Valtronic Expands SMT Line

Reading time ( words)

Valtronic, innovator and manufacturer of miniaturized electronic products for trusted medical device partners, attended the 2016 IPC APEX EXPO exhibition last week at the Las Vegas Convention Center and invested in new JUKI equipment for its Solon, Ohio-based location.

In addition to learning more about industry highlights and new technologies during the IPC APEX show, Valtronic focused its strategy at the exhibition for investment opportunities in new equipment to duplicate its other JUKI SMT line. The team also considered other equipment to benefit the company in technology upgrades. The company was searching for innovative, quality machines at competitive prices to continue furthering its mission of providing advanced microelectronics to customers.

On March 17, Valtronic purchased the TR6DNR-D Matrix Tray Changer from Juki Automation Systems, along with additional tape feeders. The company will use the tray changer to duplicate its second JUKI SMT Line, enabling Valtronic to run various products and allowing various feeders and overall efficiency to the production line.

Juki’s Matrix tray changers are part of a modular product line that can be matched to customers’ exact requirements, providing the optimum combination of productivity, flexibility and reliability with the lowest cost of ownership. The TR-6 is equipped with a dual shuttle that brings the components to the head for picking. The big advantage of this system is that no feeder space is lost. Components with a minimum flat surface of 5x5 mm can be picked with a vacuum nozzle. Other rectangular components such as BGA, FBGA and connectors with a minimum outline of 17x17 mm will be handled mechanically.

CFX: The Next Step Toward the Future of Factories

05/07/2018 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
For the past two to three years, almost every exhibitor in almost every trade show focused on the electronics manufacturing industry has an "Industry 4.0 Compatible" sign in their booth. As of today, the best question to ask is, "Compatible with what?" There has really been no standard yet developed toward this goal, and Industry 4.0 has been just a buzz word.
