How Motherboards Are Made: A Gigabyte Factory Tour - PCSTATS
PCSTATS takes you on a guided tour of Gigabyte's Motherboard Factory in Taiwan. There's a lot to producing and testing a single motherboard; a mind-boggling host of automated machines, people and processes. Gigabyte has several other factories in Taiwan and mainland China that each manufacture motherboards, videocards, and other products.

Final Motherboard Packaging

Once the motherboards are fully stress tested, they are ready to be packaged and shipped. Gigabyte, like most manufacturers, orders their motherboard boxes from a separate manufacturer and sends them off to be printed. Once the printed boxes are received, they pass through a machine which folds and shapes them correctly, then it's down another manual assembly line where workers place each tested motherboard into its box.

In go any promotional stickers, the cardboard divider, antistatic foam, software and other peripherals, then they are sent off to be packed into shipping boxes. The box packing machines are automated, wrapping packing plastic strips around each box faster than the human eye can see!
