HETECH has invested significantly in new machinery over the past 18 months. The acquisition of a SMT (Surface Mount) machine, a EcoSelect 250 selective soldering system (lead free) and a multi zone convection reflow oven has enabled us to build an efficient and reliable Samsung SMT manufacturing line. The result is a more efficient and reliable manufacturing process that produces high quality and cost effective circuit boards.
Volumes greater than 100 units per month make SMT manufacturing more cost effective than through-hole manufacturing. As a result, most of our products have been redesigned and updated. However, we have discovered some SMT products, for example capacitors, are not well suited for power applications and remain through-hole.
