Firstronic continues to add equipment in its Juarez, Mexico facility as it expands to support business growth, predominately in the automotive sector. This quarter, it installed an IBL CX800 inline vapor phase reflow system and an ERSA Powerflow wave soldering system. The vapor phase reflow system is the third CX model it has installed.
"We now have four SMT lines running in Juarez. The new equipment is being installed to support three new automotive programs we are launching that involve keyless ignition modules, proximity door handle sensors and engine sensors," said Steve Fraser, Firstronic’s Vice President of Operations.
