The conventional leaded components that are soldered through the PCB, have been the mainstay of the electronics industry for many years. Despite the continuing movement towards surface mount technology (SMT) and the miniaturisation and increased complexity of circuit boards, through-hole assembly still has a significant part to play. Even on predominantly surface mount assemblies, there is usually an element of through hole components required.
Through-Hole Technology Specialists
Kasdon Electronics has a vastly experienced workforce that specialises in hand assembly and hand soldering of components. In addition, Kasdon can offer automated component insertion of both axial and radial components and automated dual wave flow solder.
Our staff are highly trained to the IPC 610 Standard which means that they are able to provide consistently high-quality through hole PCB assembly. Inevitably, with through-hole jobs, there is an element of interpretation of the customers’ requirements and it is the attention to detail and careful recording of the specific requirements of each assembly that we are able to consistently provide high-quality products.
In addition to offering all types of through-hole assembly, Kasdon also provides useful additional services for the final finishing of the product, such as conformal coating and complete PCB encapsulation (potting are both ‘in-house’ options).
