STI Participates in Manufacturing Day


Reading time ( words)

STI Electronics Inc. recently hosted the Covenant Christian Academy for Manufacturing Day (MFG Day).

Friday, October 6 marked the annual celebration of MFG Day across the United States. STI joined other manufacturers in a collaborative effort to highlight current innovations and inspire the next generation of manufacturing professionals.  

STI hosted the Covenant Christian Academy, and David Raby, president/CEO, gave a guided tour of STI’s manufacturing area. This was followed by instructor-led hand soldering training delivered by Pat Scott, director of Training Services, and Darlene Hoffer, master instructor.

“It is always a pleasure to introduce our local youth to the engineering disciplines and expose them to electronics manufacturing processes,” stated Raby. “I hope that we’ve made such a favorable impression on these individuals that they chose to seek employment with us some day.”

Improving Solder Paste Printing

12/12/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
Of the three elements involved in the solder paste printing process—stencil, solder paste, and printer—the stencil is considered one of the major factors affecting the transfer efficiency, accuracy, and consistency, of solder pastes into the pads, especially with the continuing trend towards miniaturization.

Equipment Matters in Solder Paste Printing

12/06/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
The solder paste printing process has always been considered a major contributor to yield loss. According to many studies, solder paste printing accounts for up to 70% of all PCB assembly defects. For the December issue of SMT Magazine, we interviewed experts in the solder paste printing process to learn more about the key issues leading to this huge percentage of defects, and the technology developments that are addressing these challenges and improving yields in the process.

What Matters Most is Communication

12/04/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
While there may be new techniques and strategies, technologies, equipment, tools, and materials to employ and utilize, there is always one thing that will ensure the manufacturing/ assembly success of your product: communication. Communication between the designer and the assembler will help improve the manufacturability and assembly of the final product—even before the board design gets fabricated.
