CEM invests in high reliability

UK contract electronics manufacturer, Axiom Manufacturing Services, continues to expand its customer base and product portfolio in the high reliability defence and aerospace market with continued investment in process capability.

The latest addition to its technology roadmap, the Asymtek jet dispensing platform, is said to ensure process repeatability and control. Precision jet dispensing of epoxy based adhesives ensures that critical components are effectively ruggedised against shock and vibration. It may also provide a potential alternative to potting, which can be linked to shrinkage issues. This investment is coupled with the company’s recent acquisition of an automated selective soldering system, which helps ensure precision soldering of challenging features.

Head of engineering and quality at Axiom, Mike Jones, commented: “It is vitally important that we continue to invest in people and technology that strengthen Axiom’s ability to support customers high reliability environments. The latest investments provide us with the enhanced capability and infrastructure to stay ahead of our customers’ technology roadmaps.”
