Horizon Sales Builds Momentum with Gen3 Product Line in North America

Reading time ( words)

Horizon Sales is pleased to announce that their initial efforts as the exclusive North American distributor for the Gen3 product line have kicked off tremendously. Since the start of their relationship with Gen3 at the beginning of 2020, Horizon has equipped their Brighton, Michigan demo room with several Gen3 products, and accomplished multiple customer visits to see the machines in action. Some Gen3 products that have been extremely popular with their customer base are the Gensonic stencil cleaning system, the AutoSIR and the MUST3 solderability tester.

The Gensonic Stencil Cleaning System is especially good at removing solder paste from very small apertures as small as those used for 0201 components. It can be used either directly on the stencil mounted on the printer or after the stencil has been removed. The Gensonic stencil cleaner uses a 40khz ultrasonic generator that cleans with great efficiency, especially in tough applications such as partially set glues.

AutoSIR is used to measure changes in Surface Insulation Resistance. The AutoSIR2+™ system represents a dramatic improvement over existing SIR test alternatives, and its shielded precision electronics allows state-of-the-art accuracy resistance measurements to be made up to 1014 Ω.

The MUST3 solderability tester offers the capability to measure down to 0.001mN. It is THE most accurate and comprehensively equipped test system of its type in the world. It has automatic component alignment and testing, immediate pass/fail information on completion of each test, step and repeat function for multi-leaded devices, testing ability down to 0201 devices and more.

In business for more than 25 years, Horizon provides state-of-the-art equipment and supplies to its customers, helping them to achieve best-in-class status in their respective markets. Horizon Sales represents the mid-western states of Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Western Pennsylvania, Illinois, Eastern Iowa, Wisconsin and Florida.

Driving Down Cost in the Supply Chain

04/08/2021 | Meghan Zou, EPOCH
Driving cost out of the supply chain goes beyond reduction of raw material cost. Though many of the manufacturers today concentrate on negotiation with their raw material supplier(s) the hidden cost of internal supply chain goes undetected. To address the cost of the entire supply chain we should not only look at direct material cost but also the cost of internal supply chain. At Epoch we looked at four areas in particular which include: planning/tracking, storage/delivery, inventory management, and supplier relationships.

5 Keys to Smart Process Success

01/28/2021 | Steve Williams, The Right Approach Consulting LLC
Smart factories require the core underlying processes to be connected and “talking” to generate the data necessary to make real-time process decisions, that is, the IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things). In a truly connected factory, an ongoing continuous dialog between machines, business processes, suppliers and customers is happening in the background. This dialog is not only interactive, but proactive, as a constant stream of real-time data is tweaking and adjusting processes to drive improvement. It also provides time-critical information on how processes are operating, supply chain pipeline, and delivery status updates—all based on data.
