Recognizing the opportunity to exercise greater control of product quality and time to market, Oven Industries Inc. has joined the growing number of OEMs taking PCB assembly in-house. The company, in Mechanicsburg, PA, recently acquired a Manncorp turnkey line to assemble the circuit boards for its numerous products used in temperature monitoring, sensing and control. A sister company that also uses the line builds small vacuum ovens found in leading edge medical equipment.
Oven Industries’ turnkey equipment includes Manncorp’s MC-1400 automatic stencil printer, the MC Series dual-head 7,000 cph pick and place, CR5000F 5-zone lead-free reflow oven, and CT series inspection conveyor. These machines populate approximately 50 different board types with an average of 80 components. “That throughput number,” according to Sales & Marketing Manager Richard Goodhart, “has been increasing almost daily. That’s why we wanted a pick and place with plenty of flexibility and feeder space. The MC gives exactly what we need. It also helped us attain international quality control recognition with certification from AS/EN/JISQ9100 - Revision B and ISO 9001:2008.
Goodhart stated that Manncorp came into the picture after his company looked into used equipment. “They proved that we could own their line for less than pre-owned. What’s more, their tech even trained our people to run it without new hires.”
Manncorp offers pick-and-place machines, stencil printers, reflow ovens, wave solder machines, turnkey systems, solder pastes, board cleaners, desiccant cabinets, rework systems and more.
