For the small volume PCB assembly process, we use three different technologies –
- Through-hole Mounting
- Surface Mount Technology
- Mixed Technology
Through-hole Mounting – While we opt for this method for low volume PCB assembly, our designers place the requisite components in the holes drilled on the board. Although an old-school technology, we make the best use of this technique. Especially for industrial applications in aerospace, we make use of this technique to make your circuit boards withstand high levels of stress and operate at high speeds and temperatures. We make sure the bond between the circuit and its components is stronger and hence you can have a reliable product that provides a high level of efficiency for your operations.
Surface Mount Technology – Our purpose to go for the SMT technique is to improve the quality as well as performance. As we mount the components onto the surface of PCBs, we offer tremendous flexibility, and more importantly, even the complex circuits can be done into small assemblies. Even the smallest of the components can be mounted by using contact terminals instead of leads. Also, we meticulously build dual-sided circuit boards with all the components on one side and complex circuitry on the other side. Through the automation process, we build highly customizable circuit boards for almost any application.
Mixed Technology – We use the properties of SMT and through-hole whenever necessary. We are a reliable small batch PCB manufacturer and well-equipped with the capabilities of both SMT and THT for manufacturing circuit boards. We can provide quick prototypes and even go for high-speed production. We have advanced and precise equipment to place the component of miniature size with great accuracy. You can have custom assemblies that are built by following the best practices in the industry.
