Customers win with ADCO Circuits’ continued capital investments

Three new world-class SMT lines boost efficiency, accuracy, and quality

ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich. (Tues. July 20, 2021) – ADCO Circuits’ culture of excellence is reflected in its continuous capital investments that provide customers with unmatched quality, on-time delivery, and a culture of precision and accuracy. ADCO’s most recent investment is three brand-new, world-class Yamaha YSM20R surface mount machines. With the world’s fastest mounting speed in its class, the machines feature a new wide-scan camera with improved component adaptability.

ADCO’s three flexible high-speed production lines feature top-of-the-line equipment that incorporates solder paste inspection (SPI) and automated optical inspection (AOI). These technologies allow customers to optimize boards, which minimizes defects and maximizes accuracy.

Before the current capital improvements in the SMT line, ADCO’s entire equipment list experienced upgrades. ADCO has an impressive suite of equipment, including Koh-Young SPI, Yamaha pick and place machines, Yamaha post reflow 3-D AOI, and X-Ray for fine pitch SMT and BGA components. ADCO also offers through-hole soldering via two Ersa select-wave lines and one Electrovert wave line.

“This capital investment allows us to keep abreast of the continuing miniaturization and complexity of electronic components,” says Marc Damman, ADCO’s Vice President of Sales. “The complex industries we serve, like aerospace, medical device, and defense, rely on our consistency, accuracy, and precision. Our continued investments in equipment, people, and processes allow us to stay ahead with quick handling of today’s component challenges.”

ADCO’s pristine 53,000 sq. ft. facility and its advanced equipment set it apart from other leading high-performance manufacturers and assemblers. Automation throughout the plant includes component storage, paperless documentation, and robotics.

Of particular note are the six automated vertical storage units that span 18.5 feet high and create enormous material handling and data management efficiencies. In addition, automated reel counters and bar code labeling support WIP inventory counts. ADCO’s fully automated warehouse capabilities benefit customers by ensuring superior levels of accuracy and efficiency with every order.
