Single or double-sided serial production-quality SMDs are assembled using a fully automated machine. Components must be at least size 0402 and have a contact spacing greater than 0.4 mm
Through-Hole Technology (THT) components are soldered by hand or by a selective soldering machine.
The delivery time for the assembly of your printed circuit boards depends on the number of components to be assembled. Assembly will start on the day on which all the materials that are necessary (components, including the required surplus amounts, printed circuit boards, and stencil) have arrived
We process components supplied by you as well as components purchased for you. If you wish to assemble particular components yourself, this is not a problem
The components that you supply must be delivered in a dry condition and be adequately labelled.
Please use the component designations that are also entered on your bill of material (BOM)
BOM – Bill Of Materials
In order to avoid errors and delays with the assembly, we need to receive the BOM file in a special format

Our Equipment is critical to achieve our high quality supply and expedient delivery times. We constantly revise the suitability of our equipment and continually strive to use the latest state of the art Equipment. Our printed circuit boards assembly equipment is always calibrated and checked for its effectiveness by our stringent quality assurance system.
Zapon supply’s a wide variety of stencils for all manufacturing requirements with direct from Overseas pricing. We are committed to delivering the highest quality laser cut stencils, All of our SMT (Surface mount technology ) stencils are designed for optimum solder paste volume control for prototyping and high volume screen printing on printed circuit boards. Our stencils are laser cut and electropolished to ensure the best paste release characteristics available.

before PCB assembly China, we need to produce your printed circuit boards. our engineer will create a panel array with tooling strips, mounting holes,fiducial marks.
panelization is a must-have with the consideration of PCB fabrication efficiency, reducing assembly labor cost and quality control.
We can accept your panelized PCB design file or help panelize design based on your specific requirements
Panel with V-CUT/V-GROOVE
We require 0.0mm spacing between each unit for panel with V-cut
As the V-scoring could only go all through the whole board and no-stop, V-cut cannot be used for the panel with units of different size
Panel with TAB-ROUTING
For panel with Tab-routing, we need 2.0mm spacing between each unit. We offer two options for tab-routing: Tab-Route with breaking holes and Tab-route with tabs
For each panel, we require at least 3 fiducial marks. Those marks should be placed in the middle of the tooling strips with the diameter at 1.0mm.
The fiducial marks on board’s left should be 10.0mm away from the board edge, and the right ones should be 15.0mm away from the board’s right edge
We would recommend diameter of mounting holes to be set at 3.0mm and the width of tooling strips at 7.0mm, and at least 5.0mm distance from the edge of the board
Printed Circuit Boards Assembly FAQ
01. What files and data do I need to send you to confirm pricing and place order?
We need the following files
Gerber files for Top/Bottom Copper, Silkscreen, and Solder paste mask.
BOM list.It needs reference designators, value, package, description, and manufacturer part number. contact us to receive a BOM sample
Cad-generated component location XYRS file-also called the parts position/rotation file or the machine pick-n-place file. Each CAD system will generate this, if requested.
Board X,Y, 0,0 reference designators; Board Fiducial Marks are appreciated but not required.
02. In what formats do you accept parts
We gladly accept parts in cut tape, trays, tubes, reels, even bags if necessary…whatever. If you are ordering cut-tape from a vendor please request a continuous strip for the order quantity plus overage.
03. How do you handle Shipping and Handling
We can ship it by FedEx, If you have a shipping account already established, please provide that information upon order confirmation and we will bill the shipment charges directly to you. Otherwise, we will prepay and add all shipping charges we’ve incurred to your invoice upon closing. All packages are sent insured.
04. Why do you need the silkscreen gerber layer?
The silkscreen layer normally includes POLARITY information and reference designators for parts. From diodes and polarized caps to QFNs and BGAs, orientation is critical. If your CAD system is ‘weak’ in calling out the rotation, then the visible information contained in the silk is our best check. That doesn’t include the requirements of a repair tech or a QA inspector.
05. How many extra parts do you require?
Please send a minimum of 50 pieces on a continuous strip 10 to 12 inches long or 5 % overage for all common passives; whichever is greater to avoid any delays in production. IC’s and more expensive parts usually require 1-2 extra at most. Parts that are properly shipped in anti-static carriers or in moisture sensitive packaging will be treated with care both while being inventoried and placed. Any unused parts are returned with your job.
06. Can you ensure the quality of the parts you use?
We purchase all our parts from reputable agents like DigiKey and Mouser. As such, we can guarantee the quality of the parts we use. We also have a quality control department that verifies the quality of all parts before they are incorporated into our products
07. What is the delivery time for a printed circuit boards assembly order?
The general lead time for the fulfillment of PCBA orders is about 4-5 weeks. This includes PCB manufacture, component procurement, and assembly.
08. Do you order components? do we have to provide them to you?
We usually buy components from DigiKey, Mouser and Farnell from our licensed agent suppliers. However, if you would like to buy them directly yourself, that is fine. If you want to provide all the components or partial components, that is also ok.
