Dangers and Pitfalls of Bad Electronic Parts
Bad or Counterfeit parts is an irrefutable reality within the modern electronics industry. Today, there is no dearth of counterfeit and refurbished parts, remarked products or parts that lack original packing.
The reasons for the growing menace of bad electronic parts are however not hard to discern. Often buyers have purchased fake parts without knowing much about the supplier. In times of shortage, buyers scramble for parts and may end up buying components from a source they would not normally consider if the parts were not in short supply
Sometimes, buyers may make opportunistic purchases for components priced at below the market price. At times, these parts may be substandard or fake. In several instances, parts are from rejected lots but may carry genuine markings from the component manufacturers. While looking at the marking, these parts may appear genuine but may actually be bogus.
If the deal looks too good to be true Purchasing managers need to that it probably is too good to be true.
What does this mean to Buyers?
• Buyers need to be extra careful when buying parts in the open market.
• Buyers are asking for trouble if they buy parts from unknown sources, especially at times of shortage.
• Before buying, it will be prudent to undertake a little research about the supplier.
Effort should be made to buy from only those suppliers who are reliable, recognised and have adequate experience in supplying electronic components.
