Current customers are also being informed of the updated equipment being put in place at the Westborough site and are thrilled for the increased capabilities.

“Our customers are very excited about the implementation of our new line, and our manufacturing team is encouraged as well,” stated Chad Burdick, NEOTech Westborough General Manager. “As the production volumes for several of our key customers continues to grow, our manufacturing teams knew it was vital for us maintain the highest levels of quality with increased accuracy and reduced manufacturing times.

At the recent SMTA Dallas Expo & Tech Forum, I spoke with Fernando Rueda, manager of the Americas for KYZEN, about the company’s newest technologies and trends he’s seeing in SMT cleaning processes. As Fernando points out, cleaning is now a requirement for most boards, and the cleaning process becomes more challenging as features get smaller and faster. No-clean technology can often make a challenging situation worse.

A Week-long Industry Extravaganza

We were back in San Diego, maybe for a “long vacation,” as IPC APEX EXPO is in Anaheim next year. Before we get to Anaheim, though, let’s talk about the show: It was a great week. I spent Sunday and Monday visiting some excellent Professional Development courses. As you know, this is a fast-changing industry, and we have to keep learning to stay ahead. On Monday, I attended the Microvia Weak Interface/Reliability subcommittee, and on Tuesday, the Ultra-HDI Technology Committee.
