AQS, Inc., a state-of-the-art EMS provider, has purchased a Nitrogen Generator from South-Tek Systems. A leading designer and manufacturer of Nitrogen generation technology, South-Tek’s Nitrogen Generators are ideal for a vast range of electronic manufacturing, military, lab and commercial applications. The sale was facilitated by the Texas-based manufacturers’ representative Southwest Systems Technology.
“I am very impressed with AQS’ business model, facility and highly technical employees,” said Danny Woodlief, Electronics Lead at South-Tek. “AQS’ clarity and concise understanding of Nitrogen Generation brought this project to life quicker, as they fully understood the >50 percent savings in their Nitrogen Gas consumption costs. It is truly very rewarding when you bring great value and savings to your customer, when we are all in a time where operating expenses need to be significantly reduced.”
The new Nitrogen Generator was installed at AQS’ state-of-the-art facility in Dallas, TX, where the company assembles PCBs for prototyping and mass production. The team can support NPI prototypes to mass production. AQS is flexible in modifying PCBs for exact qualifications whether it is single or complex multiple layered boards.
Brenda Martin, Director of Business Development at AQS, commented: "Nitrogen serves to displace oxygen in the soldering process. Specifically, selective, reflow and wave soldering equipment. This helps reduce costs while meeting our customers’ stringent requirements."
Nitrogen Generators are an efficient and green solution to meeting Nitrogen Gas needs. Facilities that install South-Tek’s N2 GEN systems or commercial systems experience lower operating costs while producing higher quality Nitrogen Gas on-demand at the point of process. Because the Nitrogen Generating Systems eliminate the necessity of converting N2 gas into liquid form for transportation and delivery, they consume far less energy than the alternative bulk gas supply.
