Global SMT Placement Equipment Market: Introduction

Surface-mount Technology (SMT) is an automation technology used to manufacture electronic circuits by placing electronic components such as capacitor, resistor, inductor, fan, etc., onto a printed circuit board (PCB). The mounting of electronic components is done on a PCB through SMT placement equipment. They are also known as pick-and-place machines. In general, SMT placement equipment have high resolution verification cameras and linear encoders that help these machines to accurately place electronic components onto a PCB, prior to soldering. In general, the efficiency of a SMT placement machine is measured in components per hour (CPH). CPH is the rate at which electronic components are picked by a SMT placement equipment machine and placed on a PCB.
