NEOTech, a leading provider of electronic manufacturing services (EMS), design engineering, and supply chain solutions in the high-tech industrial, medical device, and aerospace/defense markets, is thrilled to announce the expansion of their state-of-the-art failure analysis lab at their Agave manufacturing site in Juarez, Mexico to provide customers with enhanced levels of product quality assurance. As a leader in electronic manufacturing of advanced high-tech products for OEMs, NEOTech continues to offer best-in-class services by showcasing their commitment to investing in state-of-the-art equipment. This commitment to quality ensures NEOTech’s customers keep their products ahead of their competitors.
NEOTech is well known in the industry for its reputation to provide high-quality and high-reliability electronic manufacturing services with the continued investment in cutting-edge manufacturing equipment. Having their failure analysis lab integrated as part of their inspection and manufacturing process at their largest production facility in Mexico, NEOTech can locate supplier or production defects in microscopic details to avoid unexpected problems with products in the field. The success of the failure analysis lab in Mexico blazes the trail for similar labs to be implemented at NEOTech’s other manufacturing sites in Mexico and the US.
“Our team of engineers and technicians, all experts in product failure analysis, and our investment in top-of-the-line analysis equipment, gives our customers the advantage that we can analyze and identify design or manufacturing defects before they effect production volumes,” stated Kunal Sharma, President and Chief Operating Officer. “With decades of combined experience in multiple engineering disciplines, our product failure analysis team uses equipment like our Scan Electron and Elemental Analysis Microscope to quickly and thoroughly locate mechanical anomalies and inconsistent chemical compositions. Along with the detailed analysis, our team also contributes to finding creative solutions that work best for everyone, ensuring our customers’ product quality stays at the top of the industry.”
Along with their manufacturing capabilities in the US, NEOTech provides options for high-tech electronics manufacturing in Mexico with four strategically located plants. The Tijuana sites, situated in the greater Baja California region, include top-of-the-line PCBA manufacturing along with NEOTech’s Interconnect Center of Excellence. The Tijuana sites, in conjunction with NEOTech's two state-of-the-art locations in Juarez, Mexico, boast cutting-edge manufacturing technologies and supply chain management capabilities, elevating NEOTech to the forefront of the EMS industry.
NEOTech’s Interconnect Center of Excellence represents innovation and excellence in custom cable manufacturing solutions, wire harness manufacturing, and wire harness assembly. The three additional manufacturing sites provide industry-leading PCBA manufacturing, custom testing stations, and high-level assembly capabilities for some of the world’s most advanced products. With a mere five-minute drive from the US border to all four facilities, the facilities embody NEOTech’s commitment to proximity, efficiency, and quality. By seamlessly merging their diverse expertise in building printed circuit board assemblies and intricate systems integration, NEOTech stands out as the premier end-to-end, one-stop destination for delivering innovative products that set new industry standards.
November’s issue of Design007 Magazine had an excellent theme that evolved around design simplification. There were exceptionally good articles about how to reduce over-constrained or needlessly complex designs. One significant time-consuming category is the creation of many design files and drawings which lead to lengthy creation and interpretation time along with the considerable time to resolve conflicting or erroneous information.
Statement of Support from IPC for New Actions to Strengthen America’s Supply Chains, Lower Costs for Families, and Secure Key Sectors11/27/2023 | IPC
IPC welcomes the actions outlined today by the U.S. Government “to strengthen supply chains critical to America’s economic and national security.”
On May 11, 2023, Reps. Blake Moore (R-UT) and Anna Eshoo (D-CA) introduced the Protecting Circuit Boards and Substrates (PCB) Act to Congress. In October, I had the great pleasure of discussing the bipartisan Protecting Circuit Boards and Substrates Act with Congressman Moore, who represents Utah’s First Congressional District. He shared his thoughts on how supporting and investing in the domestic PCB industry can help bolster American security.
While previous industrial revolutions have introduced factories, mass production, and computer-controlled systems, the advent of Industry 4.0 and the concept of the Smart factory have ushered in a new era in PCB manufacturing. For the PCB industry it is a very ambitious and aspirational objective to evolve from disconnected processes to an integrated system with automated data capture, real-time data analysis, process visualization, autonomous control, and self-correcting processes.
