CeTaQ Announces the Benefits of Regular MCA Testing in SMT Production

May 18, 2008

HUDSON, NH � May 15, 2008 � CeTaQ, the leader in quality analysis and optimization of SMT production processes, announces that using machine capability analysis (MCA) is beneficial in SMT production.

Using capable and reliable production equipment increases yield, availability, and machine efficiency. The correct equipment produces less failure and results in fewer repair costs.

Knowing whether or not the equipment will work within the desired specification limits can save money by preventing costly and incorrect investment decisions. This makes technology changes more cost effective such as changing from 0201 to 01005 chips, implementing successful lead-free manufacturing and qualifying complex PCB assembly processes with Cpk measurement of non-orthogonal placement angles.

Additionally, tracking the historical behavior of production equipment helps to optimize repair and maintenance. Using MCA testing to measure production equipment capability helps determine end of life equipment performance and provides statistically backed investment decisions when purchasing new equipment. CeTaQ�s mobile MCA is the quickest and cost effective method to verify promised specifications during new installations. Finally, CeTaQ�s measurement service provides serialized capability reports necessary for quality audit documentation. This unique measurement method provides many more realized benefits through implementation of regular MCA testing. For more information, visit http://www.cetaq.com.
