Press release date: February 5, 2014

Victor, New York – Signaling a long-term commitment to its Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) and Custom Manufacturing businesses, REDCOM Laboratories Inc. today announces the availability of a new high-speed Surface Mount Technology (SMT) assembly line. Located at company headquarters in Victor, NY, the new line comprises state-of-the-art assembly and inspection equipment along with the latest-generation of on-line New Product Introduction (NPI) and performance monitoring tools, all tied together on a dedicated network. The line will deliver substantial efficiency gains not only in the actual assembly process (assembling and inspecting Printed Circuit Board Assemblies—PCBAs), but also in component placement programming and line set-up.

Linked by the latest in conveyor and loading technology, the elements of the new production system are:
• Universal Fuzion SMT Component Placement System (48K placements/hour)
• MPM® Momentum® Stencil Printer
• Vitronics Soltec XPM3i 820 Reflow Soldering System
• KISS-104 Automated Selective Solder machine
• Vi Technology 5K SPECTRO Automated Optical Inspection
• Air-Vac Engineering ONYX 29 Advanced SMT Production Rework & Assembly

“We’re excited by this investment in new automated technology and additional capability,” said REDCOM VP of Manufacturing Steve Husband. “It’s not just about raising first-pass yields and increased capacity—we’re expecting a huge overall gain in productivity and quality, making us a preferred solution for initial prototype and production-level volumes in the contract manufacturing marketplace. We are eager to quote new and repeat business and confirm both our, and our customer’s, expectations.”

REDCOM EMS launched in April of 2011, chartered to provide contract electronics manufacturing services to OEMs. Today the business is solidly established and in growth mode, adding capabilities and expanding its reach beyond Rochester and the Finger Lakes Region of New York State. Customers in industrial automation, smart grid, virtual reality, instrumentation, and other vertical markets look to REDCOM EMS to deliver their PCBAs and other electronic assemblies.
