Prototype Pcb Assembly

Prototype PCB Assembly

Prototype PCB Assembly is a specialized service offered by Bester, catering to the unique needs of our customers in the printed circuit board industry. As the name suggests, this service focuses on the production of custom-made prototypes of PCBs, which are essential for testing and validating new electronic designs before they are mass-produced. With our expertise and state-of-the-art equipment, we ensure that these prototypes are assembled with utmost precision and accuracy, adhering to industry standards and specific customer requirements. Our experienced team of professionals meticulously handles the entire assembly process, from sourcing the components to soldering them onto the PCBs, ensuring that each prototype is meticulously crafted to meet the highest quality standards. By availing our Prototype PCB Assembly service, customers can significantly reduce time-to-market, minimize design errors, and gain valuable insights into the functionality and performance of their electronic products.

PCB Assembly Process

One of the most important factors in the overall efficiency of each PCB assembly project is the client’s understanding of our process. The number of steps involved in the PCB assembly process depends upon the specific nature of the project in question, as illustrated below, and each of these steps is explained briefly in the following sections.

DFM Check

DFM checks our client’s PCB design and looks for issues that may influence the final product negatively, such including missing, redundant or potentially problematic features. And the consistency across different design documents like BoM and Gerbers.


Inspect all incoming materials and handle quality problems before the SMT assembly process. Bester IQC and procurement team will check for model numbers, shape, sample test, etc to ensure all parts used are of the highest quality.

Solder Paste Printing

Solder paste printing is the actual first step in PCB assembly manufacturing process that can apply solder paste to the appropriate, necessary areas on the PCB using stencil and squeegees.

SMD Components assembly

Pick and Place SMD components to the programmed location at high speed using automated Pick&Place machines after solder paste is correctly applied to bare PCBs.

Reflow Soldering

After SMD components are placed on the boards, they are sent through reflow machines to have the solder paste to reflow, attach components and create permanent solder joints.

THT Components Assembly

Pick and Place THT components to the programmed location at high speed using automated Pick&Place machines for the wave soldering process.

wave soldering

Wave soldering is a method of PCB Assembly that involves sending boards on a conveyor through a wave of molten solder that is used to attach through-hole components to the boards.

AOI & X-ray

Inspect and verify that no mistakes have been made and that all parts have been correctly placed using automated optical inspection(AOI) and X-Ray technology and machines.

Final inspection & repairing

The final inspections include visual inspection by our quality assurance team and post AOI inspection for flaws and functions. It’s also known as functional test.

QC / packaging

All assembled boards are packaged per clients’ request in anti-static packaging and be prepared for shipping under our QC team.
