Advanced Assembly Adds a New, High-Tech Selective Solder Line


Reading time ( words)

Advanced Assembly, the pioneers of the quick-turn PCB assembly services, announced the installation of its new selective solder machine, the Juki iCube. This new robust system provides the company with a unique ability to perform selective soldering on through-hole mounted components faster and with more repeatability than before.

The Juki iCube selective soldering system is a complete all-in-one solution with extensive features designed for high-end, high-quality production. For PCB designs with through-hole components distributed across the board, selective soldering provides the ability to target individual pins as opposed to exposing the entire PCB to a wave soldering process.

“This brand-new selective solder technology gives us the ability to place through-hole components on the type of sophisticated designs commonly used in the avionics, aerospace, and defense industries,” said Greg Ziraldo, Advanced Assembly’s Senior Director of Operations. “For our customers, this new solution means faster turn-times on repeat designs and more precise through-hole assembly.”

Additionally, Advanced Assembly has completed the expansion of its Colorado-based manufacturing facility. The additional 6,000 square feet have been used to expand the company’s SMT and Receiving departments and increase the production space for improved manufacturing flow.

“Speed matters to engineers developing new products for the electronics market,” said Lawrence Davis, Advanced Assembly’s President and CEO. “The faster they can get PCB prototypes back for testing and verification, the faster they can move into final production runs. We know this. It’s why we are constantly implementing innovative processes and new equipment that reduce turn-times. Every minute counts in today’s highly competitive world.”

What is a good solder joint? And how can they be tested not only for purposes of process characterisation, optimisation, monitoring, and control but also for ensuring their long-term reliability? Pete Starkey details a webinar organised by the Europe Chapter of SMTA that was presented by Bob Willis, an expert in soldering, assembly technologies, and failure analysis.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine: Test and Measurement in a Smart Factory

11/03/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Nolan Johnson spoke with MIRTEC President Brian D’Amico about how the role of test and measurement equipment is changing in the smart factory and how shops can adjust to make use of the new technology. D’Amico shares this insight: “While approximately 90% of U.S. electronics manufacturers recognize the potential of Industry 4.0 to improve productivity, many are slow to adopt smart factory solutions within the manufacturing process.”

Reducing Flux Splatter in Sensors and Camera Modules

10/30/2020 | Jasbir Bath, Shantanu Joshi, and Noriyoshi Uchida, Koki Solder America And Koki Company Limited
With the increased use of electronics in new technology areas, flux formulations are being developed to address the new and existing requirements. For sensors and camera modules used for Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and internet of things (IoT) applications, there is a demand for no-clean flux formulations in lead-free solder paste, which can reduce flux splattering during reflow.
