VAS Engineering Selects New Nordson Assure FLEX E Component Counter

Oct 06, 2022

Nordson TEST & INSPECTION, a division of the Nordson Corporation (Nasdaq: NDSN), announced that VAS Engineering has successfully installed an Assure FLEX Component Counter and has seamlessly integrated it into their inventory management process. VAS Engineering has provided San Diego with quality contract manufacturing services for the electronics industry since 1987.

Raj Vora, Manufacturing Engineer for VAS, stated “Counting components automatically is becoming the standard in recent years. Tying the entire inventory process together by linking the Assure FLEX to automated storage towers like the JUKI ISM, dynamic shelving and an ERP system is the next level, and that is what we have accomplished here at VAS Engineering over the past year. The total solution between the two companies gives us peace of mind and complete control over 100% of our inventory from incoming, to end of life. Since the beginning of this integration, it has drastically reduced any line-down time caused by running out of components unexpectedly.”

The Assure FLEX includes an internal conveyor system, built specifically to integrate directly into an inventory management system, standard conveyors, or other robotic loading mechanisms. “It is truly one of a kind and opens up many opportunities to improve inventory control,” stated Todd O’Neil, Business Development Manager at Nordson Test & Inspection. In addition, he stated, “It also gives us an opportunity to work closely with other suppliers to offer the best solution at each factory, so they feel they are getting the best of everything.” It is the only X-ray component counter in the world that can be controlled directly from such systems. The Assure FLEX can be configured in such that it is “hands-off”, not requiring any operator involvement for counting. The Assure FLEX also can be used as a standard stand-alone machine for quick counts of reels.

VAS circuit boards travel 20,000-ft below sea level, 30,000-ft in the sky, and everywhere in between. VAS Engineering’s ISO 9001:2015 Certification, combined with its state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment and dedicated staff, allow the company to provide high quality service and quick turnaround on orders while maintaining a competitive edge. The tremendous growth that VAS Engineering has experienced is a direct result of its dedication to providing customers with quality products and outstanding service with on-time delivery.
