VJ Electronix, Inc., the leader in rework technologies and global provider of advanced X-ray inspection and component counting systems, is pleased to announce that Rocket EMS, Inc. has installed its second XQuik II Plus component counter. When the company acquired its new 50,000 sq ft. facility in Carson City, Nevada, they made the decision to outfit it with the award-winning X Quick II Plus. Rocket EMS now operates an X Quik II at its new Carson City facility as well as its headquarters in the heart of Silicon Valley.

“Working in a fast-paced environment like Rocket EMS is never an easy task to do singlehandedly,” stated Geenno Fontanilla.

Director of Engineering at Rocket EMS. “That is why we rely on partnerships with equipment suppliers like VJ Electronix to provide us with technologically advanced equipment. The XQuick II Plus has been a work horse in our receiving and warehouse departments at both our Nevada and California sites. As we move forward to integrate this into our Voyager 2.0 MES system, our customers would soon have visibility at a component level to ensure accuracy and traceability of their materials on demand.”

The VJ Electronix XQuik II Plus is the solution to today’s demanding component counting requirements. With a cycle time of less than 20 seconds (for both single reel and quad counts), the XQuik II Plus is designed for operational simplicity and automation flexibility. It is easily configured to communicate with any existing MES inventory control system and a sample interface, along with detailed instructions, is provided for the customer’s IT team to quickly customize for their specific needs.

Knowledge transfer, especially from the “graying-out” experienced technical workers in our industry, is a complex, difficult family of problems.
