Qisda Wins Certifications for Robot-based Production Lines

Reading time ( words)

EMS provider Qisda has obtained ISO 10218 and ISO/TS 15066 certifications for collaborative robot-based production lines at its automated factory in northern Taiwan from Taiwan-based Precision Machinery Research & Development Center (PMC), Digitimes reports.

According to PMC, collaborative robots play an important role in smart manufacturing, but their operation should be subject to safety of collaborative human workers. Qisda's collaborative robot-based production lines feature three layers of protection of collaborative workers: The first layer is placement of workers in outer working zones and collaborative robots in inner ones for collaboration; the second layer is use of grating sensing to slow down operation of collaborative robots when workers enter working zones of such robots; the third layer is for robotic arms to automatically stop operation once workers touch them.

Failures and Reliability in Soldering

07/09/2019 | Michael Gouldsmith and Zen Lee, Thermaltronics
The definition of failure is "the lack of success in doing or achieving something, especially in relation to a particular activity." If the activity is concerning a soldering process, such a failure can have a downstream impact far beyond the actual solder joint. In this regard, it is first necessary to understand what constitutes a good solder joint because appearance is too often deemed a success.

Flex Circuit Supply Chain Challenges

02/13/2019 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
In our recent Flex and Rigid-Flex survey, we asked the following question: "Do you have problems with your flex circuit supply chain?" Below are just a few of the explanations of those who answered "Yes", slightly edited for clarity.

QFN Center Pads on PCBs

08/09/2017 | Duane Benson, Screaming Circuits
Not all QFNs come with an exposed metal pad underneath, but most do, and that can still cause problems with reflow solder. The pad itself isn't the problem, but improper solder paste stencil layer design can be.
