Tips for Entry Level SMT Production from Fritsch

1) Consider the overall process. For a production you need:

  • Stencil printing (solder paste / circuit board / SMD stencil)
  • Placement machine (SMD components)
  • Reflow oven

2) Which tasks could arise for the device later and how easy it is to react to them i.e.

  • Upgrade ability of the feeders
  • Upgrade ability of the camera/s
  • Upgrade ability of the nozzles etc

3) Plan the delivery time for machines and accessories. Due to the current shortage of materials, the delivery time is currently higher.  So order in time.
