Surface Mount Carriers

Surface Mount Carriers

Model Number: SMT-CARRIER

Stencils Unlimited manufactures surface mount carriers (also known as SMT carriers) in our state-of-the -art facility in Tualatin, Oregon. Our regular surface mount carriers are made out of Durostone® or Ricocel. However, depending on the application we may use high Tg FR4 or even stainless steel to reduce manufacturing cost and lead time. This type of SMT fixtures are only recommended when building a few prototype printed circuit boards.

Surface mount carriers are very versatile, they can be used to support, protect and transport PCBs of different shapes and sizes including flex PCBs through the entire SMT process.

  • Streamline SMT process
  • Reduce setup time
  • Improve board handling
  • Reduce soldering defects
  • Reduce board warping
  • Reduce labor cost

Whether you are using an automatic stencil printer or a prototype stencil, an automatic pick and place machine or a pair of tweezers, an automatic 8-zone reflow oven or a toaster oven, sometimes you just need a surface mount carrier to get the job done.

  • Process PCBs that are too small for conveyor systems.
  • Process PCBs that too thick or too thin.
  • Process odd-shape boards.
  • Process flimsy boards. Flex and rigid-flex PCBs usually require support during the SMT process.
  • Process PCBs with SMT components too close to the edge of boards.
