What's contract manufacturing service?
Contract manufacturing is a kind of outsourcing manufacturing service between the company and their outsourced manufacturer(contract manufacturer). The contract manufacturer mainly provides custom product manufacturing service for their clients under an agreed manufacturing contract and specification. For example, Apple company finds Foxconn to manufacturer Iphone, so Foxconn is a contract manufacturer of Apple
Contract manufacturing services could be parts manufacturing, product assembly, or full product manufacturing. In recently years, the contract manufacturing service trends to participate product design and development stage, which means the company might just has a idea/concept, which requires their manufacturer to design, develop, and manufacture it for ready-to-sell-products. The contract manufacturer works the whole process to make it reality.
Since contract manufacturing service brings lots of benefits at cost-saving, energy-saving, and fast-to-market. Many small companies, start-ups, or even established brands love to working with contract manufacturing partners, instead of manufacturing the products by themselves, which enables them to focus their efforts on marketing and sales.

Unique GW Manufacturing System
In order to prevent any faulty and avoid defective products , we developed a practical and efficient GW(gateway)system that used to verify, test, and perform a scientific manufacturing system. And ensure the higher quality products to be manufactured at us.
GW 1: Sysematic Engineering Verification Process
A high level of engineering verification could be 10 times valuable compared to manufacturing. This is why we emphasize to spend large energy on engineering verification before production. Our profound engineering team work from prototype, engineering building, pilot run, until mass production, making sure no pitfall will slide down production line.
GW 2: Proactive Planning & Schedule
It's our work procedure to get all necessary work prepared as soon as we confirmed the order from clients. We plan, schedule, consider everything in advance, instead of temporarily hitting some target. Production material plan and production line arrangement are essential process for any order.
GW 3: Comprehensive Training for All Staff
We are clearly aware of the importance of experienced people that is one of most important factors to produce high quality products. At Inno, we provide full skill training plan for all of our staff including project engineer, technician, QC, and operator. This is to get them mastered with their expert and fully understand our quality standard and requirement.
GW 4: Strict Inspection for Parts, Process, and Assembly
We have 5 experienced QC in house that perform QC inspection for both mechanical and electronic inspection. All of incoming material, parts, process components, and finished product must be inspected with AQL quality standard, and get some critical parts fully inspected. This is a very practical way to avoid defective rate.
Full Contract Manufacturing Capabilities
Product Design, Development, and Engineering
As one-stop contract manufacturer, we also provide product design and development services to those clients who just have a product concept or idea, and need someone to help realize their thoughts to "ready-to-sell" products.
We have an 15 people of product design and engineering team who have over 20 years of experience in the new product design and manufacturing field, we are confident to help clients to make their dream to come true.
Most of time, we engineer, manufacture, and follow up customer's design drawing to finished products. Making sure the best quality products to be manufactured all the time.
Prototyping is a very practical method to verify product function and fitting, we are facilitated with CNC machines, SLA, 3D printing machines in house for prototype creation. We accept pure prototype work, or full product manufacturing.
Per our experience, whatever how perfect your design might be, we always encourage customer to perform some prototypes verifying their design. Per our experience, a new-designed products should undergo 3~5 around of prototypes. If in case, any imperfection or defect found, we can refine our design quickly, instead of modifying mold tooling while later stage. That’s also being said, prototyping process can greatly prevent design fault and avoid unnecessary engineering change.
While contract manufacturing process, as long as the prototypes are prepared, all of design matters should be identified and fixed. It’s time to get all of parts to be manufactured so as to be prepared for mass production. During this process, all of mold tooling, fixtures, and PCB board should be created. Particular for injection mold, metal stamping mold, and PCBA fixture.
Before moving all the parts to mass production, all of parts must be qualified by both FA inspection and incoming material inspection. At Inno, we routinely check out parts dimension, appearance, as well as parts fitting for each lot of parts production. Ensuring all of parts are completely in accordance with design specification.
Engineering Building, Small Run, and Mass Production
As soon as all of parts are manufactured, it’s necessary to create 5~10 sets of engineering buildings, which is actually used to inspect all of parts, material, and process are correctly performed. If any defects or imperfection found, we can correct it quickly, instead of leaving defects to latter. On the other hand, a 100~200 pcs of small runs should be performed to verify production system. By means of pilot run, we can identify our SOP and repeatability. Before kicking off a mass production, our operators, technicians, QC must be well-trained with professional skills and knowledge, a SOP instruction is a basic written document laying aside of operation station, which ensures every one knows product specification and quality criteria.
Quality control should be fulfilled throughout the whole process of product design and manufacturing. Our experienced QC team participate the early stage of product design and engineering process, and outline specific quality standard and quality plan for individual products.
Inno manufacturing, an ISO 9001 certificated company, we take strict quality control from raw material to finished products, We perform AQL quality standard for all of incoming material/parts, process, and assembled products. Making sure our clients will receive higher quality products from us.
Our Service Procedure
Quotation & Order Confirmation
We get project started by quotation approval and deposit payment from clients at the very begin of an order.
DFM & Prototyping
We perform verification process by using DFM analysis and prototyping, make sure our project is designed properly.
Mold Tool & Parts Manufacturing
Once prototype is approved by customers, we start to build mold tool, as well as producing all of parts.
Pilot Run & Golden Sample
We run a 200 pcs of production trial for each new project, and send samples to customer to approve GOLDEN SAMPLES.
Upon receiving of golden sample and production order from customer, we start to arrange mass production immediately.
Inspection & Shipping
We perform strict quality inspection for all of finished products. and ship the finished packed products to customer's destination.
