Valtronic Invests in Leading Edge SMT Manufacturing Equipment

SOLON, Ohio, March 27, 2014 — (PRNewswire) —  Valtronic, an electronic contract manufacturer announced the acquisition of the latest leading edge surface mount assembly equipment for improved flexibility and production quality for their U.S. facility. Jay Wimer, Chief Executive Officer of the Valtronic U.S. facility said, "The investment of state-of-the-art equipment stems from the need to stay current with growing business needs and ahead of the competition."

Leading Edge SMT Line - pictured is the JUKI KE3020 flexible placement system

The purchase of two lines for Surface Mount Technology includes a precision JUKI K3 fully automatic screen printer, a JUKI high speed flexible parts placer KE-3020 VLN, and a JUKI RS800 eco-friendly reflow oven.

The K3 screen printer will utilize patented mathematical calculating algorithm's to maintain the machines highest accuracy print alignment achieving 01-005 (0402 metric) printing. The printer was designed to handle requirements of different pressures on the front and rear squeegees and of the squeegee's leveling stability. These features will prevent solder paste leakage. The K3 additionally offers a 2D Solder Paste Inspection System which immediately identifies any solder paste deposition defects at critical locations.

JUKI's newest model, the KE-3020 VLN, offers the optimum flexible placement system for high-density placements. From placing a wide range of components such as 01-005's (0402) and ICs to odd-forms, this leading technology is built for accuracy and speed. Placement speeds range from 17,100 CPH (components per hour) to 2,200 CPH: IC (vision centering/effective tact). The multi-nozzle laser head includes six nozzles plus one high resolution head. Component sizes range from 01-005 to 47 mm square components.

The eco-friendly RS series Reflow Oven includes an Independent Air Velocity Controlling System which allows for flexible processing control. The efficiently of this machine provides energy savings while lowering carbon emissions. By filtering air or N2 back to its oven chamber, the Reflow Oven reduces thermal loss while getting better flux reclamation.

Both lines are scheduled for installation in the spring of 2014.
