ABX Expands Factory Technology Video Library

In 2017 ABX Engineering celebrates over 31 years of serving our customers offering full turnkey manufacturing, from new product introduction through volume turnkey manufacturing and Electromechanical Assembly. ABX is ISO 9001-2008, ISO 13485-2003 and AS9100C certified, ITAR registered with fully trained workforce to IPC 610 Class II & Class III, J-STD-001 with certified trainers on staff. Production is on-shore with 55,000 square foot of manufacturing facilities in Burlingame, California and sales support offices in San Diego CA and Dedham MA.

ABX has recently added new videos to the ABX website to help perspective customers, engineers, management and quality better understand the manufacturing technologies available at ABX. These brief videos include more information on surface mount technology and associated supporting technologies in areas like selective wave solder, X-Ray inspection, automated optical inspection (AOI) and Ruggedized assembly.

Sales Program Manager, Joe Gotisar stated “we are building our video library to give perspective and existing customers a better understanding of the technologies available in our factory. Often recently graduated engineers for example have a very strong understanding of electronics, software and systems, but without having had the opportunity to spend time in a factory they don’t fully understand the assembly, soldering and manufacturing processes. Our video’s are aimed at providing a basic overview of how the PCBA’s are built, inspected, tested and other processes, to help build a foundation of knowledge beyond simply the design. Its a great pre-cursor to a factory tour for a perspective or current client. We hope to continue to expand our technology videos library so along with our Factory Tour Video, it gives our customers the ability to tour ABX at their convenience as well refresh their knowledge on particular areas like SMT.”

ABX adds SIPLACE SX SMT Pick and Place to increase SMT Throughput and Capabilities

In 2017 ABX Engineering celebrates over 31 years of serving our customers offering full turnkey manufacturing, from new product introduction through volume turnkey manufacturing and Electromechanical Assembly. ABX is ISO 9001-2008, ISO 13485-2003 and AS9100C certified, ITAR registered with fully trained workforce to IPC 610 Class II & Class III, J-STD-001 with certified trainers on staff. Production is on-shore with 55,000 square foot of manufacturing facilities in Burlingame, California and sales support offices in San Diego CA and Dedham MA.

ABX has added the SIPLACE SX SMT Pick and Place machine to further increase capacity, throughput and support of more complex builds. The SIPLACE SX provides increased flexibility as compared to classic SMT lines where product changeovers require cumbersome reconfigurations and smaller lot sizes can drive up unit costs.

The SIPLACE SX with its interchangeable gantries provides ABX with a scalable alternative to inflexible machines and rigid SMT line configurations. Interchangeable gantries, heads with software controlled placement modes, intelligent X-feeders and other features provide great flexibility to allow ABX to better support product change overs and both small and large production runs. Overall capacity (SMT throughput) will increase by over 20% with the addition of the SIPLACE SX, but more important line flexibility will increase significantly allowing ABX to better support our customers who’s product portfolios also include lower volume runners, as well as NPI production and FastTrack builds. The SIPLACE SX has the capability of placing 01005 components increasing accuracy to 22 microns from the current 135 microns.
