Lower prices, faster delivery

Sub-contract electronics manufacturing company, Herald Electronics, has invested in new Mydata surface mount equipment including a high-capacity MY19e pick and place machine and a MY500 solder paste jet printer. We are engaged in a continuous improvement process that translates into lower prices and shorter delivery times of the highest quality products to our customers. Our latest investment in the MY19e and MY500 means we now have a Best in Class manufacturing capability to compliment our exacting process controls in line with a well trained, experienced and motivated workforce said Christina Spicer, Production Manager of Herald Electronics.

The purpose of this investment is to ratchet Heralds customer service capability into becoming a Best in Class supplier that provides a seamless extension to the customers own quality process and enables them to exploit Heralds expertise in new product introduction. It also gives our customers the confidence that Herald can build top quality, high density products when designing the latest high technology components into new products.

By eliminating the need to use stencils for applying solder paste to boards, the new MY500 at Herald Electronics allows the company to provide an exceptionally fast response time on new products and on modifications to existing products. Since the MY500 allows precise control over solder deposition on a pad-by-pad basis, it also greatly reduces the need for reworking, even with boards that use high density components.
