So, you've got yourself a successful manufacturing and engineering business, but suddenly need to ramp up business and start producing even more products for your clients. There can be two routes for this: either you start building up an in-house manufacturing department to build your products, or have someone else do it for you. Likely, you don't want to spend tons of money and would rather save it as well time, so that normally means going with the latter decision.

Improving Quality of PCB Assembly Through Solder Ability Testing

Posted by Laura Austin on Thu, Sep 20, 2012 @ 07:00 AM

All electronics, whether it be mobile smart phones or next generation computer systems have what is known as a printed circuit board. PCB for short, this is designed to support and connect electronic components inside the hardware. The conductive pathways found on the printed circuit board is wired together through the use of soldering. The soldering attaches metal, generally lead, gold or copper, between the different circuit boards in order to properly connect all equipment together inside the device. Inferior connections result in a loss of signal, poor circuit transfers and possible breakage. When it comes to PCB assembly, having impeccable soldering is essential, in order to establish and produce equipment with longevity.
