Asian Circuits upgrades China facility

Toronto-based PCB assembly services firm, Asian Circuits, has completed its expansion and technology upgrade of its PCB Fab and Assembly Facility.
Located in Shenzhen, China, the facility has been expanded to over 35'000 square feet including the addition of new assembly and testing equipment. This expansion project will enable Asian Circuits to provide its contract manufacturing services more quickly with greater output in order to accommodate a growing demand for its services.

Despite economic uncertainty, 2012 was banner year for Asian Circuits, which obtained a 15 percent year-over-year growth in revenues. With the growing demand for printed circuit board (PCB) printing and assembly services, the facility's expansion will ease the company’s capacity constraints.

“We quickly moved to invest in technology for our operations to ensure service quality remains top-notch as we continue to keep up with growing technology demand,” said Qin Mei Kuan, Technical Support Specialist of Asian Circuits. “We also are looking to hire more skilled staff members in 2013 to keep pace with client demand.”

The equipment upgrade included:
  • Juki KE-1080: An 80-component high-precision, high-productivity placement mounter for printed circuit boards.
  • Ekra X5 Professional automated screen printer: used for solder paste and/or glue applications on PCBs, ceramics or glass substrates, with an extended printing area of up to 508x508mm (20 x 20 inches)
  • The SRT rework station: provides for lead free BGA and micro BGA.
  • Nicolet X-ray, Yes tech AOI, Mirtec inline fully automatic AOI and 5DX X-ray inspection machines for the BGA inspection process to ensure consistent production quality.
