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.”

What’s Driving AOI Innovation and Collaboration?

03/25/2020 | Brent Fischthal, Koh Young America
When we look at the optical inspection market growth trajectory, we can see how process challenges helped create innovations. For example, solder paste inspection (SPI) has undergone a shift from 2D to 3D because the 2D inspection technologies manufacturers traditionally used to collect solder deposit images could not solve shadowing problems. Thus, companies developed 3D SPI to capture the printed solder paste height to accurately measure the total volume of paste printed. Several years later, we see the same need for surface-mounted component inspection with AOI systems.

Trends From the Show: Solder and Software

In my role as a media representative, my perspective on IPC APEX EXPO may be a bit different from that of many attendees. Since the I-Connect007 team had the opportunity to talk to many attendees and exhibitors and listen to their stories over the course of the week, our view can be particularly wide. When I reflected on all the conversations, pieces from all throughout the week coalesced and provided a different understanding of and takeaway from the show.
