Automated SMT Placement With On-The-Fly Vision Centering
The only method capable of handling the full complement of surface mount devices is 100% vision centering. The feeders contain memory devices to store part information, minimizing production errors. The machine is touch-screen computer controlled, with self-teach programming via downward-viewing camera or direct CAD download. Off-line computer programming is available for generating placement files.

Through-Hole Prep and Insertion
We use axial and radial automated prep and insertion machines to achieve maximum performance, yield, and lead insertion. When needed, we have 36 feet of slide line for manual insertion purposes. All areas and personnel are grounded against static discharge.
We use no-clean fluxes and pastes throughout the assembly process to operate without CFCs and maintain high surface insulation resistance without cleaning. With this non-corrosive process, there are no residues to interfere with the ATE probes and it's safer than RMA fluxes. We also use advanced cleaning systems, including high-pressure chemical saponifier spray and ultrasonic immersion.
