Big Ass Fans adds a 3rd Selective Soldering Machine

May 26, 2020 | A great business connection developed at the end of 2018 when Big Ass Fans (BAF) signed-off to purchase two Vector 300 selective soldering machines from Hentec Industries / RPS Automation. BAF decided to start processing their own PCB's in 2018, and by bringing the PCB assembly in house, it has allowed for better goal achievement, enhanced quality and inventory control, all while reducing overall costs. "We realized that starting up a PCB assembly operation had to be carefully planned, after all, we couldn't chance to tarnish our brand by missing deliveries or compromising our product quality," says Frank Grimard, Director of Manufacturing Engineering at Big Ass Fans. "It was understood early in the planning process that we needed three main ingredients to make this work; experienced talent, world-class manufacturing processes, and quality equipment."
