A Storage Container in Action

storage containerMoving isn’t exactly one of the easiest things to do in the world. It’s expensive, time-consuming and just an overall pain in the ass but we do it anyway. Let’s face it, we often feel a deep sense of attachment to our things—even to those we absolutely hate or don’t even use in the first place. I’m pretty sure you’ve heard about this before, and although this never really had any connection to moving, it’s always hard to part with the things you love.

We know, saying goodbye is one of the hardest parts of moving how the hell are you supposed to cram your entire space into a box or a bag? “They’re just stuff. I don’t even need them around anymore, it’s fine.” Try as you’d like to repeat these mantras to yourself, you know they still matter even if you say they don’t. Even psychology says there’s a much deeper explanation to every humans’ attachment to “stuff”; so don’t worry, collecting stuff really is normal.

That collection of pebbles you got from your visit to the beach? They were a remembrance of a fun day with friends. Don’t get me started on those old books you’ve had since college—letting go may be hard, but packing’s definitely harder. “How to be a smart packer? How to let go of stuff and move on… to another space?” you might be asking yourself these questions and trust me, finding answers isn’t easy but at, we might just have what you’re looking for.

containerIt’s exhausting to think about all the things you’ll need to do before a move; there’s papers that need handling and a whole lot of packing and sorting that needs to be done. You might be stuck in your apartment thinking of packing the entire place and moving into another, but realize you must that purging isn’t only a thing of the movies. And by purging, I mean stuff and not people. If there’s ever a good time to clean your closets and drawers out, this is it. Moving is the perfect opportunity to actually clean with a clear sense of purpose.

You’re almost always given the choice between cardboard and plastic before making the big move, but which do you choose? Boxes are often the most common choice when you’re out on the dangerous mission of throwing junk away from your apartment or house. They’re pretty cheap plus you can throw almost anything in them, but then you’re going to have to face the big dilemma of where to put the boxes in and how you’re going to move them. Sometimes, your good old car trunk just won’t make the cut.

Moving far away can be exciting, terrifying and stressful or may even be a mix of the three; a whole lot of creative thinking’s involved and you’re faced with the never ending question of what and what not to pack. Sure, boxes can indeed come in handy and the fact that they come in all sorts of sizes makes everything a whole lot easier, but where are you supposed to put them in? Carrying one or two boxes is one thing, but how are you going to carry a dozen? You simply don’t have enough arms for that sort of job.

Here’s an easy solution though imagine having a collection of boxes and putting them in an even bigger box that’s movable or attachable to a set of wheels. Wouldn’t that make the entire process speedy and easy? A storage container can do the job for you.

Now here’s the juice on what a storage container is—a storage container isn’t those plastic containers you use to store toys or food in, they’re a whole lot sturdier than that. A storage container was built to withstand loads that normally require a whole lot of work for humans, and the greatest thing about them? They’re attachable to cars! If you’ve ever seen those moving companies with those huge crate-like bulks their vehicles drag along, then you’ve seen a storage container in action.

So whether you’re planning on moving far away, to the next block or just across the street, you have to be a smart packer. Plan a strategy out and stick with it. It’s going to be hard, but trust me when I say it’s going to be worth your efforts.

The Different PCB Assembly Methods

The Printed Circuit Board (PCB) is the “brain” of an electronic device. Every electronic device has it. It could be single-layered or multilayered. Complex devices such as computers can have as many as 12 layers of printed circuit board to make them function according to their purpose.

However, before a PCB can function, it needs to undergo PCB manufacturing and PCB assembly (PCBA). PCB Manufacturing is the process of creating the printed circuit board, while PCBA is the process of attaching electronic components to make the PCB work according to its functionality. A PCB has two sides: the component side and the copper tracks side. As the name implies, the component side is where you can find the electronic components such transistors, resistors, and capacitors. On the other hand, the copper tracks side is where the electrical connections are.

There are two known methods used in PCB assembly: surface mount and through-hole. Both methods use electro-mechanical and manual assembly along the way.

Surface-mount Assembly (SMT)

SMT is the process of mounting electronic components on the surface of a printed circuit board without drilling holes on it. As of today, majority of PCB manufacturers and assemblers use this technology due to its cost efficiency in the manufacturing and assembly process. The 80s was the beginning of sophisticated electronic devices that require much smaller PCBs. Thus, SMT was developed and gained its popularity during that time. Nowadays, you could see multilayered electronic PCB in a single device. This is made possible with the use of SMT.

Solder pads and solder paste are used to mount components onto the PCB. SMT decreases the number of holes drilled on the surface of PCB, if not completely eliminates the need for drilling holes. The use of the technology allows for a much higher component density to be achieved. The electronic components in an SMT procedure are as small as 1mm. These components are getting smaller as new developments emerge.

Pcb assemblyMoreover, SMT creates a dual-mounting technology during PCB assembly, which means both side of the PCB can be used to mount components. Because of the surface mounting technique, there is no need to provide space for wiring purposes. Another advantage of SMT is that it can still use the conventional method when necessary.

One disadvantage of SMT is its unreliability on electronic devices that require frequent attaching or detaching. Due to its smaller components, reliability of the circuit may be compromised and solder joints are less efficient compared to those of a through-hole assembled PCB. Changing the settings of prototype and test applications is harder. It will take days or even weeks to create the correct setting for another prototype.

Through-hole Assembly

Through-hole technique, sometimes spelled “thru-hole”, is the method of mounting components with holes pre-drilled on the wiring board. The electronic components have pins and are soldered through the holes. The mechanical bond of the electronic components with the PCB is stronger. Since it allows components to be easily interchanged, this technology is commonly used in prototyping and manufacturing heavy-duty electronic equipment such as military and aerospace products.

One disadvantage of through-hole assembly is that it requires a more expensive board due to drilling requirement. Through-hole also limits an assembler to work one side of the board.

In conclusion, SMT is more reliable and practical for the mass production of electronic products and devices that need highly sophisticated components and wiring, while through-hole PCB assembly is best for creating prototypes and heavy-duty equipment. Despite the popularity of SMT among manufacturers and assemblers, many still use through-hole assembly due to its reliability in withstanding constant mechanical and environmental stress.
