There have been vast improvements in Surface Mount Technology (SMT) over the years.
Recently, Falconer Electronics Inc (FEI) made a new investment in Surface Mount Technology by purchasing the DDM Novastar LE40V Benchtop Automated Pick and Place Machine.
Investing in SMT offers incredible benefits and opportunities for our customers. Let’s take a deeper look.
Benefits of Surface Mount Technology
One of the many benefits that surface mount delivers includes improving thermal performance.
Additionally, the accuracy of component placement is another significant benefit with SMT. The ability to place state-of-the-art miniaturized electronic components such as resistors, capacitors and LED’s certainly offers high level precision with manufacturing printed circuit boards.
Furthermore, the supply chain is major benefactor with drastically reduced production times thus increasing production volume.
Increasing speed and accuracy helps to reduce prices.
Therefore, all of these factors work together to bring a tremendous competitive advantage for our customers.
Especially, on low-volume, high-mix runs which is a specialty for our team.
Printed Circuit Board Assembly
Once the circuit board leaves the Surface Mount department, in most cases, additional components such as wires require soldering.
FEI has been specializing in soldering Printed Circuit Boards for over 30 years. However, soldering and producing printed circuit boards takes a talented skill set. It requires precision as well as a steady hand.
Furthermore, Falconer Electronics has been blessed to have a highly talented team. Surprisingly, this team brings over 100 years of soldering experience.
The longevity of each staff member is a true testament of their commitment. Along with their dedication to the craft.
Additionally, exceeding customer expectations is a daily goal.
Therefore, combining the vast experience of our seasoned staff with new technology brings a unique combination. One that has our customers excited.
Partnering with Volt Vision
FEI partners on a number of projects with LED lighting design and electronics consulting firm Volt Vision.
Volt Vision President, Steve French says:
Surface Mount Technology offers faster time to market, higher density, and lowers cost all while vastly improving reliability. This is a game changer for customers at Falconer Electronics and Volt Vision. Surface Mount Technology provides an outstanding opportunity to dramatically increase the profitability for our customers.
Some of our current projects include commercial vehicle lighting and health care vehicle transportation.
Partnering with industry experts maintains a strong competitive advantage for our team.
