QUALITEL TO COMPLETE $1M EQUIPMENT ACQUISITION BY END OF 2016
Qualitel continues to enhance its electronics manufacturing services with the recent acquisition of state-of-the-art equipment including the Mycronic My-600 Jet Solder Paster Printer, Electrovert Wave Solder and a Keysight 3070 ICT Test System.
Qualitel budgets $1 million per year so we always have the latest, state-of-the-art equipment. Several other pieces of equipment will be purchased before the end of the year.
The new My-600 Jet Printer expands Qualitel’s capabilities in rapid prototyping and NPI projects. It overcomes the limitations of screen printing, including the lag time before a stencil arrives and will allow our engineering team to test different apertures before ordering stencils. The Mycronic can be quickly programmed to deposit precise solder paste volumes within hours rather than waiting a few days for the stencil to arrive. That’s if you design the correct stencil the first time.
The Keysight 3070 ICT Test System delivers best in class test coverage on discrete components (Resistors, Capacitors, Diodes, Inductors, Transistors etc.) and digital devices. Testing is at net level and the aim is for 100% coverage, ensuring any failing devices or manufacturing issues are caught before functional test. The test times are extremely quick with most tests completed in less than 60 seconds. Adding this system allows us to provide better coverage while reducing the test cost per board.
In addition to the Jet Printer and Keysight 3070 ICT Test System, we have acquired two Electrovert Wave Solder systems. The Electrovert is ideal for low-to-medium mass soldering production requirements. It is designed to handle lead-free and difficult applications, and incorporates a number of features to support difficult and challenging process environments.
The recent acquisitions reflect Qualitel’s commitment to always have the most advanced, state-of-the-art equipment. By doing so, we reduce manufacturing costs, speed up delivery and maintain our standards of high reliability and quality. In addition, having the latest equipment expands our capabilities and increase our chances of achieving our goals of zero defects, 100% on-time-delivery and 100% quality.
