Dive deeper into Assembly Lines:
What is Through hole technology?

Through-Hole Technology (THT) is a method in electronic assembly where component leads are inserted into drilled holes on a printed circuit board (PCB) and then soldered on the opposite side, as opposed to being mounted directly on the surface like in Surface Mount Technology (SMT). THT is commonly used for components requiring strong mechanical connections or larger-sized components.

How do we do it?

Our assembly processes at Indic EMS Electronics seamlessly integrate both manual and automated through-hole component insertion methods, offering the flexibility needed to efficiently handle a range of component sizes and complexities, tailoring our approach to the unique requirements of each project. Employing advanced wave soldering technology for through-hole components ensures uniform and dependable solder joints, enhancing the overall durability and performance of the assembled PCBs.

Why Indic?

With extensive experience in electronic manufacturing, our teams possess the expertise to handle a diverse range of through-hole assembly requirements. Our knowledge ensures the success of projects across various industries.

The combination of rigorous quality control measures and adherence to industry standards guarantees the reliability and performance of the final assembled products.

Our Capabilities
Thermal Profiling

This is used to discover the temperature profile that works best for the through hole PCB and to point out defects such as insufficient solder, misaligned components, marginal joints and more.

Functional Testing

Used to authenticate board operations and behavior, functional testing helps to detect faulty component values, functional and parametric failures.

Frequently Asked Questions

The usefulness of THT vs. SMT production lines depends on the application: THT is more useful for high-power or high-stress applications where strong mechanical bonds are crucial. SMT is preferred for modern, compact devices requiring high-density component placement and faster production times. SMT allows for smaller PCB designs and can accommodate both sides of the board, making it more suitable for mass production of electronic devices with space constraints.

In engineering, THT (Through-Hole Technology) refers to a traditional method of assembling electronic circuits by mounting components with leads on a PCB and soldering them through holes, providing strong mechanical bonds.

The through-hole technology process involves drilling holes into a PCB, inserting the leads of components through these holes, and then soldering the leads to the board. This process is often used for components that require stronger physical connections.

THT stands for Through-Hole Technology in electronics, a method of PCB assembly where components have leads that are inserted through holes drilled in the board and soldered to pads on the opposite side.
