ControlTek Expands Electronics Assembly Capacity with New SMT Investment

Aug 10, 2017

Constant improvement requires diligence to ensure an organization remains ready and able to adapt to the needs of its customers.

Vancouver-based electronics manufacturer ControlTek took this advice to heart this year by investing in additional advanced SMT machines to expand its current electronics assembly capabilities. These investments included the new Juki High-Speed Pick and Place, a high-speed SMT placement machine noted for both quality and flexibility in production.

“ControlTek has long considered Juki products essential due to their quality and precision. We are confident the JUKI High Speed Pick and Place was the right choice so we continue to make our customers successful.” ControlTek President Andy LaFrazia

These capital investments support the expansion of ControlTek's SMT capabilities. ControlTek’s EMS manufacturing facility in Vancouver increased SMT capacity by 35% to include three full SMT lines. The added capacity will further improve production turnaround times while increasing manufacturing accuracy.

Continuous improvement has been a guiding force at ControlTek since its inception. Along with other recent equipment upgrades--including new selective solder, inkjet and reflow oven machines as well as AOI and wash systems--the new JUKI machine reflects ControlTek’s focus on maintaining the quality of finished products while expanding manufacturing capacity.

The new equipment also means ControlTek is better able to take on specialty PCB assembly applications--including large format PCB (up to 18"x35"), metal core PCB for LED projects, and high voltage PCB assembly for those in need of custom PCB solutions. 

ControlTek also grew its design and test capabilities this year, bringing on industry veterans David Flinchbaugh (Engineering Manager) and Dennis Griffin (Test Engineer) to lead the company’s efforts to further integrate manufacturing and engineering services and streamline testing processes.
