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.

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.
