SMT Assembly

Surface mount technology (SMT) is the most commonly used process in the industry when it comes to Surface Mount (SMT) PCB Assembly. Not without any reason, it allows for components to be mounted directly on the surface mount PCB. The technique lends itself to miniaturization of assemblies, which is the order of the day. Also, SMT Assembly (Surface Mount Assembly) known for their high mechanical strength. The SMT printed circuit boards are a preferred choice for high-speed circuits.

At Technotronix, we have over 40 years of experience in SMT PCB Assembly. With automated SMT Assembly process our boards ensure optimal performance in the most challenging applications.

Benefits of SMT PCB Assembly

SMT printed circuit boards come with a wide range of advantages, the most important ones being the fact that they lend themselves to small size and reduced weight. In addition to this, some of the other advantages of SMT assembly (surface mount assembly) include:

  • Quick production – The fact that the circuit boards don’t have to be drilled for assembly, means that production is far quicker.
  • Higher circuit speeds – In fact, this is one of the major reasons that SMT is the technology of choice today.
  • Fabrication automation – It lends itself to automation and its many benefits.
  • Cost – Small sized components typically come at a lower cost than their through-hole counterparts.
  • Density - They allow for more components to be positioned on both sides of the SMT printed circuit boards.
  • Design flexibility – It is possible to combine through-hole and SMT assembly manufacturing to offer greater functionality.
  • Improved performance – SMT connections are more reliable and hence the boards make for improved performance.

APPLICATION OF SMT ASSEMBLY (SURFACE MOUNT ASSEMBLY)

Surface Mount technology is actually the most commonly used process when it comes to electronic SMT Assembly. Its application is therefore ubiquitous. With surface mount technology encapsulating increased electronic components in a small space, a large percentage of equipment today use surface mount technology. With miniaturization becoming increasingly important, the importance of SMT technology is only slated to grow.
