Surface Mount Assembly

Facilities

ESD’s electronic assembly facility operated in a controlled anti-static environment. Using our fully automated SMT assembly machines we are able to supply low to high volume production. Our production line set up is flexible. We can use multiple machines in series for large projects or run multiple smaller projects simultaneously.

PCB's

At ESD we process a variety of PCB materials including flexible PCB’s, standard FR4 and also aluminium boards. Our machines handle PCBs in many sizes; from very small to approximately A3 in size (and occasionally larger). The PCBs can be single or double sided and consist of single or multiple layers

Prototypes

Customers can prove their designs using ESD’s PCB prototype assembly service, in addition ESD can source the PCB and components if required

HOW DOES SMT ASSEMBLY WORK?

ADVANTAGES OF SMT

AUTOMATED EQUIPMENT

Surface Mount MachinesSMT Machines

We have several automated pick and place machines, all of which can place fine pitch SMT components at high speed onto single or double sided PCBs. Each one of our machines can hold approximately 60 different component types, depending on the component shape and size.

Reflow OvenSEVERAL TEMPERATURE ZONES

Our reflow oven has several temperature zones to enable gentle heating and cooling of the PCBA. We program both the temperature and speed through each zone based on the PCB material and the components on the board. This care and attention to detail is to ensure the quality and joint integrity on each SMD assembly.

AOI(Automated Optical Inspection)

Our AOI (Automated Optical Inspection) machines inspect each surface mount assembly, looking at the markings on each component. This inspection confirms that the type, value and orientation of the component match the pre-programmed values.
