SMT – Surface Mount Technology
Simpro has extensive experience with surface mount components. With state of the art production equipment and highly skilled employees , we are able to undertake production of just about everything from prototypes to large series .
Our SMT production lines handles components from 0201 size ( ca.0.6×0.3mm ) and up to 90x30mm. Simpro has two independent SMT assembly lines optimised for low to medium volume production, of which the latest was installed in autumn 2011. The total theoretical assembly rate (IPC-9850) for the two lines are ~150 000 components per hour .
All PCB are laser marked with unique manufacturing ID and 2D bar code, ensuring traceability through all stages of production.
Simpro has 2 AOI (Automatic Optical Inspection) machines; one integrated in the SMT assembly line, the other as a standalone station. The use of AOI allow detection and correction before soldering; together with inspection of the soldered PCA
Simpro uses nitrogen when doing selective and wave soldering. Upon request, nitrogen will be used in connection with Re-flow soldering.
