SPOKANE VALLEY, WAACE Production Technologies has opened a selective soldering process development lab here.

The new lab assists in establishing optimized selective soldering processes for circuit assemblies.

“We have a complete range of selective soldering systems, preheaters, fluxers, and diagnostic instruments, including the MUST III Wetting Balance Tester from Gen3 Systems. We also have x-ray equipment and other associated diagnostic resources that we can bring to bear to help our customers develop optimized processes for optimum throughput, yields, consistent quality, and consistent profitability,” said Alan Cable, president. “In addition, we have our automated LTS lead tinning system, and manual MLTS, which are also part of our process development toolbox.”



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.
