MINNEAPOLIS and ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill.—Nortech Systems Inc. and Panasonic have collaborated on a new total-line installation of integrated hardware and software, the companies announced recently. The installation provides enhanced surface mount technology (SMT) component placement capability and quality while increasing efficiency and Statistical Process Control (SPC) at Nortech’s manufacturing facility in Mankato, Minnesota.
“This significant investment in Panasonic SMT equipment and PanaCIM® software, along with Koh Young automated 3D optical inspection and solder paste inspection equipment, helps us serve our customers better and faster,” said Jamey Born, Nortech Systems’ EMS product manager, in a press release. The new SMT technology can place smaller components, which expands Nortech’s capabilities to build much smaller printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs) for medical device, industrial, and aerospace/defense customers.
