SMT Assembly By Feature

Prototype SMT Assembly

The Prototype SMT Assembly will give an idea of how the finished product will function; this will help in verifying the product’s functionality. One benefit of prototyping is that it will enhance the final product since the faults will be found early in the phases.

Quick-Turn SMT Assembly

The primary mission of a Quick-Turn SMT Assembly is to guarantee zero delays; hence, the production will run smoothly and the consumers will receive their products quickly in the least amount of time possible. Also, Quick-Turn is known to be cost-effective.

Low Volume SMT Assembly

The Low Volume SMT Assembly manufactures in minimal quantity only. One of the benefits that Low Volume production can provide is you can test it with robust testing methods; hence, you can easily determine possible issues and replacements needed.

Large Volume SMT Assembly

The High Volume SMT Assembly refers to the mass production of PCBs. In essence, one cycle of production involves the assembly of greater than or equal to 1,000 PCBs. If you want the byproducts to be consistent at a low price, this is perfectly ideal.

LED PCB SMT Assembly

The LED PCB SMT Assembly prefers surface-mounted components since they look way cleaner compared to the byproducts of a through-hole approach which makes it look cheap on the outside surface. It offers efficiency at an affordable cost.

Flex PCB SMT Assembly

The Flex PCB SMT Assembly can withstand extreme temperatures due to its polyimide flex material. Also, this material is tolerant to gases, oils, and acids. They have the properties of a Flex PCB and are frequently used in modern technologies; consumer electronics.

SMT Assembly By Layers (5)

  • 4-Layer SMT Assembly

    The 4-Layer SMT Assembly is already considered to be robust. Hence, drives us to one of its advantages; exceptional durability. Another advantage of deploying a 4-Layer is its increased assembly density. This is widely used in computers and medical monitors.

  • 6-Layer SMT Assembly

    The 6-Layer SMT Assembly is consist of six copper layers that are glued simultaneously, which makes them appropriate for high-density applications such as small electronic devices. It is anticipated to exhibit remarkable electrical characteristics and it is lightweight.

  • 8-Layer SMT Assembly

    It is known that the 8-Layer SMT Assembly needs considerable clearance on its board. In addition, compared to other stacked boards, an 8-Layer can give decent EMC insulation, additional networking layers, and improved high-speed signal management.

  • 10-Layer SMT Assembly

    The primary goal of a 10-Layer SMT Assembly board is to prevent loss of signal. Hence, they are widely deployed in GPS tracking devices, satellite dishes, and other applications where the transmission of signals is crucial. One of its advantages is its flexibility.

  • 16-Layer SMT Assembly

    The 16-Layer SMT Assembly is regarded to perform better compared to the other layered boards. It is recognized to be powerful since it is capable of transmitting and receiving data transmission signals at a very high speed with minimal to no interference.

SMT Assembly By Soldermask Colors (6)

  • Green SMT Assembly

    With the Green SMT Assembly, every component in the board is clearly seen; hence, they are the most widely deployed solder mask color in the market. We provide green solder both in glossy and matte variations.

  • Blue SMT Assembly

    The Blue SMT Assembly color is famous for its aesthetic appeal, however, the traces in this color can be hard to identify without the use of any magnification tool and adequate amount of lighting in inspecting the board.

  • Red SMT Assembly

    The Red SMT Assembly’s silkscreen can be visibly seen in this color. In addition, red comes the second most popular among the users because they offer good visibility and contrast for the traces, planes, and empty spaces.

  • Black SMT Assembly

    The Black SMT Assembly comes in two variations; we have the glossy and matte. When compared to other colors, black is way much more expensive to produce, and they’re not advisable to deploy in high heat operations.

  • White SMT Assembly

    The White SMT Assembly color is popular among LED applications because if the lights are on, it emits less invasive colors and they come in unity every time the light is turned off. However, it’s hard to identify the traces on it.

  • Yellow SMT Assembly

    Due to its appealing appearance, which includes all the styles, cleanliness, and visibility, the Yellow SMT Assembly color is growing in popularity across the globe. The silkscreen and traces, however, are poorly contrasted.

Characteristics of an SMT Assembly

As you go along, you could have a lot of questions about what an SMT Assembly is and how it can help you build PCBs. This section will explain what an SMT Assembly is and how it stands out over other assemblies.

Surface Mount Technology, also known as SMT, is thought of as a substitute for the Through-Hole approach. Instead of placing wire leads into pre-drilled holes, SMT assembly typically involves soldering components into the board via reflow soldering.

Nowadays, SMT Assembly is frequently chosen due to its accessibility and high-volume production of consumer electronics; it is greatly preferred when large production is required. Send us a message if you’d want further details about SMT assembly!

Materials Deployed in SMT Assembly

Materials Deployed in SMT Assembly

To have a further understanding of how the SMT Assembly works, we’ll share with you the materials it uses for the construction.

  • Solder Paste – Key material in completing the SMT Assembly since it attaches SMC and/or SMD over the board surface.
  • Flux – Used to eliminate oxide and prevents the metal surface from being wet.
  • Adhesive – This assists the solder paste and prevents SMD from falling off.
  • Cleaning Agent – Used to clean the residues made by solder paste and others.

These four components are all necessary for SMT assembly, and each one is used to optimize all of your PCB purchases. Consult us if you want to learn more about this!

Advantages of SMT Assembly

In this section, we will discuss what SMT Assembly can offer you.

  • Efficiency – Since SMT Assembly is performed in an automated process, they reduce errors, and therefore, produce exceptional byproducts.
  • Cost – With SMT Assembly requiring fewer drilling holes, they greatly lower its overall cost. Also, its component cost less than the through-hole.
  • Size – SMT Assembly can reduce the overall size of the board by 605 to 70% and its weight by 60% to 90%.
  • Signal Transmission – SMD components have no leads on them; thus, reducing the RF interference by providing high-speed transmission.

We’re accessible around the clock to help if you want to learn more about this!

SMT Assembly: The Ultimate FAQ Guide

If you are new to the industry, the Ultimate FAQ Guide for SMT Assembly is a great starting point, and we have all the answers you need to succeed. If you are not familiar with SMT pads, the first question you should ask is: What are they? How do you ensure that all pads are oriented correctly? Make sure your solder paste is at room temperature and applied correctly. Scrape angle and speed must be monitored as they can indicate potential soldering errors or delays.

There are two types of surface mount technology. The first is manual and the second is automated. Manual assembly takes time and requires a lot of attention. Manual assembly requires the use of manual labor, especially during the design process and when parts are small. However, automated assembly eliminates the need for manual labor and allows you to complete your project faster. Automated surface mount assembly, in addition to speeding up the process, reduces human error.

The SMT assembly process requires a wide range of skills and expertise. Depending on the complexity of the project, the cost of materials can range from $300 to $8,000. First, select a surface mount technology manufacturer and review the bill of materials. If the project requires more complex components, consider working with a specialized manufacturer. In addition to expertise, there are numerous online resources to help you get started.
