EMS firm Milwaukee Electronics continues to upgrade the capabilities and capacity of its Tecate, Mexico facility. The facility recently completed its ISO 9001:2015 audit and is now registered to the latest revision of that standard.
The facility has also continued to add automated assembly capacity. It has purchased an Autosplice Multisert Xs machine capable of inserting knife terminals for automotive fuse boxes. Manual assembly processes do not provide insertion accuracy repeatability that is good enough to support automotive industry specifications. The new equipment remedies that challenge. Machine features include:
- Insertion rates up to 3 per second on 0.2” (5.08 mm) pitch
- 18” x 18” insertion area (457 mm x 457 mm)
- Accuracy of ±0.0001”
- Vision system for PCB error correction
- Ability to add an additional placement head
