Royal Circuits Invests in Additional HASL Machines from New Technology Overman

Reading time ( words)

California-based circuit board manufacturer, Royal Circuits has purchased and successfully installed their second new hot air solder leveling machine from New Technology Overman (NTO) and have placed an order for a third machine to be delivered in February of this year. The new machine allows Royal Circuits to now process both tin/lead and lead free HASL in house.

The NTO HASL machines are said to be the most precise vertical HASL machines made. It utilizes a variable speed linear unit with drive motor for the arm movement and a separate heat exchanger, both controlled by the PLC. NTO has always supplied their machines with titanium clamps and air knifes for the best possible finish available with no solder sticking to either, as well as a robust pumping system with a variable speed that will go into standby mode when not in operation, thus saving the solder life. These machines were ordered with the remote access modem so the factory can see in real time and, if requested, any issues they may have. This also allows for any needed software upgrades.

Milan Shah, President of Royal Circuits states, "We wanted to offer our customers the ability to do all processes in house and the NTO Model 2424LF HASL machine will help us do that. The NTO HASL units have proven to be reliable precision machines with easy maintenance and superior quality surface finish."

Hot on the heels of the news that U.S. President Biden signed a presidential determination in support of the printed circuit board industry, I-Connect007’s Nolan Johnson spoke with David Schild, executive director of the Printed Circuit Board Association of America, about some of the expected implications. David points out, among other things, that this signals increased momentum with government and defense to support U.S.-based printed circuit manufacturing, and the possibility that a renewed interest in the industry by private financing could possibly follow.

Organizing Materials Differently at Ventec

03/29/2023 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
At a recent industry conference, technical editor Pete Starkey caught some time with Ventec’s Mark Goodwin and Didier Mauve. In this conversation, Mark and Didier discuss Ventec’s work to curate their product offerings into functional categories based on function and target application. The pair also share their thinking on markets which they see as driving material development work. When material performance becomes an integral part of the PCB’s performance specifications, the traditional way of categorizing materials may not do the job.
