Koh Young America and TRC celebrate a 15-year Partnership

Reading time ( words)

Over 26 years ago, Frank Mascetti founded Technical Resources Corporation (TRC) and began as an manufacturers' rep firm specializing in manufacturing, inspection, and synergistic products for the printed circuit board (PCB) assembly industry. Today, the collective resources at TRC provide over 75 years of experience serving the electronics industry in Florida, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic. The company works collaboratively with its customers to assess their manufacturing needs, and then leverage its product offerings in an effective manner that can transform the manufacturing process.

This month, Koh Young America celebrates its 15-year anniversary with its sales partner TRC. “For 15 years, TRC has been our invaluable partner in Florida and Puerto Rico. During this time, Frank and his team have helped Koh Young secure new customers, develop new technologies, and expand our leadership position as the industries predominant supplier of true 3D inspection and measurement solutions,” said Brent A. Fischthal, senior manager for Americas Marketing and Regional Sales with Koh Young America. “We look forward to continuing this relationship and expanding our growth trajectory in the region.”

Since its inception in 1993, TRC has been listening to what manufacturers want, and then using knowledge-based decisions to deliver what they need with the highest quality products and services available. Its line card of synergistic and complementary product offerings provides “total integrated solutions,” which includes the industry-leading solder paste inspection (SPI), automated optical inspection (AOI), automated pin inspection (API), and Smart Factory solutions from Koh Young.

“Back in 2004, I first met with Koh Young Technologies Founder and CEO, Dr. Kwangill Koh in a Tampa hotel lobby to discuss an industry disruptive inspection innovation,” said Frank Mascetti, Founder and Owner of TRC. “His vision for the industry and passion for customers immediately convinced me to make a bold move to represent his company and run forward—and I’ve never looked back.”

From the industry’s first 3D SPI solution, Dr. Koh’s vision combined with the Voice of the Customer has driven many more “industry first” innovations like closed-loop feedback. “With its forward-thinking strategies, Koh Young began delivering industry-disruptive solutions like its Industry 4.0 enabling KSMART software. What’s more, Koh Young provides its customers with software enhancements and performance upgrades to ensure users increase utilization and improve yields.”

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.
