PACE Delivers 100th Repair System to DLA


Reading time ( words)

PACE Worldwide recently delivered the 100th PRC 2000 Miniature/Microminiature Electronic Repair System to Defense Logistics Agency Troop Support, part of a $1.2M contract requiring delivery of 384 total systems.

DLA procured the PRC 2000s in support of NAVSEA's Miniature/Microminiature/Module Test and Repair (2M/MTR) Program, which PACE has been an active participant for over 40 years. The 2M/MTR Program provides the tools and techniques required for certified Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and Coast Guard electronic repair technicians to perform highly reliable, high quality repairs on complex circuit card assemblies.

Utilized at all major US and International Military depots, the PRC 2000 is the primary electronic repair kit employed in shipboard repair shops, mobile maintenance vans and thousands of intermediate maintenance facilities worldwide. The system is a venerable workhorse that has been available since the early 1990s. System quality, reliability, longevity, durability and sustainability have been proven through millions of military operating hours.

Over 10,000 PRC 2000s have been manufactured (3,000 fielded for the 2M/MTR Program), many of which are still in use after 20+ years. Often described as the "ultimate PCB rework and repair system," the multifunction PRC 2000 tackles just about any thru-hole or SMT application, and is well suited for multilayer repairs on damaged or prototype PCBs. Advanced capabilities include conductive, resistance and hot-air soldering, continuous-vacuum desoldering, conformal coating removal, solder paste dispensing, miniature machining/drilling, component handling and thermal wire stripping.

Improving Solder Paste Printing

12/12/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
Of the three elements involved in the solder paste printing process—stencil, solder paste, and printer—the stencil is considered one of the major factors affecting the transfer efficiency, accuracy, and consistency, of solder pastes into the pads, especially with the continuing trend towards miniaturization.

Equipment Matters in Solder Paste Printing

12/06/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
The solder paste printing process has always been considered a major contributor to yield loss. According to many studies, solder paste printing accounts for up to 70% of all PCB assembly defects. For the December issue of SMT Magazine, we interviewed experts in the solder paste printing process to learn more about the key issues leading to this huge percentage of defects, and the technology developments that are addressing these challenges and improving yields in the process.

What Matters Most is Communication

12/04/2017 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
While there may be new techniques and strategies, technologies, equipment, tools, and materials to employ and utilize, there is always one thing that will ensure the manufacturing/ assembly success of your product: communication. Communication between the designer and the assembler will help improve the manufacturability and assembly of the final product—even before the board design gets fabricated.
