Class leading equipment and technology

The equipment we use is carefully chosen to produce the most accurate results with the least waste possible. Several of our key pieces of equipment aren’t found anywhere else in New Zealand and allow us to provide high levels of flexibility and increased accuracy across each product we produce.

  • Solder paste jet printer

    By using jet printing technology for our solder paste application, we provide high levels of flexibility for our customers with the ability to make changes and modifications to solder paste profiles during a run. If necessary this gives the option to maximise yields by correcting paste deposition within a run. Jet printing negates the need for traditional stencils and is more environmentally friendly as it produces less waste and doesn’t require the production, shipping and storage of traditional stencils. Any change requirements do not need new revision stencils to be produced, simply changes to the software program, saving time and money.

  • Surface mount pick and place

    Our SMT pick and placement capability is optimised for lower volume high mix environments. It enables full traceability of all components placed on circuit boards, using individual barcodes for accuracy. Tracking each component within the management software reduces errors and streamlines throughput process. Our equipment can also verify values and tolerances of each component while in process to check for any unacceptable tolerance variations. Thus adding to maximum yield efficiencies and ensuring any new component changes during process are monitored for compliance.

  • Solder reflow oven

    Our 6.5m long reflow oven features 20 separate temperature zones, 10 on the top side and 10 on the bottom side of the PCBA. This gives excellent variability and control for fully customisable temperature profiles which are needed with the ever increasing thermal differences of high mass and very small components. This control allows excellent reflow and also minimises the chance of potential thermal damage to individual components.

  • Automated optical inspection (AOI)

    With high-quality AOI in place, we’re able to automatically compare 3D models and high-resolution images of a finished product to the product’s Golden Sample and identify any inconsistencies. In addition solder profiles can be checked for compliance with industry standard IPC requirements. Especially useful for product iterations and NPI, our AOI systems mean we can remain flexible and make necessary changes quickly thus reducing process times and ensuring further quality checks.

  • X-ray imaging

    With the increased prevalence of bottom terminated components (BTC), process setting and checking for correct solder joints is vital and not possible without an X-Ray machine. Our new technology X-Ray machine allows us to see below the surface to check quality and ensure all connections have been made properly. It is also used as a process check tool to ensure continued in process control and thus high yields. This also provides the capability to check for counterfeit components supply if required.

  • Selective soldering

    Our selective solder station provides exceptional quality of solder joints for through hole components. With the multiple and varied requirements of products that we manufacture, the selective solder machine also gives great flexibility to be able to pre define, in software, the specific areas of the PCBA that requires soldering and those that don't. Dwell times and control of solder temperature provide exceptional and very repeatable results.
