Season Group Invests in New Equipment for USA and Mexico Operations


Reading time ( words)

Season Group, the global, vertically integrated EMS company, has announced that it has made a significant investment in new SMT and Cable Assembly equipment for its San Antonio, Texas and Reynosa, Mexico sites.

The San Antonio site has installed two Juki SMT placement machines that will significantly boost capacity and capability at the site. In addition, Season has added a second X-Ray machine to support the increased requirement for complex BGA placement at that site.

The Reynosa site is benefiting from an additional MPM Screen Printer, Selective Solder machinery and a Flying Probe test platform (to boost its SMT capability) as well as an additional Artos Cut, Strip and Crimp machine for its Cable Assembly business. Commenting on the investment, Carl Hung, President and CEO said “We continually review our capacity utilization across all sites and it was apparent that this investment was needed in San Antonio in order to ensure that we can meet the growing demand from customers in USA. It was also the right time to continue the investment at the Reynosa site in order to stay ahead of the demand curve that we are seeing for Mexico production.”

Solder in PCBA: Can’t Live Without It... or Can We?

02/17/2020 | Joe Fjelstad, Verdant Electronics
For most of its historical use in electronics, the solder alloy of choice was tin-lead, either an Sn60/Pb40 alloy or the Sn63/ Pb37 eutectic version of the tin-lead alloy. These two alloys were the workhorses of the industry. They were both well understood in terms of their processing and reliability—that is, until the advent of lead-free, a well-meaning but ill-conceived and poorly executed conversion, forced on the industry by the European Union in 2006.
