Adcotron is currently implementing a manufacturing execution system (MES), which will make shop floor information available in "real" time while tracking ECOs, manufacturing defects, efficiency and operator's throughput. It also allows the company to respond more rapidly to changing requirements and conditions. The most important aspect of this add-on module software to our existing MRP system is to provide information from a single source. With the completion of the MES, Adcotron and our customers will potentially benefit from the following:

 

 

■ Reduced waste, re-work and scrap.

■ A more accurate capture of cost-efficiency.

■ Increased uptime and reduced machine downtime.

■ More automatic and Paperless Workflow Activities.

■ Materials planning for just-in-time (JIT).

■ Statistical Quality Control (SQC) and Statistical Process Control (SPC).

Adcotron acquired an Acculogic's boundary scan for the Test Department. It enhances the debugging and troubleshooting capabilities of electronic devices and board testing. Acculogic's comprehensive line of Boundary Scan Test tools can be effectively used for the entire product life cycle, starting with design verification and validation while continuing into pilot production and manufacturing. Use of these tools in field service and repair depots can help further to reduce test costs and cycle times.

Boundary Scan test (JTAG) is a test methodology based on the IEEE 1149.1 standard. Compliant Semiconductors, when installed on a circuit board, allow the interconnecting nets and digital clusters such as memory devices to be tested using a simple external physical set-up. Boundary Scan (JTAG) also improve fault detection and offers a comprehensive board-level protocol for programming flash and other programmable devices.

Adcotron has added an Acculogic's Flying Probe System, Sprint 4510, to the Test Department. It requires no test fixtures, has few restrictions on board access, and can test boards with virtually unlimited number of nets. This system also allow us to develop test programs in a shorter period of time. It is a beneficial part of any PCBA test strategy, serving both prototype and production volume test requirements, providing maximum flexibility for the improvement of the electronics test capabilities.

■ SMT Pick and Place Machine - Fuji, Model XP243E

■ Screen Printer - ESE Model US-7000X

■ Reflow Oven - BTU, Model E30-9600

■ Batch Cleaner - ECD, Model E30-9600

■ AOI Inspection Station - Mirtec, Model MV-3L

■ Rework Station - VJ Electronix, Model Summit 1800

■ XRF RoHS Analyzer, XMET 7000

■ Unisoft, OneFACTORY manufacturing software

 

"Our business is increasing, strong, and robust. 2013 was a great success and we expect another productive year in 2014," said Agnes Young, the President and CEO at Adcotron.

Adcotron EMS, Inc. is announcing the expansion of its factory in South Boston, MA, taking the total occupied square footage from 35,000 to 45,000 beginning in January 2013. The additional 10,000 sq. ft. will increase the company's manufacturing space by approximately 30% and potentially provide 10-15 more new jobs in the next 2-3 years.

"Driving force of this expansion is a result from our continuous growth and increasing demands on system assemblies and order fulfillment operations," said Agnes Young, President and CEO of Adcotron. "We have been successful in adding a good number of new customers and box-build programs in 2012 and aim to advance this trend in the future years. In addition, to support our growth, we have been hiring additional personnel for various departments and adding new equipment in certain areas. Increasing our factory space is another progression of realizing our business expansion and corporate strategies."

Adcotron EMS, Inc. will soon have in-house conformal coating capability added to its manufacturing services. "We were using third party services in the past," said Alan Wong, Director of Sales and Marketing at Adcotron. "However, the outside service invariably increased handlings and prolonged the product manufacturing cycles. As we continue to drive for process improvements and shorten manufacturing leadtime, we are determined to establish our in-house conformal coating capabilities to better serve our customers. The new PVA conformal coating system will be operational in the upcoming new year of January 2013.
