Hi Friends, today we are going to discuss a topic about the difference between SMT components and plug-in components for SMT processing. The following are some experiences from Qihe team smt setup engineers . If you have some more content you want to share, welcome to leave a reply below this page .
Advantages of using patch components for SMT processing:
- Reduce product size:
The volume of SMD components is only about 1/10 of that of traditional plug-in components;
Generally, after SMT processing, the volume of electronic products is reduced by 40% to 60%.
- Improve production efficiency and reduce costs:
SMT patch processing is easy to automate,
Improve production efficiency, save materials, energy, equipment, manpower, time, etc.,
Reduce costs by 30% to 50%.
- Light weight:
The weight of SMD components is only 10% of that of traditional plug-in components;
Generally, after using SMT, the weight of the product is reduced by 60% to 80%.
- High reliability and strong anti-vibration ability.
- Good high-frequency characteristics, reducing electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.
- The solder joint defect rate is low.
Advantages of using plug-in components for SMT processing:
- All are power devices,
High heat dissipation requirements,
Its performance is much higher than that of patch components,
It can keep the performance of the product more stable and lasting.
- Low failure rate,
Can intuitively feedback bad,
No special equipment is required.
- Better anti-turbulence performance,
In the face of high frequency,
high-amplitude vibrations and jolts,
It can maintain the stability of the product better than SMD components.

WHAT IS SMT PROCESS？
There are mainly three steps in SMT assembly line process flow： solder paste printing, components placement and reflow soldering.
- Solder Paste Printing
Its function in SMT line process is to print the solder-free paste on the pads of the PCB to prepare for the soldering of the components. The equipment used is a screen printing machine, located at the forefront of the SMT production line.
- Components Placement
Its function is to accurately install the surface mount components on the fixed position of the PCB. The equipment used is a placement machine, located behind the screen printing machine in the SMT production line.
- Reflow Soldering
Its function in SMT manufacturing line is to melt the solder paste so that the surface mount components and the PCB board are firmly bonded together. The equipment used is a reflow oven, located behind the placement machine in the fully automatic SMT production line.
WHAT IS SMT pick and place machine？
SMT (Surface Mounted Technology) is a comprehensive system engineering technology, which covers substrates, design, equipment, components, assembly processes, production accessories and management. When it comes to SMT pick and place machines, the automatic SMT production line requires automatic loading and unloading machine, automatic solder paste printing machine, placement machine, reflow soldering machine, AOI inspection equipment, connecting table, etc. For these SMT assembly line equipment, Qihe SMT can offer you machines in prototype SMT line, small SMT production line, mass production SMT line at low SMT line cost.

WHAT IS SMT ASSEMBLY LINE？
With the development of technology, future electronic products will be lighter, smaller and thinner. Traditional assembly technology can no longer meet the requirements of high-precision and high-density assembly. A new type of PCB assembly technology-SMT (Surface Mount Technology) has emerged. SMT Assembly is the use of automated machines to assemble electronic components on the surface of the circuit board. Its density, high speed, standardization and other characteristics occupies an absolute advantage in the field of circuit assembly technology. In addition, SMT assembly has a wide range of uses.
