MSI Media Tour 2007 – Shanghai (Part 2)

Posted on Sunday, September 16 2007 @ 05:07:21 CEST by


Although we weren’t allowed to take any pictures inside the factory, due to MSI not wanting its competitors to see the kind of equipment used, we will still offer a glimpse into how motherboards and notebooks are produced in the Kunshan factory. The PCB’s aren’t made on site and arrive ready to use at the production line. The PCB’s are inserted into a transport line which takes them through several SMT machines which mounts the surface mounted components onto the boards and the PCB’s are then passed through hot ovens that melts the soldering points on the SMT components.

Depending on the complexity of the board this is done in various steps and even the CPU socket and the chipset is mounted by machines. However, things like the capacitors, slots, I/O ports and pretty much anything that isn’t surface mounted is done by hand. Once all these things have been fitted onto the PCB it goes through yet another oven to solder all these components into place and then the motherboard is ready to have the BIOS fitted. Once this has been done it goes onto the testing stage where every single port and connector on the board is tested and the board is booted up and several different software tests are run to make sure the board works correctly.
