Absolute EMS is the West Coast Demo Center for Sasinno Selective Solder

Reading time ( words)

Absolute EMS, Inc., an award-winning EMS provider of turnkey and consignment manufacturing services, has procured an ANT-i1 selective soldering machine from Sasinno. Because of the quality that the ANT-i1 provides and because Absolute EMS appreciates its partnership with Sasinno, it has now been designated as Sasinno’s West Coast Showroom.

“Our partnership with Sasinno is such that if they wish to bring a guest into the facility, we will provide a technical escort to demonstrate and share our experience with their equipment,” stated Doug Dow, COO. “In return, they keep us abreast of their new technologies and provide us with exceptional support. This successful relationship provides benefits to both parties as well as to potential customers.”

The ANT-i1 enables Absolute EMS to reduce assembly time by eliminating hand soldering, and most importantly, maintaining perfect soldering quality. The system complements the tight tolerances and demanding needs of the company’s customer base.

The ANT-i1 is a compact selective soldering machine with a small footprint of 990 x 1308 mm that features a drop jet flux, bottom preheating and a mechanical selective soldering pump. The system comes standard with Windows 10, a simple-to-use but comprehensive software that quickly and efficiently locates a fluxing/soldering path, allowing fluxing speed, soldering speed, solder height and dwell time to be edited. Also, all flux types, solder types and solder nozzle types can be recorded for future repeat production, and all parameters related to stable soldering quality are monitored, including N2 pressure, N2 flow, purity and more. Generally, this software provides a fully controllable environment for a stable soldering quality with repeatability.

Solder Paste Printing and Optimizations for Interconnecting Back Contact Cells

07/26/2022 | Narahari S Pujari and Krithika PM, MacDermid Alpha Electronics Solutions
The interdigitated back contact (IBC) is one of the methods to achieve rear contact solar cell interconnection. The contact and interconnection via rear side theoretically achieve higher efficiency by moving all the front contact grids to the rear side of the device. This results in all interconnection structures being located behind the cells, which brings two main advantages. First, there is no frontside shading of the cell by the interconnection ribbons, thus eliminating the need for trading off series resistance, losses for shading losses when using larger interconnection ribbons. Second, a more homogeneous looking frontside of the solar module enhances the aesthetics.

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.
