What is PCB assembly
The circuit board before the assembly of electric components is called Printed Circuit Board. After the soldering of all the elements on the board, it is known as Printed circuit Board Assembled, we called PCB assembly. The complete process of component’s assembly is called Printed Circuit Assembly or Printed Circuit Board assembly or PCB board assembly. In this process, different automatic and manual assembly tools are used. We are assembler that offer PCB assembly.
PCB boards cannot perform any function until and unless its assembly is completed. PCB assembly is a process of assembling and soldering electrical parts on a pre-formatted and manufactured circuit board assembly. It is generally engaged with specialist machinery production in mass production.
The traces, also knowns as layers of copper lines, interface the connectors and segments to each other electrically. These run between these highlights allowing the circuit board to operate in an explicitly designed manner.
Flexible Volume PCB Assembly Service
Our PCB assembly services go above and beyond what the average PCB assembly company will do. We offer a variety of flexible circuit board assembly services for the different stages of your product development, including:

What’s the difference between Printed circuit board vs PCB Assembly?
PCB is a printed circuit board because it is made by electronic printing, so it is called a “printed” circuit board. PCB is an important electronic component in the electronic industry, it is electronic base. It is the support of electronic components and the carrier of electrical connection of electronic components. PCB has been widely used in the production of electronic products.
PCB Assembly generally refers to a processing flow, which can also be understood as the finished circuit board, that is, PCBA can only be counted after the processes on the PCB are completed. PCB refers to an empty printed circuit board with no parts on it. The above is the difference between PCB and PCBA.
SMT (surface mounted technology) and DIP (Dual In-line Package) are both ways to integrate parts on the circuit board. The main difference is that SMT does not need to drill holes on PCB, but in dip, it needs to insert the pin into the drilled hole.
SMT (surface mounted technology) mainly uses the mounting machine to mount some micro and small parts on the circuit board. Its production process is PCB positioning, solder paste printing, mounting by the mounting machine, reflow oven, and inspection.
The dip is a “plug-in”, that is to insert parts on the PCB board. It is a kind of plug-in integrated part when some parts are large in size and not suitable for mounting technology. Its main production processes are back glue, plug-in, inspection, wave soldering, plate brushing, and finished inspection.
You should be able to clearly distinguish what is PCB by now? What is PCB assembly? PCBA can basically be regarded as finished goods, because some factories will produce PCB Assembly for shipment, such as selling computer motherboards alone. PCB can only be regarded as a component. the circuit board is an important component in the whole PCB Assembly, but it can not represent PCB Assembly. Because IC, resistor, capacitor, inductor, connector, and other parts must be welded on the PCB to become a finished product, so PCB should only be regarded as a part.
We offer both human and automated PCB assembly services for PCBA Prototype
Our PCB assembly processes use both human and automated services. Larger PCB assembly projects can benefit from the speed and accuracy of our automated service, while PCBA prototypes more detailed work can be checked in-house by one of our expert team members.
Surface Mount Technology assembly (SMT Assembly)
At Hitech, we have capabilities to utilize surface mount technology to assemble your PCBs, using our pick and place machine. We use surface mount assembly technology as it is more cost-efficient and reliable than other, more traditional PCB assembly methods. For example, with SMT assembly more electronics can be included in a smaller space on a PCB. This means PCBs can be customised much more easily and efficiently, and at a much higher volume.
Testing and quality control
To ensure PCB assembly process is fault-free, we use innovative AOI and X-Ray testing and checking. AOI, or automated optical inspection, test PCBs for catastrophic failure and quality defects by autonomously scanning them with a camera. We use automated testing at multiple stages of our PCB assembly process to ensure all our PCBs are of the highest quality.
At Hitech, we utilise the latest advancements in technology for our printed circuit board assembly. Just some of the tech and machines we use includes:
• Wave soldering machine
• Pick and place
• AOI & X-Ray
• Automated conformal coating
• SPI machine
No matter what your printed circuit board assembly needs are, we always aim to deliver efficient, dependable solutions. For more information about our services, do not hesitate to get in touch with us today for a no-obligation quote.
