Yamaha Motor Corporation USA‘s Intelligent Machinery (IM) Division is pleased to announce the grand opening of its new sales, training and demonstration facility in Marietta, Georgia, USA. Having outgrown the previous facility in nearby Kennesaw, the new facility is a complete replacement of the previous headquarters and offers the ability to double the number of employees while increasing available space for equipment, service, and support operations.

Yamaha is the only SMT vendor with a full line solution.”

In addition to adding factory automated material delivery systems, connected factory tools, computer-controlled component storage and a full line of industrial robots to Yamaha’s already extensive lineup, it was imperative that Yamaha expanded their IM operations in the USA. Tom went on to say, “We have doubled our office capability, and increased our showroom and training/refurbishment area by 80%.  Additionally, we have increased our spare parts inventory and storage area by over 50% to accommodate our additional machines as well as to provide direct support for our many new direct and corporate accounts.”

In the past year, Yamaha has increased direct headcount by over 20% and added 3 new distinct product lines to their portfolio. With a dedicated team of service engineers, applications engineers, technical support personnel and sales people, the IM Team now has room to grow even further in 2019 and beyond.

Comparing Soldering Results of ENIG and EPIG Post-steam Exposure

09/11/2019 | Jon Bengston and Richard DePoto, Uyemura International USA
Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) is now a well-regarded finish used to enhance and preserve the solderability of copper circuits. Electroless palladium immersion gold (EPIG), meanwhile, is a new surface finish also for enhancing and preserving solderability—but with the advantage of eliminating electroless nickel from the deposit layer. This feature has become increasingly important with the increasing use of high-frequency PCB designs whereby nickel’s magnetic properties are detrimental.

Solder Mask Evolves into a Truly Additive Process

09/09/2019 | John Fix, Taiyo America Inc.
The 5G era is creating quite a bit of work for many PCB engineers as the materials required to keep up with the speed, frequency, and latency requirements need to be defined and qualified. Solder mask, for example, now becomes a truly additive process. Read on to find out how and why.

Selecting the Proper Flex Coverlayer Material

09/06/2019 | Dave Lackey, American Standard Circuits
Coverlayers are polymer materials used to cover and protect the copper traces of the flex circuit product. There are a number of different options available for protecting the circuits, and they serve different design requirements in terms of cost, performance, and flexural endurance optimization. When specifying the choice, it is critical to call out not just the type of coverlayer material but also the thickness requirement. This can be very important in certain types of constructions, especially when a flex circuit will experience dynamic flexing during use.
