Harting Introduction of the Pin in Hole Intrusive Reflow Process

The continuing trend towards miniaturisation has revolutionised the assembly of electronic components. For the past 15 years, most components have been secured directly to the pcb surface by means of Surface Mount Technology (SMT). By dispensing with drilled holes on the pcb, a space saving of up to 70 percent is achieved.
