Nortech Systems Collaborates with Panasonic to Expand Manufacturing Capabilities


Reading time ( words)

Nortech Systems and Panasonic have collaborated on a new, total-line-solution installation of integrated hardware and software. It provides enhanced SMT component placement capability and quality while increasing efficiency and statistical process control (SPC) at Nortech's manufacturing facility in Mankato, Minnesota.

"This significant investment in Panasonic SMT equipment and PanaCIM software, along with Koh Young automated 3D optical inspection and solder paste inspection equipment, helps us serve our customers better and faster," says Jamey Born, Nortech Systems' EMS product manager.

This new SMT technology can place smaller components, which expands Nortech's capabilities to build much smaller PCB assemblies for medical device, industrial and aerospace/defense customers. "With SPC for manufacturing, we now have real-time process monitoring that allows us to monitor and control our SMT production," Born adds.

John Stewart, regional sales manager, Panasonic Factory Solutions Company of America, says, "This collaborative effort is an ideal and local example of two companies working toward the same goal. Nortech is a growing organization that’s strengthening its global footprint and acknowledging the expertise we bring to the table. Panasonic appreciates and looks forward to a long-term, mutually beneficial partnership."

For more than 25 years, Nortech Systems has provided world-class electronics manufacturing services (EMS) – from early stage product development and engineering through production, supply chain management and fulfillment. Nortech Systems has established a reputation for technical expertise, engineering excellence and superior customer service.

Preparing the Next-gen Tech Workforce

Knowledge transfer, especially from the “graying-out” experienced technical workers in our industry, is a complex, difficult family of problems. It differs wildly between companies, and even within divisions of the same company. One of the biggest barriers is the full manufacturing schedules in North American electronics companies that don’t leave any slack time—and the 40-hour work week is a complete fantasy for many.

Are Your Existing Machines Enough to Keep Up?

Buy new or make do? It’s an age-old debate for manufacturers who are trying to decide how best to manage machine assets inside their manufacturing facilities. New machines are expensive, but so is operating existing machines at a comparative deficit.

Finding Solutions in the Quoting Process

05/03/2022 | Duane Benson, Screaming Circuits
It’s easy to frame all our supply chain woes around the COVID-19 pandemic. However, at Screaming Circuits, we started receiving dire warnings about component shortages in early 2018. At that time, we were told that the supply upheaval could last years and that we should expect it to get much worse before it got better. Now, four years later, I would say those warnings nailed it.
