Seica showcase their expanding lines of
test and assembly equipment at APEX 2017

Seica exhibited at the Apex show in San Diego this year showing their expanding lines of test and assembly equipment. The automated Pilot4DV8 was showcased fully automated in a batch line environment. The automated solution will demonstrate a magazine and conveyance solution that will allow customers to load different board part numbers for automated testing. Industrial automation software will be discussed with those interested in full production line monitoring with Seica's new 'standalone' software that can be integrated with not only Seica equipment, but SMT line equipment, ovens, pick & place systems, X-ray and vision systems.  Seica equipment and software are all Factory 4.0 ready. For those interested in RF measurements using a Flying Prober, Seica Inc. was awarded a place in the exhibition hall, specifically for OEMs with newly released innovated solutions showing its high frequency measurement solution. This has been Seica's 4th award at Apex for its innovated product advancements.

The Compact line showed several solutions for production line testing, from ICT , to automotive and RF functional testing. Seica showed 4 products; Compact TK, Compact Multi, and both, the Mini 80 and Mini 200 benchtop ATEs. From very simple ICT testing with a few 100 channels to its high density solutions that perform theircombination testing, Seica has a robust, easy to maintain, and easy to use solution for your production lines. 

Seica's top and bottom selective laser soldering system ,the Firefly, was shown for the first time. This unit is ideal for automotive, high production through put and mil/aero applications. The Firefly is unique in that it requires no nitrogen and can be easily changed from lead to no-lead applications in under 5 minutes. The power consumption of our laser solution is far less than traditional molten solder solutions and easier to maintain and set up. The Firefly can also be easily integrated into assembly lines and a retrofit kit is available for 3
rd party integrators.

In regards to automation, exhibits included a selection of loaders and unloaders. Specifically, the Firefly will be set up with an input magazine and unloader.  Under the name of "Seica Automation", their sister division produces board conveyance systems for their own equipment but for full production lines that may not use Seica equipment. Seica Automation equipment includes, handlers, buffers, loaders, magazines, label applicators, vision inspection cells and rework cells, and all types of board handling solutions under the model names of FLO (standard) and FLEX (custom) Seica is also able to customize a solution for your challenging board handling requirements.

Seica also offered a counter to discuss test services or data regeneration needs. Seica is staffed with a talented crew of test service providers and professionals who can assist with your prototype testing or production needs. Seica gladly provided a quotation for visitors staff to review. 

New for 2017 is Seica's line of distributor products, such as the Modus GmbH, AOI conformal coat and THT inspection system, and SMH flash programming solutions. The Modus system is unique in the market due to its LED scanning system and high resolution capability. Its ability to detect contamination is unprecedented on the market. The need in both the automotive and mil/aero markets are increasing due to the number of product recalls ongoing in 2016.
