2008

2008 becomes a year of organization and strengthening our core assets – our employees. We also carry out some shop improvements. There are no major equipment purchases, but we tackle an area we’ve wanted to for a few years new: software.

2003

We start this year off with more new equipment! In January, we install an AOI (Automated Optical Inspection) machine – this is a machine that will visually inspect circuit boards for missing parts, orientation and even color bands and nomenclature on the components. This is especially useful for inspecting SMT assemblies, since the parts are […]

2002 brings many challenges, number one being the global “recession”. We see orders pushed out in a number of the industries we serve, and we weather it the best we can by promoting and producing.

The reflow oven […]

In March we make the decision to upgrade our wave-soldering machine and washer – trading in the older machines to purchase brand new ones.

The quality and performance […]
