ACD Initiates Kitting System Upgrade

Feb 22, 2012

ACD, a leading supplier to the electronics industry, announces a new system for preparing projects for delivery to the manufacturing floor.

In keeping with ACD’s pursuit of ‘best practices’ within the market, the new system, in conjunction with the company’s process control and traceability software, will allow for even greater visibility of materials, both physically and within the inventory database.

ACD has reviewed all of its systems as we have prepared for our AS9100 certification, and our materials handling area is a place we felt we could improve from good to excellent, so we did,” commented Scott Fillebrown, President and CEO of ACD, about the new system.

Kit components and bare boards will be initialized into the tracking software upon arrival at the dock and placed into ESD bins and carts by Quantum Storage Systems, each carrying a unique bin identification barcode. This system of standardized bin sizes will allow for consistent handling of materials while still maintaining the maximum flexibility needed to service ACD's diverse customer base and workload, from small quick-turn prototype runs to large production builds.


Founded in 1984, ACD’s services comprise complete board layout services, ATE engineering services, DFM/DFA capability, printed circuit fabrication, component procurement, SMT and thru-hole mixed technology assembly, box build, rework, X-Ray, flying probe and functional test, and development.
