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.”
