Surface Mount and Through Hole PCB Assembly

Surface Mount PCB Assembly

Surface Mount PCB Assembly

Our surface mount department is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and staffed with trained and qualified professionals. High-speed placement machines with quick changeover capabilities make any job cost-effective. In addition, skilled prototype assembly technicians can hand-build one-of-a-kind prototypes to your specifications.

Through Hole PCB Assembly

Through Hole PCB Assembly

Hi-Tek also has full Through-Hole assembly capabilities. For larger order quantities, or assemblies with very high part counts, boards may be soldered using one of our computer-controlled wave solder machines. We have both lead and leadfree (RoHS) machines available. After solder inspection, circuit boards are washed with deionized water using a highly efficient aqueous washing system. For prototype work, or boards that require additional components to be added, assemblies are hand soldered by our skilled technicians, using either a water soluble or no-clean process, as requested.

Surface Mount PCB Assembly

  • 4 SMT Lines
  • Paste or glue screen printing
  • Automated component placement
  • Pre-flow visual inspection
  • Convection reflow soldering
  • Automatic Optical Inspection (AOI)
  • Manual assembly and hand-adds
  • Visual inspection
  • Aqueous washing
  • ESD packaging and shipping

Through Hole PCB Assembly

  • Component preparation
  • Component insertion
  • Pre-flow visual inspection
  • Lead and Lead Free Wave Solder
  • Secondary assembly
  • Visual component and solder joint inspection
  • Final QC Inspection
  • ESD packaging and shipping
  • Accurate 3D solder joint inspection

  • Defect Diagnosis and root cause through real-time 3D data.

  • To ensure bottom termination components are soldered correctly, like BGA or LGA, you need an X-ray inspection tool that provides a clear image through the part.


3D AOI and X-Ray Inspection

As technology continues to evolve toward more advanced miniature packaging, PCB density and complexity has increased dramatically. We have added 3D inspection technology to ensure your product arrives with the highest quality!

Extra Value


With Hi-Tek we have you covered. Literally! We have special services such as conformal coating.



Conformal coating is a protective coating or polymer film 25-75µm thick (50µm typical) that ‘conforms’ to the circuit board topology. Conformal Coating protects your PCB from moisture, dust, salt, chemicals, temperature changes and mechanical abrasion.



During the prototype period there could be several upgrades that need to occur. We understand that deadlines and quick turns are important. In many situations we will be able to perform modifications to components or assemblies, such as adding jumper wires, on-site, saving valuable time for our customers.



Hi-Tek offers inline or completed PCB assembly testing. We require the customer to provide the test fixtures and process instructions. That way we can test the individual requirements needed by each customer to their specifications. Currently we are testing boards for conductivity, power up, final functionally including displays, LEDs, buttons etc… You provide the test equipment we will conduct the test!



No need to go to another supplier to program your ICs or EPROMS. We have on board chip programming capability using multiple firmware platforms – J-Link JTAG, SX Key, Microchip, and Altera. We also have Intelligent Universal Programmers for EPROMS – ChipMax and EMP-21.
