Surface Mount Assembly (SMT)
Norcott has invested extensively over the last few years in its surface mount technology (SMT) capability, ensuring that we have the latest equipment necessary to underline our commitment to be at the leading edge of electronics manufacturing.
With two independent surface mount lines, Norcott is able to provide a flexible manufacturing facility capable of supporting our Rapid Prototype service and larger regular production requirements.
By investing in the latest equipment Norcott is able to provide its customers with the ability to place the latest components. Our Juki 2060L placement machine is capable of placing components ranging from 0603, 0402, 0201 and even down to 01005’s.
It can also handle component placements up to 74mm square.
Our re-flow oven uses forced air circulation rather than infrared emitters. This provides an even distribution of heat with the precise thermal control required to successfully solder a wide range of component and laminate types.
Norcott has also invested heavily in equipment used to control the placement and process quality of our surface mount product, by installing the most up to date Mirtec MV-3L AOI Inspection equipment. This has the latest 5-camera technology capable of detecting wrong and missing component placements. It also has the capability to look for poor solder joints and solder bridges.
Process control is also of paramount importance and our Dage XD7500 Xi DAT micro-focus X-Ray system ensures that we can inspect our placement integrity of the most complex of BGA devices.
