STI Acquires New High-Speed Flexible Mounter from Juki Automation Systems


Reading time ( words)

STI Electronics, Inc., a full service organization providing training services, training materials, analytical/failure analysis, prototyping, and small-to-medium volume contract PCB assembly, is pleased to announce the acquisition of a new Juki KE-3020VA High-Speed Flexible Mounter.

This new placement system provides STI’s Contract Assembly Services with a significant improvement to its capabilities.  With laser centering that also can confirm component release and tombstone picks, it still has an optimum placement rate of 20,900 chips per hour.

The electric feeder not only provides smoother component feeding, it also has double tape feeders that increases the capacity of the machine.

Complementing the new placement system is a new Juki TR6DN in-line matrix tray changer.  ThSTI2.jpge 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.

Mark McMeen, Vice President of Engineering Services, remarks: “This is just the latest addition to our continual equipment upgrades. This, coupled with our highly trained and experienced workforce, ensures that we maintain our reputation as the ‘go-to’ contract assembler.”

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.
