A Customer’s Visit in Our Surface Mount Technology Plant

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2019

Mike, one of our clients visited our company on April 2 and inspected our surface mount technology plant.

During the tour of the plant, Mike was impressed with the plant operation as all machinery and equipment in good order and the factory employees dedicated to their tasks and were hardworking. Mike complimented our company on both the efficiency of the plant and our hardworking employees.

During the visit, Mike asked about specific process of surface mount technology, as he was overwhelmed by the quantity and operation of the machinery and wished to understand the process better.

The supervisor in charge of the plant explained the entire process to Mike which included the painting with solder paste, the machinery layout and reflow soldering. What Mike thought was really impressive was the real AOT testing and could not help complimenting us on the process.

Mike said that Best Technology was well suited to provide his requirements and would support Best for this. He believed that Best Technology can create greater value to clients as a result of the efficiency of the SMT manufacturing process.

Quality has always been Bests core value, and we prefer to losing quantity rather than compromising quality, and we are dedicated to form reliable relationships with our clients. We are appreciative of Mike’s positive comments about our company and we will continually strive to meet our clients expectation.

Welcome Our Customer from India

Thursday, January 10th, 2019

On January 9, 2019, we had a visitor from India. Best Technology thanks for having such an excellent partner.

John talked a lot with our general manager Peter and the members of business development department. John brought the material of SMT for us and hope we can make SMT for him. He was satisfied with our company culture and signed his name on the company cultural wall after the meeting came to an end and we took a picture with the client in the office of Best Technology.

5 Benefits of Putting Nitrogen into Reflow Oven

Monday, January 7th, 2019

The reflow oven is one of the indispensable equipments in SMT. Putting the PCB with components goes through the reflow oven then the solder paste adhering on the printed circuit board will melt. After the solder paste getting cold, the components will adhere to the PCB stably.

After you have learned something about reflow oven, have you ever know how to make the reflow oven work better? Here are 3 benefits of putting nitrogen into reflow oven listed as following:

√ It is able to make the surface tension of solder paste get smaller which is good for the components adhering to the PCB more easily.

√ It can decrease the oxidization in a certain. Because the nitrogen is a kind of inert gas which is hard to produce chemical compound.

√ Reducing the rate of void. Because the rate of void decreases with oxidation.

√ Nowadays, some manufacturers also develop to put nitrogen in wave soldering oven. It is able to decrease the speed of oxidation of liquid tin in the bath. As the slag of tin will be formed when the liquid tin contacts with air. After that, the slag of tin will adhere on the printed circuit board. If it happens to the connect between two spots of tin, it will cause short circuit.

√ It can increase the rate of tin feeding of pin components and then they will combine with the printed circuit board firmly.

The Application of AOI in Reflow Inspection

Monday, December 24th, 2018

Today, we continue to talk about AOI technology applied in the PCB manufacturing. The component mounting inspection is followed by the reflow inspection, if you would like to know more details, please click The Application of AOI in Component Mounting Inspection to know.

AOI can be divided into two types: preventing problem phase and finding problem phase. The inspections after solder paste printing and SMT belongs to preventing problem phase and the inspections followed by reflow soldering are finding problem phase.

In the back end inspection of reflow soldering, AOI technology is able to detect some problems as below:

√ whether the components are missed, deviated or skewed.

√ The defects of polarity.

√ Whether solder joints are correct.

√ Whether the solder paste is enough.

√ Whether there is short circuit in soldering etc..

The back end inspection of reflow soldering is the most prevailing choice for AOI now. Because all of the assembly errors can be found at this process, so that the quality of printed circuit boards are able to step forward to a higher level.

The Application of AOI in Component Mounting Inspection

Monday, December 17th, 2018

In the previous articles, we have talked about PCB inspection and solder paste printing inspection. To find more information of the details, please check: The Application of AOI in PCB Inspection and The Application of AOI in Solder Paste Printing Inspection.

The component mounting requires high precision of equipment and the common defects including forgetting to mount the component, mounting the component in a wrong way, polarity reversal etc.. AOI technology not only can find the defects above, but also can check the connection dense spacing and the solder paste on the pads of BGA component.

 

Since the component mounting is followed by the reflow soldering, the testing after component mounting is usually called front end inspection of reflow soldering. However, it is meaningless from the perspective of quality guarantee. Because the defects can not be found in the reflow oven. The solder tin is able to correct by itself after melting in the reflow oven, so the the mounting displacement and solder printing status can not be detected on the substrate after soldering. In fact, the front end inspection of reflow soldering is incredible significant for quality guarantee as that the component mounting of all parts can be inspected before reflow soldering.

The alarm will be sent out if the defects are found by AOI technology. After that, the visual inspection will be carried out by the operator. If miss some components at this stage, it can be corrected by tweezers. After the visual inspection operator repaired the same problem for many times, he will ask the person who charge the production equipment to reconfirm whether the setting of the machine is reasonable. The feedback information is very helpful to enhance the production quality and it can improve it in a very short time.

New Automatic Solder paste Printer Adopted in SMT & PCBA

Thursday, August 25th, 2016

Great news! We (Best Technology) had adopted a new Automatic Solder paste printer for SMT /PCBA since Aug 25th, 2016. We use “G5” which is No. 1 brand in domestic market, made by a Chinese company, the repeated position accuracy is +/-0.01mm, and printing accuracy is +/-0.025mm.

Everybody know the most important element which will affect the quality of SMT /PCBA is the solder past printing quality. Excellent solder paste printing is the base for excellent quality of final SMT /PCBA quality, esp. for the small components such as SMD Chips with small size as 0402, 0201, 01005; IC with small pitch package such QFN, LGA, BGA; Connector with 0.25mm, 0.3mm, 0.40mm pitch.

Here are some pictures of new Automatic Solder paste printer.

Simple Solderability Test Experiment

Saturday, August 23rd, 2014

As is well known, solderability is very important for any type of printed circuit boards, we must do solderability test of each batch PCB we made. In this way we can inspect the weldability of the PCB before we go ahead the assembly process, much helpful for SMT.

In our circuit board manufacturing workshop, we have professional equipment to do that testing. But normally these equipment was expensive, and a lot of people want to know a simple and cheap way to do that solderability testing, so today we are doing a simple solderability test and show you all the steps.

1. Take a small solder pot, plug in the power, turn on the switch and heat the solder pot to a certain high temperature(about 8 minutes).

2. Put a tin bar to the solder pot, then you can see the tin bar is begin to melting, slowly into liquid tin, then more and more.

3. After few minutes, there will be enough melting liquid tin in the solder pot to do this test.

4.Use a tweezers to pick up a PCB circuit, first clean the PCB with rubbing alcohol. Because the unclear surface or the oxidation of the PCB will affect the test result.Pick-up-the-PCBclean the PCB
5. This is the key step of this test, put the PCB into the solder pot, depth about 2 mm,time 4-5 seconds is ok. Then you can see the tin will go into the hole of the PCB.

6. Take out the PCB from the solder pot and put it into the cold water. After few seconds, you can see the experimental effect.
