Surface Mount Technology

Our SMT Platform

We run twin Europlacer based SMT technology.  Both feature fully automated screen printing (including paste inspection) and multi-zone reflow ovens. One line also incorporates automatic board handling to support higher volume requirements. All Surface mount assemblies pass through Automatic Optical Inspection.

Programs are stored centrally and shared between the lines. The common platform for our surface mount device, along with an intelligent trolley based loading system, mitigates any risk associated with a breakdown, as all circuits can be run on either line.


Our SMT Electronics Capability

Our electronic contract manufacturing services have a long and successful history of SMT placement. Twenty years ago, we placed our first BGAs. Over time, these have become micro BGAs, along with LGAs, QFNs, CSPs and all are now commonly used.

We are able to place packages from 01005 up to 99mm2. Odd form components are a Europlacer speciality.

Maximum feeder capacity is 264 x 8mm reels, meaning very large BoMs cause no issue. Tubed and trayed components are also handled with ease.
