Absolute EMS Announces Groundbreaking Technology for LED, Medical & Automotive from Averatek

Reading time ( words)

Absolute EMS, Inc., a leading provider of turnkey and consignment manufacturing services, is pleased to announce a new groundbreaking technology for LED, medical and automotive applications from high-tech partner Averatek Corporation. Santa Clara, California based Averatek recently launched Mina™, a chemistry that offers exciting benefits over traditional methods of soldering to Aluminum.

Absolute EMS assembles surface mount components onto polymer substrates with Aluminum traces using Averatek’s Mina™ product. Mina™ is a simple pretreatment for Aluminum that allows soldering to Aluminum as easily as soldering to Copper. It is printed onto the pads using a stencil printer and cured at low temperatures. 

Doug Dow, Absolute EMS COO, commented: “It is truly an honor to be in partnership with Averatek. Their mission is to create solutions that deliver ‘tomorrow’s technology’ and this means that together, we are working on things the industry has never seen before. The transparent polymer substrate can be a very thin piece of flexible PET, with flexible Aluminum traces where the components are placed with strategic accuracy. Averatek’s team of PHD’s and Scientists are working with Absolute EMS to continually push the boundaries of science and technology. And this space is where Absolute EMS thrives!” 

Averatek’s CEO, Haris Basit, wrote: “It has been wonderful working closely with Absolute EMS on bringing this new capability to the market. Absolute EMS combines the rigor and quality control of an established production facility with a flexibility and openness crucial to developing new products and processes. Finding one organization that encompasses both qualities has greatly accelerated our development cycle.”

It’s not just automotive and medical devices for which capital equipment manufacturers like BTU International are finding a market. It’s also not just domestic. Bob Bouchard says his company has seen an uptick in sales after the pandemic into more “purpose-built” equipment with sophisticated requirements and very tight process control. It’s meant an increase in sales staff as well. It’s encouraging news ahead of BTU International’s exhibit at SMTA International next week.

Optimizing Test Engineering Practices for High-Mix Electronics Manufacturing

08/15/2022 | Mark Laing, Siemens Digital Industries Software
For PCB and assembly manufacturers, test engineering has become a critical factor in enhancing the profitability of new product introductions (NPIs). Given the trend toward high-mix, low-volume production, the journey from design data to an automated PCB testing program must be quicker and more efficient than ever before. In this article, we will discuss how to optimize the efficiency of the test engineering process in accordance with these new market realities.
