Reading time ( words)

Epec Engineered Technologies announced that it has invested more than $1M in new equipment at its NetVia Group PCB manufacturing facility located outside of Dallas, Texas.

Specifically, they have added an Orbotech Dimension 6 AOI with Microvia inspection capability, a Mivatek 200L LED laser direct imaging system, a Microcraft EMMA Flying probe electrical tester with 1000V HiPot testing capability, along with several of the newest high-end metallurgical microscopes and an automatic metallographic grinding and polishing machine to dramatically improve throughput in our laboratory.

“Since the acquisition of NetVia by Epec Engineered Technologies in November of 2020, the growth of our business has required that we increase our capacity and our equipment resilience to ensure that we can meet our customers’ delivery and technology needs. We are dedicated to ensuring that we can manufacture high-technology rigid circuit boards and rigid-flex PCBs for our customers, which will require us to increase our equipment in terms of capacity and capability every year,” stated Ed McMahon, CEO of Epec Engineered Technologies.

The equipment that has been installed is the highest technology available in terms of speed and accuracy which increases NetVia’s ability to manufacturer PCB with 3/3 lines and spaces, thousands of test points per part, and ensuring that PCBs with even the smallest microvias are inspected using machine technology.

Jeff Forbus, President of NetVia, said: “Our team is dedicated to our customer success and with the addition of this equipment we can now move even faster to help our customers get their product to market faster. Printed circuit boards require a constant focus and attention to detail and these additions are going to help us with both.”

CES 2022 Has Begun, But Not as Expected

01/05/2022 | Dan Feinberg, Technology Editor, I-Connect007
This annual consumer electronics show in Las Vegas, which went virtual last year, still touts more than 2,200 exhibitors, but some of the biggest companies have modified their plans, and even the show itself is shorter. Many major exhibitors like Microsoft, Google, AMD, and Intel have either canceled or modified their in-person CES plans. Preshow events like CES Unveiled and the CES Media Days were still planned for Jan. 3 and 4, and Showstoppers will proceed. The change in the show's length follows two weeks of companies announcing their pivot to virtual-only plans for CES 2022.

On the (Show) Road Again

12/14/2021 | Dan Feinberg, Technology Editor, I-Connect007
Much has happened the past two years—politically, technically, and socially—that has greatly changed the path forward from what we had envisioned before the pandemic. Finally, here we are again, on the road between two full, in-person exhibition and technology events, AWE and CES. And what is the metaverse? Meta means transcendence and verse means universe, so we are approaching the capability of entering a virtual universe that is not reality but does exist outside of reality. What does that mean? It’s not just the future of Facebook, although Facebook and other social media sites will play a major role. In my opinion, the metaverse is a combination of the real world that you and those you communicate with occupy, while the XR world is generated by your devices.
