Surface Mount Technology



At KIB Electronics we define ourselves by our World Class Electronics Manufacturing Services.  The single most key component to our electronics manufacturing capabilities is our Surface Mount Technology lines.  It defines who we are and what we do.  We designed our SMT line to be fluid, flexible, and highly maintainable.  We don’t believe in downtime and neither should you.  This is why we deployed Yamaha Z:LEX line, giving us the world’s fastest in its class, 1 head solution, designed to provide both high speed and versatility.  Accompanying our Z:LEX machines are Quad QSP2 Placement machines, Screen Printers, AOI Photo verification systems.  These devices work in conjunction with our automated Heller ovens, create a complete, end to end solution.


Our PCB Process flow contains several additional elements that allow us to provide excellent build quality and turn around.  It begins with our stencils, ensuring each stencil contains the proper solder coating, thickness, and aperture.  This allows us to analyze and diagnose any possible failures, giving us a direct ability to maintain quality control in the event those rare anomalies occur.  Once our stencils are verified, we move to the SMT placment process which runs on our Yamaha Z:LEX systems.  The Z:LEX SMT machines offer us great flexibility with expansion and versatility.  With it’s 90,000 CPH, it’s capable of fast throughput, in addition to being able to handle a wide range of board sizes.

Our automated assembly lines take our boards from our Yamaha Z:LEX machines and feed directly to our Heller Ovens, to initiate detailed board profiling.  Each board builds are profiled with specific temperature times to soak, create peak heat and cool down times.  All boards then transition to our AOI inspection machines for an automated verification process.  We look for solder quality, solder joint quality, pad placement and part markings, to ensure quality of our PCB manufacturing process.

Whether it's a new project, completing a project, or a re-design, reach out and let's get it completed.

Need PCB Enclosures/Mounting?

Whether your PCB needs require weather resistance or customized enclosures, KIB Electronics can help accommodate. With an injection molding facility and 3-D Printing capabilities on-site, we have the ability to prototype and manufacture customized mounting and enclosure solutions.  For cost-consideration, pre-built–or generic– enclosures/mounting solutions may be a better fit for your product, let us know and we’ll work with your team.
