LED Neon Strips Production Process

The Art of Illumination: Crafting Every Strip

  • Step 1: Solder Paste Application for Precision

    We initiate the process by applying lead-free solder paste to PCB sheets using a stainless steel stencil. This precision is crucial for both automated and manual production, ensuring each solder point receives the right amount of paste, verified through rigorous quality control.

  • Step 2: Accurate Placement of SMT Components

    Our advanced SMT machine precisely places components on each PCB, a vital step for the LED neon strips' optimal functionality. We ensure exact alignment at every solder point, followed by detailed inspections to correct any misplacements.

  • Step 3: Reflow Soldering for Reliable Bonding

    The PCBs are then subjected to a reflow soldering process in a multi-zone oven, ensuring solid bonding of components. This step is crucial for effectively setting the solder paste, followed by inspections to identify and rectify any PCB inconsistencies.

  • Step 4: Creating Extended LED Neon Strips

    We assemble 0.5m PCB sheets into 5-meter LED neon strips. Each strip undergoes a stringent quality check, including a 12-hour burn-in test, to assure uniform lighting quality and durability.

  • Step 5: Crafting Colored Silicone Mixtures

    We blend silicone in various colors, creating options like milky white for diffusion or transparent for marking cuts. The diffusion powder ratio is carefully adjusted for optimal color intensity and light transmission.

  • Step 6: Aligning and Adjusting LED Strips

    The LED strips are meticulously positioned and adjusted on an alignment table, preparing them for the next extrusion phase with perfect organization.

  • Step 7: Encasing LED Strips in Silicone with Precision

    We encapsulate the LED strips in silicone through a controlled die and electronic mechanism, ensuring a uniform silicone layer essential for both protection and aesthetic appeal.

  • Step 8: Vulcanizing for Perfect Form and Function

    In a specialized oven, the silicone-encased LED strips undergo vulcanization. This process shapes and hardens the silicone, safeguarding the LED beads and maintaining the strip's form.

  • Step 9: Customizing Cables and Waterproofing

    We tailor cable lengths and solder points to suit various customer needs, adding waterproof end caps to the LED neon strips. This customization enhances the strips' functionality and longevity.

  • Step 10: Rigorous Quality Control for Excellence

    Each LED neon strip is subjected to exhaustive testing, covering aspects like brightness, electrical performance, and waterproofing, ensuring every product meets our stringent quality standards.

  • Step 11: Personalized Laser Engraving for Branding

    As part of our OEM/ODM services, we offer custom laser engraving on the silicone body of the LED neon strips, allowing for bespoke branding and product information.

  • Step 12: Attentive Packaging and Preparation for Dispatch

    Finally, we roll and pack the LED neon strips in anti-static bags or customized packaging based on client specifications. They are securely placed in cartons, ensuring safe and efficient delivery.
