    Utilization of a stencil is ensuring soldering paste to be applied to all of the parts where components are to be inserted. The mechanical fixture is utilized for holding the PCB and stencil onto a single place. Soldering paste is then applied at intended areas through an applicator and is spread. After removal of the stencil, soldering paste is leftover from desired locations.

    1. Picking and Placement

    A robotic gadget is utilized for picking the components and placing them on to its specific location on the board which is then soldered. The component’s position is to be accurate over soldering paste.

    1. Soldering Reflow

    The board is moved over a conveyer belt through the oven. Heating is undergone at high temperatures for melting soldering paste. The next step is cooling down PCB for soldering paste solidification resulting in the strongest joints among the board and components.

    1. Quality Control and Inspection

    The PCB is then inspected manually and through machines by inspectors for checking connectivity and floors which may result in malfunctioning. Different inspection methods are used such as optical inspection, manual inspection, and x-ray inspection.

    1. Functional Test

    The manufactured PCB is going to perform as per requirements under normal circumstances. However, grounded on the standards set in the medical industry a functional test of PCB is conducted to check its validity. After the test is conducted and approved, PCB is washed for removal of any flux, dirt, and oil, etc. This is also critical because of its application in the medical industry.
