Intellitronix Acquires Universal Instruments Automated Conveyor System


Reading time ( words)

Intellitronix Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the US Lighting Group, Inc. and a leading manufacturer of automotive electronics, announced it has purchased a high-tech automated conveyor system that seamlessly integrates with the company’s newly acquired Speed Print Technology 700 Series screen printer and Europlacer iineo+ Pick & Place system. Universal Instrument’s model 5362i conveyors are “state-of-the-art” circuit board handling modules designed to operate in a variety of printed circuit board (PCB) assembly environments.

“Acquiring the Universal Instruments surface mount system that seamlessly joins our new screen printing and pick-n-place equipment purchases completes the first section of our new PCB assembly line. The surface mount modules are engineered for smooth material transfer to meet the stringent requirements of our electronic assembly process,” said Paul Spivak, CEO of the US Lighting Group. “The company’s strategic plan with its aggressive growth objectives plus the increased demand for Intellitronix automotive electronics products compelled us to add an additional high-tech line to our production process. We are excited with the advanced technology platform these equipment acquisitions provide us particularly the ability to process 30,000 electronics components per hour, variability of circuit board sizes, tighter quality control, and precision processing.”

Mr. Spivak continued, “Our ability to purchase the new equipment would not be possible without the help and support of our shareholders, whom we are grateful to for their continued support.”

Book Excerpt: 'The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to… Solder Defects'

06/07/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Solder defects in surface-mount technology (SMT) assembly have been an issue for decades. Further, the combined challenges of Pb-free soldering and ever-increasing miniaturization have resulted in new or exacerbated defects in electronics assembly, but there are proven ways to avoid defects. This book will be especially beneficial to PCB assemblers in improving their assembly processes and the reliability of the end-product, eliminating field failures, and reducing costs.

How to Minimize Quoting Time and Increase Accuracy in EMS Production

03/30/2022 | Mark Laing, Siemens Digital Industries Software
New product introductions (NPIs) and customization have been increasing rapidly over the past few years—with the results that the already-small profit margins in electronics assembly are shrinking even further. Fifteen years ago, the PCB was the product. Today, most products are a system, with multiple PCBs, cables, and enclosures. Many manufacturers want to provide turn-key products that have multiple BOMs, making the assembly process even more complicated.
