Time To Market 

Infrared Diagnosis

Sanmina’s state of the art failure analysis suite enables faster time to market by reducing fault isolation and diagnosis time on complex PCBAs by a factor of 3.

Time To Market 

Factory Simulation

Sanmina uses advanced simulation tools to design manufacturing processes, production lines & complete factories, designing layouts with confidence in half the time.

Time To Market 

One IT System

Sanmina has advanced I.T. systems, consistently deployed in all facilities around the world. One benefit is the fast transfer of BOM’s, AVL, test programs and drawings from a Sanmina NPI (new product introduction) facility near you, to another Sanmina facility for volume production.

Demand Management 

What-If Supply Chain Analysis

Sanmina’s Advanced IT systems enable a comprehensive supply chain “What-If” analysis within hours of a new forecast being received. New Buys, Cancellations, Pull Ins, Push Outs & E&O generated by demand change are visible.

Global Supply Chain Visibility


Sanmina Operations Management System allows throughput, yield & work-in-progress to be monitored in real-time from anywhere in the world using cloud based factory visualization & IT systems interoperability.

Cost Optimization 

No Touch Automation

Sanmina designs & operates full no-touch automation lines for medical, automotive & multimedia products delivering highly repeatable & cost effective manufacturing for hundreds of millions of products per year.

Task Automation

Quality Cost  – Measurable ROI

Sanmina has deployed literally hundreds of task automation cells to optimize quality and cost. Many of these have vision systems, and upload quality data to electronic travelers and online quality records.

Cost Optimization 

Automatic Guided Vehicle

Component delivery to SMT lines is proactive, predictive & automated because of interoperability between SMT machines requesting material, warehouse systems picking it & automatic guided vehicles delivering it.

Quality & Compliance 

Closed Loop Process Control

Machine to machine communication between the Solder Paste Inspection machine & the Screen Printer enables automatic adjustment of squeegee speed, pressure & snap off to maintain solder paste application within defined  limits.

Quality & Compliance 

Vision Verification

Vision systems interoperating with 42Q  & optical character recognition libraries detect missing components & labels, verify component orientation & confirm correct barcode & label content.

Quality & Compliance 

Traceability & Test Result Upload

Interoperability between scanning & communication devices in manufacturing & test machines enables delivery of component part number, serial number, date codes & test results to the Manufacturing Execution System.

Quality & Compliance 

Forced Routing

Scanning every product at each process step using a virtual representation of the manufacturing & test process in the cloud MES guarantees that it is manufactured using the defined process.

Quality & Compliance 

BOM Compliance

Interoperability between product data management systems, warehouse systems & manufacturing equipment ensures that each product is manufactured in compliance with the specified bill of materials.

Sanmina 4.0 combines industry 4.0, lean principles & advanced global IT systems to deliver value to customers in key areas including accelerating time to market, flexible demand management, simplifying the management of complex global supply chains, optimized cost, quality & regulatory compliance. Principles of interoperability, machine to machine communication, automation, IIoT & cloud computing are used to design & manage a global network of 75 state of the art manufacturing facilities.
