fully adapted to the new lead time schedule.


Below is the latest lead time schedule for the small-batch PCB orders.

PCB Order Quantity 

Original Lead Time

Current Lead Time

0- 50 pcs & < 1m22 - 3 Days24 hours

1m2 - 5m2

5 - 6 Days

3 - 4 Days

5m2 - 10m2

6 - 7 Days

4 - 5 Days

More than 10m2

8 - 10 Days

5 - 6 Days

We shorten the delivery time while guarantee quality,produced by chemical processes for pads and vias metallization,Refuse conductive adhesive technology to save costs ,each order must go through 70 minutes copper plating,AOI and probe test,and we take advantage of internationally known base materials,


1. The modify of lead time applies to orders with the following specification

FR-4 Material,

Board thickness 1.0, 1.2, 1.6,

Green solder mask,

White silkscreen,


Finished Copper: 1OZ,

Min Hole Size: >=0.3 mm,

Min Track/Spacing: >=6/6 mil


2. Orders for special options such as castellated holes,edge plating,impedance control and buried/blind via are NOT included.


3. Per 100cm2, it must meet that NO more than 4 metal slots, NO more than 500 test points, NO more than 500 drill holes, NO more than 10 lines for V-cutting, or NO more than 50cm for total length of non-metal gutters.  


4. For the order with a complicated design, lead time is determined by Document Review Department (usually it will take within 10 minutes to check your file).

In addition to the reduction in lead time, PCBWay not only reduced the price of small batch PCB,but also the freight cost for DHL parcels below 1 KG. Please place an online order by yourself to know more info.

Enjoy your PCBWay's experience.
