Our New Equipment 2019

New Equipment & Capabilities

Pro-Active Engineering is beginning 2019 with a $265k capital investment in equipment designed to improve quality management, increase throughput with automation, and create new services for our customers.

Selective Conformal Coating
Conformal coating sprays help protect components on a printed circuit board from moisture, dirt, and extreme temperatures, however, it requires a labor-intensive masking process that slows production. The purchase of the Mycronic-MYC50 in-line coating system with multi-angle rotation precisely masks means accuracy and speed that only a machine can provide. The MYC50 represents the best aspects of mechanical automation, increasing output, accuracy, and safely handling caustic chemicals.  

3D Solder Paste Inspector
With the increasing miniaturization and density of components on PCBA’s comes placement challenges these components are only as good as the micro-volumes of solder that connects them to the circuit board assembly. Pro-Active Engineering purchased the PI Primo M SPI uses multi-angle measurements to create a real-time 3D visualization of the volume of solder paste on the PCB significantly increasing the quality control process. This allows a technician to easily identify even the smallest solder defect before any components have been placed on a circuit board. The PI Primo M SPI with 3D technology is three times more precise than Pro-Active Engineering’s existing solder paste inspection system, improving production yields.

Improved Diagnostic with X-Ray
Micro BGA’s and leadless components have become increasingly popular in wearable electronics, and medical devices but present a unique challenge in that the solder connections cannot be visually inspected. This capital investment addresses that concern by adding the Jewel Box 90T to Pro-Active Engineering’s quality control system. The Jewel Box’s five axis manipulation and 5-micron x-ray source enable a technician to magnify components 2000 times, easily detecting solder bridges, solder voids, and missing solder.
