Here is page 2 of our tour of the Kingston Factory.
Here is some equipment that you get a peek of on your way into the SMT manufacturing room.
Here is our Tour Guide Louis Kaneshiro explains SMT technology and about the entire process. You can probably read what it says on the plaque itself.
Here is one of many stencils that are used in order to pour solder through and get to the right contact points onto the PCB.
Here are the first steps of the process picking and placing the components onto the solder. As you can see, at this point the modules are simply bare PCBs
Here is an image of the PCBs going into the machine... I love the big red emergency button too...
Here are the machines placing the IC's and other components onto the PCBs to start assembling the modules.
And this is what it looks like once it is done placing them onto the PCB
Here are the modules going into the heater/cooler
The next page is a continuation of the SMT process...
