No manufacturer wants to experience production line downtime, which is why it’s essential to improve your SMT line productivity with preventative maintenance strategies. Capital Equipment Exchange can not only help you understand the importance of SMT preventive maintenance, but we are also a source for replacement parts on used SMT equipment.
Capital Equipment Exchange strives to stay on top of the latest developments in the used SMT equipment industry and pass that knowledge on to you, including standards protocols like SMEMA and HERMES. The world of surface mount technology and printed circuit board assembly hasn’t seen much innovation in its standards for machine-to-machine (M2M) communication until recently.
Performing quality control tests during the PCB assembly process is essential to streamlined production, which is why we offer a variety of used SMT test equipment and machinery at Capital Equipment Exchange. There are many stages where boards and their components may need to be checked for defects. Different machinery can help this process move faster and easier, decreasing production time.
Capital Equipment Exchange has been in the used PCB and SMT equipment business for so long that we have become experts in the shipping logistics and knowing the best options for our customers. Find out more about the process and which method may be right for you.
Solder paste inspection is one of the most critical processes in the assembly of printed circuit boards, which is why Capital Equipment Exchange offers used automated optical inspection (AOI) equipment to help you find paste defects quickly. It is estimated that up to 50% of errors are found in the solder paste printing process or defective solder joints.
At Capital Equipment Exchange, we restore and offer high-quality used PCB screen printers to improve your manufacturing overhead and workflows. One might argue that the PCB screen printing process is one of the most crucial procedures in assembling quality circuit boards.
Learn more about how AOI equipment from Capital Equipment Exchange may benefit you. The role of automated optical inspection (AOI) systems is crucial for printed circuit board assembly. It’s one of several types of tests that are used in the manufacturing of PCBs, along with in-circuit and flying probe tests. Together they ensure the process is free of defaults and production can run efficiently, keeping costs down and revenues up.
With over 20 years of experience in buying, restoring, and selling used SMT equipment, Capital Equipment Exchange technicians have seen several common issues that cause unexpected downtime in SMT equipment. While we can't promise your machines will never go down, we do hope we can help you keep production lines running at capacity as much as possible.
As an industry leader in the sale of used SMT equipment, Capital Equipment Exchange is committed to offering many benefits to PCB manufacturers. We believe that when we invest in our client relationships and build a name that is synonymous with integrity, everybody wins.
Capital Equipment Exchange has a range of used wave solder machines and used reflow ovens to help you increase production and solder components to your printed circuit boards (PCB). But which process is better? It depends on the type of PCB assembly and production process you are using. Regardless of the process, precision soldering is necessary for the function of any printed circuit board.
