Amerway Adds Capability with New Continuous Casting Machine


Reading time ( words)

Amerway Inc. has boosted its production capabilities with the installation of a new ‘Continuous Casting’ machine at the company’s Beale Avenue manufacturing facility in Altoona, Pennsylvania. The new machine, with its innovative circular ‘casting wheel’ design, speeds up production capabilities for Amerway solder bar and wire products.

In making the announcement, Terry Buck, president, said, “We’re pleased to have this new capability up and running in-house now, because it improves lead times for all orders, especially large orders. It can generate on average 2,000 lbs. an hour of alloy products, depending on the alloy, and of course that means lead-free. Its design prevents cross-contamination of alloys so that our customers not only receive their products fast and on time, but they can also be assured of its absolute purity.”

Tim Brown, Sales Manager, added that “This machine utilizes a single-cast operation, reducing the cost of manufacturing and that includes labor and press expenses. Its greater capability frees up press time for other products, and thereby reduces lead times across the board for all Amerway products.”

Amerway manufactures a large selection of lead-free alloys and metals products including pure tin, tin/copper, tin/antimony, tin/silver, SAC-alloys, fluxes, and more, in Altoona, Pennsylvania, conveniently in the eastern United States,  Amerway holds ISO 9001 quality certification.

What’s Driving AOI Innovation and Collaboration?

03/25/2020 | Brent Fischthal, Koh Young America
When we look at the optical inspection market growth trajectory, we can see how process challenges helped create innovations. For example, solder paste inspection (SPI) has undergone a shift from 2D to 3D because the 2D inspection technologies manufacturers traditionally used to collect solder deposit images could not solve shadowing problems. Thus, companies developed 3D SPI to capture the printed solder paste height to accurately measure the total volume of paste printed. Several years later, we see the same need for surface-mounted component inspection with AOI systems.

Trends From the Show: Solder and Software

03/18/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
In my role as a media representative, my perspective on IPC APEX EXPO may be a bit different from that of many attendees. Since the I-Connect007 team had the opportunity to talk to many attendees and exhibitors and listen to their stories over the course of the week, our view can be particularly wide. When I reflected on all the conversations, pieces from all throughout the week coalesced and provided a different understanding of and takeaway from the show.
