Insitu: Moving Mountains in a Mountain Community


Reading time ( words)

The Columbia River Gorge in the Pacific Northwest offers breathtaking views; and for a company that manufactures unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), it also offers a backdrop for growth and opportunity. Boeing subsidiary Insitu recently cemented its commitment to the River Gorge community by opening a 127,000 square foot production facility and office space in Bingen, Wash. The technology company has come a long way from its humble beginnings in a small garage in Bigen over 20 years ago. “We’ve grown this company into an information-based company,” said Ryan Hartman, Insitu President and CEO. Hartman added, “It is a prosperous business in a town that is growing and economically healthy.”

Nearly 800 employees build and support Insitu’s UAS line of ScanEagles, Integrators and ground stations. Boeing’s cameras captured the first images inside of Insitu’s new production facility, Eagle Point. Watch the video for a peek inside and learn more about where high-tech meets mountain height.

Stencil Printing Techniques for Challenging Heterogeneous Assembly Applications

04/16/2018 | Mark Whitmore and Jeff Schake, ASM Assembly Systems
A new generation of near microscopic size SMT chip capacitors has appeared in the market, known as either 0201 or 008004. This article investigates and characterizes the stencil printing process for compatibility with M0201 capacitor assembly. Effects of circuit board quality, stencil thickness, and stencil nano-coating are evaluated against solder paste volume transfer efficiency and raw-volume print distribution.

The Effect of Area Shape and Area Ratio on Solder Paste Printing Performance

12/28/2017 | Stefan Härter, et al.
The ongoing miniaturization trend in the SMT production induces new challenges and highly integrated systems. In passive components, the miniaturization leads to the introduction of the EIA size 01005 or smaller. Despite numerous publications in this field already addressing the printing of such devices, a defined wholly optimized process remains unsolved and inspires further novel research ideas on this topic.
