SAE Circuits Express Installs New NTO Lead Free Hot Air Level Machine


Reading time ( words)

SAE Circuits Express has installed a new NTO 2424-LF lead-free hot air solder leveling machine. This machine is recipe driven and will provide industry-leading coating consistency and surface finish. This equipment has undergone final process validation and is fully operational and released into production. The NTO machine will give SAE Circuits Express the in-house capability for lead free HASL coating and gives us the ability to meet our customer's demand for lead free HASL PCBs in as little as 48 hrs.

Dan Spencer, Director of Operations of SAE Circuits Express, stated, “Working with David Dye of Quickturn Inc. to secure this machine was an excellent experience. Dave was able to get us a machine quickly, the installation went very smoothly and we were up and running in a week from delivery.”

Spencer went on to say, “The addition of this process to our in-house stable of surface finishes has enabled us to satisfy a number of our customer's requests for lead-free HASL boards in compressed lead times and is one more step in the evolution of SAE Circuits Express to an industry-leader in quick turn and high-mix lower volume printed circuit production.”

Eric Overman, owner of Netherlands-based New Technology Overman commented, “It was a pleasure to install this HASL NTO-2424LF machine at SAE Circuit express in Boulder(CO). SAE did a great job preparing for this project making it a very smooth install for us. “

While walking around the PCB hall at productronica, I was approached by my good friend Gene Weiner. Gene emphatically directed me to the Elga booth to find out about their new extra-thick dry film that can image extremely fine features with a perfectly perpendicular sidewall. Elga Europe CEO Giorgio Favini filled me in on the details.
