Converging on Shanghai - ACON4 Final and ABIT and Kingston Factories - Kingston Factory in Free Trade Zone - SMT

Last week we were in Shanghai, China for the ABIT ACON4 global gaming competition final. While we were in the country we also visited both ABIT and Kingston factories to learn the latest methods employed by both companies to produce their current lines of products.

Kingston Factory in Free Trade Zone - SMT

 

 

 

 

We begin after walking through Kingston's small office area through to the production area. Our first stop was at one of the most critical machines in the factory. This machine was responsible for placing the memory chips on the memory module. It used the same Surface Mount Technology for applying the chips to the PCB as we saw at the ABIT factory.

 

 

Once the memory modules pass through the machine above, each module is checked manually by a factory worker.

 

 

 

The memory modules are then manually placed in the section of the machine above. In the shot above, we can see the machine which does the job of chopping up the eight joined modules into separate modules.

 

 

 

The modules are then collected by the factory worker and placed into containers ready to be handed onto a new section of the factory for signal testing.
