Component Trim and Form

Circuit Technology Center can trim and form electronic component packages to your exact pre-assembly specifications. We can also propose a trim and lead-form drawing if needed. Dedicated, custom tooling can be fabricated to meet custom package requirements.

Precision trim and form of SMT flat-pack and axial and radial lead through-hole components are supported in both low and high-volume quantities. A calibrated optical comparator is used to verify that the lead forming meets all specified dimensions.

Device packaging options include JEDEC trays, tape-and-reel, waffle packs, or custom trays. Components can be MSL-baked and dry-packed following J-STD-020 and J-STD-033 protocols.

A robotic hot solder dip (RHSD) component lead tinning process usually follows trim and form to coat the component leads with solder to prevent oxidation or to remove gold plating.
