Jeff Hughes vice president of Hughes Circuits explained, “We have always been fans of the Excellon platform, and have been for years!  The products we produce require the utmost in quality and accuracy.  It made sense when deciding add to our capital equipment plan that we upgrade, and get the benefit of familiarity, and ease of use.  These machines are welcome additions to Hughes Circuits Inc.  Looking forward to the rewards the increased capacity will bring.”

Mike Sparidaens, vice president of sales at Excellon mentions, “The dual spindle HS-1L has brought much needed flexibility to drilling and fabrication departments. The HS-1L with both high-speed drill and drill/router spindles, complemented with a CCD Vision system, has been an all-around winner.  Product quality, speed and ease of use with CNC-7 have all been noted, and with such feedback, we know that we’re heading in the right direction with our new systems.  Furthermore, we are pleased that Hughes Circuits Inc. has chosen continued partnership with the Excellon team.”

Excellon is recognized worldwide as a leader in installed PCB Drilling systems with products ranging from single and multiple station mechanical drilling machines to hybrid laser precision via formation and routing systems.

While there are many Chinese companies now selling in the United States, I wanted to find one in Taiwan that is penetrating the U.S. market. I was delighted to come across EISO Enterprise Co. Ltd., a printed circuit board fabricator located in Taiwan. I know that the American companies are usually looking for PCB global partners in countries other than China, which made my conversation with Gary (Jung Kun) Chien all the more interesting, especially when he shared his thoughts on the U.S-China trade wars.

Quality and Continuous Improvement

02/24/2021 | Patrick Valentine, UYEMURA USA
The concern for quality control and reduced product variation can be traced back centuries. Archaic quality control methods were used by the Xia Dynasty in 2100 BC in ancient China. During the late 1290s in medieval Europe, guilds—the pre-cursor to unions—were responsible for product and service quality. From 1700 to 1900, product quality was determined by the individual craftsman’s efforts. At the close of the 19th century, Eli Whitney introduced standardized, interchangeable parts to simplify assembly.
