PARMI — Smarter SPI — Real ROI

We’re engineering more than good board – bad board finders. From analyzing SPI data in real time, to providing corrective action to operators and repairing insufficient paste deposits, you can expect a lot more from a PARMI SPI. See us at APEX Booth #935 for a demonstration!
Universal PCB Magazine Stop Clips

The ezCLIP system allows EMS providers who manually load/unload PCB magazine racks a simple way to distinguish required spacing between boards and to prevent damage on PCBs with taller components. ezCLIPs allow for easy identification & faster set-up times for production and swift loading and unloading of the boards during assembly, reflow, rework, inspection, and more!
Mentor Graphics® PCB Manufacturing Solutions

The Valor® Production Plan shop-floor planning tool provides SMT optimization parameters to improve PCB assembly operations capacity and productivity. Download our new white paper or take a test drive from virtually anywhere!

Guidelines for Component Placement
Advanced Assembly
Functionality is usually the main focus the first time someone designs a circuit board. With time and experience, designers are able to focus on improving their designs to not simply be functional but also to increase performance. A seasoned designer can make the board robust and cheap while still easy to manufacture and assemble. Particularly, those only vaguely aware of the requirements for mass methodologies of soldering, such as reflow or wave soldering, will create boards that can only be hand soldered or will require extensive manual rework.
