PCB Assembly, whether Surface Mount or PTH PCB Assembly, encompasses a number of meticulous and complicated processes which are done by expert technicians of electronic contract manufacturing companies like Denis Ferranti with the help of state-of-the-art equipments. Here are some terms and phrases associated with assembling of Printed Circuit Boards for electronic components.
Pin-Through Hole PCB Assembly: This technology of PCB assembling has been in vogue for long and entails a manual process of inserting and soldering terminals through holes on the PCB. A reflow machine is used for the soldering part whereby the liquid solder is made to flow beneath the PCB.
Surface-Mount Technology: In this process, a number of pin insertion machines are used and the production process is done mechanically from start till the end. Hence right from soldering to assembling of the components on the surface and fusing of the solder paste to the electronic components machines like chip placer, pick and place and large placer are used.
PCB Population: This is done by Pick and Place robots which come with reels comprising the electronic components which are placed by the robot arm on the surface of the PCB for Surface Mount assembly or into holes for the Pin-through Hole technology. Populating PCBs in the right manner is required in order to ensure that the electronic components are working with the optimum potential and just the way they should.
PCB Enclosures: Enclosures are designed in order to integrate PCBs and electronic components preserve them safely. They may be of various types, namely, hand-held, wall mount, desktop enclosures, instrument enclosures, potting boxes, multipurpose enclosures and DIN Boxes.
