GWT has purchased a second S2O Yamaha Pick & Place machine from Yamaha/Amistar in the last 2 years. It is our 3rd Yamaha Pulse machine that complements an S20 and an M20 already in place over last few years. All three machines are paired with MPM screen printers and give us three state of the art SMT lines to serve our growing customer needs. The advantages of this new Yamaha equipment are multifold…bringing added flexibility, speed, efficiency, and space/footprint utilization. We were able to retire our Fuji line to gain added space and a consistent, uniform approach to our pick and place operation. GWT is 75% of the way to achieving its long term goal of four complete Yamaha SMT lines without having to move to an expanded area. The company also upgraded one of its Reflow Ovens to another Heller 1707 MK III that complements our other oven (Heller 1707-EXL) with both carrying seven temp zones and added quality and flexibility.

Golden West Technology is back on the map and easy to find again with an updated, attractive exterior enhancement. For the last four years our business park in Fullerton, CA…Fullerton East Business Park, has endured an adjacent Fullerton city project to improve street traffic in and around the nearby railroad tracks. Our business park had to forfeit a few of our buildings to the city in order to support this project but came out of the situation for the better and with the general funds to reinvest in the business park for the benefit of all remaining owners and tenants. The renovation included split-faced block walls at the perimeter and at trash enclosures, enhanced building entrance facades, new directional signage, totally fresh water tolerant landscaping and dry creek beds, and a more integrated external color scheme with stone veneer. The end results are fantastic…
- EKRA E4 Screen Printer — This is a fully automatic screen printer that provides for more accurate and reliable application of solder paste to the pads on the circuit board. GWT now has a full complement of automatic, with no further reliance on manual app|ication…for all of its SMT assembly lines.
- Fuji GL5 Glue Machine — GWT upgraded our previous machine forward a couple of generations from a GL2 to GL5, thus allowing for faster and more consistent application of pcb adhesive when required for assembly.
- Fuji IP3 Fine Pitch Machine — A Fuji IP3 was acquired with very low hours in order to upgrade the reliability over our previous 1P3 machine. Better planarity with this machine allows for flatter more secure pins and improved overall placements.
