ProFlex selective laser soldering has an XYZ gantry, generous soldering areas, and comprehensive graphic user interface. Gantry can be scaled from 8" to 8' to meet most soldering application requirements. The 70 lb. capable gantry permits multiple tooling to be attached to the end effector, so a single head can perform multiple functions, or additional heads can be added to increase output, place paste and then solder, preheat (hot air) and then solder, and more. Comes in tabletop, rotary table, dual slide shuttle, inline conveyor, hover over top of a Bosch conveyor, and other configurations. Windows based control platform.

Eastern-US: China’s New Competitor?

Parity emerges among EMS Factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
