SMD - THT Guide and Total Line Concepts
Find the right equipment for your printed circuit board assembly
GUIDE FOR SMT and THT LINE CONCEPTS - TOTAL LINE SOLUTIONS
SMT stands for surface mount technology. This is a process for mounting electrical components (SMD - Surface Mount Devices) directly on the surface of a printed circuit board (PCB).
SMT technology has essentially replaced THT (through-hole technology) in the industry, as improved automation of manufacturing has reduced costs and increased quality. It is also possible to fit more components on a given area of the PCB (higher component density).
However, due to the ever increasing currents on a PCB and the demands on the components, THT technology is increasingly returning. In electromobility in particular, more and more components have to be soldered to the PCB using a wave soldering system or a selective soldering system. Plugs and sockets are also being used more and more in through-hole assembly.
But how are the right machines selected for an production line?
As always, the budget for such a project should not be forgotten.
A STANDARD SMT-LINE USUALLY CONSISTS OF THE FOLLOWING MACHINES AND PROCESSES.
SPI-Solder Paste Inspection 2D/3D - Optisches Kontrollsystem für Lotpasten
AOI - Optisches Kontrollsystem
Kontrolle & Funktionstest
Housing & Verpackung
SMT lines that are designed for high production capacities usually consist of several high-speed placement machines and a multifunction placement machine. Of course, the other SMT production lines must also be designed for the cycle time and speed so that a bottleneck does not occur.
Usually the same products run here for several days, weeks or even months.
Small and medium production lines are particularly suitable for small and medium-sized companies in order to be able to react quickly to customer requests and to carry out the associated rapid product changes. High- Mix - Low to Medium - Volume
