SMT Assembly

Altek Electronics’ state-of-the-art facility offers our customers flexibility with both Prototype PCB and Production requirements. We manufacture all circuit board assemblies in accordance with three classes of the Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies (IPC-A-610). Our SMT placement lines can produce either RoHS compliant lead-free assemblies or we can use traditional tin-lead solder in the printed board assembly process. Our circuit boards are assembled with exceptional quality, utilizing the latest technology in surface mount equipment. SMT component placement sizes range from 01005 to 2.2 inches enhanced by a placement accuracy of 15um at 3 Sigma.


Whether we are prototyping circuit boards or producing medium to high volumes, we are committed to quality and continuous improvement. Our capabilities include automated and detailed visual assembly inspection, cleaning and functional testing.

  • Quality and on-time delivery are our paramount objectives
  • Circuitcam software creates machine programs from CAD data, reducing the risk of human error
  • 7 placement machines provide flexibility to run multiple jobs simultaneously, or use multiple machines to increase output on one large job
  • Two 3-D AOI machines allow us to verify the smallest components and provide for unprecedented quality control
  • Our Yxlon X-Ray machine inspects BGA placements to ensure proper alignment and reflow
  • We can support batch sizes ranging from less than 10 piece prototypes, to full production runs in the thousands
