2001 brings about more improvements to our management team, and once again, more new equipment! In the middle of the year we aquire two machines to support our expanding surface mount area and the BGA processes: a brand new Conceptronic 7-zone reflow oven, and a Conceptronic Freedom 3000 BGA/SMT rework and prototyping system.

The reflow oven adds to our SMT throughput, as well as capability, since larger and longer reflow machines are needed for larger and denser boards, including those with BGAs. The BGA rework system enables us to remove and replace BGAs easily and extremely accurately, as well as performing other types of rework.
