How the PCB Assembly Process Works

Our assembly lines are geared towards flexibility. With multi-flex lines that allow for scaling and board sizes. Our assembly line allows us to work on any sized board without sacrificing speed and reliability. See these machines in person, book a tour, and see how Altest is one of the top PCBA companies in Silicon Valley.

The professional screen printing system we use is one of the world‘s most successful high-performance printers. Using the newest servo drives for all relevant movements including integrated linear scales leads to the best-in-class alignment repeatability and process capability. 

Our reflow ovens provide optimized lead-free processing for the ultimate in productivity and efficiency. The exclusive closed-loop convection control provides precise heating and cooling, programmable heat transfer, and reduced nitrogen consumption

SELECTIVE

SOLDER

Our selective soldering systems are based on a modular platform. Depending on the application and on the throughput requirements called for, additional flux, preheat and solder modules can be integrated into the system. This allows for the use of quickly soldering boards without the need for pre-manufactured molds. While we do have other soldering machines this machine allows for the most amount of flexibility.
