If you require quality automation with warranties up to 5 years, or wish to sell machines give us a call (517) 521-2020 or email at 4TechUSA.com We are here to help !
4Tech is a global supplier of Circuit Assembly Equipment and Technology. From a single used machine to complete fully Engineered Automated assembly lines. NOTE: We PURCHASE EQUIPMENT. From spare parts inventories and single machines to complete factories. If you are looking for optimal yield on your idle or surplus assets please call our Detroit plant at 313-532-9400.
This video demonstrates a used machine that is for sale. The safety covers and panels were removed by our Engineers for the purpose of this video. This makes for a loud machine. Filming with the camera volume on max so you can hear it all. Our Remanufactured versions of this machine are much quieter.
This Universal instruments model 6241B Axial/Sequencer Insertion machine, has many features that combine to ensure zero defect through hole assembly of nearly all axial components types.
You will notice a digital display flashing test results as the machine assembles the product. This is a highly effective quality control option known as an Expanded Range Verifier (ERV), used to test all components in Real-Time just prior to insertion process. You may also notice a hesitation in the cycle rate. The ERV option has a slight impact on speed.
The machine assembled 176 components per PCB at a cycle rate of 15444 Components per hour. The ERV will test almost any axial format component that can fit on the machine. This ensures the proper components were loaded into the proper locations with the correct orientation for parts with polarity.
The ERV tester is simple to program yet sophisticated enough to capture out of spec components with impressive results. In fact, so much so, that the Verifier has earned the nick name as the Terrifier. As a result may have made use of this option to effectively screen supplier quality.
When the ERV captures a out of spec component, the machine stops and alerts the operator for intervention. The conveyor chain assembly backs up presenting the defect to the operator and the display identifies the component and tolerance failure data. upon replacement the operator simply hits the start button to resume production and the tester retests the part location.
We stock many of these machines in a variety of configurations. In addition, we build them from bare/empty frames up to better than new performance and reliability with the best warranty available.

Experienced circuit board assembly service made available by circuit board manufacturers
Great things about expert circuit board assembly
For anybody who is making plans for carrying out the circuit board assembly in-house at a professional level you are quickly going to realize the actual investment expenditure is extremely high. You will require at the least: one pick and place machine, one stencil printing machine and one reflow oven. Probably you in addition want other similar equipment for examination work and hand soldering tools. Additionally, you’ll need labourforce and expertise which will expand the investment cost considerably. And then when you think about there is little ROI from this form of financial commitment you will definitely immediately make the decision to outsource the circuit board assembly service. And in most cases contracting out the circuit board assembly process to an offsite company is generally much less expensive.
Then there’s the element of quality; a firm focused on circuit board assembly services will unquestionably have the practical knowledge and labourforce to provide great quality. They’ll also put money into their development by continually having the most advanced technology with the intention that the customer gets all the benefits from the modern assembly technologies. It’s likely that you’ll hit a equipment related issue doing in-house assembly if you can not upgrade the devices routinely, by way of example, you might end-up in a predicament where you aren’t able to proficiently assembly the new BGA package for a new processor.
Additionally there is the aspect of quality control. A respectable circuit board assembly house may also have an effective tested quality control service which you might benefit from by not needing to do the quality control in-house. For sure, you’ll want to do another quality control step in-house but it’s good to know at least the pcb’s are all functioning efficiently when they step out of the assembly house.
Down sides of experienced circuit board assembly
One good reason you will not want to outsource the assembly of your project is to guard IP. For those who are working away at some secret project or the most recent concept that will reinvent something, you must keep that as confidential as possible so in that case you could possibly do the circuit board assembly on-site.
Also, there are cases when the turn-around time of a prototype is extremely important so you might not afford to wait one week for your circuit board to return from a experienced assembly line. If that’s the case it might make more sense to complete the assembly in-house.
Expenditure is also a crucial cause you may not like to go with a professional circuit board assembly house, specifically for small enterprises or collectors. Charges for circuit board assembly services have reduced somewhat during the past few years and so this really is less of an issue presently but still you do not see loads of individuals sending their one-time hobby projects to a circuit board assembly house.
