A. We provide services in four areas: Our core service is Automated Surface Mount and Manual Through-hole Assembly. We also provide Custom Cable and Harness Assemblies, Build-to-Spec Test Boxes/Equipment racks, and Electronic Rework and Repair.
A. Our five surface mount lines (3) in Santa Clara, and (2) in Malaysia, utilize Juki surface mount placement equipment which is designed for multiple set ups and tear downs, and quick program changeovers. These machines are followed by two re-flow lines, a 7-zone and a 5-zone oven, to support both tin-lead and lead-free process builds. Through hole components are manually placed on our slide line and are either soldered by hand or wave soldered, depending on volume and process (tin-lead or lead-free).
A. To provide a competitive proposal, our quote staff would like to have any electronic assembly and board information available. Three critical items include an assembly drawing, gerbers, and a bill of materials file (with the name of the manufacturer and the manufacturer?s part number). In addition to quantity and number of releases/turn-time requirements, we also need to know who is supplying which materials (boards, components, etc.). We can provide full turn-key services if needed. You can also locate a check-list at our online form http://www.whizzsystems.com/onlinequote.
A. Yes. We support low-volume lead-free builds through our automation and manual through-hole processes. Through-hole components are manually placed and soldered with lead-free solder.
A. Low to medium volume is one unit (automated or hand-built) to several thousand per year. This can be driven by any one of the following limiting factors: number of unique line items on the bill of materials, technology, product mix, required product turn-time, and available resource capacity.
A. We are placing BGAs and fine-pitch components (0402s, QFPs, leadless, etc.). All BGAs are 100% x-rayed for alignment verification.
A. We are providing conformal coating processes using a hand spray application. If required, individual components will be masked.
A. Whizz Systems is currently building products to meet IPC Class II standards. Our employees have received both IPC-J-STD-001 and IPC-A-610 training.
A. Yes. We use functional test equipment and setups designed and/or built by Whizz Systems and/or on equipment supplied by our customers.
