Process: PCB Assembly, Surface Mount


Surface mounting is a method of PCB assembly whereby electronic components are mounted directly to the surface of the board. This has become a much more prominent assembly method in comparison to through-hole technology, with the latter generally reserved only for components that cannot be surface mounted. Therefore, it is not uncommon for PCB boards to undergo both surface mount and through-hole assembly depending on the components required. Surface mount technology has enabled much more rapid production of PCBs. Surface mounted components also tend to be much smaller than their through-hole counterparts, owing to the fact that they do not require long leads. Therefore, the overall size of surface-mounted PCBs tends to be smaller. Whilst this is certainly beneficial, it also heightens the risk of defects occurring within production and therefore, surface-mounted PCBs must undergo a higher level of testing to ensure that they meet required standards.

PCB Assembly, Surface Mount projects for quote

  1. Drawings count: 3

    Electronic / Electrical-PCB Assembly, Surface Mount

    This buyer has an order to place for this design of PCB which will be used as part of a new keyboard add-on design for a computer or laptop. Quotes are sought for 30 off at this time, and once full production is successful, this may lead to larger orders in future. Pricing is of the highest priority for this enquiry. The buyer has received a quote from China; however, they are keen to keep manufacturing within the UK.

  2. Drawings count: 2

    Electronic / Electrical-PCB Assembly, Surface Mount

    This lighting manufacturer who specialises in light projection, currently spends approximately £25,000 a year on outsourced electronics processes. They have recently developed a new range of lighting equipment and would like to hear from UK suppliers for the initial - and possibly ongoing - production of these units. There is an immediate order to place for this enquiry, with turnaround being of utmost importance for the pre-production run. This work is expected to be repeated on a yearly basis going forward.

  3. Drawings count: 3

    Electronic / Electrical-PCB Assembly, Surface Mount

    This new Qimtek client is looking for a suppler to manufacture 1 off PCB board as shown in the photographs provided. However, this is to be a non-working demonstration prop, so only needs to look like the photo - no testing is required. Those that are interested in being considered for this job are asked to make contact with the buyer directly to discuss; in addition, this could result in further opportunities in future once quality and reliability have been proven. Because of the urgent nature of this enquiry, if a suitable quote is found quickly, the work will be awarded early.
