Plated Through Hole Assembly
Since opening for business in 1974 EMA has been manufacturing printed circuit assemblies utilising plated through hole components. Our manufacturing team is highly experienced in assembling both plated through hole and mixed technology (a combination of plated through hole and surface mount assembly methodologies).
As technology moves on todays assemblies typically contain a heavy bias towards surface mount loaded components, but through hole parts are still commonplace components in the industry. With this in mind EMA compliments it’s through hole service with lead free wave soldering of PCBA’s with this technology type.
As well as wave solder technology we also have the capability to manually attach through hole components. This alternative method of assembly can a very advantageous for EMA and it’s customers as it can be cost effective option for low volume runs.
All of our soldering operators are trained to SVQ level 2 and work to IPC-A-610 Class 2 & 3. Our manual soldering stations have been optimised to ensure best handling practices are guaranteed.
