SMT center and assembly line
Similar to computing devices like laptops and desktop pcs, the foundation of a smartphone is the motherboard. With that, our tour in Oppo’s manufacturing facility started at the Smt center where the motherboards of Oppo smartphones are created. Starting off with the numbers, the SMT center consists of 38 motherboard and 28 small plate production lines, all of which produce a mindboggling 7.5 million motherboards and 25 million sub-boards each month! ensuring the quality of motherboards produced at the Smt Center, Oppo acquired equipment from the best-in-class manufacturers in the world. Once complete, each board undergoes a series of 18 inspection procedures, just to make sure that the board is of best quality. this series of inspection consists of machines that verify the quality of the boards produced by other machines. In the mounting line, three more automatic inspection proceduce and a manual inspection procedure occur to check the welding quality of the boards. to sum up, the standard set by Oppo for the Smt Center goes beyond the national standard in China and is one of the highest in the industry. Once the motherboards and sub-boards are manufactured, these components go to the assembly line workshop to become the finished smartphone that we know. Located on the third floor, the workshop has a total of 26 assembly lines and produces units of Oppo r11 at the time of writing.
