Tate Technology Adds to their Placement Platform with Another Purchase of ASM E-By-SIPLACE (EBS) from Technica USA

Reading time ( words)

Frank Medina, president of Technica USA, stated, “Technica USA and our supply partner, ASM Assembly Systems are very pleased to receive an order for the third EBS placement machine from Tate Technology. They spent a tremendous amount of time two years ago evaluating the placement technology available on the market that would satisfy their current and future demands. We were very pleased to be selected as their product of choice”.

Scott Tate, President of Tate Technology stated, “The ASM EBS system is a complete game changer for us. After a comprehensive and lengthy review of eight competing systems we chose ASM. Now after 18 months of running the EBS we can say with certainty that they deliver in every aspect. We saw 20% growth in 2017 and attribute much of that growth from our ability to say “yes” to our customer’s requests more often both in terms of order quantity and complexity. In previous years we may have no-bid some of these projects based on the order size exceeding our SMT throughput, if the component count was too high, or if the component size was too small. Our core business is quick-turn, regardless of volume. The EBS is not only fast but flexible, placing 01005’s to large connectors all in the same machine. Two preferred features are the ability to load two-inch strips of cut-tape without splicing and teaching new components on the machine without having to define them ahead of time. Features such as this are invaluable for our ability to support customers with the shortest lead times”

Medina concluded, “Surely we have had much success with the E-By-SIPLACE and the E-By-DEK products since their introduction to the U.S. two years ago. ASM has designed these machines using much of the technology that has proven to be successful with their high volume, high speed equipment. As their Master Distributor in the U.S. we are very pleased to be able to offer the low-mid volume customers with a very economical and highly capable choice for screen printing and placement.”

Tips to Improve Soldering Tip Life and Reduce Cost

10/10/2018 | Thermaltronics
Whether in production, or repair and rework, the cost of soldering iron tips can be easily overlooked, but with today’s requirement for higher temperatures in lead-free solder applications, the consumption of tips has dramatically increased. This fact, combined with changes in tip design to meet the higher thermal load requirements, has also resulted in escalating tip costs, making tip care a high priority.

What SMT Component Shortages Mean for Design and Manufacturing Engineers
