Manufacturing Process


PhotoFast’s factory in Taipei currently has eight advanced Surface Mount Technology (SMT) lines. At three shifts per day, the total production capacity is 2.5 million units per month.

PhotoFast uses only the most modern manufacturing and testing equipment, making our advanced production facility the best in the industry. Production staff is intensively trained to ensure that all products meet the company’s rigorous quality standards. Combined with our global logistics and distribution system, our customers are assured that they get quality products as soon as they need them, anywhere in the world.

Every PhotoFast part we produce is individually tested using our sophisticated testing equipment and testing software written specifically for each product. PhotoFast’s efficient and thorough quality control ensures that we deliver more than just great products—we deliver confidence.

Scheduled Production / Flexible Manufacturing Process

To produce over 2,000 lines of products, PhotoFast operates an efficient manufacturing system based on scheduled production. By minimizing downtime when changing SMT lines from product to product, our manufacturing centers ensure sufficient operating inventory is available for our customers around the world, even for specialist applications. Also, our processes are highly flexible, allowing our production plans to be changed on very short notice. This means that our offices can be kept fully stocked, even when a customer makes an unexpected order.

Total Quality Control

PhotoFast has implemented the concept of Total Quality Control throughout every level of the company from R&D and Production to Administration and MIS. “Quality” is the guiding principle for PhotoFast products, staff development, and business and management systems. Internal regulations and procedures have been established to provide tight control over every aspect of PhotoFast’s operations. These rules and procedures are periodically evaluated for reformation or revision. The flexibility of the company’s business practices means there is always room for improvement and adoption of new methods.
