Solutions

 

 

SMT Taping Metal Sockets

NuWay is eager to help customers solve problems, reduce cost and shorten lead times.
Here are a few examples of how NuWay’s talent and experience has helped customers:

Solution 1
Issue: A mechanical engineer at NuWay’s customer needed a gold-plated socket to mount in a printed circuit board and hold a sensing device. He could not find the right configuration off the shelf, and he knew that he would need them on tape and reel for automated assembly. He asked NuWay for help.

Solution: NuWay identified a high-quality source for a custom-made socket, for a price lower than a standard model. NuWay also developed a custom SMT carrier tape. Prototypes were manufactured, taped and approved by the end user. NuWay went into production and has shipped over 350,000 pieces to date.

 

Speaker Soldered Wires

Solution 2
Issue: A miniature speaker with permanent magnet, purchased from NuWay, began to pick up metallic fragments during the customer's manufacturing process. By the time the unit was ready to ship, it had many fragments on it. Ultimately, the unit was unusable even though it met all specifications.

Solution: NuWay reviewed the problem and found an inexpensive piece of removable tape to apply to the delicate face of the speaker. The tape could be easily and safely removed at the end of the process. It ensured that no fragments would stick to the speaker, eliminating a cause of scrap and an aggravating problem.

 

SMT Taping Kapton Pad

Solution 3
Issue: A PCB assembly company found themselves with thousands of SMT connectors in inventory, on reels, ready to place. But their pick-and-place equipment was unable to pick them up because of gaps and irregular features on the tops of the connectors.

Solution: NuWay was able to open the carrier tape, apply an adhesive Kapton pad to the top of each part, re-seal the carrier, and rewind the reels. The adhesive pads were circles and rectangles kept in stock at NuWay for just this purpose. The turnaround was fast, and helped the customer make use of thousands of dollars of otherwise unusable connectors.

 

SMT Taping MTI Clip

Solution 4
Issue: A manufacturer of automotive controls approached NuWay’s booth at a trade show, showing a handful of metal clips designed for through-hole assembly to a PC board. He needed them packaged in SMT-style carrier tape for pick-and-place assembly.

Solution: This was tricky, because the part had long legs and needed to be held in a precise position for high-speed assembly. NuWay developed a custom carrier tape. Taped samples were submitted and approved on the first round, and NuWay went into production. NuWay also suggested and provided an extra-large diameter reel to reduce cost. In addition, NuWay set up a program to re-use the reels multiple times, further reducing the cost to the customer. Parts are now taped regularly with same-day and next-day service.

 

Electronic Products Supplies

Solution 5
Issue: When a customer's business suddenly grew 400%, they worried that NuWay would not be able to keep up with their increased demand for cable assemblies and testing.

Solution: NuWay met with and assured the customer that increased volume would not be an issue. NuWay dedicated staff to build their product, added to its second shift operation, and enhanced internal processes to meet the customer's goals.
