National Circuit Assembly Invests in GETech Router for Large Boards


Reading time ( words)

National Circuit Assembly, a provider of PCB, cable and electro/mechanical manufacturing and test services to leading OEMs, announced that it has purchased a GETech GSR1280 Semi-Automatic Router. The system has been installed at NCA’s Garland facility and will allow the company to route (de-panelize) large panels (PCB size of 500mm X 500mm into individual units).

“Introducing this router will automate another aspect of our quality control, promising the highest quality results for our customers,” says Eric Nguyen, NCA VP Manufacturing. “Cutting down on our own costs upfront allows us to keep prices low for our customers. The high-accuracy cutting the router provides will allow us to decrease lead times, rework costs and quality control mistakes.”

The standalone router is capable of speeds of up to 100mm/s and positioning speeds of 1000mm/s. It has two worktables that allow continuous routing with no stoppages during panel loading and unloading. The superior servo axis system provides high acceleration/deceleration, reducing cycle time (increase in production output) and at the same time maintaining high accuracy cutting.

NCA sets itself apart by continually investing in state-of-the-art inspection and test equipment. The company is ITAR registered with the U.S. Department of State. NCA is a UL facility and maintains AS9100D certification. Employees are certified to IPC and J-STD-001 workmanship standards by a dedicated in-house certified trainer.
