Investigation on the Assembly Process for m03015 and a Brief Look at m0201 Components

David Geiger, Robert Pennings, and Jane Feng, Flex

Over the years, components have continued to reduce in size. The latest components—m03015 and m0201—are starting to appear in the markets. The m03015 is the metric designation for the EIA 009005 and m0201 is the metric designation for the EIA 008004.

These types of components will be used in module assembly, which would include items for smart wearables where miniaturization is required for higher functional densities. SiPs—the latest term for these modules—are already seen in wearables such as watches, wristbands, and other devices. These parts will not be mainstream for some time because the 01005 components have only been used for a small portion of products today... More >

Top 5 Things to Know When Moving from Hand Assembly to Robotic Assembly

Duane Benson, Screaming Circuits

A lot of factors go into the decision to hand-build or outsource circuit boards. When the decision is to outsource, there are a few important things to consider. Some things that work fine when hand soldering may stand in the way of quality, repeatability, and reliability when machine assembling. Here are some of the most important considerations when changing from hand-build to outsourced.

Keeley Pedals Take Control of SMT Assembly
Recently, Robert Keeley Electronics made the decision to take full control of their pedal production by bringing their board assembly in house. Manncorp was there every step of the way to ensure that their conversion went as smoothly as possible. With 27 bills of materials refined over the course of 2 weeks, our expert staff consulted with Keeley to make certain that the automated SMT line they purchased could meet and exceed their production expectations. Learn more about Keeley’s experience and send your bill of materials to us if you’re interested in taking control of your PCB assembly.
