Reading time ( words)

Seika Machinery, Inc., a leading provider of advanced machinery, materials and engineering services, is pleased to announce its top McDry representatives for 2016. The top three reps were recognized during the recent IPC APEX EXPO in San Diego. The top McDry reps in order of sales performance in 2016 are: 

  1. Armand Karolian, Assembly Tech LLC 
  2. Tommy O’Conner, Hisco, Inc. 
  3. Ernesto Bader, Ceiba Technologies, Inc.   

“Seika Machinery appreciates the enthusiastic support of our sales representatives and distributors for the McDry cabinets,” said Michelle Ogihara, Seika Machinery’s Senior Sales Manager. “Our customers and sales network have confidence in the quality and performance of McDry for their critical dry storage applications. This year at APEX we featured the N2 Auto-Purge and popular Feeder storage models.” 

McDry dry boxes, dry cabinets and desiccators provide optimal ultra-low humidity and moisture-proof storage for IC packages. Moisture-sensitive components – when safely and properly stored in McDry – have an indefinite floor-life and micro-cracking or pop-corning during the reflow process is not an issue. 

Other storage applications for McDry include original prints, printed wiring boards (PWBs), polymide film, tape reels, feeders and various electronic components and materials. McDry cabinets conform to IPC/JEDEC J-STD 033C and IPC 1601 Guidelines.

The vast majority of the problems that we run into fall to the categories of communication and information. As with the old 'telephone game,' each time information goes from one party to another, the risk of misinterpretation increases. If we are given unclear information from a customer, we may not be able to give the right information to our partner.
