Surface Mount Assembly Service – SMT

Due to the need for miniaturisation, many PCB’s now utilise Surface Mount Technology (SMT). Kasdon is now in its twenty first year of offering this service to a wide range of industries.

Surface Mount Technology Production Line for Printed Circuit Boards

Prototype SMT Line

Kasdon offers absolute flexibility in its services. Surface Mount (SMT) is not really a process which lends itself easily to low volume manufacture. However Kasdon offers a dedicated prototype line and service. This means we can offer a full production representative service for anything from a one off upwards. Lead times start from one day and would more normally be 3 days from availability of PCB & full kit of parts for prototype batches.

Production SMT Lines

We also offer currently 6 High Speed Juki Lines allowing us to tailor our capacity to best meet your needs. We are capable of over 15 Million Placement per month across these 6 lines. This allows us to offer a great service to meet your requirements whether they be a few or a few thousand. With laser guided placement and full vision systems we can offer placement of parts from 0201 to 50 millimetre square. components, ball grid array (BGA), thin quad flat pack (TQFP), plastic leaded chip carrier (PLCC) and many odd form components.
All our SMT assemblies benefit from “state of the art” IR reflow and are all 100% AOI checked prior to further final assembly before shipment to our customers
