Millison Technology has developed robust techniques and procedures to convert PTH boards to SMT. We see this process as a core competency within our business.
The product conversion process is handled by a team of people covering all aspects of the project including:
- project manager
- design engineers
- CAD designers
- production engineers
- procurement officers
Layout of the PCB is critical in the conversion process. Where possible, the conversion is to the IPC international standards such as:
- IPC-2220 Design Standards for Printed Boards
- IPC-SM-782A Surface Mount Design Standard and Land Pattern Standard
This has proven to result in the highest degree of 'design for manufacture' and 'lowest cost of ownership' being achieved for the newly SMT converted product.
