Atlantech Expands Sales Team on the Back of Kurtz Ersa Growth

Reading time ( words)

Kurtz Ersa North America is seeing strong demand for its new equipment, including rework systems, N2 wave soldering and selective soldering systems. To keep up with growing demand, Atlantech Inc.—which manages and sells to the Mid-Atlantic States, including Maryland, Washington D.C., Delaware, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina for the past 12 years with Kurtz Ersa—has hired Bryce Timms as its newest sales representative in Eastern Tennessee, South Carolina, Georgia, and selected accounts in North Carolina.

"I am so very pleased to have Bryce on board," said Nagy Bayoumi, president of Atlantech. "His expertise is a solid fit for us. Our customers' equipment requirements are highly technically demanding, for which Ersa provides the solutions. Bryce understands these needs."

Atlantech established itself as an engineering and process solutions company in March of 1990 to service the printed circuit board (PCB) industry. As the industry took a downturn, Atlantech redirected its efforts and knowledge to focus on the SMT and microelectronics industries in the early 2000s.

Timms brings expertise in product management and application/service engineering in through-hole and selective soldering technologies to represent Ersa's new line of selective solder, reflow and rework equipment, and more.

"I am thrilled to have the opportunity to represent  Ersa, and to be with Atlantech," commented Timms. "I know the demands of our customers, so I know that Ersa's high-end equipment, capabilities and service will absolutely meet those demands."

Comparing Soldering Results of ENIG and EPIG Post-steam Exposure

09/11/2019 | Jon Bengston and Richard DePoto, Uyemura International USA
Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) is now a well-regarded finish used to enhance and preserve the solderability of copper circuits. Electroless palladium immersion gold (EPIG), meanwhile, is a new surface finish also for enhancing and preserving solderability—but with the advantage of eliminating electroless nickel from the deposit layer. This feature has become increasingly important with the increasing use of high-frequency PCB designs whereby nickel’s magnetic properties are detrimental.

PCB Design Training: More Critical Than Ever

I interviewed Gary Ferrari of FTG at the IPC High-Reliability Forum and Microvia Summit in Baltimore. Gary is a co-founder of the IPC Designers Council and a longtime advocate for PCB design and PCB designers. We discussed the crucial role that PCB designers play in the entire electronics development process, and how IPC and the Designers Council are helping to educate and inform the next generation of designers.
