Rocket EMS Improves Inspection Capabilities with Scienscope’s X-Scope 1800


Reading time ( words)

Scienscope International, a leading American supplier of cabinet-style micro-focus X-ray systems, announces the purchase of an X-Scope 1800 X-ray inspection system by Rocket EMS, a Silicon Valley-based full-service EMS supplier, for its new Carson City, NV facility.

Jacob Andresen, Manufacturing Engineer at Rocket EMS, said “In a time with crazy supply chain problems, we were in dire need of a 2-D X-ray machine as we ramped up production in Carson City.” While visiting the IPC APEX EXPO in early 2022, the company came across Scienscope. After learning about the machine, Andresen said Rocket EMS ordered the X-Scope 1800 X-ray inspection on the spot.

He was most impressed with the quick lead time. “Lead times were several months for most manufacturers; however, Scienscope’s machine was able to be delivered upon receipt of a PO.” In addition to the lead time, he said that he was impressed with the affordable price point and that the programming/reporting capabilities were what Rocket EMS was looking for.

Printed Circuit Boards: Past the Lobby and Onto the Floor

08/08/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
There has not been a time in recent memory when the U.S. legislative body is putting as much focus on the microelectronics industries. One bill, the CHIPS Act, was signed into law last year. A new bill introduced this year seeks to allocate funding for printed circuit board fabrication. In this exclusive interview, our team spoke with Travis Kelly, CEO of Isola Group and president of the Printed Circuit Board Association, and U.S. Rep. Blake Moore (R-Utah), who has co-sponsored the bill now before the House. Travis and Blake both express optimism about onshoring domestic production, but the realities of the legislative calendar may pose some risks.

How Important Is Trust?

If you work for a U.S. defense prime contractor, do you have concerns that the controlled unclassified information (CUI) for your printed circuit boards, your printed circuit board assemblies, and your cable and wire harnesses is safe? What about the design and the development process for your products? Is the controlled technical information (CTI) safe and protected? Are the suppliers that your company selected maintaining a quality system, a supply chain risk management process, a security system to protect products and services from unauthorized access, and a Chain of Custody policy for electronic and physical materials?

IPC Mexico Continues to Grow

07/20/2022 | Barry Matties and Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
IPC Mexico has been growing for the past few years, and it’s no wonder: Mexico has become a major hub in the world of PCB manufacturing, spurred in part by reshoring as companies pulled work back from China during the pandemic. As the country’s maquiladoras thrived, IPC began expanding the Mexican educational and training operations, and the group recently named Lorena Villanueva as director of IPC Mexico. Andy Shaughnessy and Barry Matties recently spoke with Lorena and IPC Vice President of Education David Hernandez about IPC Mexico’s growth, as well as the office’s plans to provide PCB manufacturers the training resources they need to succeed.
