ACI Technologies and Essemtec Strengthen Partnership

Jun 04, 2014

Essemtec, the Swiss manufacturer of production systems for electronic assembly and packaging, announces that it has renewed its partnership with ACI Technologies, Inc. (ACI). Under the agreement, Essemtec has provided ACI with a complete SMT line. In return, Essemtec uses ACI’s world-class facility for demos, seminars, training, etc.

The Essemtec line at ACI’s facility now includes a solder jet printer. Jetting of solder paste instead of printing saves costs for stencils, eliminates printing errors and enhances production flexibility especially for lower to midsize volumes. Until now, separate machines had to be bought to fulfil these requirements. Essemtec has merged its dispensing and pick-and-place know-how from the Scorpion and Paraquda machines into a SMT production centre.

The combination of jet printing with pick-and-place eliminates ACI’s need to program two different machines and reduces the investment costs dramatically. The return on investment (ROI) of the jet printing option is achieved with less than 100 stencils and even faster when the products require stepped stencils. Cleaning of the valve is an easy and quick (5-10 minutes) task.

ACI is a scientific research corporation dedicated to the advancement of electronics manufacturing processes and materials for The Department of Defense and industry. The company operates the U.S. Navy's Center of Excellence in Electronics Manufacturing (Electronics Manufacturing Productivity Facility EMPF), and the U.S. Army's Electronics Sustainment Center (AESC). The EMPF focuses on the development, application and transfer of new electronics manufacturing technology by partnering with industry, academia and government centers and laboratories in the United States in order to maximize available research capabilities at the lowest possible cost. ACI Technologies offers failure analysys services, IPC training and custom electronics manufacturing courses. For more information, visit www.aciusa.org.

ACI Technologies’ Philadelphia headquarters is conveniently located near the Philadelphia airport and members of the electronics field are always welcome to tour the state-of-the-art facility. Contact your local Essemtec representative to schedule an equipment demonstration and tour the Essemtec SMT line.
