As a Full-Service Contract Manufacturer of custom wire harnesses, cable assemblies, printed circuit board assemblies and electronic box builds, ICTC Manufacturing Solutions understands the importance of maintaining the upper hand within the manufacturing industry. ICTC is located in Brooksville, Florida and also has facilities the Philippines and China. ICTC continues to grow its US manufacturing base by developing smart practices all the while investing in new technology.
ICTC recently increased its domestic printed circuit board assembly capabilities by adding Universal Fuzion’s flexible placement equipment to its existing automated capabilities. This equipment has the capacity to take components and place them on circuit boards at an exponential rate of 16,500 components per hour. The machine handles components including: Matrix tray, Tape & Reel, and Tube. Universal Fuzion is able to place package sizes from 0201’s – 150mm^2 package sizes including connectors and odd form parts up to 25mm tall. In addition to its speed, the additional line of the machine tells 27-micron magnification to tell its placement accuracy, making this process more efficient.
As a result of utilizing this cutting edge technology and automated equipment, the manufacturing process for circuit boards becomes more efficient. Through increased accuracy and productivity, any company using circuit boards will benefit from Universal Fuzion. Ultimately, this is conducive to ICTC’s strength in its manufacturing model that works to protect intellectual property domestically, while manufacturing more labor sensitive and less IP sensitive sub assemblies abroad. With new technology that allows for more efficient manufacturing, key components of ICTC’s clients’ products are then kept within the U.S. As development in manufacturing technology continues to advance alongside its focus on protecting American IP, ICTC continues to parallel this progression, which has led to a steady growth rate of ICTC’s business worldwide.
