* PCBBee's SMT PCB Assembly Procedures

1. Material Preparation
Whether it is components or solder paste, our suppliers are all long-term stable quality partners. PCBbee's professional sourcing team will prepare PCB bare board, electronic components and stencil according to customer's requirements. We will keep in touch with the customers, without the customer's confirmation, we will not arbitrarily change any parts.

2. Solder Paste Printing
The solder paste is a mixture of tiny beads of metal solder and tacky flux which are used to connect the components with the pads on PCB boards. We use automatic solder paste printer to improve production efficiency, reduce defect rate and cost. After this process, a layer of solder paste is laid on the pads of PCB board.

3. Solder Paste Inspection
Many SMT assembly quality defects are related to the quality of solder paste printing. PCBbee's solder paste inspection adopts laser non-contact advanced automatic measurement method, high precision, fast speed, and little influence of human factors and environment. Monitoring the thickness and change trend of solder paste is the key to improve SMT assembled PCBA boards' production quality and reduce repair cost.

4. SMT Placement
Then the PCB is put into the pick and place machine where we use Siemens high speed machines to place the components into the solder paste on pads. Minimum components 01005, maximum 56mm*56mm. Support Maximum PCB size 510mm*460mm. The placement speed is up to 79000cph.

5. Reflow Soldering
After pick & place machines, the PCBs are put into the reflow soldering oven where the solder paste will melt and solidify and the electronic components will be firmly fixed on the pads of PCB boards. PCBbee's reflow soldering ovens have 10 temperature zones and we always design and apply different temperature profiles for different PCBA projects.

6. First Article Inspection
We have experienced staff to do the first article inspection, to check whether it is fully consistent with the customer's data requirements, whether the components are installed correctly and so on. The first inspection inspection is an effective measure to find problems as soon as possible and prevent the PCBA products from being scrapped in batches. Through the first article inspection, it can be found that if there are some systematic reasons, such as installation positioning errors, wrong reading of drawings. For PCBA batch production, first article usually means prototype boards.

7. Automated Optical Inspection (AOI)
After reflow soldering, PCB boards will be tested by AOI machine. It can effectively detect the polarity errors, leaks, deviations, reverses, damage, empty welding and so on. It is fast and precise and can ensure the quality control of SMT production. PCBA boards that fail the test will be sent back for repair until they are qualified.

8. X-Ray Testing
The AOI machine can not test circuit boards with BGA, CSP, LGA components, then we need to use X-Ray testing to monitor the SMT assembly production process. It can timely correct the position of components on the board, and prevent the occurrence of welding problems(open circuit, short circuit, leak welding, etc).
