Accurate Engineering Purchases New Hot Air Solder Leveler from New Technology Overman

Reading time ( words)

California based circuit board manufacturer, Accurate Engineering has purchased a new NTO-1824LF HASL machine to upgrade that process and give their customers an unsurpassed surface finish.  The NTO HAL machines offer easy access to the solder pump via a quick disconnect mounting plate and are very easy to remove for cleaning of the pump area.  The NTO machine, in combination with the Quick Flex fixture, can process flex and thin core as well as rigid panels.  NTO offers several sizes of machines as well as custom features upon request.

Shital Desai, C.O.O. of Accurate Engineering, states, “David Dye of Quick Turn, Inc. has helped us maintain our older Avalon HAL machine for years in order to keep us running after Avalon closed. We knew that by purchasing from him we would receive the same support as he has given to us on a machine he didn’t even sell.  NTO offered several size options, so we were able to purchase just what we needed to fit our budget.”

Chapter 2 Excerpt from the Book ‘Thermal Management: A Fabricator's Perspective’

12/21/2020 | Anaya Vardya, American Standard Circuits
Insulated metal PCBs (IMPCB) or metal-clad PCBs (MCPCB) are a thermal management design that utilizes a layer of solid metal to dissipate the heat generated by the various components on the PCBs. When metal is attached to a PCB, the bonding material can either be thermally conductive but electrically isolative (IMPCBs or MCPCBs), or in the case of RF/microwave circuits, the bonding material may be both electrically and thermally conductive. The reason that RF designers usually have the bonding material thermally and electrically conductive is that they are using this not only as a heat sink but also as part of the ground layer. The design considerations are quite different for these different applications.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

12/18/2020 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Some years, the middle of December is marked by a distinct lack of news in PCB design, fabrication and assembly. Much of the industry often takes off around this time to get a head start on the holidays, or to squeeze in a much-needed vacation. But 2020 is not one of those years. Most of us aren’t traveling anywhere farther than the refrigerator this year, and everyone seems to still be working, albeit from their home offices. And companies in the PCB community continue to make news.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

12/11/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
This week’s mainstream news was dominated—well, my personalized online news feed was, at least—by ballistics. SpaceX was in the news daily for lobbing multiple pieces of iron, even as their CEO took his household suborbital, leaving California and touching down in Texas. Pandemic numbers charts continue their skyward trajectory worldwide. The ever-present military tests and technology demonstrations, seemed a bit more commonplace this week as well. Worldwide political news, in general, seemed to follow parabolic curves like an Australian boomerang, veering off in unexpected ways only to suddenly cut a curving path and return.
