The Most Common Applications of Plate-Through Hole (PTH), Coating & Box Builds

Understanding the significance of Plate-Through Hole (PTH) technology, along with coating and box builds, is crucial for mastering the intricacies of modern electronics and PCBA manufacturing. These elements are essential for producing high-quality, reliable products.

What is Plate-Through Hole Technology?

Plate-Through Hole (PTH) technology involves mounting electronic components by inserting their leads into drilled holes on the PCB, ensuring robust mechanical support and reliable electrical connections. Coating refers to the application of protective layers, such as conformal coatings, to electronic assemblies, safeguarding them against moisture, chemicals, and other contaminants. Box builds encompass the comprehensive assembly of electronic systems, including PCB assembly, components, wiring, and more, all housed within enclosures or chassis.


Plate-Through Hole Applications

Camtronics has utilised Plate-Through Hole (PTH) assembly across a range of applications, including industrial control systems, automotive electronics, and medical devices.

In industrial control systems, PTH technology guarantees reliable connections for components exposed to harsh operating conditions.

In automotive electronics, PTH assemblies deliver the durability and longevity essential for safety-critical systems.

In medical devices, PTH assembly ensures precise and consistent performance, which is crucial for patient well-being.


Benefits of Using PTH

Plated-Through Hole technology offers several advantages, including mechanical strength, reliability, and ease of repair and rework. The robust mechanical connections provided by PTH assemblies make them ideal for applications subjected to vibration and mechanical stress.

Additionally, Plated-Through Hole technology allows for easier manual soldering and inspection processes, facilitating efficient manufacturing and quality control.
