THT Method for Printed Circuit Boards

THT Method for Printed Circuit Boards

Whether assembling special components, selective soldering, depaneling, or packaging PCBs – we have the right products for these process steps in the assembly of printed circuit boards. We think you’ll be impressed and inspired by our solutions.

Placing Special Components

Larger special components are placed on the circuit board using our pick & place solutions. You can configure the installed standard industrial robots quickly and easily with our Handling Guide Online. The component is gripped either with a mechanical gripper or with a vacuum suction gripper – the vacuum is best controlled with our standard solenoid valve VUVG from the core program.

Selective Soldering

Selective soldering usually involves moving the soldering tip under the PCB toward the solder points. The electric linear actuator ELGA is perfect for this movement – its cover strip protects the guide and toothed belt from dripping solder. We offer numerous small drive and valve solutions to secure the printed circuit board on the belt during the selective soldering process.


The individual circuit boards are cut out of the panel using a laser or milling cutter. In this case as well, the tool can be precisely moved by either linear actuators ELGC or ELGA, depending on the requirements. The compact vision systems SBOx precisely monitor and control the actuators.


During the packaging process at the end of THT production, the printed circuit boards are placed in blister packs, for example. Electric linear actuators from the Handling Guide Online once again carry out the XY movements during the palletizing process. Vacuum grippers lift the components and the mini slide DGST moves them along the Z-axis.

The vacuum generator OVEL produces the vacuum – for larger printed circuit boards with higher weights, the vacuum generator OVEM takes over.

Handling Guide Online - sizing industrial robots

Configure the right industrial robot, from a single-axis solution to a 3D gantry, quickly and easily with the Handling Guide Online. All you have to do is enter the axis definition, payload, etc. and in just 20 minutes you have a perfect, ready-to-order systems. We supply it together with CAD data and commissioning files, ready to install or partially assembled.
