Javad EMS Adds Large Board Line

Dec 20, 2014 | avad EMS (JEMS)announces that it has added a large board line to continue meeting customer needs. With the use of HDI printed circuit boards, more densely populated boards using high pin count BGAs, QFNs and LGAs, micro BGAs, and smaller and smaller devices including 10005s, it seems that assemblies should be getting smaller in size. However, in some cases it is the inverse: printed circuit boards are getting larger. This has prompted JEMS to make a sizeable investment to provide large board capability to customers. With a planned expenditure and installation of more than $1.45 million in Q3/14, the company will have the capability of handling boards that are up to 22x26" in an in-line manufacturing process to complement its three other existing Juki surface mount lines.
