GWT Adds Enhanced X-Ray Inspection Capability
GWT has just acquired a CRï¿½Technology, CRX-2000 xï¿½ray machine that immediately upgrades our present capability. This machine has a larger xï¿½ray chamber comparatively speaking and the ability for 360 degree rotation and 30 degree tiit aliows for better overall viewing and inspection.
GWT Acquires More Equipment
- 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.
Closed Loop Water System Installed!
A closed loop water system from AKS offers many benefits to the Company as well as the local community and environment. GWT instantly becomes a more efficient consumer of water resources. Furthermore, the new system helps us achieve higher level cleanliness of assemblies on behalf of our customers. Lastly, this approach is so much more environmentally conscious in that tainted, dirty water is no longer dumped into the public drainage system.
Added Selective Soldering Station: Pillarhouse, JADE S-200
The JADE S-200 station by Pillarhouse provides selective soldering of through hole components to printed circuit boards at a low cost approach with inherently smaller bath design ( compared to wave solder ) and the added advantage of quick change capabilities i.e., from lead free to eutectic and visa versa. In addition, with the nitrogen gas feature, solder joints are inherently improved.
GWT Acquires new Equipment and Capabilities
A). Added Scienscope Video Inspection System Utilizing its ZOOM Lens Magnification, High Resolution Camera and the ability to view images on large LCD screen significantly improves the video inspection of electronic assemblies. Greatly enhances our communication to Customers and Vendors. B). Added multiple Fuji CP 743 Chip Shooters Accepting up to 140 device inputs at placement speeds of 0.068/shot and rated at 52,000 CPH with +/- .066 mm accuracy and 0201 ready greatly improves automated SMT assembly capabilities. C). Added Automated Conformal Coating Machines and Facility: PVA 750 Combined with GWT’s traditional manual conformal coating capabilities, The PVA 750 adds accuracy and thickness precision to the conformal coating process. D). Added Vacuum Capability to the Epoxy Potting Process Provides additional capability to minimize voids in our product encapsulation process.
