Surface Mount Technology

Our automated surface mount production system consistently delivers top quality assemblies for a diverse range of technologies.

With our heavy emphasis on Statistical Process Control (SPC) we systematically eliminate sources of potential quality issues and continually analyse our systems to ensure that our customers receive first class assemblies – but don’t take our word for it, contact us for a factory tour!

Our in-line SMT manufacturing lines consist of:

  • Ekra In-Line Fully Automatic Screen Printers – With repeatability performance of ± 12,5µm @ 6 Sigma the X4 offers the highest level of precision available.
  • Samsung Pick & Place – Eleven SMT placement machines.  These machines are 100% optical for the placement of fine pitch QFP’s, BGA’s, CSP and other new generation packaging technologies.  Within the past five years, QC has invested heavily in latest generation machines allowing increased throughput as well as micro placement down to 01005 (0201 regularly placed).
  • Mirtec AOI – The very best in automated optical inspection equipment providing consistent in-line monitoring of all surface mount assemblies.
  • Real Time SPC – The best equipment is only as good as the best operators, and the best operators need real-time feedback. Combining SPC with experience enables potential problems to be corrected immediately.
