RoHS Compliant Lead Free PCBA Process
- Design: At FS Technology, we recognize that the design phase is critical to delivering top-quality lead free PCB/PCBA boards. Our experienced team of designers meticulously considers every aspect, starting from the project’s inception to circuit design. Lead free projects differ from traditional lead-based materials, necessitating careful attention to the following factors during the design process: Melting Point Analysis, Pad Design Optimization, Post-Processing Considerations.
- Component Selection: At FS Technology, our meticulous selection of components plays a crucial role in delivering exceptional turnkey services tailored to your business needs. Our dedicated procurement team is equipped with the expertise to handle this critical aspect. However, if you prefer to handle component procurement independently, it is important to consider the following factors with utmost professionalism: Lead-Free Compatibility, Temperature Characteristics, Package Type, Environmental Considerations, Brand and Supplier.
- Bare Board Fabrication: This involves creating lead free PCB using a variety of techniques including etching, drilling, and plating. The boards are made from a layer of copper-clad laminate, a composite material consisting of a layer of copper foil on a glass-reinforced epoxy substrate.
- Component Assembly: Involves SMT assembly and through-hole assembly, both aimed at placing components on the circuit board’s surface. This process necessitates the utilization of solder paste. FS Technology initiates by applying lead-free solder paste to the board’s solder joints, followed by mounting or inserting the components. The assembly then proceeds to the next stage once it successfully passes the SPI test.
- Lead-free soldering: Is utilized to solidify the solder paste, creating a strong solder joint. The choice between wave soldering and reflow soldering depends on the assembly process.
- Testing: The inspection of PCBs is carried out throughout the production process. After the lead free PCBA boards are manufactured, they need to be functionally tested to verify whether they can operate normally.
